Hexes are bonus attributes that players can unlock by unlocking a certain number of skills. Most skills are categorized under a certain Hex which is indicated by the Hex logo on the top of each skill. There are four Hexes: Hare Hex, Goat Hex, Raven Hex, and Snake Hex. Each Hex provides a different bonus, and players can select which Hex they wish to activate by opening the cauldron from the Hut. Only one Hex can be active at a time.
