Cult of the Lamb Tarot Cards Guide

With dangers lurking about everywhere, it is essential to have power-ups at your disposal in Cult of the Lamb. These free power-ups in Cult of the Lamb come in the form of Tarot Cards. This guide will help you learn about the Tarot Cards and how to unlock them in Cult of the Lamb.

What Are Tarot Cards

Every cult needs something special that makes the followers of the cult better ten all outsiders. For Cult of the Lamb, you get Tarot Cards, that basically act as power-ups that you can equip and get bonuses from these cards.

The buffs that your Tarot Cards provide you’re not permanent. These buffs will only last as long as you are in the dungeon without dying. If you die or return to the cult, your buffs and power-ups will be removed and you will be normal again.

You get your first Tarot Card very early in the game, and as you progress, you will find even more Tarot Cards with different power-ups. On occasion, you might even fight the stronger version of the same Tarot Card.

The strength of the tarot card is denoted by the ‘+’ sign in front of the name of the card. There are three variants of each tarot Card, the basic, with one + sign and the strongest, with ++ sign.

To equip Tarot Cards, you need to visit Clauneck, the Tarot Card Reader. Clauneck will equip you with the Tarot Card for that dungeon run. You can select from the collection of the Tarot Cards you have to equip and get the power up.
