Rogue Legacy 2 Trait Guide
Want to know the meaning of all the new Traits added to the game? This Rogue Legacy 2 Trait Guide lists every possible trait we have discovered on our adventures through the game, including the effect of each trait. Every character that is generated in Rogue Legacy 2 has a potential to be created with zero, one, or two Traits, so they are a very important part of the game. Let’s get into the Trait system.

What Are Traits

What Are Traits In Rogue Legacy 2
Traits are character traits assigned to each of the characters created in the game. There is a huge variety of different traits, each offering different potential challenges and bonuses to your run in Rogue Legacy 2. Traits now also give a boost to gold, which is both good and bad. Typically, the bigger boosts to gold (as high as 150%) are placed on Traits that make a run incredibly difficult. These can do everything from limiting your vision, to killing you in a single blow.

Whether or not you choose the character with those dangerously rewarding Traits or not is down to you, but it’s an interesting risk vs. reward system.

How To Unlock More Traits

How To Unlock More Traits In Rogue Legacy 2
Currently Rogue Legacy 2 is in its earliest stage of Early Access. This means there’s a lot more mechanics to come. At the moment, Traits only appear to be unlocked during the character selection stage. When you start a fresh run you can choose from three new characters. Sir Kenny here is a Knight that has the Pacifist Trait. To learn the effects of the Trait you must select a character with a ???? Trait.

Then, once you start the game, you can check the Trait on the pause menu. The Trait also lists the additional bonus gold, +90% in the case of the Pacifist.
