While playing Rogue Legacy 2, everyone makes seven mistakes ...

After nearly two years in early access, Rogue Legacy 2 was quickly released on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC. It has been well-received by fans and critics, as exemplified by its 90 critic score and 8.3 user score on Metacritic.

The game''s wholesome cartoon graphics will make players star at the death screen more than they would like to admit. Here are some common mistakes to avoid if you are avoiding Rogue Legacy 2.

7 Retreating After Being Hit

Many players will retreat when they are landed in Rogue Legacy 2. This may seem like an obvious thing to do, but this strategy prevents players from getting a few free attacks in.

Rogue Legacy 2 allows players to use a few I-frames after being struck, allowing them to recover. Instead of stepping back, players should view the I-frames as a counter-attacking opportunity and begin attacking immediately following the attack.

6 Not Having A Plan At The Start Of Each Run

A common mistake that new players make in non-Rogue Legacy 2 but the entire roguelike genre is attempting to complete the entire game on every run. This strategy isn''t going to garner much success.

Instead, players should take a moment before each run to determin what small, achievable goal they want to achieve in their upcoming run, and form a strategy for it. Once a strategy has been decided on, such as getting as much gold as possible for castle upgrades, they should concentrate on everything they do in the run toward reaching the target.

5 Always Playing the Same Way, Regardless Of Class And Traits

Following on from the previous point, many players will often fall into the trap of sticking to one playstyle regardless of their class. This is a major error in Rogue Legacy 2, as players only have three classes to choose from for each run, thus they won''t be able to select the same class every time.

Although it may be tedious, players should make an effort to learn the ins and outs of every class and how to maximize their unique abilities.

4 Trying To Kill Everything

It''s likely that enemies will drop money or health insurance policies, but there are times when players will enter a space filled with enemies and projectiles flying all over the place, and they must swallow their pride and follow them very quickly and as painlessly as possible.

Players should take the time to kill enemies they are confident they can beat without much trouble, but if they keep trying to fight their way out of trouble, they''ll struggle to make any significant advancement in the game.

3 Rushing Purchases

Sometimes, playing in Rogue Legacy 2 can be infuriating. Not only are players kicked back to the beginning again, but they also lose their character, who might have liked it.

Consequently, players are mistaken for being discouraged after death. They will rush their castle upgrades and shop purchases, as they simply desire to dive straight back into the action and take revenge virtually. It should go without saying how problematic this attitude may be, as upgrades and purchases are crucial to making progress in Rogue Legacy 2.

2 Getting Frustrated At A Lack Of Progress

Frustration about a lack of progress and the roguelike genre go hand in hand. The genre is designed in such a way that players will sometimes encounter themselves in a woes and are seemingly incapable of making any real progress.

It''s important to be patient and keep keeping pace with situations like these. Rogue Legacy 2 gives players lots of upgrades to help them keep making progress, thus players should spend their next handful of runs focusing specifically on collecting gold and purchasing helpful upgrades.

1 Not Smashing Breakable Items At Every Opportunity

Despite this, many players refuse to break such items, as they become cautious and prefer to move on to the next screen to see what happens in wait.

While individual breakables don''t often provide much, players should still take the time to recover when they are safe from enemies, as the reward at any given time may only be minimal, but it will add up over the course of a run and be worth it in the end.

Rogue Legacy 2 is now available on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and PC.
