Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy Beginner Tips and Tricks

Listed below are several Beginner Tips and Tricks which will help you in Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy.

Explore Temple Jetbeak
After you have reached Haven, talked to the Head Loremaster and finished the prologue you are free to do what you want in the world of Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy. If you plan on following the main quest it is recommended that you travel to Temple Jetbeak in order to uncover hints about the First Valley. It is a long journey to Temple Jetbeak but if you are willing to pay you can talk to the traveling traders that are found near Haven's entrance, and they will take you there safely.

Get the Raaf Key
When you are in the Garden of Yendor during the prologue you do not get the opportunity to explore it as you have to flee from there when you are attacked by the Empire. The Garden of Yendor has two more levels that you were not allowed to explore when you were escaping and if you return there you will be able to find the Raaf Key which will be useful if you set out to explore the Raaf Temples that are scattered across the world.

Search for Sigils
Crafting magic items will help your progression considerably in Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy. In order to craft magical items you will need sigils to power them, and although they can be found in various places their supply is limited. Once you have acquired a sigil you need to bring it to a forge to craft it into any well-made item you may have found. A forge can be found in the vault in Haven, you will frequently come across others when you explore ancient ruins in the world. Keep in mind that Scrying stones, magic hearths, and root singers, are all powered by sigils.

Always be Prepared
Unexplored 2: The Wayfearer's Legacy is about travel and exploration and there are plenty of things to discover in the game, many of which will have an indirect impact on your quest to destroy the Staff of Yendor. Make sure if you plan to go on long journeys that you prepare for them. Travel gear can be just as important, and just as bulky, as heavy armor. Always rest when you are fatigued and forage for food whenever the opportunity presents itself. Talk to the locals you encounter as they will know the lay of the land and can advise you where to cross rivers, mountains, or find good places to rest.

Plan for the Future
Remember that Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy is a challenging rougelike where it is inevitable that at some point your character will die, and it will be a permadeath. Although there is no autosaving you will be able to continue your adventure, but not with the same character. The new character however will be impacted by your choices from previous adventures. Keep in mind that the legacy system of the game will allow you to pass on legacy items to your next character. Take advantage of this by planning for the future, leave items like weapons in safe places to pass down to the next generation. This does mean resisting the temptation to sell your high quality items that are not being used.

Avoid Permadeath
Unexplored 2: The Wayfarer's Legacy has permadeath. This means if your character dies, they can't come back, and you will be forced to create a new character and either return to the same world or begin a fresh run-through. Therefore, you need to adopt a cautious approach to combat. There is no need to fight every enemy you encounter, sometimes it may be more beneficial to hide and sneak past them to avoid a confrontation. Although fighting can gain you loot or give you free rein to collect items in the area it will sometimes be easier to just get past the enemies there in order to get to the next location without taking damage.

Plan your Traveling
In Unexplored 2: Wayfarer's Legacy traveling costs time and journeys can last a long time. You also need to take into consideration that you will need to eat each day and although you will begin the game with some supplies these will eventually run out. If you don't want to stop off at villages you will need to plan your journeys so that you are able to hunt and forage for food.
