Roots of Pacha Ideas List & Unlock Requirements

You don't have to struggle like the people from the Stone Age did.

The stone age was a difficult time to be in, but it was also a period of great discovery. That’s why Roots of Pacha is so fun! Instead of normal unlocks, Roots of Pacha immersively allows players to discover Ideas that will give them items, recipes, and more. If you need help “thinking” up these ideas, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a list of all of them and their unlock requirements.

All Ideas in Roots of Pacha and How to Unlock Them
