Best Traits in Starfield
While each trait has its own benefit in Starfield, a handful stand out and are considered the best. To start, we have Extrovert, which feeds on the mechanic of bringing companions with you on missions and side quests. Extrovert will grant you more oxygen when you have a companion, meaning you can sprint and jump for longer distances, making you more mobile.
Next, we have Hero Worshipped. While having the Adoring Fan around you all the time is annoying, he provides helpful benefits. For example, he has a high Weight Lifting stat, meaning he can hold some gear for you, allowing you to pick more items up during missions, etc. Also, Hero Worshipped helps with the Extrovert trait, considering you’ll always have a companion for missions.
Lastly, Raised Enlightened or Raised Universal is a solid choice. Either choice represents which religion you were raised in, but the benefit is that each religion provides a large chest with many goodies inside. Whether you want to keep the loot inside for yourself or sell all of it to a store, it can go a long way, especially at the beginning of the game.
