Choosing Traits in Crab God

After completing a stage of migration in Crab God, your Crablings will each receive a minimum bounty of food to increase their level, and if you have extra food in your stockpile, you can allocate it to any Crablings that you want to boost further.

Your Crabling colony in Crab God must rely on Traits to further empower itself in order to protect the Temple. When a Crabling reaches a new level, they'll be able to pick a new Trait from three randomized options that gives them a substantial buff for as long as they're alive.

Below we've listed the best possible Traits to give your Crablings that we've found so far. Keep in mind that Traits are randomized each time, so it may take a while for certain ones to pop up. As your Crablings reach higher levels, rare Traits (indicated by gold or purple glow) will start to appear in the selection menu, and you'll want to grab as many of those as possible.

All in all, you can go one of two ways with choosing Traits. You can either give your Crablings a diverse assortment of buffs (e.g. - attack stat, gardening speed, Favour boost, etc) to make them well-rounded in all tasks, or you can allocate a specific type of buff to certain Crablings you prefer to keep in a particular role. For example, giving only Builder-related buffs to your designated Builder Crabling.

It's all a matter of what works better for you, but when you're playing on the higher difficulties, you'll want to choose your Traits carefully.
