To raise your barbell strap you will need to hunt bright white tail lizards and ingest their tail. These creatures are scattered around the map and to capture them you will need:

Step 2. Capture the crosshairs. With a small animal that is usually agile and hiding in high places the bow and arrow will be your best weapon to shoot down.

With this weapon it will be easier to hit the animal. Reaching the tail of the lizard ensures that it survives without the tail, so you can then collect it. However, since this is a difficult task, do not hesitate to kill it if necessary.

Step 3. To collect the tail, get close to the dead lizard or tail and press the action button (R2 in the modern control pattern).

It is worth remembering that black lizards only regain strength and HP. Those with white tail are the only ones able to increase the level of the blade. Besides the color, the animal also emits a characteristic sound that differs from the others.

To kill them, it is possible to use the sword, but will give a little more work because it is a short range weapon and the bugs will run. Agro can be a great help, since she can run them down and advance the service so you only collect the tails, but for that, the lizards should be on the ground and on the path of the mare.

To achieve a good level of the blade, you will need to collect many tails, since each one offers a small gain. However, with enough effort and willingness to explore a map full of beautiful scenery and mysteries, it will be easy to raise your levels and improve your performance in battles.

If you can not find any other special lizard do not worry, they will reappear over time, so be sure to revisit the places where you first met them.
