Becuase the - damage to riposte stacks per enemy hit. So if you spammed it on two enemies twice, your riposte damage would be reduced by 80+%. At lower levels, your riposte would be doing 0 damage because of the higher damage penalty, and not to mention you have to wait until the Riposte effect to wear off for at least 2 turns per use for the damage to normalize again.

Illusionz

Garbage Can Lid

So the debuff only effects riposte damage? Because this with Abyssal Artillery seems like a good combo to whack out the back two unless one of them is much tankier.

massdebater
massdebater

Yes it does. It's a way at least to reduce riposte spam, not to mention that you can only use it twice before having to move forward again (but again, using it more than once just for the riposte is ineffective as it renders your damage to almost nothing).

And yeah, she works well with Occ. My lineup of Occ, Jester, Flag and this class really shines in the Courtyard. Makes dealing with Chevaliers easier with all the bleed and backrow hitting capabilities the team has.

Yes it's just a text file. You only need to edit the class' localization file. The resolve barks should be at the bottom

lvl 4 weapons are shit unless you are an abom

do short cove ones and take a pd if you want they are much safer outside of 4 fishmen ambushes

abuse the fuck out of the crabs and octo tanks to heal up

TechHater
TechHater

a general idea goes like this, some classes are better in some areas like jester is good inside the courtyard missions since you can stay in there for a long time due to his stress healing

Elder God Tier:
Pre Nerf Jester

Good in most parties:
Hellion
Man at Arms
Houndmaster
Graverobber
Flagellant
Occultist
Vestal
Bounty Hunter

There are better options:
Highwayman
Abomination

Stress heal Tier:
Jester

Slow Tier:
Leper
Crusader
Arbalest

Money Tier:
Antiquarian

yes

you need a backup plan in case something goes wrong and you lose a guy for the DD missions

look up the curios, speed is the most important stat since they cant hurt you if they are dead, accuracy is the second most important stat at high levels, the game is long, play on darkest

graverobber

Deadlyinx

Play in Darkest and experiment. I got to the Darkest Dungeon on regular and lost interest in the game for a long while. I felt like I had just grinded my way there. Playing on Blood Moon now, hard as balls but I don't mind restarting and there's real tension with high stakes. Plague doctor is bae.

TurtleCat

no idea. No idea how you're even managing to hit shit considering the Vestal's terrible accuracy.

StrangeWizard
StrangeWizard

Stuns are really good, and camping makes medium-length dungeons safer than short ones. Look up curio interactions and retreat when shit goes bad.

As far as characters go, Antiquarians are beyond amazing and much better than they initially seem. Getting boss kills is extremely satisfying with them, too.

girlDog

Throwing Riposte on vs Swine God probably wasn't the best of ideas.

Does anyone know if exploring rooms adds xp at the end? I'm always wondering if it's worth it walking to that empty room after the quest is done.

No, XP is determined by quest length. Doing extra rooms is still worth it for the possible loot if your party is in decent shape, though.

Stun 2 of them and throw all the remaining bleeds you have on the non-stunned one. Next turn try to chain stun at least one and kill off the wounded one, maybe apply bleed to the next chevalier. 3rd turn if you aren't completely dead focus fire the most wounded one and begin attacking the last chevalier. 4th turn onwards chainstun the last chevalier and start doing damage, healing up the damage before you get enemy reinforcements.

You did bring lots of bleeds, did you?

It was very handy, it told you how much stuff you need to take +the extras for different locations. I believe it wasn't updated for courtyard, maybe even for cove, but it never failed me.

Did I have a very good party comp or is she just very weak? I had a lot of problems on the Viscount but I had enough leftover after her to beat even the Croc at the bottom of the map with extra supplies. Fucking Occultist died to trash mob crit and bleed right after that though.

Vestal doesn't cure mortality debuffs, but her prevent nighttime ambush skill grants a hefty heal and stress heal on heroes with mortality debuffs. There were around 8-9 skivers across the mission and I had to do 2 battles with only 3 characters after the hellion died right near the end.

You can swap the arbalest for something else that shtis on position 3/4, but the vestal/[email protected] are a must-have for easymode croc kills.

Oh that. It seems I forgot to update the left side of the pic.

Her damage at Lv 5 is now 12-17. Hellion's advantage over her is that Iron Swan can keep steady pressure on the backline, especially against bosses since it doesnt have dmg reduction, where as the Onnabushi's backline attack is only good against squishy casters and pushes you backward.

Her hard stats are almost entirely straight-up better than her competitors. And that's not including her
availability at any rank to hit any rank
Hellion-level bleed attacks at any rank but with no debuffs
a GIANT stun% with knockback and prot debuff, straight up better than crusaders
a riposte attack on a heavy hitter that ALSO rapes the back line

Abbo or Arbalest?

