Introduction:
CAPUA! Shall we begin? NO?!

Welcome gladiators, warriors, and achievement hunting faithful to a special edition of Spartacus Legends brought to you by a true undefeated champion and his faithful sidekick dog. Remember your days of dreaming of fighting like Russel Crowe in Gladiator to the death? Ever dream of fame, glory, wine, wealth, and prosperity? Well this game will throw you down into the dirt and will disown you well before you are able to rise to the top echelon of glory and fame. We will need to put in a substantial amount of time, effort, button mashing, and maybe even money to come out on top of this one. 

Spartacus Legends is a free arcade game brought to us by Kung Fu Factory, and represents a new trend of F2P games with micro transactions embedded within. The core of the game, and actually all of it, can easily be completed without even touching the spend Microsoft points section. The majority of the achievements can easily be obtained, but in order to get the full 400, prepare yourself for a long haul grind. 

Controls:
The game handles like many other fighters on the market today. Here is a brief overview of the different buttons, their effects, and how to use them in battle:

  •  - Movement.
  •  - Roll in the direction of the stick.
  •  - Taunt to increase your crowd favor.
  •  - Pankration which is essentially guard break. Use this on an opponent that blocks constantly.
  •  - Grab will allow you to either stop an assault or begin an assault by enabling you to grab and wound your enemy. This is also the button used to block a grab attempt.
  •  - Light attacks are always faster and weaker.
  •  - Strong attacks are slower and more powerful.
  •  - Dodge/Roll are evade techniques. This is crucial if you are either trapped in an assault, or are looking to space between you and your enemy.
  •  - Block of an enemy's attacks.


With the controls down your next step will be to familarize yourself with the different combos. Hit  and go down to Help & Options and then to Command List to find the full list of attacks, dodges, blocks, ect per weapon style.

Tips & Tricks:
There is quite a bit to explain here so bare with me as we try to guide you along. First and foremost the game is as much about lucking out with the AI's difficulty as it is landing the right combo to get the job done. Even in situations where you have the match up you want, you can easily find yourself at the short end of the stick with random difficulty spikes that are beyond belief. With that said let's get into the largest portion of the RoadMap. 

Gladiator Color Ranking System
Gladiators in the game come in six different classes.

  • White is the lowest and only allows for one perk slot.
  • Green is the second lowest and allows for two perk slots.
  • Blue is in the middle and allows for three perk slots.
  • Purple is the third best and allows for four perk slots.
  • Yellow is reserved for legendary gladiators and has everything custom made and set including weapons, armor, and perks.
  • Yellow later on in the game are the best rated gladiators and contain five perk slots for customizing.


Next up is a combo guide that I wanted to thank TheMajinLegend for helping to kick-start. Kindly note these are the best strategies I found, they may not work best for you. 

Dual Daggers
For dual daggers you have a few choices to choose from to maximize killing efficiency and minimize dashboarding rage. Your number one choice for dual daggers is the legend from the second area, Acolytus who is beyond powerful. As far as what it works best against, the dual daggers work best against the shield and spear and the shield and sword opponents, although, dual daggers is by far the most effective spam choice out of all of the styles.

  • Toward Enemy +  is good for closing the distance between you and your opponent and is coupled perfectly with;
  • ++ which is a devistating power combo that once inside an enemy's space, is brutal to get out of.
  • Down on the + is another stellar quick combo that again is hard to get out of.


Dual Swords
Dual swords ranks second as the easiest to not only use, but to defeat enemies with and really only has one combo worth noting that tends to destroy all competition. Dual swords is best used on enemies with a shield (shield and sword, shield and spear), although in a few other occasions, can also be the go-to style. Spartacus is the top-notch gladiator in this particular fighting style and can be earned once you clear the last district and purchase him.

  • Down+ is not only a fairly powerful, but very quick and effective spam combo for dual swords. There is truly no other technique so deadly, or so efficient for the dual swords to note, but as always, checking out the command list will provide you with a full plethora of all the moves the dual swords have to offer.


