Rogue Legacy 2 is finally out, and we know a lot of fans can’t wait to jump right in! Getting started can be quite daunting for newbies, so here are a few tips and tricks to help amateur adventurers get into the flow.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
Get Rich or Die Trying – Manor Gold Upgrades: Rogue Legacy 2 is quite a difficult game, and the beginning can be overwhelming for some players. Your Manor has a ton of upgrades to help you overcome these challenges, but there’s a lot to dig through, so here are a few skills we recommend new players try. The very first upgrade in the mansion grants gold bonuses to the traits you choose, but it doesn’t stop there. Skills like the Repurposed Mining Shaft increase Trait Gold bonuses, while Offshore Banking allows players to slowly accumulate gold until they can afford more expensive things. They may seem expensive, but buying them early will give you a quick advantage.
Mastery XP OP – the Wise Totem: Buying stat upgrades in your mansion isn’t the only way to make your character stronger. Unlocking the Sage Totem grants you access to Mastery XP, which makes each hero class naturally stronger the more you play them. In fact, these strengths are permanent and are carried over between classes. Players who buy the Sage Totem and diversify the classes they play can get quick and easy bonuses that will really help in the beginning.
I gotta catch ’em all † Heirlooms: We don’t want to give too much away, but if you’re roaming around the Kingdom, you’ll want to be on the lookout for Heirlooms. They may seem ominous and daunting at first, but remember that luck favors the bold! You may not succeed in their challenges the first time around, but for the persistent and ultimately victorious, you will get the biggest rewards the game has to offer.
Show me your moves – spells and talents: Don’t build bad habits! Try to use every skill you have, even when there are no enemies around, to help you understand your character’s strengths. Yes, your weapon is strong, but each hero class also has a unique talent along with a random spell, and using it is the key to success. Mana abounds in RL2, so don’t be afraid to experiment!
Another Level to Combat – Skill Criteria: Once you get used to using all your skills, you can take things to the next level with Skill Critical Strikes, also known as Skill Crits. Every weapon and spell in the game has a way of dealing extra damage, such as running during an attack or hitting enemies at the peak of your blade attack. Not only are these skill criteria extremely satisfying, but they get stronger as you become more skilled. By learning the nuances, you can be sure that you can take down the most powerful enemies in a short time.
Master Mobility – Spin Kicks: There’s a reason we have you Spin Kick so many times in the tutorial. In Rogue Legacy 2, the Spin Kick is life. Mastering it adds another degree to both your platforming and combat repertoire. In fact, it’s so versatile that you can beat the entire game with that one move alone. It’s not recommended, but it’s possible (yes, someone did it).
Practice makes perfect † The architect: We’ve put a lot of effort into making sure every boss in Rogue Legacy 2 can be defeated without taking a hit. It takes a lot of practice, but luckily there is an easy way to keep trying until you get that good. Once purchased in the mansion, the architect gives you the option to seal off the kingdom and prevent it from changing. If you’ve already found the boss room, a closed kingdom means you can fight the boss again and again, as they are only a teleporter away.
Pro Tip: Spend a few Heirs dodging the boss’s attacks and see how long you can last. Focusing purely on defense and not worrying about attacking makes it easier to learn the boss’ attack patterns and timing. Once they’re all sorted out, you can bring the fight to them.
Play Your Way – House Rules: Even after following all these tips, Rogue Legacy 2 still has a steep learning curve and you can still struggle. Or maybe you don’t want to invest that much time, but just relax on the couch and chill. Everyone is different and with House Rules you can customize the experience to your liking. Increase or decrease the difficulty, enable contact damage, and even slow down time as you strive to run the game at your pace.
Play the way you want, and don’t worry, there’s no penalty for using the house rules.
That covers roughly the basics to get you started. Before you even touch the controller, remember that: Rogue Legacy 2 goes beyond just quick hands and quick reflexes. Equipping yourself with the right knowledge and the will to persevere is just as powerful. This guide is just the tip of the iceberg, so make sure you keep learning new things as you play the game. There is much more to search, discover and above all enjoy. Thanks for reading and we hope you enjoy it Rogue Legacy 2†

Rogue Legacy is back! But now there is a 2 on the end! Rogue Legacy 2 is a genealogy rogue-LITE. That means it has all the hallmarks of a typical rogue-like (random runs, changing characters, and more), but with lingering upgrades and lingering dead heirs. In this game, your legacy defines you. Spend your parents’ inheritance and grow the family home to give your children a better fighting chance. Each child is unique, with its own characteristics and capabilities. Your daughter could be a Ranger. She could also be vegan. It’s a new experience every time. Rogue Legacy 2 also lets you play however you want. Go hard and fast and dive deeper into the depths of a randomly generated world. Or take it easy and build up your character until you’re ready for bigger challenges.
