God that was intense fight. My Flagellant was killed on first turn (Maws of Life crit-->deathdoor-->deathblow), Vestal succumbed to blight at the end. I seriously considered retreating several times but in the end rest of my mutilated squad emerged victorious.

So, the only way to remove the "town is abuzz" event is to complete the first courtyard mission, right? And after that, I'm gonna have to deal with the spreading curse, is that correct?

>>182969920
Always kill the enemy backrow first, it's usually where all the stress dealer are.
Focus one enemy at a time, only use aoe attacks if you can kill a target and injure the others.
Stun and kill instead of healing.
Use camping skills that heal stress.
When you're very early in the game it's best to dismiss afflicted heroes and recruit fresh ones

>>
>>182972615

yep. he has like a billion move resist but the crew doesn't, so you have to pull them forward rather than pushing him back. if he's already chained someone they stay chained and you can make it hard to free that person, but if you do it before he chains someone or just wait till they hit 100 stress and he releases them he just passes every time and it makes the fight a cakewalk
>>
>>182972519
Crewman's bell is pretty dank on Leper actually. Stops him from getting pushed somewhere useless, and makes his self heal stronger (15 HP at max level)
>>
>>182972720
You're super duper wrong about how it works. When you attempt a stun, they roll 1d100 and add it to their stun resist. If it beats your stun chance they resist.

If you have a 100% stun, and they have 50% stun resistance, you stun them 50% of the time
>>
>>182972824
Problem is that you need a Leper in your party for that.
>>
>>182972519
I find the bell usefull in the Leper for extra safety in some dungeons, also bumps his self heal.
>>
>>182972737
I didn't think people used things like the bleed stone. The -1 spd doesn't make up for the minor buff to bleed and at that level most of the time things will fail their bleed resist.

>>
>>182974549
I fucking love bringing Flagellant into long champion runs, simply because he's a second healer and massive tank. There's plenty of enemies he can bleed, too, such as ghouls, cultists and brigands. He's kinda useless on the boss battles, though. He's just good at keeping everyone's health high.

I don't like how speed works in DD. I dislike the RNG element and how extremely important it is. In other games you can plan around having slow characters. In DD something like slow draw can be the difference between you coming out of a fight mostly unscathed or you surviving with two people at death's door on a champion dungeon because of how important it is to nuke/stun high priority targets on the first round.

>using the occultist for his heal
hahahaha
>>
>>182979357
His heal is unreliable but sometimes good. He pairs well with high-HP guys who can handle bad heals and take advantage of big ones.

To get good use of him in a healing role, it helps to grab his stun and his DMG debuff to do some mitigation. It also helps to have a flagellant or plague doctor or auntie to throw in an occasional heal when necessary.

Yeah nice.
The only hero I've lost in last 2 saves with Stygian included was a party with Occultist and solely because of his trash heal that failed to get hero back to safe amount of HP after the crit.

How does this game compared to FTL?
Heard that DD devs were incompetent.
>>
>>182982171
Quite difficult and is basically the RPG dungeon crawler of FTL
Whoever told you the devs were incompetent is incompetent. The devs love and care for this game and put quite the amount of effort into trying to make it a great game. Even added options to turn off things that they believe (and are) good for the game because older players were used to those mechanics. Such as corpses being able to be turned off
>>
>>182982171
It's longer than FTL and I'd argue less reliant on RNG if only because a bad turn doesn't mean the end of your run in Darkest Dungeon

Red Hook have their ups and downs, I've never seen them be malignantly incompetent and I'd say they're more baffling than incompetent, like nerfing finale or how annoying the Crimson Court is
>>
>>182982171

They're completely different games? That said, the devs made tabletop game instead of a video game, which is why a lot of people get their jimmies rustled over its "mechanic".

Don't be a fucking drone, the game has a lot of actual problems and lack of variety. DLC only made it a lot more grindy and repetitive than it was before.

And you're just being a crying bitch baby complaining about the crimson curse and not being able to use a completely broken attack from the jester so you blanket the entire team with being "baffling"
>>
>>182982403

Well yeah, quite true. I mean if you really find the game too hard and stressful, the game's script can literally be edited via notepad. The game provides a lot of anti-difficulty of options like plentiful events or nerfing enemy crits, so no need to go full Dark Souls mindset where you have to follow everyone else just to have bragging rights if you do finish it.
>>

Not sure about incompetent, but Champion dungeons are definitely where the fun stops.