BunnyJinx
BunnyJinx

Well, my basis for it is "Can it kill just as much as default heroes?" Everytime I played, my Leper and Bounty Hunter always outpaced it in terms of raw damage, so I had to add a bunch of effects to make it feel different, going as far from changing it from a Heavy designation like Hellion to a Light class like Grave Robber and cutting its Hp drastically.

hard to say without using it and you have to consider the enemies that can spawn at each stage in every area

moon slash is worthless outside of bosses

poem is useless in 90% of cases

her stun cant hit rank 3, but has a damn high stun% and does knock back

she shuffles herself too much to work with some comps

her speed does seem a bit high

i do like her debuffs though, having -speed makes them a real consideration even with herbs unlike the hellion

again a bit hard to tell without using it first, maker can adjust it after more people use it and gather more info

What would you do to buff the abomination?

Crazy_Nice
Crazy_Nice

So what you have is
a portable boss killer move
the Leper buff, but is considered useless compared to the rest of her kit
a stun that is better than the crusaders but can't hit the third rank (same as crusaders anyway)
the ability to fix any shuffle that may happen, and won't actually affect the team if you bounce between 1-2 aside from Abom chains

Oh I should mention, having buffs/debuffs on a Riposte causes them to repeat after every instance of the riposte attack. This means that after the initial attack/debuff, subsequent riposte attacks will further buff her crit and debuff her DMG when riposte. I noticed this playing the Shieldmaiden mod, whose riposte had a +40% damage buff that ended up stacking to ludicrous amounts.

I'm not saying this is definitely how it will play out, but you should test it out first if this isn't how it's supposed to work (though it would give a little bit less value to the attack, which would help balance it a bit)

MPmaster
MPmaster

Does it matter who I give the torches to in the 2nd DD mission? I'm assuming Revelation can just hit all ranks and it's more of a diceroll on whether or not they hit their right target.

Bidwell
Bidwell

That's the idea behind her riposte. It only works well with single targets. The 20% damage reduction is fine against one enemy like a boss, but if you use it twice on the back row, you end up with -80% to riposte damage because the damage reduction stacks on per enemy hit, so using it twice is a bad idea if you want to abuse ripostes.

Poker_Star

You won't have to worry about it if you take MAA or HM and give them a torch, then guard the one without.

SniperWish
SniperWish

No, what I'm saying is
you activate riposte, -20% damage
an enemy hits her and riposte goes off, now at -40% damage
two more enemies hit her and riposte goes off again, now at 80% damage and +10% crit
now it's her turn again

Ignoramus

Is that how riposte works? Last time I check it only applied a debuff every time you casted the skill the applies riposte.

It was supposed to mimic Highwayman's version of Riposte, with 33% damage reduc, but after some turns I ended up with -132% damage and my riposte was dealing zeros, so I had to wait like 3 turns for the riposte to go away.

whereismyname

SniperGod

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

No, the MaA and HWM have their -% riposte damage built into the skill, and not as part of a debuff.
Example - you can't use herbs to remove the debuff and bring MaA and HWM up to a full damage riposte

girlDog
girlDog

I'm not sure if it's only a coding error, but the Onnabushi's -% riposte damage is built into her skill. I pretty much just copied the Highwayman's Riposte and changed the string name and relaxed the damage riduction so that it wouldnt be worthless against two targets.

It's alright if you buff his healing received, that means you don't need to spend one or two turns healing him with another healer because he has a ton of health. But it's lackluster because you could've been dealing damage with him instead so it's only bad if he's your only damage dealer. This isn't a problem in a party with no dedicated healer or that your DPS is decent for you to spend a turn healing him. This applies to his other self-buffs because you spend a extra turn buffing him instead of having him kill one or two enemies that is already 100x better.

What are some skills that are either too terrible or too situational to be worth using most of the time?

Festering vapors, flashpowder, bulwark of faith, breakthrough, grapeshot blast, hound's harry, and illumination (the low base acc really hurts it) are the only skills I've seen that aren't really ever worth using. Honorable mentions are things like solo, caltrops, and pretty much every attack that deals damage to multiple enemies that isn't abyssal artillery because of how weak they are.

Skills like tracking shot and rallying flare probably the most situational skills in the game. Outside of the fight with the swine prince I can't think of any other situation where I would give up another skill for flare.

likme

Flashpowder is actually pretty nifty once you get Auntie's dodge buffs set.

