Plague Doctor goes from good to near-staple in champ dungeons for several reasons: Double blind on backrow, blight is super useful against all the PROT stacks that enemies get, battlefield medicine is essentially a double heal for upwards of 12 health if both she and a companion are stacked with DOTs, and she can remove diseases at camp, saving a shitload of money that it would have cost for your high level heroes at the Jewitarium. Bring her in 90% of your champ dungeons if you can.

Man At Arms also really starts to shine at higher levels because of how much more important his stat buffs become. Everything has shitloads of dodge at high levels so Command gets stellar value, rampart is the definition of flexible (helps activate positional shenanigans both in your party and offsetting the enemy, stun on top of that), and guard is still very good (although not as effective because it doesn't do anything meaningful against AOEs. He should also be a serious consideration for most parties.

The reason I state two classes as being generally good in most cases is because the REAL lesson you need to learn about Champ dungeons is that you can't fuck around without planning your team, provisions, and a general plan of action. You have to go for synergies and eek out every bit of value that you can because fucking up will very easily ruin a run. So choose your party very meticulously, and remember that those two classes are generally a good place to start.

>>130378339
Yeah I meant to ask about buffs. I just realized that the man at arms buffs were for the entire crew. Is the jester's battle dance good? I'm just sure if it is better to buff your team first or try to focus down the mobs.

Is this ltierally the best possible team comp for the prophet?

Hellion spams swan strike on the prophet, hound master spams guards on whoever the prophet targets so that the rocks never do any damage and grave robber spams daggers.

If anyone gets low the vestal can just outheal his DPS.

I actually managed to finish this mission with a party total of 8 stress.

>>
>>130378650
Stun > Buff > Apply DOTS > Heal > Unload > Repeat

Generally a good way to go about most encounters. Jester's battle dance is good at higher ranks but I wouldn't take him in the ruins or the cove because he needs to also be able to get value out of his Bleeds or he isn't going to be doing enough otherwise, and nothing bleeds in the cove or ruins.

To your last point you won't get those rounds where your team gets a surprise on the enemy (or just outspeeds them) and proceeds to 1 to 1 kill all of them. You gotta focus down the stressors and big damage mid to back liners but even then it will take a couple of turns to do so, so buffs become more appealing.
>>
lol
>>
>>130379224
That's what the Vestal is for.
Vestal will heal a minimum of 10 damage single target or a minimum of 16 damage party wide.

Add to that the fact that hellion and houndmaster have self heals and the only one who's ever at risk is grave robber which isn't a problem because of houndmaster's guard.

Just don't bring those Ancestral or Sun Trinkets that give extra Stress Damage. Bring Leper or Highwayman with Point Blank Shot, they can oneshot the Anchor Guy easily that way the Crew can't recover much health from the stress he gets.

Hound Master, vestal, bounty hunter, man at arms.

>Hound master seems to go first a lot so he can either drop the bleeds on everyone or mark someone for a pretty much guaranteed one-shot on something when BH snorts it.
>vestal because >2017-1 and she's the only female healer. She has both heals and a stun. I have no idea what to put on the 4th slot. She heals someone every turn and if everyone is full, she stuns someone. When is anything else better?
>BH because holy marked crits batman and he's amazing at getting important targets into melee range with come hither and flashbang
>man at men because he's cool as fuck. Oh and also buffs. Get bellow and command. Never miss. Riposte versus aoe mobs is fun too.

Group seems to work well, they killed shambler and collector in one run after finishing a medium dungeon. They have no aoe outside of dog dash which does all its damage as a bleed anyway, but the single target damage is god tier.
>>
>>130381308
If I had to fight Siren right now I would bring a hellion, a bounty hunter, a vestal, and a houndmaster.

That said, I'm pretty sure I would bring that particular party to pretty much every boss fight ever.
>>
>>130381160
I personally would have taken a second jester over a second leper but otherwise yeah that's a good well rounded roster

By the endgame, however, you may find yourself ditching some for more MAAs or occultists

Learn the curios, don't treat anyone below 50 stress, try torchless runs.
>>
>>130382118
Suicide runs. I haven't done one yet but that seems to be the preferred method.

