I notice a new quote today while in town but I'm not sure what triggered it. Do heros say different things based on stress level? I know there's the excited quotes, and the freaked out quotes, but is there anything in between?
>>
>>129388210

From the heroes? They have medium stress quotes as well. They were in at the very beginning, but they were bugged at the time leading to goofy things like heroes acting all traumatized dispute only having 3-5 stress.

>>129389151
Basically by using stuns and push/pulls you essentially insure that stress units will croak before they have a chance to do harm, and with bigger guys you can stack the dot to do ludricrous amounts of damage per turn.

The advantage over pure damage is that it helps to work around high dodge/prot units, so you aren't forced to use the Houndmaster all the time.
>>
>>129389151
for example:
>>129387409

>>129389680
...the houndmaster always seemed really shit at damage. What role does he fill?

So you pull stressor enemies into the front lines and then beat them down?

I can definitely see the point in DoT on later game enemies and bosses with high prot.
>>
Why do we tarry and invite danger?
>>
Anyone has the table with all the named characters?
>>
>>129389151
It's very simple: If the target has high PROT, DoT will do more DPS. If the target is a skirtty Mofo with barely any health, DoT are usually more accurate and will gib it in 2 turns

>>129389992
Stack Stun so that you can stun Size 2 Monsters and Bosses with only 1 move, like Shambler, Swine King and Collector. You can even stack stun on weak enemies twice if you want to heal up. Stunning a DoTed enemy basically means it has to eat the damage twice which is usually enough to kill it.

For Houndmaster, his strength is that his Stun is godlike, he hits anywhere from Rank 2-4 so if you absolutely positively need to nuke someone, you can eat a scoobie snack and do it. Use his dodge guard to protect someone on death's door and his party stress heal if you are in trouble. Finally, just mark shit if you want to deal damage, the damage is usually more than x2 due to the -Prot.
>>
So I remember watching the dev's do art for the game and talking about mechanics a long time ago on a twitch stream, like before the earliest beta.

I remember the guy talking about the stress symbol, and what it was supposed to represent, and how it would show up in enemies designs.

They also said it had something to do with the final boss.

Now that its actually out you can tell it's actual represents the flesh beast bursting out of the earth/hatching

I think it's cool how that works, and that the devs knew how they wanted to end the game from the start.
>>
>>129390452
Call me a noob here because I haven't beaten the game yet (restarted my save since the game came out), but how do you stack DoT so high that a boss could die from it in 2 ticks?!

Ah, I see. Perhaps I should retry the HM.

>>129390567
"Begin with the end in mind." Good advice for a writer or game designer.
>>
>>129390567
Isn't that the symbol of the locus beacon?
>>
>>129391117

Yes. That symbol shows up all over the place. The lot of monsters carry the symbol, like the necromancer.
>>
>>129388630
Something about a chance to sit down or something.
>>
>>129390912
You won't be able to kill a boss in 2 ticks, I'm talking about spiders and dogs who will gib you very quickly in Champion runs. But some bosses are either in position 4 permanently which makes it hard to hit except by snipers or have 2 turns which makes DoT really damn powerful or is the Flesh boss.
>>
>>129391339

Meanwhile, some heroes use the destress (golden arc, with no spikes in it) symbol for their abilities, like the Leper and Crusader. Even the Occultist, who uses the exact same freaky magic the monsters use against you, uses a variation of the destress symbol in one of his attacks instead of a stress symbol.
>>
>>129391682

Here is the destress symbol for Crusader's Zealous accusation for comparison.
>>
>>129391682

all in all I still think the coolest thing about all this is that this rabble of thieves and murderers drag themselves into this only to be the heroic safeguard against the world's demise
>>
debuff chance does not count toward stun chance, does it?
>>
>>129391931
Of course. Debuffs are orange, stun is yellow. Learn the difference. It can save your life.

Little is known about it, other than:
The Gender: Female
A general idea of her appearance: She will have a "silk road" aesthetic.

