Love the game's art style and everything it's a lot of fun but it opens your anus wide and fucks you hard

I'm getting mixed signals here. I played the game well before they released any of the new classes and I was pretty good at it. I got some classes to blue level before I stopped.

Now all I hear is that the game is too hard and I don't know because of its new players or the devs actually did make the game harder

So which is it?
>>
>>322105534
Well now you know, this game is kinda bullshit with it's RNG so you have to be prepared for anything, your success will mostly depend on preparation, also don't be afraid to run from combat or dungeons, you still get all the gold but your party gets a bit stressed.
>>
>>322105764
They definitely made it harder
>>
>>322105764
It's still good, problem is the Devs got high on the HARDEST GAME EVAR and started making everything stupidly hard
Also the new class can't party with Sader/Vestal/Leper becouse the backer is a cunt like that

Thought this game was supposed to be hard :^)
>>
>>322105823
Definitely this. It's better to stress out your party a little bit than to lose everything you've invested into them trying to fight through a hopeless situation.

>>322105764
It's a bunch of whiny babies. The game isn't that hard if you aren't an impatient idiot with no planning ability. Sure RNG will fuck you from time to time but the whole point is to stack the odds in your favor.
>>
>>322105764
they added some very BS stuff

once a party member snaps at 100 stress (already very punishing) their stress continues to rise till it reaches 200, at which point, they die from stress

sometimes when an enemy dies, rather than disappearing and moving that annoying enchanter/crossbow fuck to the front, they will leave a corpse, making it impossible for the tank to hit the guys in the back and allowing them to continue using their "back of the group 1 hit kill" moves
>>
The only bad thing about the game is that the roster system needs a grouping system and how it takes forever to get that one class you need and constantly getting 8 arbalests

also, the narrator is pure sex.

Don't let your party get that stressed. Run away if necessary.

>sometimes when an enemy dies, rather than disappearing and moving that annoying enchanter/crossbow fuck to the front, they will leave a corpse, making it impossible for the tank to hit the guys in the back and allowing them to continue using their "back of the group 1 hit kill" moves
Compose your party of people that can hit every enemy position. Include someone that can remove corpses if you are having that big of a problem. Include someone that can displace enemies as well. Pushing a frontline enemy to the back often leaves them useless for a turn or two as well as pushing weaker enemies into the front.

Use your brain.

I know these problems can be dealt with, I just preferred the previous balance, where the game was more about the combat, rather than planning for all eventualites
>>
>>322106340
Git gud at decision making, you fucking idiot. It's literally impossible for your men to die from stress unless you're a moron that pushes them too far. You can retreat from battles AND from missions. It takes far too long to build up to 200 stress for you to attempt to argue that you couldn't do anything about it. Most missions I don't even get one person to 100 stress.

Arbalest seems kind of weak for a lady carrying around a giant crossbow. Suppressing Fire is SOAT against enemy parties with 4 slots though (4 enemies or 1 big guy and 2 smaller guys). Reducing accuracy of 3 enemies at a time is nice.

And Plague Doctor is superior waifu.

This is untrue

When you hit 200 stress it only takes you down to 1 health or death's door (can't remember which)

It's really fucking hard to die in Darkest Dungeon if you don't just fucking ignore the bad effects

Front - Man at arms/Crusader
Second - Man at arms/Crusader
Third - bounty hunter
Fourth - Vestal

Crusader and Man at arms for DPS and they can swap beteween eachother for their +1 position moves. Especially 'sader when he has to stab some one in the back.

Bounty for marks and massive damage since he can hit everyone in third spot

Vestal for judgement, and basic healing.

>>322107167
Occultist, Abomination, Hellion, Jester

Finale to backline for jester
Abomination casts blight turn 1 or transforms immediately
Occultist debuffs or heals
Backline Jester removes stress/buffs plus jumps to front and finales again when the debuffs go

Frontliner is either Hellion for bleeds and stuns or MaA for tanking and stuns. I don't like MaA but Leper has no utility so they're not viable if running a zone with high bleed resist

Logically it works actually

DD takes place in narrow corridors, stepping over corpses would expose you to attacks

I leave corpses on because they actually make the game easier, you can use them to keep enemies in range of classes abilities or to deny enemies their best skills i.e. rend
>>
>>322107167
Depends on the dungeon and who's available at the time, but this is my favorite all-around one:

Front: Man-at-Arms
Second: Bounty Hunter
Third: Vestal/Occultist
Fourth: Houndmaster

Houndmaster's marking ability also does -prot%, which makes Bounty Hunter's 'Collect Bounty' attack hit for truckloads. They also work well together in stacking multiple bleeds on enemies. I give both BH and MaA their stunning knockback abilities so they can disable and displace strong enemies. I also run Vestal with her stun and give her a +stun trinket, since I have her stunning a lot when heals aren't necessary. I'll run Occultist if I'm going into Eldritch-heavy dungeons or if my Vestal is currently out of commission. He does more damage than Vestal but obviously his heals are not all that reliable. And of course my MaA uses Retribution a lot, since it's basically a free attack against anyone with AoE abilities.
>>
>>322107405
>>322106309
Abomination is amazing. It's easy to see that his inability to party with religious characters was balanced around, seeing as he deals tons of damage and has an innate heal. As long as you're decent at stress management then he's a real boon.

I'm in the same boat. Pretty much the only time I lose a character is when they get crit AND have a bleed/blight effect, AND move before my healer's turn, and THEN fail their death's door resistance. I barely ever hit 100 stress too. I don't understand the complaints so I can only attribute it to the need to git gud.
And yeah having enough money is a bitch but that's more a matter of needing to invest extra time by doing low-level runs.

>>322108790
You mean in real life? As far as I know only the English used longbows because they were a weapon that took a lifetime's worth of training. I don't know what civilization invented the crossbow but I do know pretty much everyone started using them because even weak peasants could handle it.
I also know the Chinese invented a rapid-fire crossbow which is fucking badass.

Bought this for a friend during Christmas on sale (and for myself). He loves indie rogue-likes, FTL etc. Nigga can't make it through 2 dungeons. Loses someone every time and restarts. Meanwhile I have my guys at level 3 resolve and really starting to just cruise.

The beginning is possibly the hardest just because you're going to have all of these characters rolling with potentially useless skill combinations and you have no money and no guild.

It's a good time once you have it kind of figured out. .

Are you supposed to do multiple runs in a row with the same party? Guess I should have brought more torches so they aren't all stressed after one.

I think the odds are in your favor to the point where it is pretty much worth it, to the point of probably healing more over a dungeon's length than the vestal.

There must have been some serious rebalancing in the time since I'd played. Because replaying it now I'm getting my nuts stomped on Lv. 3 dungeons even with fully upgraded and skilled guys.

Also diseases are an annoying as fuck addition. I want that shit gone so fast. Same with this fucking streetsign captcha shit.

It's just a rate game. The game isn't strategic. Sure the battles are pitched, but the dungeons are just linear series of fights that you cannot avoid, and the traps are just binary. There's no actual exploration.

Really based on the gameplay, you should just be able to send in a crew and autobattle and just get a report of how they did, the structure of the game would be the same.

Shame because the art is 10/10 perfect but the gameplay is like maybe only a fourth of what I would expect a full game to be.

Why is everyone on /v/ so shit at this game. Yea it's loaded with RNG but don't Fucking lie to me and tell me you can't form a strategy and make the best our of any situation. Team comps, what quirks to keep, who to use, when to use them, what abilities to take, what to level up and shit all that matters in the end. It's all based on strategy, you start of shit and get better as you go. You lose your best guy but you keep going. Seriously hope theres more people here that see that it's not just RNG meme game because I'm tired already of all these negative threads. Just want a good DD thread.

The game is easy and quickly becomes so fucking tedious. You have to manage 20 fuckers because apparently they're still stressed out after that skeleton poured some rotten wine on them and not even finishing an expedition makes them better.

Once you learn how to deal with bullshit, the only thing that makes the game hard is RNG fucking you in the ass when you least expect it.

Being good and exploring dungeons since you didn't get your men killed is discouraged and even penalized with the limited inventory and stress mechanics.

And above all that, it's so fucking tedious god fucking damn.

