Gods and Heroes: Rome Rising Dev Journals: Scout Feat Tree

By Guest Writer on July 14, 2006

Gods & Heroes: The Scout Feat Tree - Levels 1 to 20

Editor's Note: The following is a tenative list of feats available to the scout class in Gods & Heroes as provided and written by Perpetual Entertainment.


The Scout is one of the most versatile and intriguing character classes in Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising™. They are also one of the more enigmatic, being that they are more at home sleeping under the stars and living amongst the animals in the wilderness than they are dwelling in the relative luxury and comfort of Rome. They have a wide variety of talents; in addition to utilizing a bow and arrow to devastating effect, they are also masters of woodland lore, stealth, and trap-making. As evidenced by their Feat Tree, the Scout will be a vital part of any group of heroes seeking glory in defending the honor of Rome.

Feats like “Aimed Shot” and “Piercing Shot” make even a lower-level Scout a ranged-combatant to be dealt with. As they grow in experience, Feats like “Rapid Fire,” “Auxiliarius' Target,” and “Searing Shot” make their attacks even more overwhelming. While delivering massive amounts of damage from long-range is their specialty, Scouts can perform other Feats while in battle that increase their lethality, such as “Crippling Shot,” which slows down their enemies, further reducing the opportunities those enemies have to inflict damage on the swift and elusive Scout. They are also endowed with a variety of Feats that boost the combat prowess or defenses of the other members of their party, such as “Fire Volley,” “Targeting Aura,” and “Scatter.” Taken together, these Feats will make the Scout a most-welcome addition to any band of campaigning heroes.

But the Scout’s abilities do not stop there, nor do the benefits to any party lucky enough to include a Scout amongst their ranks. As adept outdoorsmen, Scouts can perform Feats like “Forage” and “Dowse” that allow them to find food and drink in the wilderness, so there are less trips back to town for provisions to regenerate the health and energy of themselves and the other members of the party. “Soothe Beast” and “Beast Slaying” minimize the threat posed by wild animals. It is even rumored that truly advanced Scouts possess the ability to summon wild animals to fight for them. Rare abilities such as these have contributed greatly to the Scout’s reputation as a mystifying opponent and reliable ally.

As a long range fighter, the best way to defeat a Scout is by hedging them in and forcing them to fight up-close and dirty. But even then the Scout has recourse, as “Antesignanus Defense” and “Break Away” help them to dodge their enemies’ blows and even escape altogether. But the real trick is in actually managing to locate and corner a Scout before he unleashes a deadly barrage of arrows, which is made all the more difficult thanks to Feats like “Hide,” which allows lower-level Scouts to enter stealth mode while in combat, and “Snipe,” which allows higher-level Scouts to attack even when they’re stealthed. Many of their enemies often have precious little time to react to the threat posed by the Scout, as utilizing the element of surprise is typically one of the Scout’s favorite tactics. In fact, those enemies that fall victim to the Scout’s “Snare” typically don’t even get the chance to curse under their breath before the Scout’s arrow splits their skull.

While not the strongest, nor the most magically potent, of the classes, the Scout is equipped with far more than what it takes to survive. Ever elusive, Scouts are the most mysterious, as well as the most resourceful, of all the character classes. Indeed, Scouts are, for very good reason, considered to be some of the most dangerous characters in the Roman world. As an aspiring hero, you should pray to your god that you do not see them fighting for the other side – or better yet, pray to your god that you do see them, perhaps even with enough time to defend yourself.
