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

By Guest Writer on November 09, 2006

Gods & Heroes: The Soldier 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.


Soldiers embody the very spirit of Rome and are the Republic's most steadfast protectors. Renowned for their courage and prowess in battle as well as their mastery of a variety of deadly weaponry, Soldiers are the most formidable warriors Rome has at her service. Their role in the world of Gods & Heroes: Rome Rising is much more strategic and tactical than the typical warrior class character, however. Their rigorous discipline makes them capable of holding their ground against massive assaults by the barbarian hordes looking to overrun Rome's borders, meaning they are as skilled at defense as they are at offense. Additionally, their bravery and loyalty in defending Rome runs so deep that it is often inspiring to other Romans who are taking up arms against the enemies of the Republic.

Soldiers' offensive capabilities are truly overwhelming in their breadth and lethality. The "Triarius Strike" is the basic attack move that Soldiers can perform to inflict extra damage on their enemies. When you're hoping to inflict massive damage, however, the "Soldier Combo" is what you need to queue up--the animation alone is worth it. "Charge" allows your Soldier to move rapidly into battle, while "Knockdown" sends your opponent sprawling in the dirt. "Nerve Strike" is another particularly devastating attack that Soldiers can learn fairly early; it reduces an enemy's combat abilities for a short time, in addition to inflicting initial damage. Soldiers who have reached level 20 can perform "Silencing Strike," an assault move that, in addition to being quite powerful, also has the ability to disrupt spellcasting. "Plumbatae," which is part of the "Shields" feat tree, allows Soldiers to throw several small projectiles at their adversary. "Armor Breaking" is part of the "2-Handed Weapons" feat tree and is such a powerful attack that it reduces your opponent's armor rating.

As mentioned, Soldiers are capable of withstanding assaults that would devastate any other warrior. "Clipeatus Defense" is the basic defensive buff Soldiers can learn to give them increased ability in using a shield to block their opponents' attacks. When battling ranged combatants, "Shot Defense" is an invaluable feat, as it increases your chances of parrying incoming missiles. "Focused Blocking," part of the "Shields" feat tree, gives your Soldier an even more significant chance of blocking an imminent attack. "Focused Parrying," on the other hand, part of the "2-Handed Weapons" feat tree, enhances your ability to block imminent attacks when you're not using a shield. "Iron Will" makes your Soldier impervious to all movement-impairing spells that might be cast against you, while "Cage of Steel" grants you a buff that increases your chance of parrying attacks from all directions rather than just those coming straight at you.

The strategic value of Soldiers cannot be overstated. "Challenge," for instance, allows your Soldier to taunt the enemies of Rome and force their hand, luring them into a battle on the terrain of your choosing. The true tactical value of playing a Soldier, however, might be in the ability Soldiers have to inspire their troops to greater heights in both attacking and defending. When the barbarians are charging your position, "Shield Bang" causes your infantry unit to hold their ground and bang loudly on their shields, slowing down the enemy's advance. "Battle Cry" can then be used to give you and all your allies a temporary increase in accuracy and attack stats. When you decide to go on the offensive and need to break through enemy lines, "Shock Charge" sends your entire squad careening through the battle formation of your adversaries.

Rome is the pinnacle of civilization; hence Roman Soldiers are consummate warriors. Far more than just trained swordsman, Soldiers are skilled in all aspects of warfare--from bloody melee combat to strategy and defense. More importantly, their devotion to the Republican cause is unparalleled, making them a smart choice for anyone hoping to be victorious in leading their squad into battles for glory.