I just run long runs, take a bunch of curio-usable items and stack the riches with little torch. I save one of the campfires till I've dealt with all fight rooms, rest up and de-stress. Jester is also good for mitigating the stress of low-light runs
>>
>>130382000
just take bandages for mission 1 and antivenom for 2 and 3

there are no obstacles or curios in the DD

there is a completely optional chest with some gold an a ancestor trinket in the second mission i believe but that is all
>>
>>130382118
Just use the curio guide, try to do long dungeons, they are much easier since you can reset your stress any time by camping.
>>
>>130382118
One of the biggest pitfalls people fall into with DD is the stress metagame

At first they don't pay attention to it whatsoever and have a town fulled of afflicted people or they dismiss strong heroes because they don't want to destress them

Then they overvalue stress removal and dump all their heirlooms into the tavern/abbey and stress heal everyone when they finish a mission regardless of state

The truth of the matter is somewhere in between: Put your afflicted and 90 stress heroes in the abbey if you plan on using them the following week, but don't worry about lower levels of stress on heroes you're not taking out. And of course, remember the order: Wagon >> Blacksmith > Guild > Sanitarium > Abbey >> Nomad >>> Tavern > Survivalist

Why wouldnt you just hire bunch of level 0's and do short runs without buying anything?

Level 1 PD, Level 2 PD, and two seeker Crusaders.

The path ahead was dark and scary, the heroes without enough torches. But the adventurer Plague Doctor's cunning Incision skill and unrelenting zealous accusations made it to the first campfire. The combination of heals and double Zealous Speeches made everyone happy again.

So I continued, and the Crusaders became afflicted, but not incapable of finishing the task at hand. A great dungeon experience all around, and only one disease!

Cove has the Thralls, which are really easy, but can screw you over if you are unlucky. They also have the Piranhas, which can be tricky, but aren't so bad if you know how to handle them. They finally have the giant crabs, which are harmless if you can cure bleed. OP if you can't.

The Warrens have nothing but easy enemies, but toss disease at you which is annoying to heal.

The Weald has those fucking giants who can crit a warrior from full to 0; and everyone seems to love applying blight or disease. It's like the Warrens but even more annoying.

The ruins is piss easy. The only thing I can say about it that I don't like is the Bone General AOE stunning your entire party.

Ruins are kinda comfy to go through right now

Weald though is just hell

Double-size enemies, tanky enemies (like bone defenders), and bosses are all useful mark targets. Witches and bone nobles are all kind of weak mark targets that, yeah, you might as well just hack at in case you get a crit and kill it in 1.

They level up pretty fast anyway : I brought a level 0 PD to a veteran prophet because all my guys outleveled him and she got to level 2 with that mission alone before I dismissed her ass, and she didn't even have a trinket on.
>>
Anyone still have that curio chart with colour coded areas??
>>
>>130392837
The thing is I have a Leper, PD, and Hellion.

The Hellion can maybe sit in 3rd row and spam if it bleeds.

The PD can sit there as well and spam grenades/heals.

The Leper has to go to the front line to do anything.

Taking big damage is inevitable.
Focus them down one at a time. If your backrow is softer, kill the backrow fishmen first and vice versa.
Stuns, especially AoE ones, can buy you some time.
>>
>>130393064
Leper's pretty resilient anyway, just spam solemnity and withstand if you're afraid he'll die.
Main problem is that they might get stressed out pretty fucking fast : didn't test extensively but I'm pretty sure that PD went from 25 stress to 90 in a single prophet attack.

Be sure your other guys are well geared so they can carry your team easily.

no, either you enjoy running dungeons or you don't

from lvl 3 missions and on you will face 1 large enemy like ghouls and the giants in the weald in each zone and some attacks will now add debuffs or marks but most things stay the same

Is 4/4 good enough? Grinding deeds will take me an eternity.

I can however sell a bunch of trinkets and upgrade cost reduction to afford 4-4.
>>
>>130378717
So far, the best I used was Arbalest>Occultist>Houndmaster>Hellion

Arbalest and Houndmaster can mark and do some solid damage along with the Hellion while the Occultist keeps hitting him with Weakening Curse.

It also helps that the Arbalest can bandage if anyone REALLY needs it and the Houndmaster and Hellion can self heal. All I really had to worry about was stress damage.
>>
>>130394232
Ye it's doable, upgrade skills too.

