Released on the 15th of December 2022, Blacktail has come out of nowhere as a blast and has made its way to the screens of many players. The epic yet dark story with some realistic graphics of a vibrant fairy tale world sprinkled with some intense archery combats, Blacktail will undeniably make you sit on the edge of your seats. The story starts with you taking on the role of 16-year-old Yaga, who was exiled from a medieval Slavic settlement after being suspected of witchcraft.
As the story progresses Yaga must make rational decisions and maintain her sanity while dealing with a variety of enemies and making difficult choices as she struggles to survive in Blacktail. Sooner or later you will also come across morality (which is what this guide is all about), morality dictates the kind of ending the little girl will experience later on in Blacktail.
Thus, in this guide, we will be helping you with everything you need to know about morality in Blacktail. So without any further delay, let’s jump right into the game.
As discussed earlier morality dictates the kind of ending the little girl will experience later on in Blacktail thus Yaga must battle her inner demons in order to stay sane. Players have the freedom to select between Yaga’s good and evil sides but even if they ever second-guess their choice in, they can change their decision by using The Mage’s Staff after defeating it at the Crystal Tower.
Goods Deeds & Evil Deeds
The actions that fall under the category of good deeds include feeding a starving hedgehog, releasing a trapped bird, helping Babok and Mr. Larva, etc. It all really relies on how Yaga treats the animals in the forest and how she decides to collect her resources. You will be notified that you have performed a good deed by a sun appearing on your screen.
As far as the bad deeds are concerned, wiping out the beehive, killing any innocent soul, and making a deal with Boruta all fall under the category of bad deeds. You will be notified that you have performed a bad deed by a moon appearing on your screen.
It’s critical to pay attention to your morality because it will influence your skills and reveal unique skills. If Yaga’s moral stance is more on the positive side you will unlock more positive skills and if the stance is on the negative side you will unlock more negative skills. You will have to keep an eye on Yaga’s Moral Stance in order to acquire the desired Skills because she will also be assessed at a specific location later in the game, which will change it.