Hound's Harry is pretty situational but it's a godsend for Flesh

Boy_vs_Girl
Boy_vs_Girl

Most self buffs aren't worth it at all, though the ones that last all encounter are occasionally useful. Leper buff sucks, is only occasionally useful to fix his piss-poor accuracy. Highwayman buff lasts all encounter and is thus acceptably decent on bosses. Jester/MAA buffs hit your whole team. Hellion buff heals.

Considering the self damage and stress, it should give a big chunk of damage/crit/acc. If it's only for 3 turns I'd say 50% damage 10% crit and 10 ACC would possibly be worth it.

Alternately, make it heal stress instead of adding it.

It's actually pretty gud if you want bounty to do damage in the back and debuff the enemy's speed. That's only if you need to replace uppercut since you're putting BH at the third row (his most important skills like collect and mark can still work on pos 3).

Other than that, I think these skills are situational or that you would rather want your heroes to spam a certain skill more than the others like attacks or riposte. For example, MaA's skill set is actually pretty solid since all of them has a certain niche that's extremely helpful in what they do (his buffs aren't bad and his basic attack does a decent amount of damage). Of course, consider most of your encounters ends at two or five turns, you want him to use riposte > guard more than the others but that doesn't mean his other skills are shit. Given that you can only use four skills in battle and choose one skill per turn, you're more likely to choose the most important two and the other two are rarely, if not ever used despite their usefulness.

tl;dr Heroes often spam two skills more often than the others given in each battle which leads to a misleading sense of imbalance.

I only partially agree. Some heroes like HW with pointblank/duelist advance/wicked slice/pistol shot have a good amount to choose from so they don't have to spam the same thing.

With GR-Vest-HWY-CRUS you can lunge multiple times by using duelist's advance on your highwayman, and the crusader can either smite or lance depending on turn order. Vestal gets shoved to the back since everyone else is always moving forward.

Is there any point to a "move" themed party?
Some of the most dangerous enemies have a move skill that is a lot worse than a simple stun. Being immune to that bullshit means you score a freebie turn to retaliate because your shuffle party can attack back from a new position. Also, some shuffler skills are either nukes or useful like duelist advance, rampart or lunge.

i've always liked the GR-GR-Healer-MaA memeteam

rampart is pretty undervalued for what it brings to the table (possibly wasting two opponent's turns from the stun+move, especially with the rampart shield, and hits rank 3) and 2 GRs lunging at the start of a fight often means that you remove the enemy rank 3 before they take any actions, so you have plenty of time to shadow fade, rampart and heal up

absolutely

lunge not only has a huge damage %+, but also has a pretty high crit

other lunge skills like duelist's advance and holy lance don't do as much damage, but they make up for it by hitting squishy backliners that you want to prioritize anyway

PackManBrainlure
PackManBrainlure

I used the party to kill Viscount and Countess on my darkest run. It's extremely flexible in terms of what ranks it can hit from where, and does good damage. Crusader can heal stress and vestal heals HP. With lunge + advance you can delete a dangerous rank 3 enemy while turning on riposte.

It does have its weaknesses though. GR and HWY are pretty fragile, and you have no guards. The party also relies entirely on direct damage so it's weak against enemies with high PROT. Crusader, Vestal, and GR have stuns but they're all kind of second tier compared to plague doctor, hellion, or doggoman.

It's amazing against shuffling enemies like the shambler.

Ancestor was a hedonistic asshole who hosted lavish parties at the expense of the hamlet's citizens. One day a seductress turned up at one of his parties and he decided to kill her for sport since he's an asshole, and he felt something dangerous about her. By some stroke of luck he managed to kill her just as she turned into some mosquito vampire, and he decided to serve her blood as wine to the nobles like an asshole. After drinking her blood, he had a vision of the shit buried under the estate and begun digging through it and trying shit like necromancy and demon summoning, meanwhile the rest of the nobles became insectoid vampires.

Turns out he was shit at demon summoning, so he dumped his failed experiments in the warrens. He was better at necromancy and being an asshole, decided to kill and reanimate the necromancers he hired to teach him. Rasputin appeared and started preaching to the populace about the horrors Ancestor was about to unleash, so in a typical asshole fashion, tried to kill him many times but failed, so he decided to show Rasputin the gateway to the darkest dungeon and made him insane. He also had a chubby horticulturist help him with alchemy but he ditched her in the weald when she started experimenting too much on herself. The citizens also started to rebel so he hired brigands to shut them up, but he ran out of money to pay them. As he started running low on funds, he tricked a young girl who had a crush on him to meet him at a pier where he traded her for gems with the fishmen who used her to breed. His smugglers also demanded raises so he repaid them with a cursed anchor that forced them to drown forever. After discovering the truth of the darkest dungeon, he went batshit insane and wrote a letter begging you to fix his mess, then an heroes before pitchforks and torches could get him.
Turns out he was absorbed by the heart of darkness and simply tricked you to lead doomed expeditions to hasten its awakening.