Go get your mods to disable the crimson curse and rebuff the jester if you want ez mode

>>
>>182982808
What a fucking imbecile.
Not only the shitty curse was already nerfed and the mission with blood added in the game but the Jester's nerf is also pure retarded shit that happened after devs dumped a pile of shit in their pants with that DLC structure that buffed Jester, it wasn't even any relevant before the DLC and no one wanted to change anything with Jester.
Since you are tasteless brainless drone you don't even understand that the way DLC blends with the original game is pretty bad and 90% of new DLC structures require shit ton of time to grind (and for what fucking purpose, you can finish the game without some fucking 2% HWM crit buff).

>lack of variety.

As much as I like the game, this is sadly true. I wish there were more boss types instead of there simply being harder versions. But of course, considering how Red Hook has been progressively making every new boss as tedious as possible, I suppose what we have now is better.

Biggest issue with the flagellant is his base damage is low. I would rather just rely on his bleeds.

>>182988406
His biggest issues is that he can't perform on rank 3 and 4, as well as having no stun. Not being able to really do anything to enemy rank 4 is also a negative. His damage is more than fine.
>>
>>182988927
He's got the rain of blood ability to hit enemy rank 4. Not that it's particularly great, but still.

Does anyone else feel like there should be an additional class capable of being a primary healer like the vestal or occultist?

There should be a plague doctor build that makes for an effective healer. Perhaps a trinket which gives a strong buff to her heal, at the cost of weakening her stun? Just brainstorming...
>>

Your party doesn't need a "primary" healer. It needs some healer, any healer, to bring them from 0 HP to 1 HP if things turn to shit.

Also, Flagellant heals as much as, if not more than, Vestal and Occultist in ideal circumstances. Often heals enough to be a "primary healer".

I heal a lot with my Arbalest, and the heal buff means after the battle you can heal up with food, since it is affected by the bonus.Some classes also have strong self heals.

tl;dr you don't need a primary healer.

In the same line of thought, Bounty Hunter can also hit the back ranks, because he has a comparable skill. A better one, really.

>>182991638
PLaying the 0 to 1 HP meme is a sure way to get lots of characters killed. Bleeds alone will make sure they never survive another turn.
>>
>>182991805
Playing the 60 hp heal!!! meme doesn't work on harder runs, where a quarter of all attacks can one shot a lot of heroes.
And not bringing a healer doesn't mean you start the run at 1 hp. Having 25% more damage than usual often leads to taking less damage, and the subpar heals on your dudes are more than enough.

>>182992118
A new class that made it so you only use three heroes, but can capture enemies like pokemon would be neat.

>>182995989
As far as I know, if you are ALREADY on death's door and have a heart attack, you don't roll a saving throw you simply die.
>>
>>182996226
You can instantly die from full HP from a single heart attack, even if you're at full HP. Not sure how it works, though.
>>
>>182996360
Heart Attacks haven't worked that way in a long time. Now Heart Attacks drop you from whatever your current HP is to Death's Door. Having another Heart Attack at Death's Door = death.
>>
>>182995989
>Heart attacks are guaranteed to occur if your hero reaches the maximum value of 200 on their Stress Bar. Heart attacks will immediately drop a hero's Health Bar down to 0 and subsequently put that hero on Death's Door. Suffering a heart attack will set your hero's stress back down to 170 if they happen to survive. At 0 health, a heart attack will immediately deal a deathblow to that party member and in turn stress out your other party members.

It kinda splits the probability of getting one or the other. Instead of a 100% chance of getting an arbalist, it's a 50/50 between her and the musketeer.

Well, honestly, doing it puts the game on a timer. After you finish the first quest, things get worse and worse until you kill another boss, and then it repeats itself.

And the place isn't easy, so good fucking luck keeping up with it while your entire roster gets more and more infected.
>>
>>183009592
It's the standalone musketeer from the workshop. Functionally identical to the arbalest in terms of camping skills, most of her skills can only work from pos 3-4, her heal is replaced by a small stress heal usable from pos 4 only, her blindfire gives riposte and moves her back 1 (for some reason proccing the riposte moves her back again). One of the more balanced class mods I'd say.

>>183010102
It isn't that bad desu, sure a lot of your heroes will get infected, but there is so much blood dropping, it might as well be a massive buff for your heroes because they get insanely strong when drinking it.

