Forspoken cloaks: all cloak locations and abilities

Frey is from New York, but she can’t wear her normal attire for long once she’s whisked away into the fantasy world of Athia. Among Frey’s new duds is her flowing cloak. Aside from looking awesome, this is one piece of gear in Forspoken that you can swap out and upgrade for stat buffs. It may not seem like a particularly strong armor piece, but once you see how much a good cloak can improve your abilities, you’ll be glad to know how to get them all.

What cloaks do

A cloak menu in Forspoken.

Cloaks serve as Frey’s primary piece of gear, along with necklaces and nail designs. They give different stat boosts, can be upgraded, and have a nice visual flair too. You will get them through a variety of tasks, such as defeating bosses, found in the world, and completing quests.

Best cloaks to wear

  • Unbroken: This cloak is a beast. The more crits you dish out, the more HP and Surge magic you get, plus Cuff Counters restore Surge even more.
  • Lief: Absorbing HP is amazing, especially when you need to conserve healing items, and the extra damage on your magic is just icing on the cake.
  • Hooded Cloak: Getting a crit is exciting, but this cloak lets you ride that momentum further by getting more damage right after.
  • Bonifate: Not only do you get a higher chance at crits, but also the chance to inflict poison on an enemy when one lands, which is perfect for tanky foes and bosses.

How to change cloaks

Changing out your cloak is as simple as going into the Gear tab on your menu, selecting your cloak above the necklace option, and then cycling through all the ones you’ve unlocked and equipping whichever you choose.

The best traits in Hogwarts Legacy
A teacher teaches students in Hogwarts Legacy.

For the first time ever, you can not only create your own witch or wizard and enroll as a student of the titular academy in Hogwarts Legacy, but you can also customize them with tons of clothing and gear options. As with most RPGs, the gear you collect from various chests and as quest rewards will have their own stats associated with them, but you also have the ability to further improve your equipment with traits. This is a fairly in-depth system, so if you've been slacking on your studies, we'll walk you through everything you need to know about traits and which ones are the best in Hogwarts Legacy.
How to get traits

Traits in Hogwarts Legacy are extra buffs you can apply to your gear. Each piece of gear, based on what rarity it is, will have trait slots of different levels that you can weave your traits into. Traits can be either offensive or defensive, but in various ways.

How to unlock augments in Fortnite

Every new chapter of Fortnite is a massive event. While seasonal changes bring plenty of minor tweaks and additions, it's almost always when a new chapter rolls around that major overhauls or new mechanics are introduced. Fortnite Chapter 4 was no exception, and aside from the extreme changes the island underwent, it brought one very important change to gameplay that wmakes a huge difference when going for that illusive victory royal (it isn't easy to win Fortnite, after all).

Augments, well, augment the game. There are a few challenges that somewhat introduce what these are, but they leave out almost all the important details for you to find out on your own. Augments need to be considered, and deeply understood, not only for when you get them yourself but to know what new tricks your opponents could have up their sleeves. Before you get taken by surprise, here's a complete breakdown of how to unlock augments and how they work in Fortnite.
What are augments?
Augments, or Reality Augments, are essentially a new perk system introduced into Fortnite. There are currently 22 augments in the game, but with more to come in future updates. You can get access to multiple augments during a single match, but augments do not carry over after a match is finished, whether you win or lose. These perks can range from modifying certain weapon types to granting buffs for performing actions, and much more. There are no bad augments, so you will want to get as many as possible.

Fortnite Guardian Shield: locations and how to use
Guardian Shield in Fortnite.

In January, Epic Games introduced a handful of new changes, including the removal of many Christmas-themed items, and its first new item of 2023: the Guardian Shield, which adds another layer of strategy when used correctly. This new item is tied to a series of in-game challenges, incentivizing players to give it a try. But where can you find the Guardian Shield and how does it work?
Where to find the Guardian Shield

Unfortunately, there isn't a way to guarantee getting a Guardian Shield, as they appear as random drops from chests across the map. With that in mind, we suggest visiting high-traffic areas that contain lots of chests -- preferably spots with Oathbound Chests. These are the large white chests that contain rarer loot and can be found in main hubs that aren't covered in snow, such as The Citadel. Regular chests yield Guardian Shields, too, though. We had luck finding them at Lonely Labs, but other areas contain the Guardian Shield, as well. You can also pick one up from eliminated enemies.
