Posted on October 25, 2021

One of the most challenging and rewarding features in The Battle Cats is Talent. The talent feature automatically becomes available for those new to the game once you clear Into the Future Chapter 3. With that in mind, if you have yet to unlock this feature and you are on your way to clearing Chapter 3, The Ancient Arise: Take Back Earth, then now is the perfect time to get an overview of this feature. Getting an early preview of the talent feature will help you plan and prepare your strategy moving forward. With that out of the way, feel free to check out our The Battle Cats Talents overview for 2021.

What are Talents in The Battle Cats?

The Battle Cats Talent feature went live in 2018 as part of the massive 8.0 update. For the most part, Talents is a bonus feature that allows the player to select True Form cat units. In other words, you need to have a level 30 True Form unit to exploit this feature. As of the moment, 107 cat units can take advantage of this feature. What makes the talent feature important is the enhancement it provides to your maxed-out units. Talent enhancement requires NP (Neko Points or Cat Points) to work. You can acquire this special currency through cat or talent orb exchange in your storage.

Battle Cats Exchange Rate

The current exchange rate allows you to exchange normal and special cats for 1 NP, rare cats for 5 NP, Super Rare for 15 NP, Uber-Rare for 50 NP, and Legend Rare for 150 NP. Using talent orbs for exchange will depend on its grade: Grade D/C = 1 NP, Grade B = 2 NP, Grade A = 7 NP, and Grade S = 25 NP. You can use NP by selecting a True Formed unit in the upgrade menu. There is a minimum of 5 talents per True Formed.

What are the Different Types of Talents in The Battle Cats?

For the most part, Talents are the evolved form of a cat unit’s effect/ability. This means that each effect/ability will eventually develop into a talent. With that said, some effects/abilities are exclusive to talents (see the list below for details).

  • Resist Knockback – Reduces the distance of push Knockback effects
  • Resist Surge – Reduces surge attack damage
  • Warp Resistant – reduces Warp effects (push, pull, distance and duration)
  • Resist Toxic – Reduces Toxic effect damage
  • Resist Weaken – Reduces Weaken effects duration
  • Defense Buff – Increases the health of cat units (effect varies with rarity)
  • Move Speed Up – Increases movement speed of cat units.
  • Resist Curse – Reduces Curse effect duration
  • Attack Buff – Increases the attack power of cat units (effect varies with rarity)
  • Resist Freeze – Reduces Freeze effect duration

There’s still a lot more exchange rate for the game, but the cost of unlocking each talent depends on the rarity of the unit. With that said, the cheapest to unlock is rarely followed by Special, Super-Rare, and Uber-Super Rare as the most expensive.

Cat Units with Talents

Also, Talents are available only for 107 cat units. The 107 cat units comprise 17 Special Cat units, 21 Rare Cat units, 16 Super-Rare Cat units, and 54 Uber-Rare cat units. Check out the list of units below.