Ruins is the easiest, the warrens is okay-ish if you can manage those meat cleaver pigs with their bleeds and heal reduction, cove is manageable if you can deal with bleeds and have decent rng, weald can fuck you up really really bad.

How do I git gud at this game? I started tonight and I'm almost out of money from the number of times I have to retreat. I'm on the first quest where you can camp and keep getting my shit stomped.

So far it seems like the vestal is pretty much required, which means the crusader is required, which means I need ranged so I can either take the arbalest or houndmaster. Abomination, bounty hunter and plague doctor all seem to kind of suck.
>>
>>130394639
One last thing.

I'm quite paranoid about losing Dismas and Reynauld. Is it wise to equip them with Martyr's Seal and Holy Orders respectively in order to give them time to flee if they get to death's door?

That would put each of their death blow resists up to 79% from 67%. 1/5 instead of 1/3.
>>
>>130395297
Absolute #1 on your priority list should be to keep Reynauld and Dismas alive no matter what. That means sacrificing other heroes if you must, or giving up your favorite trinkets when a hero dies mid fight, or losing out on that 12,000 gold quest reward by abandoning the quest on the last room. Nothing is too great an expense when it comes to protecting them.

Other than that just upgrade your stage coach and send in a few suicide squads to get a feel for the game. After a while you'll get the hang of things. Heroes that are fresh of the stage coach are expendable.

If you get a hero you really like then start removing their bad quirks, locking in their good quirks, and upgrading their skills/equipment.
>>
>>130395313
I rarely get anyone at death's door and I don't use those items
If you don't have better alternatives it's okay, but I'm pretty confident raw dodge, hp or even a cleansing crystal would be better.

do not spend money on anyone unless they have top tier quirks or you really want to keep them just fire the useless ones and replace them

PD is great since she can double stun/blight the backrow and dots stacks

crusader is good in ruins but by no means required

Well I learned a few things about veteran missions today.

1. 100 accuracy is not enough. At 100 accuracy you will consistently miss 50% of your attacks.
2. Enemy damage is nearly doubled. Fish that did 8 damage before now do 20+ on average.
3. Enemy health is significantly higher. Enemys that used to take 1-2 hits now take 3-4.
4. Prioritizing stress dealers isn't an option because the damage dealers hit too hard.
5. Prioritizing damage dealers means your party gets stressed out after 3 combats.
6. Crits can now 1 shot characters. Literally 40+ damage from one hit. If it weren't for death's door mechanics my heroes would be dead.

Overall I decided after 5 combats that I fucking hate champion missions and I won't be coming back until I have 25 champions and have literally no other choice.

Fuck everything about this quest, the only saving grace was the secret room I found that will maybe let me break even on this whole thing. Oh also I got a severe quirk removed from some coral, that's nice.

I just don't understand.

The strategies I've been using have worked every time. I've taken diown every boss so far without issue and I've always left dungeons with close to no stress, sometimes even completing long dungeons without a single camp.

Now that I have to go onto champion missions all of my heroes seem useless. They miss attacks, their damage won't kill the enemies fast enough, and their stress sky rockets out of control.

What am I doing wrong? Why is there such an unbelievable difficulty spike now of all times?
>>
>>130402229
because lvl 5 dungeons dont matter at all, so they just went balls deep with the difficulty
>>
I've figured out how to make the Leper a good, situation dependant tank.

Withstand: While in Position 1, gain 10% prot. and guard all allies. In any other position, have -25% prot instead.

BOOM
>>
>>130402229
because of high numbers.

In champion difficulty your strategy doesn't matter as much since the numbers are so ridiculously stacked against you. The jump is far, far bigger than the jump from beginner to veteran.

It's honestly quite a pain in the ass.

beginner dungeons are supposed to be hard without decent party composition, trinkets or upgrades, since by definition a lvl 0 squad of random chucklefucks from the wagon should be able to beat it.

veteran dungeons are supposed to be hard with decent party composition and lvl 3 upgrades.

champion dungeons are supposed to be hard with perfect party composition, lvl 5 upgrades and all trinkets in the game.


that's why champion is so fucking stupid. It was designed to kill your shit even if you have everything perfectly planned out.

Personally I think that the best way to fix the Leper is to make him doing something also does another something.

