You don't need them to advance the story. The 30 in each episode gives you the combination to open the episode's safe and get a new technique. I'm on Ep 5 and only opened the first 2. Don't know if the others are useful or not.

You also need to collect 30 clues for the associated trophies.

The clue bottles are my favorite part of the Sly series, why would you want to ignore them!

Personally, I took them all...
but they make you use around 30-60mins more on each level.
I spent 1 hour and 30mins to 3 hours on each level. I image the average would have been 1 and half hour instead of almost 2 and a half, if I hadn't taken all the clue bottles.

On the other side, you get to explore the levels much more! =)
you get the feeling you completed the game.
you learn the extra moves...
It's not really that hard to find them either, except the 5 last ones you always spend a lot of time looking for on each level! xD
Just listen for them though, they make a sound when you are close by one!

I'm with ya, I had fun collecting all the bottles. Added quite a bit of play time to the game.

It's good to know that it's not like the 1st game (where a trophy required 100% of the bottles from 100% of the locations)

Is there a list of the abilities that are unlocked in each level? And more specifically, which ones are really important? If there are only one or two abilities that are worth unlocking, then those would be the level(s) where I go for all 30 bottles.

No you dont need them to complete the story. You might want to try to get them as you play, as the more skills you have, the easier the levels are to complete.

Never opened any, but i am sure the skills will be helpful

Edit: I am past half way and now i want to add a question. If i had to pick one chapter to get the vault, which chapter has the best skill. I got the first 3 vaults, but wondering if i should go after others, since those first 3 were not that useful

I personally collected them all but if you are trying to cut down on time then just collect them all in one episode and don't worry about the rest.
