Remnant: From the Ashes traits are passive abilities that can be leveled up 20 times before maxing out. They will each provide a unique bonus to your character, helping you progress through more difficult dungeons.
Once you unlock a trait, it is forever available on that character through the Trait menu (T) in game. Your trait level signifies your overall level, and it just a total of all trait points added up.
Killing monsters and completing dungeons will grant your experience points to level up your traits. Items like Tome of Knowledge can also be found, which grant 1 Trait point each time you find one. To level up quicker, use items like Sage Ring and Elder Knowledge trait to increase the amount of experience you gain.