Instead of Revenge, which I personally find worthless, Chop could give Accuracy & Damage % boosts til the end of combat.

His Heal could also give another character protection, I really don't find the resistances to be that worthwhile except when faced with Arterial Pinch.

Well I tried to do a run without a vestal or occultist. Instantly get 5 combats in a row and run out of supplies.

I was thinking about abandoning but chose to do one more battle before leaving so I could snag some extra loot.

After the battle I scouted a secret room and turned around to go get it. Except as soon as I went for it a random encounter with the fucking Collector spawns in my path.

This game is taunting me.

Basically stuns, pulls, destroys everything up to 3rd rank since enemy can't usually survive lunge and some more damage, reach, dodge senyrgy with bolster, dots both bleed and blight, decent shuffle options with rampant and lunge and what's important is that both GR and HM benefit from mark. But for champion runs you still need to make up your party according to the dungeon.

The anon I was quoting was talking about what kind of name to give a hellion, not about the name of the class itself.
>>
Okay let me think for a second.

Champion run with this party:
4 Occultist (debuff/stun trinkets)
3 Jester (Bright Tambourine + tank trinkets)
2 Vestal (Profane Scroll + heal trinkets)
1 Hellion (pure damage trinkets)

Occultist and Vestal can keep the enemies debuffed and the party healed. Jester can up the party's accuracy and provide stress heals when necessary. Hellion can kill things in any rank and heal herself if need be. With this team you could also very effectively stall after each fight to get decent heals and stress reduction.

Does this sound viable? I want to tackle champion dungeons eventually and I just can't think of any way to beat the absurd enemy stats without trying to cheese things.
>>
>>130407616
yeah she's celtic for sure

what kind of naming do you think Leper would follow? As I understand it he's inspired from Baldwin IV of Jerusalem. But that name is basically a result of the crusades? I'm shit at history all we were taught in school was about WW2. He's got a kind of middle-eastern feel to him for sure.
>>
>>130408424
I think that would be too much support/defense. Swap out the Vestal/Jester for another damage dealer, so with crits/occultist damage support you can bring down both backliners in the first turn.
>>
>>130408424
you need more damage
>>
>>130408428
>He's got a kind of middle-eastern feel to him for sure.

Baldwin IV was the king of what was called the Crusader Kingdoms. You know how the Mudslimes in the Middle East are all butthurt about the Jews making their own little country for Jews on their turf? The Crusader Kingdoms were basically the Christian version of that. The Christfags went to the ME, proceeded to remove kebab, and made their territory ruled by various Christian kings. The rulers were mainly European ethnically, including Baldwin IV himself.

You can check out Baldwin's family tree in this wiki link to see what kind of names were used for his people during his timeline.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baldwin_IV_of_Jerusalem

There are names like Geoffry, Simon, Gabriel, and Hugh, so there weren't really that many "exotic" names if that's what you're looking for.
>>
>>130408040
This, I've been lurking these threads since release and it's funny to read people arguing about classes or coming up with tier lists. Although it's on a small scale with only 4 dungeons they did a good job of making the dungeons and enemies diverse enough that basically every class fills a role and you need all those roles among all the dungeons. So when someone says "X class is absolutely terrible," I can list all the situations I used that class in where they were great at doing what I needed them to do.

The sore thumbs really are Leper and Highwayman, though. Leper has no synergy with other classes, can do almost nothing outside of damaging the first two ranks, and is way too weak to being shuffled. Highwayman just doesn't do enough damage compared to other classes, even with his buffs and some of the synergies he has.

>>130408790
Yeah I got it right then I guess. But the thing is when Baldwin IV was king his family had basically been in Jerusalem for 50+ years. So they were pretty integrated with the culture of Jerusalem I'd guess, what I'm getting at is if Leper as a character is more european or middle-eastern in his style.

If you want to get the totally not gay couple achievements, do you have to merely bring Reynauld and Dismas into the final mission or do they have to survive it?

I'm planning to keep them in the estate all game and throw them at the final boss with 2 random nerds from the wagon. You want your redemption and fame? You'll get immortalised as the first heroes to get rekt by the spooky thing
>>
>>130415889
Theoretically they would just need to survive until the last dungeon is unlocked, or perhaps just be brought along to it. It does just say 'made it to', after all, and doesn't imply beating the dungeon with them from that. necessarily.