Depends on the situation. An AoE does more damage overall much of the time, but obviously you're going to have more trouble killing singular enemies. They're good to use if you just need a little damage to push them over the edge into death. Even better if they include some useful effects like debuffs.
Much of the same goes for DoTs; they do more damage overall and bypass protecting but they take time. DoTs have the additional benefit of dealing predictable damage the next time an enemy takes its turn. If the DoT is higher than their remaining health, you can spend your extra turns reducing stress or healing instead of ending combat prematurely.
>>
>>322119294
I don't know what you want out of traps in a game like this, but the dungeons aren't actually linear once you get outside of the early game babby dungeons. There are plenty of times when I get a successful scout check and I outright avoid areas because I'm trying to preserve my party for say, a boss fight, or my party is in bad condition and the goal isn't just "kill everyone in all the rooms." Or I realize that one route involves a wall but I have no shovels, so I take the way around to avoid the stress/damage.

It ain't rocket surgery but there's enough going on to be entertaining on a run, on top of the random chance of running into an eldritch horror or whatever.

Exactly, every turn is precious unless you're steamrolling the enemy. The main advantage I find with DoTs and AoE are that you can avoid wasting a turn overkilling.

If it's the start of the battle, you would probably want to deal focused damage or use some other utility skill. Unless the enemy has such low hp that you know they'll be rekt.

The game has a lot of potential but they have yet to balance the game properly. There has to be a "right" answer. It must be possible for a player to learn the game and know what to do. Everything must be manageable in some way.

RNG should only be there to test the player. I quick "oh shit this is more than expected" but at the same time there must be something the player can do to contain the situation.

They were doing this in the beginning quiet well they added in the abilty to test worl objects with your various items and learn what items work on what objects got you better rewards and removed the threat. Then you learned what objects were in what zones so you knew what to buy and bring.

It was all going so well before the faggot masses started screaming "lol is so hard! needs to be harder!" and they threw it all out the window to pander to retards.

No seriously, heart attack gives you some urgency not to let your stress run away, and corpses are benefitial for your tactic, as it can let you shuffle melee enemies into the backline, which is, you know, great.

Not Religious:
Back - Plague Doctor
Middle Back - Occultist

>>322113643
Vestal is more reliable than Occultist when it comes to healing.

A high level Occultist however can be awesome when paired with an Arbalest and/or Plague Doctor.

I can say that so far of all the characters, the only person that is the least useful is the Jester even if a high level one can greatly reduce stress.

Not to mention the right combination of people in your team are essential for the job.

Certain characters work better together (like Occultist - Arbalest - Bounty Hunter - Hound Master combo).

>>322139248
Don't unless all your dudes are lvl 6, have maxed out equipment and skills and have top-tier trinkets.

The Shambler is literally a close combat monster.

Once went out with a Occultist - Arbalest - Highwayman - Man-At-Arms party and got baited with putting the torch in a Shambler shrine. If it weren't for the first two going virtuous long enough to get a white flag of retreat, then I'd have been toast.

You can get good even if most of the time your enemies get rolls.

The right party composition and placing, along with the right combat/camping skills and equipment can actually make a difference.

And that brings me to the next problem, the grinding. Removing diseases and vices costs a fuckton of it. Those diseases and vices will all be back on the next fight.

So it's a Skinner's Box where the reward is constant dice rolls. That's worse than most MMOs.

Sounds like you're retarded dude. The RNG is 100% stacked against you, but that's the point of the game, to play something that's unforgiving and stacked against you. I'm sure you saw the dev note saying "Warning, we made this game to make you miserable." before the title screen even comes in.
The point, regardless, is that other people are obviously having multiple successful runs in game, even though it's so heavily stacked against them. So, instead of throwing a temper tantrum like a child and blaming the game, how about you read up on how the game works, learn some common strats to help you get through the very hard early-game, and give yourself a fresh start from the start of the game.
If you're dumb enough to use a failing strat over and over and then blame the game, I don't know what to tell you other than "You're a very stupid person,"

I don't really understand why the Abomination give your party stress. I know the backer designed him that way (I think), but why?

If you read that, and then don't expect most parties to drop like flies during dungeons, you're being dumb. Even then, the retreat function is in the game for a reason. You need to learn not to be greedy and save what little ground you've gained when you're entire party is being threatened.

It's a tedious mechanic that just is there to add frustration. You don't truly "lose" anything to make you reflect how you could have done shit differently. You just have to go through the same swath of enemies to pick up all your lost xp, or go into a boss room and try and pick them up before it does one of its one hit kills that is telegraphed out of no where.

