Guys. Boys. Friends. Darlings.

How do I force Shrieker fight? I had one (not the event one) recently and got a shitton of my trinkets back. So, assuming I'm a perverted kind of a guy and want to minmax his quirk on some hero, how can I force this mission to appear?

Do I throw out trinkets in loads? Do I send guys with trinkets to their doom? How many trinkets do I have to lose, 'till the mission can appear?

Vvulf appear like two weeks after I got 4 level 5 heroes. The MaA was level 4, but I sent him anyways. I haven't had a chance to fully upgrade the blacksmith or the guild, so everyone was rolling with level 4 equipment and skills. I said "Fuck it," and just decided to go for it instead of sacrificing one of my lower guys. MaA got afflicted before we even made it to Vvulf, and things just kind of spiralled downward from there.

I dunno that I was overconfident, it was that my choices were to sacrifice a level 2 or 3 hero and hope I could dodge Vvulf for a couple weeks to level up the MaA and hopefully get a few upgrades, or go all in and try and do it for real with what I had on hand. I did actually kill Vvulf, remember, just died to the bandits that were left. And even though I lost all my best trinkets, the shrieker showed up right afterwards and I stood my ground against her for the four rounds to get 'em back.

It's not consistent. The sprites usually stick to 4 fingers, but there's a lot of in game art that gives them 5.
>>
Question:
I'm in an awkward position currently where many of my important characters are at level 4 as I intended for them to kill the Veteran bosses before promoting to level 5/6. However, now that the bosses are unlocked, I'm finding myself waiting for the trinket rotations to give me decent trinkets, further delaying any strong Champion team comps with things like Vestals, Hellions, Occultists or Plague Doctors.

Is it better to just get the Veteran bosses out of the way ASAP, or should I continue waiting to get good trinkets out of them?
>>
>>185652707
Veteran bosses aren't really that hard. You want to be well stocked up for the jump to Champion dungeons though.

True, but it's less a question of having strong comps for Veteran bosses and more not having to grind up a fresh batch of throwaways.

I think it's too bloated with features, and that a lot of them are pretty stupid. Like corpses having effects other than simply blocking spaces in enemy formations. Also, there are a ton of enemy "prefixes" that give mobs some random advantage (for example, the prefix "hard-headed" gives them a lot of stun resistance). The sheer amount of different prefixes makes it take ages to learn them all. Sure, it's probably the highest effort mod out there (even more so when compared to shit like extra trinkets mods or scorpiovaeden's mods), but I disagree with most of its design choices. Do give it a try though, some people love it.

Part of the problem is that they made some trinkets that are simply too good, like sun/moon rings. These two single-handedly render most of the CC set trinkets useless. Aside from that, yeah, some trinkets are absolutely retarded, and what's worse, they've been RECENTLY added to the game. You'd think Red Hook would have learned some things about making trinkets by now, but then we get garbage like all of the Flagellant's class trinkets, those stupid curse-related trinkets (as seen on the Courtyard boss' trinkets, like Viscount's Spices), and retarded trinkets that increase damage against some bosses, like Pagan Talisman and Sculptor's Tools.

>>185675529
The only trinkets you ever want to use are the sun and moon rings, there's no reason to not use them since damage and accuracy are god tier. That doesn't left much for variety

So out of pure interest I decided to look at all the Crusader's barks and found this gem on the wiki.

>>
>>185675529
They really shouldn't have made accuracy almost vital in champ dungeons. I always bring at least 4 sun or moon rings because not missing a attack can mean more than anything. One slip up is all your enemy needs and you have to face a dungeon full of them, which is why accuracy is almost always vital (there are ways to get around it like battle buffs, quirks and having high acc attacks but they're not as reliable as trinkets.)

I geniunely enjoy the idea that they make seemingly shitty skills better if you can use a trinket that would buff them but the execution is complete shit. For example, there is no absolutely no reason to choose PD's bleed attack over double stun, blight, vapors, corpse removal or status cure despite the fact they they push hard on the agenda for trinkets that will boost your otherwise weak dmg to mediocre. There are other heroes for that role so unless they buff some skills to be made considering, it's only novelty to use the least useful skills with their pairing trinkets; but outside of it no one would consider them.

you can enable the flagellant, districts and Court separately whenever you want them

main issue is how the infestation puts you on a sort of timer to clear the court and the vampires just replace normal groups instead of having them grouped together with the original monsters

Except it's super lazily done. If they had implemented them to be similar to cultists, that would be one thing.

People bitch about Crimson Court because they decided to be lazy fucks and throw any ability to "prepare" out the window. The infestation mechanic is just not well done. They could have created some area specific bloodsucker variants or having increasingly building odds of getting a "Clear Out the Bloodsuckers" mission or some shit.

Same with the Fanatic. The roaming bosses all have shit that you can do to try to avoid them except the collector who is just the most stupidly easy of them. The Fanatic just shows up and there is basically no way of avoiding it aside from just never bringing someone with the Crimson Curse.

