Remnant 2 Ritualist Class Explained

The Ritualist Archetype provides Remnant 2 players the ability to master true pain and suffering. This class from The Awakened King DLC uses its plethora of status effects to gain an advantage over its foes. I think it's best described as the reverse Alchemist Archetype. Where the latter brings buffs and benefits to allies, the Ritualist brings pain and suffering to its foes.

All Ritualist Perks - Remnant 2 The Awakened King

  • Vile (Prime Perk)(Level 1)
    • This ability makes enemies more susceptible to Status Damage and spreads their status to nearby enemies upon death, creating opportunities for chain reactions.
  • Wrath(Damage Perk)(Level 1)
    • Increases all damage to enemies affected by a Negative Status Effect by 2%, with damage increasing with Ritualist level.
  • Terrify(Team Perk)(Level 2)
    • Killing an entity applies Terrified to all enemies within 5 meters of the killed being for 20 seconds while also making enemies deal 5% less damage.
  • Dark Blood (Utility Perk)(Level 3)
    • Reduces damage received from Negative Status Effects by 25%.
  • Purge (Relic Perk)(Level 4)
    • On Relic Use, it cleanses all Negative Status Effects on the character.

All Ritualist Skills - Remnant 2 The Awakened King

  • Eruption (Damage Perk)(Level 1)
    • Going perfectly together with the prime perk, the Ritualist uses Eruption to detonate nearby enemies and adds insult to injury by dealing bonus damage to those already suffering from Status Effects already applied.
  • Miasma (Level 5)
    • To unleash further damage, bestowing Miasma upon affected enemies immediately applies Bleeding, Burning, Overloaded, and Corroded to all caught within range.
  • Deathwish (Level 10)
    • Like a true tortureer, the Ritualist can use Deathwish to curse themselves. Instead of healing, it causes constant health drain but grants a heavy damage buff and substantial lifesteal.

All Ritualist Traits - Remnant 2 The Awakened King

The Ritualist Archetype receives a unique trait called Affliction, which increases the duration of the Status Effect against enemies by 10% and levels up automatically with the Archetype.
