Rogue Legacy 2 Beginner Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Rogue Legacy 2.

Don't Forget House Rules
Rogue Legacy 2 has an assist feature called 'House Rules' which can make the game easier for new players by allowing you to move a variety of sliders that will enable you to strengthen yourself, weaken enemies, or make certain maneuvers easier to execute. House Rules even has an option to test the mettle of skilled players by making runs harder. Don't be afraid to play about with the House Rules mechanic if you are struggling and getting frustrated, or if you want to challenge yourself.

Buying Castle Upgrades
It is important in Rogue Legacy 2 that you pick the right Castle Upgrades as the majority of heir progression is locked behind them. There are plenty of upgrades available on the Castle Upgrade tree and the ones that you should prioritize getting first are those that saves or earns you more gold. After that focus on anything that lets you deal more damage, these will include upgrades for Strength, Intelligence, Dexterity, and Focus. Upgrades that unlock new classes is a good choice as are upgrades for Vitality which gives you more health.

Learn the Classes
Unlike the original game the classes in Rogue Legacy 2 play differently, this means it is essential that you become familiar with each of them, so you know how to take advantage of their abilities. Each class comes equipped with a different weapon, talent, passive ability, and base stats so be sure to unlock and try them all out in order to find the one that best suits your playstyle.

Gold Farming
Gold farming is extremely important in Rogue Legacy 2 as it enables you to unlock the best Castle Upgrades, equipment, and runes to make future runs easier. Using traits is one of the best ways to farm gold as they give you gold boosts, the downside to this however is that gold boosts are only given by negative traits so you need to choose those where the payout is enough to justify their downside.

Search for Secret Passages
Take a few extra seconds to see if there are any cracks in the walls once you have cleared a room of enemies as this inidcates a secret area. If you come across any cracks hit them with magic to open them up and claim the treasue that is hidden inside.

Break Objects for Rewards
In Rogue Legacy 2 it is not necessary to fight and defeat every enemy you encounter in the hope that you get a gold drop or some food to heal you. An easier way to get those same rewards is by breaking objects. Only fight when you have to, such as when you are trying to complete a Fairy Chest Challenge that requires combat.

Special Dungeons
Keep an eye out for Heirlooms in Rogue Legacy 2 as they enable you to enter a special dungeon when you approach them. Heirlooms look like statues, and they are important for progressions. Like upgrades, they only need to be unlocked once to be available to all characters.

Take a look at our Class Tier List to see who the best characters are in the game.
