You accumulate angel dust as you are active in game and level up, it is tracked on the character screen under "Dust Earned" which is transferred to "Angel Dust" whenever you die or reincarnate (either of which also rerolls your traits). After obtaining certain amounts of angel dust you will unlock additional trait slots.
Angel dust is earned in two ways:
- Time in game, either actively playing or sleeping in a bed (but not standing around inactively). This amount is higher initially and declines the longer you have been alive--you stop earning angel dust in this way after approximately four weeks of game time without dying (~700 hours).
- Earning character levels grants an amount of angel dust, significantly moreso the longer you have been alive. Since reincarnating does not reset your time alive and also involves leveling up a lot, it's the go-to method for farming angel dust to unlock additional traits (just avoid dying!).
Dust Earned appears to cap at 30 times your character level.
