Follower Loyalty is an individual stat that determines how much Devotion is generated by the cultist while worshiping at the Shrine or when attending a Sermon. Generate enough Loyalty with a follower and they’ll level up — granting you a Commandment Stone. In other words, you’ll want to invest plenty of time into increasing the Loyalty of every follower in your cult. The more loyal they are, the faster you’ll level up.

Below, you’ll find a few easy ways to quickly raise your follower’s Loyalty in Cult of the Lamb.

Perform a Blessing

Blessings are an easy way to quickly raise Loyalty. They can only be performed once per day per follower, and you’ll need to interact with each follower individually to perform the Blessing. It can be time-consuming once you have a large cult but always remains a viable way to boost your Loyalty. Also note that this can be upgraded to Inspire later in the game for an even greater effect.

Give them gifts

Who doesn’t like gifts? Your cultists might get up to some nefarious stuff, but they still love a good gift. These can be found while out on Crusades, and giving one to a cultist will dramatically raise their Loyalty.

Perform a daily Sermon

If you’re not already performing daily Sermons, make sure to build them into your routine immediately. Not only are these a great way to level up your own skills, but they generate a bunch of Loyalty for your followers.

Hand out Bribes

One of the Doctrines in the Possessions category will allow you to Bribe your followers. This can be performed once a day for each follower (and each use costs a few coins), but it’s another easy way to rapidly improve their Loyalty.

Complete quests

Followers will frequently hand out quests to you when in camp. They may seem silly, but never turn these down as they’re an excellent source of Loyalty.

Cook premium food

Most food doesn’t do much besides fill your cult’s belly. But some high-end meals, like the Splendid Vegetable Feast, have a chance of raising Loyalty after being consumed. Because of this, you might want to invest in a significant farming setup — a single serving of the meal requires tons of beets, pumpkins, and cauliflower.

Rogue Legacy 2: All Heirlooms and how to get them
A knight hiding under a wooden platform.

Gradually improving, whether it be through your own skill or in-game upgrades, is the secret sauce to the best roguelikes. Rogue Legacy 2 takes that addictive concept of investing gold into a massive tree of upgrades introduced in the first one and adds even more ways you can improve your different heirs from run to run. The newest addition are Heirlooms, which not only grant new abilities but also in some cases are required to progress into different areas deeper in the game in a light Metroidvania style. These valuable trinkets are unique items that can only be obtained in specific areas, but apply permanently to all characters and runs going forward without the need to collect them again.

Heirlooms are located in specific puzzle rooms hidden within Rogue Legacy 2. Thankfully you can identify which rooms contain one by looking at the map and spotting the orange candle icon. Once there, you can use a special teleporter to transport you into the puzzle room where, if successful, you will exit with a new ability. Currently, there are seven Heirlooms you will need to collect to complete the set. If you've spent a generation searching the ever-changing layout of Rogue Legacy 2 for these Heirlooms, here's a full guide on how to get them and what they do.

How to increase IVs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl

One on hand, no Pokémon game will ever force you into getting into the deep mechanics of the game in order to have fun and beat the story. Even in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl, you can mostly get by just knowing type advantages. On the other hand, end-game content and competitive players are given tons of depth and mechanics to make their team the absolute best they can be by looking under the hood. Perhaps the most important of these more hardcore systems are called IVs, or Individual Values.

IVs are essentially your Pokémon's stats. Just because you have two Pikachus, for example, doesn't mean they will be identical since they will each have their own IVs that make one potentially better than the other. Trainers who are looking to make the best possible team need to consider IVs in addition to every other factor, such as team composition, for the edge in battle they need to come out on top. It can seem a little intimidating for newcomers, but increasing IVs isn't as complex as it sounds. Here's everything you need to know about how to increase IVs in Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.

Death’s Door: All shrine locations
A crow stands in front of a giant obelisk in Death's Door.

As what is essentially the grim reaper, your little crow is going to be facing a lot of resistance in trying to escort the souls of the dead for the Ministry of Death when you're sent to the land where not even death has power. This world of Death's Door is full of strange and bizarre characters. A few are friendly, but most are looking to make sure you never collect another soul again. Your little crow is a fragile creature, with only a handful of weapons, some magic, and your own skill in dodging and attacking to keep them alive.

Thankfully, Death's Door is a light RPG, which, in this case, means you can improve your base stats to help overcome the intense boss battles that await you. Instead of just getting stronger by earning XP by killing normal foes, you can only improve certain attributes by exploring the world and encountering special Crystal Shrines. There are a total of 16 shrines spread across the world, and they are split into two categories depending on what they do. The more of them you're able to discover, the better chance you'll have at surviving this deathly ordeal. Here are all the shrine locations in Death's Door.