Contrary to what some faggots on /v/ would have you believe, this game is pure RNG.

Mind you, it used to be manageable RNG in early alpha. If you did things right you could often be victorious despite bad luck. However, the devs gradually made the game more and more RNG dependent to the point where tactics barely matter.

Devs done fucked up. Pirate one of the older versions if you can, those can be great fun.

Abomination - God only knows how he became what he is or how the rest of his life was prior.

Man-At-Arms - Sole survivor of a annihilated unit. Feels survivors guilt and probably is too old and tired of this shit.

Highwayman - Day as usual. A coach, a shot, a stab, another shot. When he found out that he killed a woman and her child son, this impacted him to the point that he turned into an atoner and death seeker. Hell, the guy you are starting with, Dismas, his name literally means penitent thief.

Most won't start out with shitty quirks you can't deal with. My personal policy is to see how they do after their first mission without supplies, then if they survive, or even better "thrive", then I'll invest. Alternatively, if it's a unit I know I want, I keep them and see how they do with a couple supplied missions. If they fail I can them, if not then it's investment time.

Unfortunately the devs of Dankest Memegeon are in the same autistic mindframe as the developers of The Long War mod for XCOM 2012.

They seem to think that if players discover any sort of meaningful strategy beyond bashing their heads against a fucking wall and praying to the RNG gods, they should modify the game to make it unviable.

It's pure, untarnished autism and the only surprising thing is that people actually paid them for this shit.

>Occultist, Arbalest, Hound Master, Bounty Hunter.

All of them have marks, and(except for the occultist) all of them have abilities that exploit marks. This is great single target DPS, Occultist can heal and debuff, Houndmaster and BH can stun. Lacking a bit in the defense department.

>Highwayman, Highwayman

A bit silly, but even with the addition of corpses you can still do the ol' gatling gun trick. Put two highwaymen in the first two rows, and have the front one use Point Blank Shot. PBS deals massive damage to the front target, but moves the HWM one row back. While this is usually a bad thing, in this setup it just means the HWM in the second row will go to the front row, meaning he can use PBS again. Chain that shit.

I can't really think of many other synergistic setups, but just keep the following in mind:

>Healing is not essential, but very important
Shit is not going to go your way every time. Having a heal is good, but you need to understand that healing may sometimes be a bad idea.
>Stun is extremely valuable
If you can stun an enemy, it's probably better to do it than to heal a character. You'll hardly ever heal for more than an enemy can damage.
>Targeting flexibility
This goes in two ways. Some heroes can attack several different rows from a specific position(Hellion can damage all four rows from row 1) and some heroes can do damage to some row no matter where they are...

Highwayman's very rare buckle is top tier, as is Plague Doctor's vial.

The best trinket is Ancestor's Musketball.
>>
>>322162167
the Highwayman and the Grave Robber are examples of classes that can always attack no matter which row they're sitting in. This is important, especially against certain bosses that can ruin your formation in a second, like the Hag.

Killing enemies is a priority, with stunning being in second place, and healing in third, except for edge cases like an ally bleeding in death's door. When a fight starts, kill as many weak enemies as you can and use a stun to take any big dudes out of the way for the moment.

Debuffs aren't useful most of the times, since fights tend to end pretty fast. Against bosses and Blighted Giants though, it's a good idea to have an occultist cast a weakening curse to severely limit their damage potential.
Several bosses have very small debuff resistance, so you can keep a -80% damage debuff going for the entire fight. This is absolutely invaluable against the Prophet, and the Swine King, which are DPS races.

As for Bleed and Blight, they're marginally useful on normal fights, and insanely useful against bosses, since they're likely to eat the full DoT. A houndmaster can vaporize the Inchoate Flesh, and a Plague Doctor can make short work of the Drowned Crew due to the fact it has low blight resistance, can get high PROT values and takes two moves every turn(meaning DoTs also proc twice every turn).
Oh yeah, bleed and blight ignore PROT values.

>>
>>322164280
just bad luck. There's a ton of classes in the game right now, no surprise you're not getting a specific one.
>>
>>322164374
Alright I'll keep trying. Thanks anon
>>
So I have been enjoying a certain team lineup lately of a Jester, Occultist, and 2 Abominations. It's more for the fact they always do well together and I've just taken a liking to sending them in together.