The only real issue is the infection replacing enemies entirely at high rates. They just need to make normal CC reduce the infection rate while killing the bosses would cure everyone. Forcing newbies to do epic quests or get dicked is just terrible design

I don't remember portraits being such a bitch to farm.

Flagellant seems almost necessary to defeat A P E X, since he can heal himself and someone else if croc crits them both, and he does rather reliable damage to the croc even if it purges DoTs when submerging. After all, the croc with his 2 moves per turn takes extra damage from the huge bleeds flagman drops on him, lessening the impact of curing bleed. Bringing lots of herbs also helps to remove the redeem/exsanguinate debuffs, and the -acc debuff from swarming corruption that can really fuck up your damage output if you don't remove it.

I beat him by focusing the pyre for the first bit of the fight, to keep my dudes off of death's door for as long as possible. Also, riposte and MaA dodge spamming don't hurt much either.

But yeah, after you've hit deaths door with everyone and people are getting DD'd by the pyre in a single turn, just focus him down hard. Vestal actually shines here, especially if you're using a Highwayman as the riposte machine to shuffle her back far enough to use the group heal.

Ive started playing this game a few weeks ago and loving BH.
Just wondering, am I right in using him as mainly a stunner that can do damage when needed to finish off enemies?
So far up to veteran hes been such a reliable stunner I feel like having him in every one of my parties along with riposte Highwayman and Houndmaster/Arbalest.

I shouldn't have to. It doesn't make any sense lore wise and messes up the natural progression of the game.
>>
>>183027568
His stuns are pretty good yeah, there's a lot of ways you can play with him. I usually bring him as a support class with pulls/marks, and either flashbang or caltrops depending on the stun capabilities of the rest of my party. Definitely strong when you "set up" his actual attacks instead of just spamming CB over and over, even though that isn't a non-viable tactic either.
>>
>>183027839
Ive tried using his pulls but they dont seem too reliable or preferable to a stun or damage.
Are Caltrops good? What should I use them for?
>>
>>183015916
>>
>>183027976
I use caltrops as an extra way to deal with the backline, or to deal with people that I really need to miss their attacks, like swine skivers or bosses. His pull is super reliable with a trinket (immovable helmet or better yet, vengeful kill list), and if you don't want to hope that a flashbang shuffles them forward it's important when running a frontline damage dealer like a leper to get the squishies close.
>>
>>183028408
Ah I get why caltrops are useful.But wouldnt a stun trinket + ACC trinket be better for BH instead of a move trinket?
>>
>>183028737
Like I said I do use BH stuns, and obviously with stun trinkets, but that's only when my frontline doesn't have stuns, or if my BH is in the frontline himself. You'd take a move trinket if you intend/expect to be using moves more than stuns, which would be the case if your frontline is something like Hellion/Leper, where you can pull people in to get YAWP'd and Chop'd.

Skivers are fast and elusive motherfuckers with 9 speed and 33% evade. Unless you have speed quirks or trinkets on your occultist the skiver is almost guaranteed to go first, and your leper is left standing with his whole team almost dead behind him because his rotting ass is slow as fuck.

If you need to have more lives than a cat you're playing the game wrong.

If an enemy gets 5 lucky crits in a row maybe your disposable heroes should die like RNGesus(pbuh) intended. What if the Fanatic had the opportunity to survive 10 death's door attacks? Would you think that's fair? Why are you the only one that gets special treatment and the enemies get -DESTROYED- the moment their HP reaches 0?

Serious question:

Why do you guys like this game? The gameplay is tedious, there's no emotional attachment to the characters, the story is pointless, and the lore is anemic- just a sequence of tidbits fellating your "badass ancestor".

Why do you play a game whose gameplay becomes repetitive in the first hour with no reason for emotional commitment? You play a literal jew who sits back counting coins while his betters go through mortal danger- only for the ultimate realization the entire game is a shaggy dog joke. Your ""struggle"" avails you nothing.

Fucking Virago. You're forced to either bring a copious amount of dot skills or corpse clearing to deal with them, and all the while they're shitting on you with the most annoying attacks imaginable. You can't stun the fuckers, and their high dodge makes it impractical to focus them down at the start of a battle since you'll be giving every other enemy free turns to wail on you. You can't even save them for last either since there's no guarantee you'll be able to kill them before they summon reinforcements, so you have to deal with them second to last.

They also make creepy noises when you hit them.