There is a rumor she will have a blunderbuss, but that might not be true.

One thing I don't like about the game's ending is that all throughout the game you are told by the ancestor that
>you CAN beat the evil, there IS hope, and all your sacrifices will bring peace to this troubled land once the horrors of the manor are defeated

yet once you beat the game, that very same ancestor starts saying
>yeah victory was pointless, your sacrifices amount to nothing, everything you did was for naught and no matter what you or anyone else does the horrors will win in the end

It just left a bad taste in my mouth to be honest
>>
So any ideas about how long devs will support the game after release? I seriously hope for some more gameplay changes, maybe add some more player agency and spice up the grind.

Staring a new file. Any suggestions for some new dankass team combos to try out?

So far my favorite is:
Arbalest>Occultist>Abomination>Hellion

My close second is:
Houndmaster>Occultist>Bounty Hunter>Leper
>>
>>129400587
The arbalest is an affirmative action hero.

>>129400505

Such is the way of The Ancestor. He instilled you with false hope so that you would press on.

But the reality of this game is there is no hope.

>>129400282
These "nothing you did made any difference" endings ruin video games. It was clever the first time. Not anymore.
>>
>>129400587

One character you keep putting in every party despite them not always being the best fit just because they are cool?

Snuff out the torch as soon as you enter the dungeon.

Leper.
>>
>>129401284
It's when you take a teamcomp with
Arbalest-Occultest-Houndmaster - Grave Robber

But hellion is a total fit for every single dungeon. Nothing wrong with a hard hitting and fast melee hero that can target every single enemy rank.
>>
>>129401413
Does like do something specifically? Or just what the torch icon normally says, extra loot, extra enemy damage, yadda yadda.

different anon here, what provisions do you guys equip give to the poor saps? 4 food and 1 of each curio interaction item? an extra key in case of a secret room maybe?

After you spend a lot of gold putting together some champion level teams, money becomes much less of an issue because there won't be enough inventory space to bring back all the gold you're gonna find.
>>
>>129404134
I usually send them on short missions.

8 food, about 4 torches to keep light up slightly, and a shovel.

Ruins: 2 holy water, 2 keys
Weald: extra shovel, bandage, antivenom, key
Warrens: holy water, bandage, key
Cove: extra shovels and a few herbs

Ancestor accidently summons eldritch world ending abomination which fucks up everything as you expect.
You travel there to end it.
You're able to seal it away temporarily.
You eventually succumb to stress just like he did but not before sending a letter to your heir in the hopes that they succeed where you failed.

Theres possibly some time-bullshit involved wherin you're sending the letter that brought you to the hamlet in the firat place, but im not sure.
>>
>>129406501
>>129405818
Basically
Some guy writes to you to reclaim your home from the Dankest Dungeon. You find out the Dungeon is actually a gate to the core of the planet where you learn that the planet itself is gestating a cosmic horror from which all life came from and will return to upon death. You start getting meat vision and are driven to madness just as you manage to put the monster to sleep again. But since it will always try to re-emerge from it's meat-egg and destroy the world, you need to keep constant vigil. Or failing that, maybe just kill yourself and have someone else do it.
>>
>>129406341

You won't see it unless you donated enough shekles to the kickstarter campaign.

Even though it's kickstarter exclusive, I have a feeling you'll probably just need to edit a line or two in the files to make her available to recruit for anybody.

I want a Negative Quirk that makes heroes become too attached to trinkets youve equipped to them. Meaning you cant unequip them and put them on the next guy.
It would stop me from rotating my top trinkets around different heroes. And also they might lose them during town activities.

Think of a Negative Quirk you'd want to be added to the game (but wouldnt necessarily want your heroes to get).

