Looking to increase Kena’s health and hopefully get some more in the process? Here’s how you can keep the young Spirit Guide in action longer.

Kena: Bridge of Spirits is finally out and even though the game by Ember Labs is pretty straightforward in most of its gameplay mechanics, there are still a few areas that could be trickier than most for players.

How to Heal Kena

During battles, Kena can take a bit of a beating if you’re not quick enough with that delightful blue bubble shield so staying ahead of the game is a must. Here are a few tips during fight sequences and also where to increase your health permanently.

  • Whenever you are in a boss fight, you’ll notice blue flowers placed around the side. Once you have a full Courage meter from all the yellow orbs left by defeated enemies, send your rot to those by pressing square on the controller and they will fill up your health meter by sending out blue healing to Kena.
  • You’ll also find that by backing away for a few seconds, Kena’s health bar starts to regenerate which is another simple way to heal. Just make sure you aren’t standing still or you’ll liking to get another wallop, bringing your health back down again.
  • Meditation spots found all over the map will allow Kena to rest, a bit like Jin in Ghost of Tsushima. Here you will find that your health bar permanently goes up a notch so the more you find, the greater Kena’s health will become.
