Cult of the Lamb Cheats and Tips

 

BUILD YOU OWN DIFFICULTY

One of the coolest aspects of Cult of the Lamb is that it’s two games in one — part cult management sim, part hack-and-slash rougelite. Both feed into each other, you can focus on the one you prefer to make your life easier.

For example, if you prefer the cult management part of the game, you can stay home for multiple days at a time, growing your cult and increasing your in-combat power by teaching sermons and gaining XP. Then, the next time you go on a Crusade, you’ll find more powerful weapons waiting for you.

On the flipside, going on more Crusades will give you more resources and followers, speeding up your cult management considerably.

LEAVE FOR CRUSADES IN THE MORNING

Cult of the Lamb has a day-night cycle, and time passes whether you’re at home with your cult or out on a Crusade. Because of this, you want to time your Crusades carefully so you don’t miss an opportunity to preach a Sermon to your followers, which you can only do once per day.

The best idea is to wait for your followers to wake up in the morning, preach a Sermon to them, make sure they’re fed, and then leave on your Crusade. You likely won’t be home until the following evening, but that means you’ll be able to get another Sermon in before your cult goes off to bed.

Missing a Sermon isn’t the end of the world, but it’s a missed opportunity to gain some XP from your followers and keep their Faith in you, their glorious leader, high.

 

 

 

 

 

EXPLORE EVERY MAP

There aren’t any random events that can instantly kill your or halve your health in Cult of the Lamb, so it’s best to explore every nook and cranny while you’re Crusading.

The worst case scenario is that you’ll run into a group of enemies, which shouldn’t be much of a problem. The benefits — like finding more Tarot Cards or rare resources — far outweigh another room filled with critters to kill.

MORE FOLLOWERS EQUALS MORE PROBLEMS (AND RESOURCES)

If you want to proceed through the main story in Cult of the Lamb, you’ll need to steadily increase your follower account — you’ll need a certain number of followers to gain entry to each new area, including the final boss. However, every follower is another mouth to feed.

As you grow your cult, your resource needs grow accordingly. You’ll need to find and cook more food, and your cult will create even more mess. At the same time, you’ll also gain more experience when you preach Sermons, and many hands make light work.

Just be sure that you invest in the infrastructure of your cult according to its needs. If you recruit a bunch of followers at once without building any more beds or increasing your food yield, you’re going to have a lot of angry (or dead!) followers.

VISIT ALL THE AREAS — AND DEVOTION TOTEMS — REGULARLY

As you adventure through Cult of the Lamb, you’ll open up several areas on the map. First you’ll be able to visit Ratau in his cabin, then the beach, and so on. Not only do many of these locations have quests for you to complete and items to purchase, some also have Devotion (XP for your cult) for you to collect.

As you complete more quests, you’ll gain followers outside your cult who will pledge their loyalty to you. This activates a totem in their area that will give your Devotion, just like the one back in your cult compound. Make sure to pop into these areas every few days and collect your Devotion, as the totems don’t have a very high capacity, and fill up rather quickly.
