Once the game is released this Tuesday the achievements will activate for ALL savegames. Some are retroactive, some are not. Confirmed NOT retroactive is fully upgrading a building.

If you don't have a save you might as well wait until release, if you have a save that is not at the endgame don't worry about progressing but try not to finish everything. Grinding over progress. If you're lategame you're reasonably safe to keep playing uninterrupted though you will most likely have to start a new game to get 100% of achievements. There will be a NG+ mode; details unknown.

Vestal's heals feel way way underpowered to me
Is a trinket required for her to heal more than 4 fucking hp?
Occultist seems way better. Sometimes he heals zero, but his average healing is at least twice as good as Vestal's (in my experience). She can't even keep one person topped off.

She has a couple trinkets unique to her that boost her healing tremendously.

Level 2 with basic trinkets = 5-7 healed for every character, every round. Good chance to crit for 15+ heals, and restores sanity.

Big game hunting guide; Shambler edition

Here's how to hunt Shamblers with almost any type of valid party composition:

1) Always pack 4 extra holy waters. They barely cost 1k and many curios use them anyway. Pop all of them before the shambler altar. It's good to also have a full stack of bandages or Antivenoms as well

2) If your team composition have Leper, Arbalest or other classes that can't do jack shit outside of their position, shuffle your team beforehand with those guys in the middle

3)Check if you have the following archtypes:
>Plague Doctor
>A very good stunner such as HoundMaster o MAA with stunning trinkets
>A high speed Abomination or high damage class that can hit the 2 claws before they can get their PROT buff
>A crit machine/nuking class to target the shambler itself.

If you have 2 out of 4, then you have a very high chance of beating the Shambler without casualties. If not, then you should reconsider or comeback with full stacks of Bandages or Anti-venom. My favourite anti-Shambler party is Arbalist-PD-Abomination-HoundMaster

How to fight it:
>Rule of thumb is to try and keep Shambler stunned as much as possible to prevent the clapper claws from overwhelming you or kill the claws quickly to prevent damage from accumulating. Alternate between stunning the shambler and the claws to be efficient
>If you're party is in danger of being stressed out, then focus on bursting or disabling the claws. If you leave 2 alive, there's a high chance that the shambler will do heavy stress damage to the party.
>Clapper claws are really weak to DoTs. Plague doctor and a follow up stun will always kill the claws.
>The key to Shambler battles is DPS and crowd control. Ideally, you want to finish the battle before your holy water buff and bandages/antivenom run out. A clapperclaw is scary when left alone but having a DoT is usually a death sentence to it, focus on the shambler to stop it from summoning more.

thanks friend

also, am i the only one that never uses a jester? what's his appeal?
>>
>>128961517

Most people agree that he's underpowered. He used to be the bleed guy, but now houndmaster outclasses him in that regard.

He's the best stress healer, but I prefer to use crusader for that.

He's almost as good at disability traps as the Grave Robber.

His buff song is pretty good if your running a leper or your guys have rabies, or if they're crit machines like the Grave Robber.

Hopefully, they'll buff him a little in the Tuesday update.
>>
>>128961517

I hate him.. I find he doesn't fit much in any group. Finale is a poo skill.
>>
>>128961517
There doesn't seem to be any point in having a Jester when you can just bring a Hound Master that can do more damage, apply bleed on all he enemies and do about as much stress heal.
>>
>>128959274
One more addenum. You can change skills on the fly in the dungeon. Certain skills that can cure bleed/blight on self is really useful in the fight so you can use a lvl 1 version and it will still work 100%

>>128968680

I like to use the occultist as a substitute healer, but he needs to have the right team to mesh with.

Good things for teams with the occultist are:

>Other healers. Plaguefu can cover for him if he cures zero and a bleed. Arbalest can boost healing, so if he goes after her and gets a crit, he can heal as much as 40+ HP if you're lucky. Crusader can also heal a decent amount.

