Act 2 or the City is the second of the three default acts of Slay the Spire.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Act 2 starts after the player defeats Act 1 boss. They are also healed to full health at the start of the act, or 75% of their missing HP on Ascension 5 and beyond.

Enemies in this act becomes drastically more difficult than those of Act 1. Monsters in this act either have some gimmick that makes disposing of them much more difficult, or can severely cripples the player. Most monsters also boast high damage output and high health.

Another common components in Act 2's monsters are their multi-hit attacks, and their preference to appear in group. The player has to come prepare with not only strong Area-of Effect cards, but also ways to reduce and repel those pesky attacks as well.

Enemies are usually comprised of one strong monster, a group of moderately strong monsters, or a pair of one strong monsters and one moderately strong monster.

Events exclusive to this act have arguable widest range of risk-versus-reward. Some are straightforward improvement to the player with little to no penalty. Others have great reward while having a huge risk, such as losing a large amount of maximum health, or a battle against powerful foes. There is also a number of events that are affected by Relics the player has.

Card rewards in this act has 25% chance to appear upgraded, reduced to 12.5% on Ascension 12 and beyond.

This act spans from floor 18 to floor 34.
