The Risk of Rain 2 Skills 2.0 update has brought even more items to help you on your runs. In Risk of Rain 2, you fight waves of enemies as you search for a teleport to jump to the next level. The enemies drop gold, which allows you to open chests and containers and get items that give you buffs, making your stronger. The more items you get, the stronger you become, and the further you get on your runs.
Not all items are available from the get-go, some need to be unlocked with specific actions or achievements in the game, others might be tied to a certain boss fight, or secret. Finding them all can be tricky, but once you do they enter into your general pool, and can show up in standard crates, as long as you have the gold to open them.
Risk of Rain 2 – Focus Crystal Details
The focus Crystal is a standard item that you can find simply by opening chest while you play. It will give you 15% increased damage to enemies within 13 meters. For each stack of the item that you find, it will offer a further 15% increase in damage.
This item isn’t locked away behind a challenge or anything like that; all you need to do is find it in a normal loot chest.
This seems like an item that would be extremely strong on a Survivor like Mercenary and the new Loader, who is constantly trying to stay close to enemies, but as the game goes on it will be strong on just about all the Survivors due to the sheer number, and proximity, of enemies.
