Barkskin trait location in Remnant 2

Barkskin Trait in Remnant 2 unlocks automatically after obtaining Doe’s Eye from an NPC, Meidra. She can be found near a tree in the deepest parts of The Far Woods dungeon of Yaesha region. Meidra has an appearance of a glowing Fairy, and she appears once players approach the tree with purple leaves.

From the starting point of The Far Woods, keep going deep into the forest until you reach The Dappled Glave checkpoint near the very end of the dungeon. The forest is teeming with hostile wildlife and foes, so make sure you are aptly prepared to take them down.

The Dappled Glave checkpoint’s location can be random for players even on the same run. But don’t worry, Meidra is always available near this checkpoint. If you mess up something, just reload the game and try again from the last checkpoint. Meidra has a few questions for the approaching players.
