Trivia

  • It is not advised to use Autodidact together with Stake Out Stake Out}}. The Great Healing Skill Checks Skill Checks}} from Stake Out override the bonus progression obtained by Autodidact, meaning the benefits of the 5 % bonus Great Skill Check will begin to hinder you after 3 Tokens.
  • Autodidact can be combined with Solidarity Solidarity}} to potentially heal both you and the other Survivor at the same time once enough Tokens were obtained.