>heroes who can do bonus damage against marked enemies: Arbalest, bounter hunter, houndmaster

>heroes with good crowd control
You won't need as much healing if the enemies aren't attacking you as much or you focus on mitigating damage. There are various ways to do this (stuns, using a lot of protection or dodge) but I like to use movement abilities. If you can't kill the most troublesome enemies, put them where they can't do as much damage. You can always mix crowd control, depending on what your team is.


Other good none-vestal teams are crusader with a houndmaster in the 4th rank. Crusader can heal the first three ranks, while the houndmaster can heal himself.

Or you could take self-healers like the hellion, abomination, and houndmaster, with a plague doctor in the 4th rank.
>>
worth it dumping 15-20 or so fighter levels into my main pawn who is a mage?
>>
>>128969398
With a Chirurgeons Charm the Occultist can get some pretty good heals. Plus if you have an Abomination you pretty much have to bring him.

I had some success with Occultist/Grave Robber/Abomination/Hellion. Since they can all deal with him inevitably fucking up and healing for 0 + bleed by cleansing or self healing. Not sure if I'd do a boss run with them though.
>>
>>128974125
I really fucking hate occultist.
Hes way too unreliable.
Once did 24 heal no bleed. Which was nice but like 14overheal.
Other time, in the same run, did 0 + bleed on a guy who was critically low.
>>
>>128974125
>>128975623
Occultist isn't a clutch healer, he's like a slot machine you pull if you have the luxury to heal which usually occurs when your are stunning and DoTing the last sucker to death. They actually have a higher rate of healing by averages and Occultist having a much higher Crit rate.

Abonmination don't really need healing, his self-heal works equally well as the Vestal's single target heal and also heal a ton of Stress if you're smart enough to put -StressDamage
>>
>>128976308
>>128975623
I've done all my boss runs with Occult/Abom/MaA/Hellion

MaA marks himself, occult has weaken (30% less damage), three members have stun, abom has selfheal, and when abom transforms, he slams into second slot and MaA can still use his attacks.
Occultist healing zero hasn't put me in any damager yet

I also like to play with Occult/Arbal/BH/MaA, and I give the occultist mark

I love the Jester, but that's because he helps prevent "Surprised" shenanigans. His Dirk Stab ability is VERY strong, being able to hit from any position and able to hit every enemy position except for the 4th. Lets you set up Holy Spear shenanigans as well.

Harvest at its second upgrade puts a pretty potent Bleed effect on baddies (though Houndmaster is clearly better at max rank). I'm not a fan of Slice Off, despite putting the bleed at 4 per round at an early upgrade.

Finale is... alright, when you REALLY need to nuke something in the third spot.

What I use for mine is Dirk Stab, Finale, Harvest, and either Battle Ballad or Solo, depending on the area.

That's pretty good, depending on your party. If you have a leper and arbalest in a party, I can see being surprised being super annoying. I prefer to scout, if you scouted an enemy battle, it can't surprise you when you walk into that hex.

Does he increase the odds of you surprising an enemy?

I watched some other guy saying to only use single damage attacks which makes more sense desu. You have mostly 4v4 battles which means if you kill a guy, the enemies lose a whole quarter worth of damage/stress shenanigans (not taking large foes into account) that will never come back. AoE is good for finishing weak enemies so no damage gets lost and stun is mostly good if it can stun multiple targets.

So ye
GIVE THEM NO QUARTER

The game is not as hard as I remember (has the difficulty been nerfed, at least in the first levels ?)

The bosses are tough, though. Both the Prophet and the Hag rekt me, the second one killing my so far only casualty.

The Hag will be easy to kill now I know there's a fucking cauldron in the middle of the way, making melee fighters almost useless, but how to deal with the Prophet ? His attack where he makes the ceiling crumble on my group deals insane damage.

rank 4 MAA is good because he gives protection buff, so you can swap positions of those with high dodge/prot into the red beams signaling the rubble.
>>
>>128995675

>Does he increase the odds of you surprising an enemy?