I'm trying to optimize them, and I don't know what abilities to put on my Occultist. Obviously I destroy the frontline (but I only transform my rank 2 Abomination if I really need damage, otherwise I use him for his meaty stun), so I was wondering if I should even bother running Abyssal Artillery. Sometimes hitting the back is a pain, but I rather like using Sacrificial Blade, Wyrd Reconstruction, Mark, and Tentacle Pull to bring things in the back forward and to clear corpses.

I'm wondering if I should replace Sacrificial Blade with Abyssal Artillery?
>>
>>322163647
You have to mark the GIANT ENEMY CRAB so you can get MASSIVE DAMAGE.

Preferably with Houndmaster.
>>
Got a very rare trinket (+2 speed, +15% damage) off of the very first dungeon enemy. Is this going to be a good run?
>>
>>322162104
Enemies can spawn randomly in hallways, so there is never a 100% safe area.
>>
>>322164567
abyssal artillery has the smallest damage debuff in the game, but it only does real damage against eldritch enemies, meaning it's good in the Cove and in the Weald.

I prefer single target damage nowadays though, so I'd keep Sacrificial Blade.

Don't forget Weakening Curse though, it's pretty good against heavy hitters. If you use the debuff chance + trinkets the Occultist has, you can keep just about anything hitting as hard as a lvl 1 skeleton.

Doesn't scouting let you know if there's a fight/trap/treasure/etc coming up? Or did a new patch change that?

they didn't change that, but you can still find shit in corridors you've already scouted and been through.
>>
>>322165713
It does but additional enemy groups can spawn while walking around.
>>
>>322164873
Wow, Weakening Curse seems pretty powerful. I never use it, I'm usually too busy getting heals for 7 and up, not counting crits, on my Occultist. I get so lucky with him. I'd have loved Weakening Curse in the boss fight I just did with my dream team. I killed the Swine Prince with a crit that was exactly the amount of his remaining health right after he got my Abomination to Death's Door and Wilbur got a hit on him after that, but he resisted the Deathblow and my other Abomination hit Wilbur for the exact remainder of his health as well.

But because I was brought so close to losing him, it was all the more satisfying to win and not lose anyone. Everyone went to the Brothel for a week.

It makes an absolute joke out of several bosses like Swine and Prophet.

>>322166204
I've heard a lot of bad things about the Prophet, but nothing specific. Just something about an eyeball? I don't know anything about him myself, I'm quite excited to see what all the fuss is about.
>>
>>322165969
yeah, I never paid attention to Weakening Curse because I'm used to enemies in games being very resistant to debuffs. But in Darkest Dungeon it's quite the opposite.

The Swine God has 65% debuff resistance, and weakening curse maxed has 140% chance to proc, and there's no growing resistances like in stuns.

Sounds based.

When should I upgrade my adventurers? Should I do it whenever they hit something like 3 or 5? Or just every level? I'm trying to keep a good amount of gold, but I also want to give my team the best chance I can, but not if it's not necessary.
>>
>>
>>322166398
the prophet is being three wooden pews that are a dick to destroy, meaning only classes that can hit the fourth row have a shot at him.

His thing is that he "prophesizes" the death of certain party members, and at the end of the turn rocks fall from the sky and deal shittons of damage. He also has a blight attack to sneak some deathblows in your character.

You can either use a PROT + defend move to tank the damage around(like with a crusader or MAA) or use the occultist to make the rocks feel like pebbles.
>>
>>322107415
I like running Hellion(1), Abomination(2), Jester(3, with the song that moves him to 1 and the finale that pulls him to 4), Occultist(4, since they both have heals and damage)

Right now Abomation is a fucking powerhouse, he hits like a truck in beast form and has great stun/heal in human. Right now he's OP but I'm glad he is kinda balanced with the use of 'no religious classes' on quests with him. Props to the backer who designed the dude.

He's like a better Leper and if one of them has to change, just make it the Leper. It would be lame as hell to make the demonic beast less powerful, so come up with something new and cool the Leper could do, or just buff him because honestly, he's one of my favorite characters. He has a lot of things that appeal to me- masks, disease, executioner sword, religious badass.