>2nd Quest in the Darkest Dungeon
>PD, the only one without the Talisman of the Flame, kept getting targeted by Revelation in the 4th rank everytime guard wore off
>MaA goes COURAGEOUS while Occultist turn into a simpering paranoid old fart.
>Final Templar set, outta scoobie snacks so Occultist needs to Mark for Houndmaster to one shot. Somehow I kept missing 70% attacks but MaA's Retribution is hitting it while it tries to push me away
>Occ suddenly eats a stinger to the face and dies to blight just as MaA's manage to swat away the Polyp. Situation is tense so I guard for extra PROT
>MaA down to death's door. Templar does revelation and suddenly COURAGEOUS MaA leaps in to tank for his Houndmaster Bro. DEATHBLOW
>Houndmaster is now in row 1. Can't use Houndrush and kill it in 2 turns
>Rushes the fucking Templar with his blackjack and clobber it to death with his tiny stick over 10 turns while it kept showing horrifying cosmic revelations. The Stun being the only thing that kept it from raping Houndmaster with his 2 actions
>Finally finish it off at 6 HP. GTFO and got tapeworm as the disease.

Now onwards to the final dungeon, thank god my A-team is ready.

Thinking of doing Palette Swaps for heroes, I'll try to pump out at least 1 weekly, any idea where I should host them? I don't really wanna bother with Nexusmods.

Anyway, my first try. Based off Sir Justin from Seven Soldiers of Victory, thinking of doing a Vigilante one for Highwayman. The key to not making the colors too garish is to never ever increase saturation or brightness. If you're trying to lighten the color, lower saturation, if you're trying to darken it lower brightness but not to the point where the shading is barely noticeable or gets ruined.

That's actually untrue.

Human souls go back into the heart when bodies die. Pigs are human souls summoned from the heart into animal bodies that were affected with the flesh essence that the Ancestor spilled near the Warrens. That's why they behave almost like humans. The essence itself mutated pig bodies, sometimes unppredictably (the Flesh boss).

"Ancestor" probably killed himself, but due to his arcane knowledge retained some form of control over his spirit. You see, all souls go back into the Heart when humans die, so naturally that's what he did. He wasn't really your ancestor though. He just wanted more bloodshed for the Beast to awaken and make a world single being again (instead of multiple lumps of flesh that it is now). You shot yourself in the end because you couldn't handle constant meat vision, thus writing a letter to your descendants so they could come back and keep the Beast sleeping, as the history is an endless cycle.

Another interpretation is that the world actually ends when the Heart "dies" and reborns, thus starting the cycle anew.

Quad HWM setup.
The one on point uses PBS. This can cause a switching meatgrinder sometimes, which is great. Two middle ones grapeshot or pistol shot high value targets.
One at the back pistol shots.

I'm too inexperienced to say, but so far, I've noticed that you want to build a party for the area. The cove mainly is big on Eldritch and High Prot minions. So I try to get Occultist and a blighter in my party when going there.
>>
>>129429625
Look out for synergy, teams that cover each base, or that play of each-other so nicely that it doesn't matter.

My go-to team is Occultist/Jester/Abom/Abom

1st Abom: Turn every fight, kill stuff, try to cheese some self-heals when the battle is virtually won.

2nd Abom: blight and stun from rage, self-heal if you need to. Panic mode: activate both abominations

Jester: buff song unless someone needs stress heal, this is the guy that allows you to carry an always-turned abomination, will even help you stay in fights where you need the two like with bosses or surprise parties. You will most likely stress heal or stack buff all the time, but keep a bleed attack and the shiv stab just in case.

Occultist: both aboms do a decent job of healing themselves, so vestal team-heals are not required (and impossible to get in the same team), he will AA the backline and pull the stressers of the enemy's 4th row, clear corpses, consider debuffing dangerous enemies.

This team kills the cove, and really works well anywhere. Specially if you give the Occultist the anti-eldrich incense.