QDC is one of the best trinkets in the game, especially on slow classes like the Crusader or Leper. The first turn is the most important one anyway outside of bosses, and the downside is nearly non-existent if the hero is slow enough that they go normally go last anyway. A x4 QDC party melts absolutely anything and everything.

Occultist still needs the initial attack to go through before your other heroes can start wailing on her. The debuff also needs to stick, but admittedly this isn't much of a problem since you should be bringing +debuff trinkets anyway. Additionally, if it's one of the common giant / virago fights he'll have to devote all his attention to negating treebranch smackdown instead. If you bring a GR your other heroes will still be in roughly the same position, and she'll have to spend several turns doing most of the damage to a 60-70 HP enemy. She also needs a couple turns to really get in her ACC groove, so that takes a while. Either way, the odds are insanely stacked against you for killing the virago on turn 1 or turn 2, which is what really matters the most.

No matter who you bring you're still better off getting rid of other enemies first, and saving the virago for 2nd to last. As long as you kill them with dots she won't be able to shroom you, and there's a good amount of heroes with bleed skills. Putting up with a virago's blights, marks, and moves for the better part of a battle is just barely preferable to making your party the collective punching bags of the other 2-3 enemies for the amount of time it takes to kill her, though neither option is particularly fun.

Find me a better composition for courtyard that isn't Vestal/melee PD/stunbot HM/Flagellant. Even chevaliers and esquires don't hurt you badly with bleeds and heals up the ass ensuring your team doesn't die. Even against the croc it's a viable composition since the Flagellant trivializes the fight.
>>
>>183052289
A lineup that can shifts itself into place.
Arbalest can move 2, and the quick shot can fire from any position.
Crusader, Highwayman, etc that have movement abilities to get themselves forward.
>>
>>183052289
Either have a team that can deal with shuffles, using shufflers like HWM, GR or even the crusader, or else use classes that can be useful in most/any positions like BH, HM, Occultist or Abomination. You require either a healthy supply of DoTs/ripostes or hueg damage output per turn, especially someone dedicated to sweeping up the tentacles, otherwise they WILL rape your every orifice if you leave them alive. Abomination and Crusader are good for clearing the tentacles but Abomination is obviously superior. Vestal has limited use combat wise especially if she gets shuffled but Divine Comfort can save bleeding/blighted allies. BH is strong for hitting the shambler especially if you give him his camping buff and Vvulf's tassel, and/or he has eldritch hater/slayer. PD can stack up the blight on the asshole and clear herself and an ally of DoTs, and her melee attack is no slouch either if you need that last bit of damage to kill a tentacle. HWM and MaA can deal extra damage each turn with ripostes since the shambler's attacks targets all. Leper is highly unoptimal since they lose most of their strengths when shuffled out of the front, although Leper's hew can cut down tentacles easily.

Camp up if you have firewood left over and the mission is complete to get camping buffs that will help you quite a bit in the fight.

Don't fall for the death's door meme. Stack PROT or resists on him if you want him to be useful.

I don't run him on death's door constantly. A faggot esquire hit my team and bled him after he ate an attack from a chevalier. The seal was there mostly as a last resort in case he did get to death's door, he'd have better odds at survival, then he died first tick with 85% deathblow resist.

Kill one clapper claw at a time. Don't kill both of them since the shambler can quickly make another two. As always you should always use stuns when you can if you can since the shambler has a lot of stun resist which means you will need to stack stun trinkets to get at least one stun off.

There are a whole bunch of trinkets and a bunch of different characters and it'd probably be a real pain to make them dangle off of a character.
But there's no excuse for not having visible gear progression, especially since it'd seriously help the atmosphere (you start off with shitty weak gear and as your heroes get better they look more impressive and capable)

replacing sprites by level should be rather simple to implement.

adding trinket overlays would be weird. There's a shit ton of them, you'd need to adjust the positioning of them by male & female because the models are slightly different - not to mention there are already a lot of obscured faces, beards and mustaches on characters for facial things.

Also Abominations.

The hard part would be adjusting it for all combinations of levels of armor/weapon upgrades. Then multiply that by the number of palettes the character has. And the sprites of the character walking around the dungeon are split up into so many little parts which would have to be modified as well on every version.
That adds up quickly.

It was before the elite additions, so no skivers. And having ERRYTHING stunned gave made doggo and best girl time to shrek whatever we came across. Plus everyone having self-heals+camp.