Spear and Shield
Spear and shield can be tough to work with especially when your opponent either has range on you, or is just so fast you are unable to make a decisive move. We have a few options (not necessarily spam combos per say) that we can take advantage of to make fights in which we must use it easier. Domus Nobilium is your legendary who sports the spear and shield, and in my opinion, for the fights you need to use this combo, is well worth it.

  • Toward+ is a powerful and rather quick (in terms of spear and shield style) combo that does decent damage. The only flaw, and it is a major flaw, is that an enemy that likes to move often will have no trouble getting away from this attack and countering with a flurry of hits. This combo needs to be used intelligently.
  • Up+ coupled with Toward+ is the preferred/go-to style when using the spear and shield. The key here is to begin with the Up+ and if you successfully land a critical hit, or bloody your opponent to quickly use the time that he is staggered to blast him with the Toward+ to inflict massive damage.


Sword and Shield
Sword and shield is another tough style to use, and be proficient with because of its capabilities, and rather weak offensive chances. Unless you are trying to perfect combos and sequences with the sword and shield it's best to try and avoid using this style unless you absolutely must. The problem with the sword and shield for the purpose of quickly ending a battle is the slow rate of attack, and the technique of actually using the shield to defend oneself. The key to succeeding with this style is to know when to attack--plain and simple. There is really only one spam combo you need to remember to use when playing with this style although the second "combo" is a good strategy to utilize:

  • Down+ Just like dual daggers this combo is the most efficient, but unlike dual daggers, it is MUCH slower which requires careful planning and less spamming.
  • Toward+ coupled with Away + when you are inside of an enemy's zone the Toward +  will turn the tide in your favor and when your enemy get's too close the Away +  will put some distance to allow you to go back to the Toward + .


Two-Handed Sword
Two-handed sword can be a very powerful and efficient style, if you are able to not only master some good combos, but are able to successfully dodge if your attacks do not slide in your favor. When using Crixus you can do cataclysmic damage and can definitely get used to the style. Below are a few good combos to keep your eyes on when using this particular style:

  • Toward+ works really well when coupled with well timed rolling and the careful use of backing away when too close to your enemy. Definitely a power tactic that will keep your enemy off of you.
  • Spam  is just one of those classic button smashers that is darn-near unstoppable. I've tried it against numerous styles with Crixus and I rarely get touched when I'm careful with moving to and fro.
  • Toward+ coupled with Up+ works really well as it gets your opponents defense down and allows for a huge not only combo to take place, but intense damage as well. The only flaw to this strategy is getting caught by a speed opponent who does not allow you to get back into your combo. Just be careful, and be ready to roll away to reset yourself.


Two-Handed Hammer
Two-handed hammer is one of those styles you should get used to quickly, preferably early on, and rely on throughout your experiences as it is easily one of the best not only for spamming, but for actual playing as well. We will go over a couple good combos and where/when they can be used efficiently:

  • + This is easily the deadliest combo in the game. The move covers a tremendous amount of ground and does cataclysmic damage. A couple important notes about this though; The move does cover a lot of ground and during the period of air travel can be easily dodged, and counted for a tremendous amount of damage. You need to watch your distance and efficiently roll away if you are not going to land the attack.
  • Holding Away+++ in that order is another very good hammer combo that covers ground, keeps the enemy off guard, and deals incredible damage.
  • Toward+ and Away+ also works really well if you are looking for a little more spammage.


Two-Handed Trident
This may in fact become your most go-to style for getting to 50 fame by far. The two-handed trident is beyond powerful, not necessarily in the damage category, but in range, defense, and ability--its almost unmatched. It's actually been suggested numerous times in numerous places that this may in fact be the best style for not only grinding, but beating the toughest challenges as well, such as Spartacus. We are going to go over a couple great combinations to utilize with the two-handed trident:
An important key to making a good two-handed trident gladiator is not killing his ability to roll while keeping the damage up. You will keep the enemy at bay, make sure you can get away fast enough so he doesn't do a massive combo chain on you.

