Unlocking Shades in Mortal Shell is fairly straightforward. What you will need before you start is food items, specifically Roasted Rat or Rotten Food. You will need to have at least 60x of the food items (Roasted Rat is easiest to acquire) to give to Gorf to unlock all the Shades currently available. To unlock the Shades follow these steps:

  1. Give Gorf 5x of Roasted Rat.
  2. Play your Lute.
  3. Receive first Shade.
  4. Give Gorf 10x Roasted Rat.
  5. Play Your Lute.
  6. Receive Second Shade.
  7. Switch Shells and repeat process.

This process is fairly straightforward but does require having the food items available to complete. For the Roasted Rat you can purchase enough from the vendor in the Fallgrim Tower which is fairly easy. The full list of skins you can unlock currently are listed below.

  • None.
  • Super Meat Boi.

Once you’ve unlocked a Shade you can equip or unequip it using the Shell menu. On this screen there is a new Shade tab next to the Shell’s ability tab. Here you can equip or unequip Shades on your Shells.

    The Foundling gold skin is called “Aurum Ascendant.” You can change the Shade of the Foundling only by speaking to Sester Gennefer without a shell