As far as I can tell, no. But he's the best "shuffler", so in the off chance someone gets moved to an unusable/undesirable position (ex. Arby/PD in 1), he's the fastest at "fixing" that. But you almost always have to have a GR alongside him if you're going to have someone reliant on position 4.

>>129011184

Bring a Bounty Hunter for bosses. Also, bring Hound Master, and/or an Occultist.

For the Hag, bring someone with high HP (Leper, Crusader), and hope they go into the pot. Sucks to be that guy. The Hag is a size 2 enemy, so your BH can use Finish Him to hit her despite being in the back (she's occupying spots 3+4), and Hook and Slice to put bleeds on her. The Hound Master can stack bleeds and do a fuckload of damage using the Dog Treat. An Occultist can use Sacrifical Stab to hit her from spot 3, or Vulnerability Hex to remove her dodge rate. If you bring an occultist, let the HM stack bleeds before you use the dog treat.

You could employ the same strategy for the prophet, except instead of an Occultist, bring a Jester. Have the Jester/BH whittle away the FIRST pew with Dirk Stab and Collect Bounty, while the Crusader uses Holy Lance to skewer him.

The name of the game for those two bosses is "kill them before they kill you". You probably won't out-heal their damage (ESPECIALLY on the prophet), and since several boss get two turns, you can't rely too much on stunning them.

Noted.
I brought a good party for my first try on the Hag : a Vestal for heals, a Grave Robber, a BH and a Leper.
The problem was that my BH had no attack able to target the last ranks, only stuns, leaving the GR as the only one able to attack the Hag efficiently. Incidentally, she was in the pot when I retreated, so she boiled to death.

Also, one last noob question : my veteran level characters simply refuse to participate in lower rank missions. Will this always be the case, or are those characters just assholes ?

It's been a while since I've fought the 12 pounder, but something that might help is to kill gunbandits and fat bandits. When it has two of the knife bandits, push them to the backrows and ignore them.

The knife bandit in the 4th rank will always use a weak attack, and I don't think the bandit in the 3rd rank has any attacks that will make it advance. So you're essentially only have to worry about damage from one bandit instead of two, allowing you to focus more on the matchman and the cannon itself.

I haven't tried this myself, so I'm not sure how well it works in practice though.

Rampart is not used for damage, it's used to stun and knockback if/when you need it.

His other abilities can be pretty good. Put him in the front row, guard the other person in the front row, and have an occultist use weakening hex. Even a giant mushroom man with a treebranch attack will do manageable damage.

The shield bash works well with other move abilities. Neutering an enemy for a turn or two (stuff like putting a crossbow skelly in the 1st rank, or a cultist brawler in the 4th rank) is good, because it allows you to focus on killing a different enemy while the neutered enemy only plinks away at you.

In some cases, you can even neuter two enemies. For example, lets say you have two cultist brawlers in the first rank, and two archer skeletons in the back ranks.

If you use the occultist's tentacle grab or the bounter hunter's hook grab to grab the first archer, and put him in rank one. This will push the cultists back, so one of them is in rank 3.

The archer in the front will be forced to use his weak attack, and the cultist in the back will use his weak attack two. With one tentacle/hook attack, you basically halved the damage your team takes for the turn, and then you can half that by killing one of the enemies who isn't out of place.

Abominations are too much fun, but holy shit are they ever OP.
>>
>>129047330

I wouldn't be surprised if they get nerfed in the upcoming patch.

However, in the new trailer, they showed an Abomination on the same party as a crusader, so at least people won't have to choose between him and leper/vestal/crusader.

I'm hoping that Faithless and God-fearing replace religious as the abomination party lockout. It'd be cool to have quirks play a more integral role than just stat buffs/debuffs.

I'm also hoping that the Jester get a buff in the upcoming patch. He's a fun character to play, but his base damage doesn't scale in the higher level dungeons and I can't justify taking him along.

>>129064327

Let's say your guys are walking along, and they get hungry. Normally, you'd need 4 food to feed them all, with each hero getting one food.

