Rogue Legacy 2’s Winter Gifts Update is now live. It introduces 14 brand-new relics and adjustments to existing ones. Furthermore, the developers have tweaked Burdens, so those who want a relatively fun and challenging experience will better enjoy the New Game+.

New Relics

Besides new relics, the update also tweaks the ones already in the game. Clotho’s Spindle, Atropos’ Scissors, and Obelisk have their rarity level lowered from rare to common. Moreover, their Resolve cost has been lowered to 25.

Some Relics have also received a redesign. Icarus Wings, for example, now grants flight, but this comes at the cost of you taking bonus damage. Moreover, Incandescent Telescope is changed to Incandescent Telescope’s Bargain. This Relic gives you bonus damage against enemies far from you. However, it reduces the damage you deal to nearer foes.

As mentioned earlier, there are new Relics in Rogue Legacy 2. They are:

  • Raven's Ring
  • Heron's Ring
  • Soul Tether
  • Ivy Roots
  • Corrupting Reagent
  • Lamech's Whetstone
  • Caltrops
  • Voltaic Circlet
  • Marble Statue
  • Demeter's Trial/Reward
  • Arcane Necklace

  • Aite's Sword/Broken Sword
  • Weighted Anklet
