If you are familiar with My time at Portia, you might be familiar with its skill tree system. As you leveled up, you would earn a skill point that you could invest in three different perk trees. While a similar system is in place in My time at Sandrock, there are some notable changes. This guide will provide information on new knowledge skills in My time at Sandrock Early Access and how to respect them.

My Time at Sandrock: The Best Ways to Earn Money

Since My time at Sandrock is still in early access, not all knowledge skill perks are available in the current version of the game. By the time the game fully releases, most, if not all, of the skill tree nodes will likely be unlockable if you have enough points.

How to respec skill points

Acupuncture MTaS

If you ever need to respec your skill points, you can visit NPC Fang at his clinic in the northern part of town. It provides acupuncture services that reset your knowledge skill trees. You can choose to reset individual trees or all four at once. You will need to pay 10 Gols for each skill point you have assigned in the skill tree you have chosen.

My Time in Sandrock Early Access is available from May 26, 2022 on PC via Steam and the Epic Games Store.
