do u... have any tips for darkest dungeon. i’ve killed my first boss but uh... barely. im pretty new to it and pretty badddd
omg i LOVE this game, i’m so glad i caved and bought it a few weeks ago
you were fighting the necromancer apprentice, right? the trick to the necromancer is killing his goons. a crusader is good for this - you probably already have reynauld, and if he’s strong enough to smite a skeleton goon in one hit, that’s awesome. if you clear them that efficiently, the necromancer will stay in the second or third rank, which is a great time to blight him with the plague doctor or bleed him with the highwayman’s open vein. and of course, bring a healer. i never leave the house without a healer, especially not for a boss.
for the next guy, the prophet, i used a plague doctor, occultist, highwayman, and hellion. for most bosses, you’re going to want to bring people with skills that hit the back rank. the occultist’s weakening curse takes the edge off the rubble of ruin attack, plus his potentially-huge heals can help you bounce back from them. the other thing about the prophet is that he has low blight resistance, so the plague doctor is there to nail him to the wall with as much blight as you can. i recently beat his veteran version and it was hilarious, by the time he died he was taking like 30 blight damage per round.
my general strategy, because i’m playing on radiant mode, is to over-prepare as much as possible and over-level as much as i can. on radiant mode, you can go into easy dungeons until you’re level 5, so there’s no reason not to bring a team of level 4 heroes to wallop a level 1 boss. you also don’t have a time limit, so take as many weeks as you want to farm money and heirlooms to upgrade your equipment/skills. also, don’t be afraid to look up what the curios do! here’s the curio page on the wiki, if you need it.
if you want anything else, i’d be happy to tell you. hope it helps!