  • Down+ is the best move to utilize with the two-handed trident. The move does move you closer to your target so careful extractions from your enemy's zone will be necessary. The key to using this combo is to know 3 things: 1) That you need to roll away either if your opponent gets inside your attacks or if you start getting too close for the attack to be efficient, 2) Utilize Toward+ when you stagger or bloody your opponent to come in with the single most powerful trident attack and 3) If you are too close and your character is not made for rolling you can always do Away+ which is another good move to get some distance between yourself and your opponent.

Bottom line is that this will be your go-to style for grinding and beating bosses. Get used to it, embrace it, and let the wins roll in.

Unarmed
Unarmed is obviously the weakest of the styles and can be chosen by taking any gladiator and equipping his weapon. Although this style has the fastest combos, it is again the weakest, and only should be used to gain "Well-Versed in Weaponry." The key to victory with unarmed is to get in close and to keep the combo going for as long as you can, getting out of there if things go south.


Abbreviated Walkthrough:
The game will be tackled in two distinct phases: 1) The main story play through and 2) The grind. 

Climb to the Top (Main Playthrough):
There are 6 districts you must progress through in order to complete 11 out of the 12 achievements. Each one differs slightly as far as combatants, scenarios, perks, and fame/coin rewards. We will be snagging quite a few achievements here so be prepared to get your boots wet with the blood of your enemies and learn the ropes of the game. We will be snagging quite a few achievements here so be prepared to get your boots wet with the blood of your enemies and learn the ropes of the game. 
We start off with a quick tutorial guide in which we are able to dominate our competition with none other than Spartacus himself! After completing the literal step-by-step walkthrough on how to play the game you will unlock "An Educated Lanista."

The first district available is:
Extremus District
Lethality: *
Silver: *
Fame: *


You can grab "Vidi, Vici, Veni" at any time during your duration in the first district. Simply go to the boosts section of editing a gladiator and buy the 500 silver boost for 5 executions. Following that win one battle and execute your opponent. 

Legend Fight
Gladiator: Oenomaus (Sword and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Down+ coupled with careful rolling and dodging will help you beat Oenomaus.
Following this fight you will unlock "Hardened for Battle" for defeating a gladiator above level 100 threat rating, "Legendary Victory" for defeating your first legendary gladiator and "The First of Many Conquests" for conquering your first district.

The second district available is:
Mercatus District
Lethality: **
Silver: **
Fame: **


Legend
Gladiator: Acolytus (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Just like against Fulvius you want to eliminate his speed from the equation rendering him weak. Down+ with the dual daggers is what you should use if you still favor the speed of the style and what you should pride your offense on at this point. Remember to roll and evade if he someone breaks through. 

The third district available is:
Domus Nobilium District
Lethality: ***
Silver: ***
Fame: ***


Legend 
Gladiator: Masonius (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Masonius is 100x more aggressive than Prosperus (the gladiator we just fought before this battle). I used the two-handed sword and Spammed , but I used it very gingerly. I started out spamming it and got caught in combo after combo. The key is to get inside his spear and to unleash. If he distances, re-position and go back in.

The fourth district available is:
Insulae District
Lethality: *****
Silver: *****
Fame: *


The Insulae district is a major location to grab a few achievements. First off we start by grabbing "Beat Strong, Bloody Heart," which is awarded for winning 5 consecutive battles in a row. Not too hard, just make sure to dashboard if you are going to lose. I also suggest grabbing "Rejected by Hell" while you are here. Rejected is awarded for having a gladiator die and reviving him. If it didn't come naturally up to this point you can do it now as this district has the highest lethality rating. Just buy a cheap gladiator and allow him to be killed.

You can also stay here to grab "Without Mercy" which is awarded for 25 slaughters or executions (slaughters are simply kills after the battle without the execution boost). If you decide to move on without grabbing it here, you will most certainly grab it naturally on your way to 50 fame. 

Legend
Gladiator: Ixion (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Dual Daggers
Strategy: This will be a tough battle. I suggest purchasing Acolytus (legendary dual dagger gladiator from the second district) if you have the gold coin to. He will come into the battle with great armor, perks, and weaponry. As far as attack style I rotated a bit. I predominately focused on Down+ but even that was often not enough. He is super fast and will break your combo often leaving you scratching your head trying to regroup. My biggest bit of advise is to roll away often and simply begin the assault again. It'll take longer, but he can wipe your health away with a single combo. 