If your stress eater is sufficiently stressed, she will instead need two food, so you'll need 5 food on hand to feel all your heroes.

I only retreated after that shambler fight, but I only commited to it because I REALLY wanted that ancestor trinket and I had like 3 rooms to go to finish the quest

I pulled out with everyone just barely alive, 3 of them were afflicted and I was lucky enough to at least have my BH turn powerful. The 3 afflicted though were single digits towards heart attacks, so I retreated. A good kick in the balls was that the trinket I got was the dinky +25% hp one.

When you're in the shop menu after you select a mission, open your trinkets and drag them into your mission inventory (you should be able to see the slits of the 2 leftmost slots)

If you drag them into the shops inventory, you can sell them for a ridiculously high price, something like 10x what you would get normally I think. You can also use it to get more firewood or scooby snacks

If you shove enough trinkets into the shop inventory, something like 6 or 7, he has nowhere to put any more so any you drag into the shop to sell will give you the gold but keep it in your inventory

NOTE THAT IF YOU SHIFT-CLICK ANY ITEMS IN YOUR MISSION INVENTORY IT WILL BE LOST LIKE IF YOU SOLD IT NORMALLY

I hope that wasn't too much to read

For Abominations, there's a flowchart guide out there somewhere but it basically boils down to a few things. He's pretty simple since there's pretty much only one build for him

1) Never, EVER let him reach 100 stress. Getting an affliction will instantly turn him back to human and he can't turn back again for the battle. You can stack with both trinket slots to around 65% but I won't bet so much on it

2)Know when to transform and when not to. His transform inflicts around a net 2-3 stress to everyone in the party so it's a good trade off for dps. The bigger problem is the self-stress inflicted and that can easily lead to an affliction. Generally, I only save transformation for bosses, FUBAR situations or if they have 2 squishy front row infront that I can instantly rake to death. In those situation, use rake to kill the front rows, then cash in on the damage with Enrage.

3)Skills to focus on: Transform, Chains, Absolution, Rake and Enrage. For camp skills, get the speed and damage self-buff and watch him become a wrecking machine.

That's pretty much it really, anything else to add?

Long dungeons give twice as many EXP compared to medium dungeons and is pretty much Light runs all the way due to the amount of crap filling your inventory.

I will kill myself if they didn't optimize the game, my toaster used to run some 9xxx builds on literally 5 fps, my PC broke on July 5th and couldn't be repaired, I'm stuck with a laptop with Intel HD3000 and it just couldn't handle the game at the least playable level

feels bad being poor

after literally days of trying to diagnose, switching parts from friends' old PCs and getting a new mobo and PSU I figured out everything was fried during some power anomaly, a thunderstorm
it behaved like there was a short but I just couldn't figure it out

anyway, I have pentium 967, 4GB ram and an integrated intel HD3000, the CPU is fine, but I guess the GPU is just too shit

then again, cs:go runs at 20 fps on low, so I thought a fucking 2.5D game like DD would run on playable framerate
>>
>>129097049
How does one optimize Darkest Dungeon?

Think you are in the wrong thread
>>
>>129097712
I don't know, add some fucking options perhaps?

fuck off with blur, pseudo 3D, AA and actually make the fucking fight animations shorter or just turn off all the animated shit from UI, close-ups (those take ridiculous amount of time when on low framerate for some odd reason) speech bubbles and all that unnecessary crap

it's has always been very unresponsive and slowed everything down even on my 7 years old PC that ran it on 60 fps

A bit over an hour to go.

I am ready, father!

>>129098014

to be very fair, it doesn't take much to run DD at 60 fps, just a computer with a non-integrated graphics card that was made in the last five years

This is good. I like to run GR and Occultist, and stuff that decreases bleed resistance like the red plague is a total pain in the ass.

Kind of gimps Hellion's role in shuffle teams, but this is great for people who like to use her to iron swan stressers in the back.

Oh shit, I'm glad I already use a grave Robber. Maybe I should swap out my Hellion for a Bounter Hunter.
