Wondering how you get clay pots in A Plague Tale: Requiem? The answer is surprisingly simple.
In A Plague Tale: Requiem, pots allow you to do a number of things, including distracting enemies and clearing areas of rats. If you’re scratching your head at the latter, don’t worry: you won’t use pots for that purpose until chapter two.
The advantage to regular pots, the ones you haven’t crafted to deliver a flaming blast, is that they create a distraction anywhere. You don’t need to hunt for a metal or stone-filled cart, just throw them and if someone’s in earshot, they will investigate.
So how do you get them? The simple answer is, keep your eyes open. Typically, you’ll find them on tables, by carts, rather than sitting in the middle of nowhere on their own. When the game is teaching you to make fire pots they’ll be in plain sight, but that’s not always the case.
Why? Because the thing to understand about A Plague Tale: Requiem is that it’s more open than A Plague Tale: Innocence. With Innocence, your route through each level was generally linear or, if you had a bit of freedom, the area you could explore would be quiet small.
So, pots would be really hard to miss. In Requiem, however, you have multiple ways to tackle each area and the areas are generally bigger. So there could be a pot in a corner that you never go near.
So, to get clay pots you just need to keep your eyes out and explore each level though be aware that doing so with guards around may put you in more danger.
