The main weapon is the Chain, it’s a traditional Keeper weapon according to the lore and will always be with the Keeper. Halberd is a different one with a long reach and usually with higher damage output. There’s also one-handed swords with usually higher damage but a shorter reach. The last one is a combination of sword and a shield, offering the player a chance to block some of the incoming attacks.
Ranged Weapons: There are five different ranged weapon sets that the player can use. Four of them are spells(Fire, Storm, Frost, Void) and the other one is a crossbow.
Trinkets With A Twist
How the items work in Rift Keeper: As stated before there are over 120 items in Rift Keeper. They work as they usually do, you find a trinket you equip it and you gain the benefits of that trinket.
However, there’s a catch in Rift Keeper.. while giving player certain bonuses (damage, health or movement speed) most of the items also take something from the player. For example; you might have found a weapon that can crush your foes with devastating damage but on the downside, it can drain and lower your health.
Dungeons & Difficulty
Dungeons: There are 30 handcrafted dungeons, each of them offers unique look and atmosphere and crafted with care. There are also 3 different dungeons for the boss battles.
Dynamic difficulty system: As you progress throughout the game, enemies around you will also get tougher. Their health will increase by 1.25x while their damage output increases much more.