I'm new-ish to the game, bout 10 hours in now and I have every area up to about level 3. I have a basic idea of what classes are good and bad, but there a few I'm not sure about.
Is it worth in vesting in: arbalest, jester, abomination, occultist, crusader? I know crusader is one of the two you start with but I've been mainly using man at arms/flaggelant as my tank damage guys when needed. The occultist's healing seems super inconsistent but I'd like to figure him out as I'm getting kind of sick of having a vestal on every single fucking run. I've run plenty of different party comps but I've never gone on a run without a vestal in rank 4 and I'm getting sick of it.

Characters like the Leper are also hurt by how the biggest threats are almost always in the back and he can only hit the front rows, he is a tank who can't even tank well because he lacks a way to force enemies to attack him, and even if he could make enemies attack him there is a good chance he would soon be overwhelmed by stress and enemies that do nothing but add stress.

Glad you are liking him! He was a bit crazy to make, but super fun at the same time. We have been hoping people will like his really swingy death-courting style and mechanics. His concept has been around since very early days on the project, but the other heroes just made more sense at the time. We really wanted to continue to play up the whole blindly-zealous concept that we gingerly touched on with Crusader and Vestal.

As for his Religion blocking teaming with the Abom, we actually are hoping to do a rework of that system generally and make it quirk-driven. That would fit the mechanics of the game better and allow for evolving heroes.

It's useful for building the lancer backline, where you place 2 crusaders in positions 3-4 or 2-3, with speed altering trinkets/quirks that make one always go before the other, so you can chain holy lances at the enemy backline. I like the spaulders on the slow one, and the crescendo box on the fast one.

You could have them have different names just for flavor. And because of the different class names they could be considered different characters altogether. Basically take the class, don't change it but rename and reskin it. Kinda like an Arbalest/Musketeer deal

Crusader / Valkyrie (Spear instead of sword)
Highwayman / Cat Burglar
Occultist / Witch
Jester / Gypsy
Abomination / Banshee
Houndmaster / Falconeer (That would be cool as shit yo)

Occ is a star player in pos3; he can reach backlines, has good melee range with added bonus dmg and negate dmg as well as mark. And his singletarget heals are unmatched.

Jester is unfortunately just a stress bot these days, you can put him in pos1 and start the fight with a finale but after that it's mostly just Inspiring Tune-spam. I've always found his bleed attacks utterly underwhelming.

Raving_Cute
Raving_Cute

I like Jester. I use him in the third place, so that he can stress heal, mass buff and inflict bleed.
I guess you could use him just by buffing and then using curtine, but I don't like shifting positions like that too much.

The PD keeps everything stunned so you'll basically never see party-wide massive damage.

I'm a little confused about a few things, only been playing for a bit. First, does a stun carry over through rounds? Like if I stun an enemy that has already acted does that stun still take away an action? Same question about marking, confused about how long it lasts.

RavySnake
RavySnake

How the fuck does Stun work in this game? The Bone Courtier has a 10% stun resist and yet out of the three times I've tried to stun one so far in this dungeon with a 100% base it has failed twice and succeeded once. This shit is so bad I'm starting to wonder how the fuck people rely on Stun as a strategy since it's super unreliable.

BlogWobbles
BlogWobbles

Stun lasts until the enemies next action. So if you stun them before they can act in the round then the stun will wear off that round. If you stun them after they acted then it will wear off next round when they act. Obviously they won't do any actions, it will just be the stun wearing out and a 40% stun resist buff.

girlDog

Stun lasts until the enemy is supposed to take an action. Mark ticks down one per action the enemy takes (so usually once per turn, but on enemies that act three times a turn they burn their mark in one of their turns)

Moon slash is already restrictive in terms of what ranks it can hit, much like point-blank shot, and should probably not have any debuff.

Impale is just not good enough to justify the constraints. I think it should only work from rank 3-4, but do better damage and be more accurate.

Death poem is a single target buff, and adds a bleed and stress. It should be the best self buff in the game for those heavy costs.

Backer Heroes are just getting two really good locked quirks off the bat, but you can't change their palette or name. I mean, yeah, you're going to get some optimal quirks, and some nothing negative quirk, but they're going to start out at 0 with unupgraded stuff, and locked skills.

Iirc from the old /dadg/s from last year, light level factor on loot is checked WHEN YOU ENTER a room or corridor; snuffing the lantern mid-corridor just before you interact with the curio doesn't matter since you started the trek with a positive light level.

Dunno how much about that is true or not, though...

Nevermind found the problem! Musketeer (Latest) file is missing an audio file, you can find that file inside the other links(clean dump and independent)
