salt and sacrifice it borrows mechanics from all genres. His version of the outfitting kit comes straight out of final fantasy twelfth, as beginning characters just can’t equip the best weapons and armor. You must manually unlock the capacity to do so.

How to equip higher level weapons and armor in Salt and Sacrifice
As you level up in salt and sacrifice, you will gain the ability to activate the many nodes of the Tree of Skill grid. Most of these nodes increase a single stat point by one, meaning your progression will be slow but steady.

Unlocking the ability to use or wield level 5 gear will see you spend thousands and thousands of Salt to activate all necessary skill grid nodes.

If you focused only on getting to level 5, you might have a lot of work to unlock any other skills, weapons, or armor types. We recommend that you branch out a bit, as increasing your vitality and stamina is important so you don’t end up as a stain on the flooreven if doing so requires a few extra skill grid nodes.