Okay so I've bought this game since it's finally out of early access, and holy shit it's buggy.
I tried it on my first computer and the game crashed on the Red Hook screen before the intro. I disabled the steam overlay and that fixed it, but I still had some minor graphic glitches.
Now I'm trying it on my other computer, and the game crashes on the loading screen when I'm loading my game, and I can't find a fix for it.

How the hell did they consider the game was good to be released? If it's feature-complete but still buggy it means that it's a beta.

He's actually at his best in Champion dungeons. Overall his damage falls short but he makes up for it with a great stun, guarding, and being able to debuff enemy speed/dodge to shit. Also Bellow likes to crit often, given that it's aoe, and does good stress healing.

extra, I thought I was gonna have to override some skins but it works. Just put them in the hero folder and you're good to go.

It happened because your party combo was fucking retarded.
>>
>>129440005
I don't know, Jester's stress heal is really good. Maybe you didn't use it as often and made him attack?

I find it's better to keep him in the back with finale, entire team buff skill, stress heal, entire forward enemy debuff, and just spam stress heal and buff, unless you can give him some space to try for crit.

Fixed Aboms doing weird things while charmed by the Siren
Fixed some more heroes not having skills unlocked.
Fixed ability to drop trinkets into provisioning inventory
Fixed Save Reload issues around exiting the game after completing a quest

>>
>>129441594
Most people on Steam buy games to never play them. But yeah, achievement stats are weird sometimes.
>>
>>129441594
Honestly, achievements just feel like people feel the need to have, it's retarded.

There's no point for games to have achievements anymore, no one checks what their friends have unlocked, it's just for people with OCD.

Does it count as backtracking if you turn around in a room and head back down a hallway you've been to, or only if you stop mid hallway and backtrack to the room you started from?
>>
>>129442236
Only when you're literally walking backwards.
>>
>>129442236
That's exactly what backtracking is. Fear not though, the stress gained from backtracking isn't very high and torch usage is lowered while backtracking.

What's the point of putting your man at arms in position 4?
just to run bolster command and defender?

seems like a waste of good stun and damage

Does torch level affect the stress you gain just walking in the dungeon, or does it only affect the stress gained during fights.

>>129442461
>What's the point of putting your man at arms in position 4?
There isn't one. Position 4 should always be for Occultist, Vestal or Jester.
>>
seriously disappointed they never came up with anything better than the "This dungeon is below me" mechanic

playing a run where you aim to clear all bosses is tedium moreso than challenge
>>
>>129442461
He can Bellow, Bolster, Command and Guard from position 4.

I guess it makes for a jester-ish support class.
>>
>>129442682
you mean occultist, vestal or arbalist
>>
>>129442682
jester is garbage in pos4, pos3 is his strongest

How do you guys name your characters? Do you keep the default, or do you try to give them specific names?

I've been giving names of friends and people I know to characters that would fit, but it's getting hard to find some appropriate names for some classes. I have avoided getting a man-at-arms or a beastmaster for this very reason, I don't know anybody with a fucking dog nor an old guy that isn't my dad. Custom skins mods help, but they don't exist for all classes.

>>129443289
I remove "ville" part from the ones that have it because jesus christ half of my heroes had ville at the end of their name.

AoE and does huge damage. It has a chance to misfire and do nothing, healing some stress on your party.

I may try drawing some custom made characters copying the style (I'm a prof. artist). Anything you guys may suggest? I can't promise result, just may do it later for funsies.

I had in mind some kind of druid like hermit or some seafarer guy.

Heroes can lose trinkets in your inventory as well.

came here to post this, 2/3 of my current runs are darkruns with freshmen just to grind to the bosses on apprentice level while my level 3-4 areslowly running out, hitting 5 after what feels like 2 missions.
god I'm glad when I finaly can just focus on champion level and the occasional lower run to level up new dudes.

Reverse gender classes.
Or just classes visual variations(like different looking helmets/hats/weapons/armours/clothes/hair). heck even more recolours will be nice.
Its very easy to add new visual variants to the classes.
Or add new gender bender classes.