The fifth district available is:
Oscan Capua District
Lethality: ***
Silver: ***
Fame: ****


Legend
Gladiator: Crixus (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Best thing to do here is to keep Crixus away from you at all costs. Using Ixion from the Insulae District will help to better your chances by providing you with the most powerful two-handed hammer gladiator if you choose that path (which I did). I used a lot of + with a majority of my attacks in the spamming category.

The final district available is:
Spectacula District
Lethality: *****
Silver: ****
Fame: *****


The second you win your first battle in the Spectacula district you will unlock "Opened Gates, Bloodied Sands." Once you have conquered Baal you will snag "The Champion of Capua," which is awarded for defeating all Primus fighters. After you defeat Spartacus you will unlock "Legendary Victory" for defeating all legendary gladiators.

If you've been working along at a good pace and are not too high of a level going into the last district you will unlock your final fighting style, which after buying and winning a match with that gladiator, will net you "Well-Versed in Weaponry."

Final Legend
Gladiator: Spartacus (Dual Swords)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I suggest using the two-handed trident and coupling that with the Down+ strategy. He will run into it more times than you can count making this final battle one of the easiest legend fights.

The Struggle to Become Legend (Grind):

For this you will want to wait for a double fame weekend. You can look up when a double fame weekend is on http://spartacuslegends.com, but be careful because it often is not updated until the event starts. This means that you should check on friday and saturday. They hold 1 double fame event a month. During the event you want to participate in online matches in Spectacula. Your objective in the match is to gain a high crowd rating, not to win. This will earn you approximately 4000 XP. This can be increased to 8000 XP with the fame boost. You will need approximately 10 fame boosts per level that you need to earn.

Completing daily challenges will earn you the gold you need to buy the fame boosts. Each daily challenge offers a reward of fame, however, instead of fame they provide gold at a rate of 1 gold per 1000 fame rewarded. The easiest challenges are winning matches, playing online matches, winning online matches, and killing online opponents. Completing these challenges to 3 stars everyday will allow you to buy 15 fame boosts every other day.

  • Do not waste your gold coins on legendary gladiators, weapons or armor, or boosts aside from double fame. You will get to the point where the best armor, weapons, and characters can be bought with boatloads of silver (of which you will net in the market of 20,000,000 by the time you are finished).
  • The AI has a rubber band quality to it. Sometimes they are extremely easy, and other times you seemingly have to work for your single win. Be persistent and do not lose your focus for long otherwise you may find your gladiator dead.

Conclusion:
Overall the game is your stereotypical fighter, button smasher. The simple fact that the game is free is a huge selling factor especially in today's society where we pay increasing sums of money for everything. Many of the first day/week bugs and glitches have been since fixed and patched leaving us with a game that still leaves much to be desired, but is bearable sparingly. Just understand that in order to get the full 400 you will need to put in close to, and most likely well over 100 hours easily depending on how persistent and efficient you are and more importantly how much real world money you spend on the boost to get double fame. 

The game is fun though and will give you some enjoyment, even if it is up until you begin the grind for 50 fame. If you follow the G&RM you will be in the best position to take Spartacus Legends as far as you desire. Good luck!

Well-Versed in Weaponry20
Won at least 1 match with each fighting style. (13) 

To unlock this achievement, you will need to win a fight with each of the fighting styles avaulable in the game. 

  • Dual Daggers
  • Dual Swords
  • Spear and Shield
  • Sword and Shield
  • Two-Handed Hammer
  • Two-Handed Sword
  • Two-Handed Trident
  • Unarmed For unarmed you need to take any character and go into modify then remove weapon. This does not work on legends.


All of these styles will need to be used except for unarmed, in Primus fights as you progress through the story-line. If you want to get this out of the way though, you can simply buy the character with this type, and go back to the first district to grab a quick win. 

