Tomes are books that can be found in slightly hidden locations in every map. The heroes take these in order to keep them out of the hands of the Pactsworn.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
In Vermintide 2, there are three tomes found in every mission. Tomes are equipped in the healing slot, and thus decrease the amount of healing items the party can actively carry. When a healing item is found, a player may swap the tome for the healing item, then re-equip the tome after the item is consumed. Tomes cannot be given to other players in the same manner as potions or bombs.
If the mission is finished with one or multiple tomes still in possession of the players, each tome will give additional XP depending on the difficulty level, and 50% progress to the next Loot box tier in the Loot screen.