>>
>>183058947
Monsters get stun resist after every stun to prevent stun spam. But if you buffed the skill right, you can almost always reliably stun 1-2 enemies depending on whether their resistances. With doggo's baton+stun charm, he can stun for me anyone except ridiculously high resistant like Supplicant.

How would you make a team of just religious classes? Leper, Flag, and Crusader all need to be in ranks 1 and 2 to be effective; Vestal is versatile in this group. I could see Crusader-Vestal-Flag-Leper working with the Crusader being a Holy Lance spammer. The problem is however that the Vestal has no skill to push herself backwards after the Crusader Lances so he or she would need to waste a turn to switch positions.

Feels good when you gamble and win. Just did champion siren. Garbage map layout - one long snaking path with only a one room branch off; gotta haul through every room but one. Scout first four rooms. Room fights in all of them. Got crit'd a bunch in the first hallway fight so 3/4 my team was <50% health.

Made it halfway through and found a map. 5 fights between siren and party but only 2 of them room fights. Press on. Last fight is a room fight against four groupers. Scrape by and camp. No ambush, thank God. Champ siren doesn't successfully lure anyone til round three. Only took graverobber. Proceed to wreck Siren with remaining Hellion, BH, and musketeer.

Run started off so shitty I almost bailed but ended up pulling a win out of the jaws of defeat.

Nobody hit deaths door though so I think I can consider it a victory.

I attempted the first level of the Darkest Dungeon with my previous "main team" of Vestal/HWM/Crusader/Leper. They baniced pretty quickly but the enemies fell pretty easily. I almost killed the boss, but almost has the same practical meaning as "failed to".

First mistake I will rectify was not bringing a million of bandages. Jesus Christ all that bleed. I've also in my re-grind grown out of the phase where I rely on Vestal healing to keep me alive.

Current team I'm considering is:
Occultist for heal, debuff, and some damage
Graverobber for damage and mobility
Jester for stress management and mobility
Crusader for stress management, and some mobility.

But I keep coming to the conclusion that Jester and Crusader together seems bad. Also lack of stuns or other control. Maybe I'm misremembering but wasn't a decent amount of the enemies unholy? I'm not looking to get spoonfed a best lineup, but I was wondering if maybe anyone had any suggestions for how I fix this team?

You need the occultist to be debuffimng his damage or you won't be able to deal with his rubble of ruin unless you dodge like mad

Also depends on the pew strat for gold or not, in which case there's no way in hell you're getting rid of them faster than he kills you

In general the occultist trivializes most bosses, you don't really want him cutting rather than debuffing

What difficulty is he? IIRC the Prophet gets more actions the higher rank he is. Marking isn't particularly important for me when you only have one to two characters that synergize off of it well, if ti was like a BH I'd say yeah, but otherwise just go for raw damage

Here's the party I beat it with, shuffled backwards for some reason in the Hamlet report.

Occultist debuffs always, without fail, Vestal keeps hitting or healing, Man at Arms buffs dodge, bellows, or guards, and Hellion keeps iron swanning him to death.

I cut it pretty close, especially with his blight and stress damage. The important thing about champion is that I don't think it's possible to outlast him even with the occultist debuffing, he just does too much damage.

I wouldn't bother with the Plague Doctor, try and find something more damaging unless the blight worries you

The problem is heals are literally fucking worthless, absolutely 100% pointless shit, without like 50% to healing. The problem is that the 50% that makes heals REMOTELY fucking viable adds +30% STRESS that means your healer becomes Hopeless in literally one-two fights. Worthless cunt.
>>
>>183091514
Unless you run Flag + Vestal.
>>
>>183091514

Or rather, the Vestal's purpose is to not bring people back to full health like Flag or Occ but to stave them off from Death's Door.

That said, I guess I'm too spoiled by my Occ's constant +10 heals to go back to Vestal. Especially that the Occultist's curse and utility skills never get wasted
>>

Sacred Scroll + book of holy healing/salacious diary gives a total of -10% stress, +58% healing. Even with a chirurgeon's charm + scroll you get 48% and less stress.

People used to put him in front then open up with Finale, almost ensuring you kill one enemy in your turn, then he'd just spend all him time stress healing until the next battle. This was even stronger when the districts were introduced where Jester had a building all to himself that gave him among others +33% finale damage.