Hardened for Battle20
Defeated an opponent of Threat Rating 100 or higher. (1) 

Beating any of the legends will unlock this achievement, or simply progressing far enough into the game will also present you with the opportunity to defeat an opponent higher than 100 threat rating. If you have trouble snagging this please refer to the RoadMap for specific weapon styles, what they are good against, the combos you should use, and other tips and tricks as well as the require styles for each specific legend.

Beat Strong, Bloody Heart40
Won 5 consecutive fights in Insulae district. (17) 

Insulae district can be found on your world map in the bottom right corner, with a number '6' on it, which indicates that you need to be Fame level 6 to progress to it. The kicker for this district is that every battle ends with an execution so losing even one battle means the life of your gladiator. Luckily there are some little tips we can employ to make it through this.

  • Dual Daggers coupled with the spam combos listed in the RM work wonders down here and tear through the competition. Dual swords also works well with the spam combos.
  • If you are about to lose quickly pause the game and dashboard out. You need to use this method gingerly though as too many dashboards in a row with the same gladiator will result in that particular fighter's deletion. So needless to say just be careful.
  • I suggest not doing the Primus matches unless you are sure of your abilities with particular styles as losing one there will reset your count.
Rejected by Hell20
Revived a dead Gladiator for the first time. (9) 

This will most likely come naturally unless you dashboard often. Revival occurs after any match in which your opponent executed your gladiator, and the first time per gladiator is free. You will be prompted with the menu instructing you that you can either revive your gladiator or move on in which, if you are going for this particular achievement, you want to revive him. 

If you seem unable to lose you can always buy a low level recruit, take him into the Insulae district and allow your opponent to wallop on him.

Important Note: Legends cannot be revived. If you lose a legend in combat you will need to re-buy him with gold.

Vidi, Vici, Veni20
Drove the crowd into a frenzy and won a fight by executing your opponent with a finishing move. (15) 

Finishing moves are unique to the end of a battle. If you end up victorious and you do not deal away all your opponents health before the final blow you will have the opportunity to execute him with a finishing move, so long as you have the boost. Each character is able to buy a 500 silver perk unique to their fighting style that essentially glorifies the final death scene a bit, "driving the crowd into a frenzy." 

In essence all this takes is winning a match with the execution boost purchased and you will grab this achievement naturally.

Without Mercy60
Performed 25 executions or slaughters. (11) 

"Without Mercy" is another one of those achievements that simply put, will come naturally as you begin the long journey to 50 fame. If you aren't interested in hearing about long journeys there are some tips and some words of advise to help you along.

This achievement includes both types of death to finish a match: Execution (which can only be achieved by purchasing the 500 silver coin boost) and Slaughter (of which you will rack up many in your career. As I said before there are two ways you can go about this, quickly actually shooting for the achievement, or allow it to come naturally as you progress.

Your best bet for grabbing this quickly involves spending a few thousand silver coins to purchase the boost which enables you to execute your enemy at the end of a battle. In tangent to purchasing the boost, simply go back to the first district and fight the easiest class of gladiators shooting for the execution every time. It'll be a bit tedious, but this is easily the fastest way to grab this achievement. If you don't mind a little extra wait, you can continue to battle your way through the story-line and as you do so slaughter an opponent every so often, or when you get to the Insulae district, every time. Either way this achievement isn't all that difficult and will come naturally--one way or another. 

Legendary Victory30
Defeated a legendary gladiator. (11) 

Legendary gladiators are the final stop in each district, and by design, are the toughest. If you've watched the TV series some of these names should sound familiar to you, and rightfully so, we must conquer them.

Here is the spread of each District, the Legend's Name, and their fighting style:

  • Extremus District – Oenomaus fights with a Sword and Shield
  • Mercatus District – Alcolytus fights with Dual Daggers
  • Domus Nobilium District – Masonius fights with a Spear and Shield
  • Insulae District – Ixion fights with Two-Handed Hammer
  • Oscan Capua District – Crixus fights with a Two-Handed Sword
  • Spectacula District – Spartacus fights with Dual Swords


For advise on how to conquer these foes refer to "The Champion of Capua."

An Educated Lanista20
Completed the Tutorial fight. 

