What Traits Should You Choose in Rogue Legacy 2

One interesting mechanism of this roguelike game is Traits, which are inherited by the descendants of the players. Some of these are more useful than others, so here’s a list of some of the best Traits in the game Rogue Legacy 2.

With the help of this trait, you will be able to see all the chests on the map. This might help you on your journey through the rooms if you’re looking for the best treasures the game has to offer. However, you will be losing HP with this Trait, so make sure to pick someone with a lot of health such as the Barbarian or the Valkyrie.

Compulsive Hoarder

Have you ever thought about wanting to use two Relics at the same time? This trait allows you to do just that. Sometimes, when you can’t pick between two good Relics, you just need to choose them both. The Compulsive Hoarder will let you use both at the same time, while using up the Resolve for just one. Ideally, you should pair this with Hyperion’s Ring which can revive you with 50% health when you die. 


Getting around the map might be tough, since you need to bounce off things like lamps to get to where you want to be, but this trait will make it easier for you. With Clowanthrophy, you can bounce off anything and climb walls, which is very useful as a navigational skill. If you are looking for something specific in the game map and cannot reach it, this trait can help you get it.


This trait allows you to see the complete map of every biome in the game, but there is a downside. While players will get a bird’s eye view of all the rooms on the map, their marker will vanish, and they will not have any idea of what direction they are going towards. You will need to be a skilled cartographer yourself, and note the direction every time you turn. For this, you will need to have a good sense of direction in the game so that you can figure out the exits and get to where you want to go.

IIB Muscle Fibers

With the IIB Muscle Fibers Trait, you will have better muscle power, and be able to jump higher than normal. As the in-game description says, “Reach the jumping prowess of a plumber”, which is a reference to the Mario Brothers who are plumbers in occupation, and you need to jump a lot to get anywhere in the game.