This was not how a "finale" should be in the dev team's eyes so they made finale single use only, reduced its damage and crit, also making his other skills provide a buff to finale damage. The debuff duration was also extended to a whopping 12 rounds, and the jester's district bonus was nerfed to provide less additional finale damage. Thus you had to build up the finale across turns in order to deal maximum damage. That was suboptimal in a game like DD because you will secure the advantage if you can kill as many enemies as possible before they act on the first turn, so Jester was made almost completely unusable and screwed up a bunch of people's campaigns. A few days later Red Hook decided to buff Jester again and make finale slightly stronger, but it still wasn't enough to make him viable beyond being a position 3 buffbot/stress healer/bleeder, a role contested by other classes with more damage output or utility. He can't even shuffle well now because of the change as solo was also changed to be 2 uses per battle only.

tl;dr RIP turn 1 finale nukes

Ok, now going for the Drowned Crew. Who to take? I'm thinking Plague doctor, vestal, crusader, man at arms. Any tips?
>>
>>183093178
BH with stacked move chance to pull the crew in front of the anchorman and trivializing the fight. Otherwise party composition doesn't really matter as long as your guys can handle being dragged to the front and slowly getting stressed out.
>>
>>183092758
Looking really good, anon. You sure are busy creating OC, keep it up.
>>
>>183093354
I only have +20% chance pull trinkets, I doubt that would be enough?

light ticks down at 6 per new square, 1 per old square, 7 per new square on hard mode

iirc the weald might have cost more torch per tile to travel in, but i did not see anything on the wiki

Does that include all eveyrthing or is each boss a separate 100 room dungeon?
>>
>>183093556
If you don't think you can cheese it, just use HWM and Leper to easily kill the anchorman, and a crusader will do bonus damage to him as well.

Man, champion chevaliers are such bullshit
>>
>>183094873
i still haven't seen the big deal yet, people complain about them often, but the only annoying thing about them to me so far has been the stun and armor

What are you, a casual?
>>
>>183095102
>Subterranean skewer
>CRIT 26
>Bleed

It's fine if there's only one, but you get fights with two and occasionally three, where a bad round can leave half your guys stunned and at least one bleeding with low HP.
>>
>>183095102
Armor is fine if you have bleeds. It's their propensity to do 12-17 damage non crit with bleed+dodge debuff or stun+move that is annoying. However the best way to deal with them is to stun them then focus them down one by one.
>>
>>183092428
Could be the female cultists. Their stress abilities turn the light level down and they seem to be more common there.
Other than them I think that only seals witches and ghouls can also do that.

I don't know how people get so many stun boosts to chain stun enemies with a base 70+% stun resist reliably
>>
>>183097259
HM's blackjack trinket gives you one of the more reliable ones.
>>
>>183097259
HM and BH have the best base stun chances with blackjack and uppercut, Hellion and PD aoe stuns are also strong enough to get a good chainstun off. Thing is you want each chevalier to die within 2 turns, since it's extremely difficult killing one in a single turn barring huge mark crits. Normally I save the chevaliers for last since they won't infect or stress your party, and if you keep them chainstunned you can heal up the damage they inflict.

A bit of a dumb question but having Steam mods installed affect the game in some way like blocking achievements?

I only use graphic mods anyway so it's not big deal playing without them.
>>
>>183098641
mods do not affect achievements in any way

Why do i only get hm, vestal, occ and crusaders on the stage coach? I have only had one jester, grave robber, abomination, bounty hunter, and antiquarian ever appear.

First off it isn't anywhere close to 100 rooms and secondly you can find maps of it to plot the most optimal routes if you don't want to waste time and risk heroes exploring the whole place

How to use Highwayman effectively? What good synergies with other heros does he have, or which skills are useful?
>>
Any mods that are good/balanced? Been thinking of doing a mod run for funsies
>>
>>183106550
Duelist advance into point blank shot, and have an antiquarian force guard on him. He's also good in bleed and shuffle parties
>>
>>183106550
put him as far back as you can and use duelists advance with pistol shot and slice where appropriate

advance, wicked slice, pistol shot and pbs
>>
>>183085124
>How'd I survive
Just barely, by the looks of it.
>>
>>183106550
good with maa (riposte synergy), antiquarian (riposte, protect me), grave robber/jester(shuffle comps), occultist/bh (pull rank 3 into point blank shot)

i like something like duelist's advance+point blank shot+wicked slice+pistol shot/tracking shot for bosses

jesus christ i won't make this mistake again. nobody is anywhere close to hurt but everyone is stressed to fuck because i keep taking so long to kill the final enemy if they end up in position 1 with high prot