To unlock this achievement you need to finish the very first fight in the game where you will be in control of Spartacus and need to defeat a hammer wielding gladiator. The game literally walks you through the different controls and has you perform them numerous times before you move on. After learning these controls and defeating the gladiator, the achievement will unlock.

Opened Gates, Bloodied Sands20
Unlocked all arenas and fought in all arenas at least once. (2) 

There are a total of 6 arenas spread across the game with a minimum fame level of 10 required in order to fight in them all. They are as follows:

  • Extremus District Unlocked from the beginning.
  • Mercatus District Unlocked at 3 Fame.
  • Domus Nobilium District Unlocked at 5 Fame.
  • Oscan Capua District Unlocked at 6 Fame.
  • Insulae District Unlocked at 8 Fame.
  • Spectacula District Unlocked at 10 Fame.


Once you fight in all 6, not necessarily win, you will unlock this achievement.

Rich and Famous80
Reached Level 50 Fame. (47) 

Solo Method:
This will absolutely be the most time-consuming, difficult achievement for you to unlock. The difficulty does go away once you perfect an attack style and use it beyond belief, literally becoming a champion of the arena. It's best to stick with the following two fights located in the Spectacula District (a.k.a the last district):

  • Spear & Shield Challenger
  • Mystery Challenger

I recommend using the style you are most comfortable with as these two fights will easily become muscle memory by fame level 50. Personally I use the two-handed trident as it not only has good stopping power, but it has the all-mighty range, which can win any battle for you. Stick to these two battles and see your fame slowly...ever so slowly rise. Note that you can spend 20 gold coins on the perk Fame Boost which doubles fame for the next five battles, but this will drain your coin supply quickly, although there is nothing better to spend your gold on as the best weapons, armor, and characters become available through silver coins eventually. This method will take 3500+ matches to reach fame level 50.

Online Matches Method: (Fastest Method):
Complete daily challenges to collect gold and purchase fame boost with the gold. You will need approximately 10 fame boosts per level that you need to earn. You can earn enough gold for 15 fame boost in about 2 days by completing daily challenges.

Wait for a double fame weekend. You can look up when a double fame weekend is on http://spartacuslegends.com, but be careful because it often is not updated until the event starts. This means that you should check on friday and saturday. They hold 1 double fame event a month. During the event you want to participate in online matches in Spectacula. Your objective in the match is to gain a high crowd rating, not to win. With a fame boost equipped this will earn you approximately 8000XP. Use any white level fighter that you can for this method as unless you win every match you play they will need to be replace regularly.

The First of Many Conquests20
Conquered your first district. 

Conquering your first district can be done in any of the 6 playable areas. In order for you to successfully conquer a district you will need to fight in all the Primus matches as well as defeat the legendary gladiator at the end. Once you defeat the legendary gladiator you will unlock the achievement.

The Champion of Capua50
Defeated all Primus Fights in all districts for the first time. (16) 

Primus fights are a combination of the fights that lead up to the legendary gladiator as well as the legendary gladiator himself. Each district has five Primus fights coupled with the legend to create the basis for this achievement. We will walk through each and every battle and examine what I did that I think you will benefit the most from. Shall we begin?

The first district available is:
Extremus District
Lethality: *
Silver: *
Fame: *


Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Cloelius The Tortoise (Sword and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Toward+ on the dual daggers works really well on getting inside his shield and dealing good damage. 

Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Nervus The Spastic (Dual Swords)
Style Needed: Sword and Shield
Strategy: Down+ is a good equalizer to his fast dual swords. 

Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Albus The Garden Viper (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Dual daggers using Toward+ still works well if this is your first playthrough. 

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Calix Of The Iron Winds (Dual Swords)
Style Needed: Any 
Strategy: Down+ with dual daggers will keep him off balance and will help you easily win. 

Primus Fight Five
Gladiator: Sandulf The Insane (Unarmed)
Style Needed: Dual Daggers
Strategy: Dual daggers will do fairly well against unarmed. Just make sure you do not allow him to break huge combos off on you. If in doubt roll out and restart the combat. 