As it stands we don't know since the achievement seems to be broken. Nobody has earned it, so only the devs know the true trigger.

Yes, dummy.
You care enough to have an opinion.

Why do people think they want fame and glory and shit

it's literally about them finding redemption

Hadn't played since Arbalest update, fired the game up, played for a good handful of hours.
Got into cove with my A-team, siren steals my Bounty hunter who recks my party's shit with nonstop critsnorts, second bounty hunter dies, arbalest gets shitfucked by octocaestus and come hither combos, occultist stresses out and refuses to flee, promptly dies. And I thought I was doing well.

Reynauld wants redemption for sure, he has God fearing and kleptomaniac. It doesn't take a genius to figure out that he probably stole something important and got kicked from his order. No idea what Dismas wants though. Maybe he wants redemption for being a bandit, maybe he wants the loot, maybe he wants to bang hellion.

It would be pretty cool if both of them came to the spooky place for different reasons. Two unlikely allies take the journey together, with different goals in sight, eventually getting closer and closer, eventually culminating in a hot gay realisation that none of it matters because they will all get eaten by meat monsters anyway

he'll only gamble, but he's more likely to lose items, but it doesn't matter since he's a known cheat so he can't gamble

My roster's almost all level 5. Are level 5 skills and level 4 armor/weapon good enough for champion dungeons? I was doing well in veteran level and I'm constantly reminding myself.

>>130416502
wanting to be and actually being one are two different things

Every hero wants to bang Hellion, though. So i doubt that's his defining backstory.

I mean, it's bad luck, but it's hardly the most unrealistic thing in this game.

According to American law, they're one and the same.

>>130416552
He has a chronic gambling problem, and he's shit at it. So shit, that he tried to cheat and got caught and banned. I mean go to Reno, it's full of these type of characters.
>>
>>130416552
Think about it like this, two quirks you don't have to remove. Gambling is bad and you don't have to worry about an even worse negative quirk coming along if Bad Gambler takes it up even when he can't gamble.

The problem doesn't lie with gender, that's a different debate. But shit gets all too terrible when countries get involved versus states.

I would argue none of them are.

As to the specific question, which would be most likely of that 0.3%? Plague Doctor. Can hide behind their mask to muffle their voice, and the robes help conceal it as well.

It's nice to have the bonus to level up new heroes faster, yeah. Shame the real loss here is the trinket loss.

No clue. If they literally were somehow required to nerf someone, I guess Houndmaster? I don't really think anyone needs to be nerfed though.

I found a new trinket, Guardian's Shield.
It's man at arms only and gives a lot of defensive buffs but only when in position 4. What am I supposed to do with it?

I guess it's an excellent opportunity to try taking my frontline MAA and turning him into some sort of a buff bitch. He can't deal any damage from the back row without guard+riposte so that's 2 skill slots taken, then add bellow and command to give your team speed and hit% advantage and drop him in a team with high damage to compensate for a fat old man chilling at the back.
MAA/vestal/BH/Hellion maybe?
Vestal is best healer, hellion does the most damage out of all front liners while still being kind of tanky in case of aoe/maa not guarding her and BH because without him the team can't hit the third row.
Or grave robber /hwm instead of BH, something with good attacks/displacement on the third row

How about that, /dadg/?
>>
>>130417402
Arbalist's bandage needs to cure bleed.. and should be targetable to R4, too.

Leper needs a buff in moving forward.

Highwayman needs.. something, i don't know. I just never pick him over Grave Robber if i have the choice.

Same with Sader's heal. I have no clue why it can't target R4 already. It's completely arbitrary.
>>
>>130417509
>giving him Forward 2
Id want this if it gave him some sort of negative side effect like causes bleeding (because him moving too fast rips his skin or something)
>>
>>130417746
It's a shame the guard doesn't last a little longer. A trinket to add +1 turn to it would be great.

>>
>>130417402
Arbalest needs a bayonet jab kind of move to attack and move backwards or be able to target pos 1 at least with the mark.

HWM needs PROT penetration on shots or something like that.

And I don't think any of the heroes really need a nerf the rest are fine for the most part.

Champion enemies need less defenses overall

Arbalest's bandage needs to not suck
