Expeditions: Rome Cheats and Tips
KEEP THE V KEY TOGGLED
Our first Expeditions: Rome tip is that you should always toggle the V key which enables a setting that highlights interactive objects and people. The game’s camera sits quite high up – and while you can zoom in and rotate it, it’s still not always clear what objects in the environment can be interacted with.
Many items such as chests and even secrets will blend in, so making sure the V key is toggled at the start of every session will ensure you don’t miss any valuable equipment or encounters.
LOOT AND PICK UP EVERYTHING YOU SEE
Following on from the last tip somewhat, is making sure you pick up absolutely everything in the game. There is no carry weight in Expeditions: Rome, so you can loot every corpse and chest after an encounter.
While you may not equip all of these items, you can salvage most things for extra material, which is vital to crafting. Combining the first two Expeditions: Rome tips will ensure you thoroughly canvass through everything in the game, leaving no stone unturned.
REFER TO THE COMPREHENSIVE CODEX
Expeditions: Rome is a deep strategy game combat-wise, and features lots of deep Roman lore, history, and culture that can appear quite intimidating to understand at first.
Luckily the codex has great breakdowns of many Latin and Roman terms, which also helps to immersive yourself in the role-playing and even play optimally, by for example, knowing how to correctly address a superior to curry more favour. The codex also displays all the game’s status effects, so if you understand the effects of action, you can refer to there.
SPEC INTO THE FLAGBEARER TREE OF THE TRIARIUS CLASS
There are four Expeditions: Rome classes, and they all have three trees that players can spend upgrade points in. One of the best classes and trees by far though, is the Flagbearer tree in the Triarius class, primarily because it houses two of the best abilities in the game.
War Horn is the first one, and it can be acquired instantly – allowing the character to boost all companion and ally damage for multiple turns. The next is at the other end of the tree, and is called Rousing Speech, which can heal all companions and allies in a radius for 25% health. These skills help keep your entire team in a fight for longer and let them tear opponents to pieces with damage.
COMBINE EURYTUS’ BOW WITH THE MARKSMAN SKILL TREE
One of the best weapons in the game is called Eurytus’ Bow and can be found early on in the Temple of Apollon. Use our Expeditions: Rome unique equipment guide to find it, but it can be combined with the Interrupt skill in the Marskman tree for the Sagittarius to great effect, creating one of the most overpowered moves in the game.
This is because the passive trait of Eurytus’ Bow lets the user continue with the ability every time they score a kill, meaning you can potentially kill every enemy in a single encounter with one move.