Legend Fight
Gladiator: Oenomaus (Sword and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Down+ is the single best style for the defensive Oenomaus. He loves to block and roll his combos off of breaking your streak. He is a very defensive based opponent and will force you out of your shell in order to beat him.

The second district available is:
Mercatus District
Fame Required to Enter: 3
Lethality: **
Silver: 
**
Fame: **

Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Gallus The Stubborn (Sword and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Depending on what gladiators you own I would advise using the one you are strongest with. This very well may be the dual daggers character. If that's the case may I suggest Down+ as the dominate combo/spam combo to use on him.

Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Gracilius The Gutter (Dual Daggers) 
Style Needed: Dual Daggers
Strategy: Personally used Toward+ this time around. I needed something that would neutralize his speed. This combo does it easily.

Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Fulvius The Quick (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: This battle can easily be won with Down+ when coupled with making sure he is not allowed to break a large combo on you. If you are in trouble roll away and begin the spam combo again.

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Acteon The Aggressor (Dual Swords)
Style Needed: Dual Swords
Strategy: Down+ is the combo to use here although this time we need to be even more careful of his break away speed and remember to not let him get a combo on us.

Primus Fight Five
Gladiator: Merbal The Anvil (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Merbal is a big time defensive user so you want to use a strategy that will keep the assault on him all the time. I used my speedster with dual daggers and instead of the usual combo, I went with Toward+which neutralized his defense bar and inflicted big damage. 

Legend
Gladiator: Acolytus (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Just like against Fulvius you want to eliminate his speed from the equation rendering him weak. Down+ is what you should use and what you should pride your offense on although if he is evading too much remember Toward+. Remember to roll and evade if he someone breaks through. 

The third district available is:

Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Tiberius Longsword (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: In order to negate his power we need to stay inside and need to stay quick. He loves to dodge and loves to roll so using dual daggers and Toward+ cannot simply be spammed. Well timed combos will allow you to do between 5 and 7 sequences without having to reset yourself.

Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Hamilmax The Smasher (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Sword
Strategy: We are revisiting Spamming . Only thing to note about Hamilmax is that he loves to dodge and to guard break before he strikes.

Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Petrus Bloodtide (Two-Handed Trident)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I simply used Spamming  to counteract his range with the trident. He is defenseless when he cannot even get enough space to attack.

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Velerian Swifthammer (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Sword and Shield
Strategy: I went slightly different for this one. Toward+ Away+ kept him off guard and disabled his big hammer combos. He just defends a lot which will eventually break enabling you to land the big ones.

Primus Fight Five
Gladiator: Prosperus Goldenrod (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I went back to the two-handed sword utilizing the Spamming , reason for it was that he liked to defend often and the hits I delivered negated his defense and got me inside his spear. 

Legend 
Gladiator: Masonius (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Masonius is 100x more aggressive than Prosperus (the gladiator we just fought before this battle). I used the two-handed sword and utilized Spamming , but I used it very gingerly. I started out spamming it and got caught in combo after combo. The key is to get inside his spear and to unleash. If he distances, re-position and go back in.

The fourth district available is:
Insulae District
Fame Required to Enter: 6
Lethality: *****
Silver: *****
Fame: *


Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Otho The Savage (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Hammer
Strategy: I struggled a lot with this battle. He is so quick and takes massive advantage of the time between your last hit in the Toward+ combo and the beginning of the next one. Stay persistent, but get out of there if he breaks through.

Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Iduma Twin-Fang (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Sword
Strategy: At this point you should know what I suggest (Spamming ). It still works, just be careful of his speed. 

Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Ferox The Skull Collector (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Trident
Strategy: Personally I liked Down+ which negated his reach and his power.

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Lothar of The Hills (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Trident
Strategy: I went with Down+ as my dominant move also incorporating Toward+ if I successfully staggered him. You can easily catch him in this combo for the entirety of the match.

Primus Match Five
Gladiator: Ronan The Barbaric (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Using the two-handed sword and the Spam  combo is an effective strategy against another two-handed sword user. I had no problem with him as his defense bar quickly drops after a few hits leaving him defenseless. 

