Sifu – Complete Skill and Reward Unlock and Usage Guide

Sifu is a unique combat-based game that will take players on a pleasant yet action-packed journey. You will get to beat up a lot of bad guys on your path to revenge. Lots to do and unlock as well new skills and talents to show off!

Speaking of talents, Sifu has a unique system of unlocking and upgrading skills. There are certain shrines where you can spend your XP to unlock new and improved skills using the Skill Tree Menu. In this guide I will be discussing all of them and what are the criteria and stats to unlock them.
