Risk of Rain 2 – Strides of Heresy, And How To Unlock


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.

Strides of Heresy Details, And How To Unlock

You can get the new Strides of Heresy item from a Lunar Plant, but you will need a Lunar Coin to unlock it. You can collect Lunar Coins from killing powerful enemies. It would appear they have an increased chance to drop in this update, although that is based on anecdotal evidence right now.

The Strides of Heresy will replace your Utility Skill with a new skill called Shadowfade. Shadow fade will make you intangible, increase your movement speed by +30%. You will be able to heal for 25% of your maximum health over the full duration of the ability, which is 3 seconds. For each stack of the item you find, it will be an extra 3 seconds added to the duration.

They are amazing on any low mobility Survivor, but keep in mind you are losing out on your standard Utility Ability!