Legend
Gladiator: Ixion (Two-Handed Hammer)
Style Needed: Dual Daggers
Strategy: This will be a tough battle. I suggest purchasing Acolytus (legendary dual dagger gladiator from the second district) if you have the gold coin to. He will come into the battle with great armor, perks, and weaponry. As far as attack style I rotated a bit. I predominately focused on Down+ but even that was often not enough. He is super fast and will break your combo often leaving you scratching your head trying to regroup. My biggest bit of advise is to roll away often and simply begin the assault again. It'll take longer, but he can wipe your health away with a single combo.

The fifth district available is:
Oscan Capua District
Fame Required to Enter: 8
Lethality: ***

Fame: ****


Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Wilhelm The Proud (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Sword

Strategy: For some reason I struggled with this. I utilized Toward+ and Away+ as my primary attack style, and then used + when I put some distance between us. I know not the styles listed in the RoadMap, but I found these ones working best for me.

Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Seighart The Heartless (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: From the get-go you are are a power disadvantage and his ability to land one massive combo is almost unmatched as far as I've seen. Down+ for the dual daggers was the only combo I could actually get on him, although he was often able to evade and smack me after I missed the entire spam. It's a very frustrating battle, just be patient and wait for your opportunity to dive into him. If you're in a position to use a different style, then go for it, hopefully you're able to conquer this guy. 


Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Tacitus The Silent (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Hammer
Strategy: Another fairly tough fight you need to be on the top of your game when combating this power-defender. I went with the + strategy and used it throughout the entire battle although doing this really slowed it down as I danced around for the majority of the fight. 

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Priscus Five Fangs (Two-Handed Trident)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: A fairly easy battle as I used the two-handed trident and simply spammed  technique. Remember to keep him at bay, and not to allow him to break a combo on you. 

Primus Fight Five
Gladiator: Vitals The Leech (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Trident
Strategy: I relied on my farming strategy Down+ to be the work-horse in conquering him. Honestly wasn't too bad, just remember to keep him back. 

Legend
Gladiator: Crixus (Two-Handed Sword)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: Best thing to do here is to keep Crixus away from you at all costs. Using Ixion from the Insulae District will help to better your chances by providing you with the most powerful two-handed hammer gladiator if you choose that path (which I did). I used a lot of + and even did a few segments of .

The final district available is:
Spectacula District
Fame Required to Enter: 10
Lethality: *****
Silver: ****

Fame: *****

Primus Fight One
Gladiator: Hrowulf The Impenetrable (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I went with Toward+ and Away+ when using the hammer character. I just felt as though I wanted something that provided a bit more speed as he liked to defend. Overall it's a fairly easy match as he likes to defend often and is easily broken down.


Primus Fight Two
Gladiator: Remus Wolf Child (Dual Daggers)
Style Needed: Spear and Shield
Strategy: Down+ all the way to the bank. Just put distance between the two of you when you get too close. He actually wasn't as bad as I thought it would be since this style is my weakest. 

Primus Fight Three
Gladiator: Hannibal The Cannibal (Two-Handed Trident)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I actually spammed Down+ for the entire fight using two-handed trident. Liked the way it kept me close against his long ranged trident. I know it sounds crazy but the AI loves to long range when they use the trident, so I like to close range them when I use the same weapon. Two-handed sword would have also worked really well here as well spamming .

Primus Fight Four
Gladiator: Serverus The Hunter (Spear and Shield)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Trident
Strategy: I relied 100% on Spamming  to beat this aggressive fighter. Unlike the last guy, try to keep him off of the offensive so he cannot one-combo your life away as for some odd reason spear and shield gladiators have this uncanny ability to drop a huge spinning combo. 

Primus Fight Five
Gladiator: Baal (Two-Handed Trident)
Style Needed: Two-Handed Hammer
Strategy: + works wonders on Baal. You take away his advantage of the distance and deal amazing damage. Just remember to roll back and repeat to ensure he cannot get to you. 

Final Legend
Gladiator: Spartacus (Dual Swords)
Style Needed: Any
Strategy: I suggest using the two-handed trident and coupling that with the Down+ strategy. He will run into it more times than you can count making this final battle one of the easiest legend fights.
