The Bard is an interesting class to play with. To play effectively with this class, you have to combine multiple attacks and passive at all times and dish out a lot of damage. Hence, Bard has a steep learning curve but is a great pick.

Obviously, the Bard uses a Lute which sends out musical notes. The notes hover in place for 3 seconds, and enemies within range get periodic damage.

The Assassin is one of the top-tier classes in Rogue Legacy 2. Assassin boasts a range of attacks and abilities that makes the enemies look helpless, no matter how strong they are. Assassins have great speed, attack, and mana. Moreover, combining these with other skills makes them one of the best.

Assassin’s Dual Blades attack three times, with the third hit being a Skill Crit. Additionally, the third hit also reduces Talent cooldowns. This goes seamlessly with the Assassin Talent.

Gunslinger uses a Kinetic Revolver that can rapid-fire. The last eight bullets will be critical attacks; hence even normal attack damage output is very high. However, you have to reload your gun manually. You can also hover mid-air while shooting to line your shots better, much like the Ranger.

Gunslinger’s Talent is Makeshift Explosive. This explosive drops multiple dynamites that explode gloriously in an X pattern. The damage scales with Intelligence, and the perfect angle can do double damage. MakeShift Explosive can be used twice before a cooldown of 8 seconds is needed.

Passive: Gunslinger’s Passive is Suave. Sauve lets your weapon deal additional damage equal to 15% of Intelligence. Hence, the best way to play with Gunslinger is to have high Intelligence.

The Boxer lays down multiple punches in a very short time, which also increases attack power with each hit. Boxer uses Boxing Gloves to rapidly punch enemies, which can be done while dashing and jumping. Furthermore, every hit stacks Combo to the player. The combo is a special trait that increases damage output by 2%.

The best part is that Combo can be stacked up to 30 times, and at the 15th hit, all attacks become critical. Hence, The boxer’s standard attack alone is stronger than most classes. Lastly, you can also perform an uppercut by holding UP while attacking.

Boxer’s Talent, Knockout Punch, is an AoE attack of a small radius, but it is capable of destroying projectiles and pushing away enemies. Combining this with its standard attack makes some hard-hitting attacks.

Passive: Deft. Boxer’s Deft lets him pass through enemies that are not attacking.

Boxer Alternate Class: Enkindled Boxers

They start with Enkindled Gauntlets, and these Gauntlets can shoot rocket fists that explode.

12. Ronin

credit: Cellar Door Games

Ronin is one of the strongest classes in the game. Some might say it is the strongest. Thanks to its variation of attacks, Ronin wields a long-range Katana and can also attack at angles that strike through walls and ceilings, but it also has a long attack recovery. During recovery, jump or dash to quickly gain your attacks back. Another downside is that the Katana has a slow mana recovery. So you are better off focusing on melee attacks.

Ronin’s Talent, The Immortal Kotetsu, is very useful and powerful. It is a long-range dash attack that teleports Ronin in a straight line and damages greatly everything in the path. Even though it has a 5-second cooldown, killing with this ability instantly resets Kotetsu. Helping you to rapidly takedown large crowds of foes.

Ronin is a powerful Class, but we advise players to get used to the combat of this game before picking this since it has low health and an average mana capacity.

Passive: Lone Traveler. This Passive skill grants 20% damage to all types of attacks.

Stats:

Max. HPVitality * 6 + 100
Max. MP150
Wpn. DamageStrength * 2

Immortal Kotetsu DamageIntelligence * 2.25

13. Dragon Lancer

The Dragon Lancer is a well-balanced class. It has great attacking capabilities with a good range as well as high defense and shielding abilities. In fact, they also have high health and mana.

They use a Charge Lance, which attacks covering a good length. The secondary attack of the Lance is the Flying Joust. This launches the Lancer forward, dealing area damage when hitting an enemy, therefore can be used to attack multiple enemies at a time. Flying Joust can be steered and canceled with Spin Kicks or double jumps.

Combine this with Dragon Lancer’s Talent: Bastion makes this class literally unstoppable. Bastion summons a shield that blocks projectiles and knocks back enemies—even inflicting small damage.

Passive: Armored. Gains 20% Armor.

Stats:

Max. HPVitality * 10 + 100

The Astromancer is an advanced form of the Mage and a new addition to the game. It has way less health compared to the Mage, but in terms of magic power, Astromancer is the best.

The Astromancer uses the Celestial Sceptre to create black holes that deal damage over time to anyone caught in it. Both the damage and the rate of hits are also very high. Each black hole may hit up to 25 times, depending on where it is cast. Since Astromancer has high mana, you can keep on summoning blackholes and spells.

Astromancer’s talent, Comet Form, allows them to fly, gain increased speed, and damage immunity. You can fly through enemies, damaging them up to 10 times. It has a short duration of about 1.5 seconds. So use it wisely.