Even just something as simple as making it so he only shows up when your torch is Radiant or Dim Light or some shit so that you could, at least in theory, do a bit to try to manage when he shows up. Similarly to how The Shambler only shows up when its dark or if you summon it.

first mission is apprentice, second is veteran, 3 and 4 are champ level

once the first mission appears all your town events are replaced by a -stress healing one until you finish that one

there is a few weeks downtime with no infestation between each mission then it starts to slowly build up from low to medium to high

at high a special 'gatekeeper' enemy starts to spawn who carries invitations required to enter the court itself, invitations only drop from these enemies and the bosses, the invitations are specific to each mission so you cant hoard them

at medium and high infestation the fanatic can start to spawn depending on how many vampires are in your current party

the mission maps are dd3 levels of huge so it can take multiple trips to complete each mission

killing a CC boss cures your vampires and finishing the courtyard lets you cure the curse in the sanitarium

you can sort of see how this can get tiresome since you cant wait too long but you can't really rush it down either

I could have sworn red hook put in a warning that the first courtyard mission is basically a boss mission that you should bring 4 level 2's on. Plus you probably don't want to do the first mission until you have a whole bunch of level 2's and 3's so you can get to work on veteran difficulty since the game changes a bunch after the first court mission.

So how addicting is this game and is it worth it without mods I'm thinking about getting it for PS4 since I don't have a PC right now. Is it a rewarding game in the sense of overcoming a challenge feels great and grind pays off etc. I don't know much about it aside from I like the art style. Basically looking for someone to sell me on this game.
>>
>>185719482
It's a relatively fun RPG with pretty basic mechanics overall, its quality is carried in its aesthetic: the narrator, the art, music, themes/story, etc. Once you get to grips with what heroes do, what trinkets are good on them/necessary, what zones they're good in and what kind of dangers specific zones have, the combat system really isn't any more complicated than competitive Pokemon.
That being said, even with 100% perfect play being relatively easy to achieve, you can still get fucked and have people die or otherwise screwed over, which can feel extremely unfun when you know it was out of your hands. Outside of those cases however, you'll have a fairly satisfying time theorycrafting and putting together a perfect team with the right skills/trinkets for a zone or boss, and stomping it as a result.
Grinding heirlooms (that upgrade your town) can feel like a pain mid-dungeon when you're choosing between them and the gold that's keeping your hamlet alive, but definitely rewarding as you unlock big upgrades. Grinding in general for the game shouldn't really feel grindy, as you're just leveling your heroes to let them do harder versions of the same dungeons, so if you're having fun at level 0 you'll probably be having fun at max level, since runs are relatively similar. But also vice versa, if you're thinking "god these apprentice dungeons are a chore" then chances are you're just not ever going to enjoy the game.
>>
>>185719482
There's no need for mods at all, especially with 99% of them being bad.
>>
>>185719482
The game stands up just fine without mods, it even has a number of gameplay options built in to disable certain mechanics if you really dislike them. It's difficult to say whether you'll enjoy the game or not because whilst it does reward being careful and playing the numbers, like any game that uses dicerolls it can still kick you in the dick from time to time but that's DD, baby. It's like playing a tabletop campaign, only there's no time limit (on normal) and it doesn't matter how many of your guys die horribly (on normal).

If you don't have a MaA send a Houndmaster with Guard Dog. Bring Bounty Hunter for the bonus damage against humans, an additional marker for bonus damage, and probably a Vestal or Occultist for heals.

Wow, that was easy. My bounty hunter got powerful in the second fight, and it was all downhill from there. I didn't know that Vvulf's bombs ignore dodge, so my doggyman tanked about 80 damage in bombs and scraped by outside of death's door while I slammed the Vvulf to shit. Though not having a MAA almost cost me the mission.

There are hunger checks; they are rare, but more often pops up when you are backtracking.

There are firewood you can get by using shovels on wine crates, but in the baron dungeon, that's only half-way through, after the first crocodillian fight.

Vestal+ GR + HWM + MaA
Your party doesn't really need a stress healer with this, it should crit relativley often. 2 guys have riposte, 2 have dots and 3 of the can stun. MaA can guard GR so you hahe riposte on basically 3 guys. The damage projectoon is ok with everyone being able to hit at least rank 3, tho MaA is rhe only one unable to hit rank 4 outside from riposte.
>>
>>185838580
Why not GR, Vestal, HWM, MaA? There is a good chance the HWM will go after the GR to Duelist Advance which will put her into position 3 for another lunge.
>>
>>185837820
I don't know about champion dungeons, but I was able to handily use Grave Robber, Arbalest, Highwayman, and Crusader.
>>
>>185838647
I just listed the heroes you need.
You are right tho. But I personally try many comps what works best for me.
I find that V+GR+MaA+HWM works ok.
You open up with a lunge, then follow up with DA, then the stun by MaA. This shuffles the GR back to rank 3, and you can repeat or mix it up.
>>
Did that anon ever finish 2B or was he still busy with work like he said?
>>
Antiquarian > Leper
>>
>>185838967
I just don't see how it would work with that set up due to their speed since the Grave Robber has a high chance in going first which will put her into rank 1. Then after that if the Highwayman didn't get a lucky roll to go before the Grave Robber then he will use Duelist Advance and shift the Man at Arms to rank 3 while the HWM is in rank 2. Then the Man at Arms can use Rampart which will shift him to rank 3 to rank 2 so by the end of the turn the formation will be Vestal, Highwayman, Man at Arms, Grave Robber, at least unless you heavily alter their speed with speed reducing and speed enhancing trinkets but I don't see any positives in equipping the HWM trinkets that reduce his speed.

So I got a bit frustrated by Crimson Court and made a mod.
- The insects swarms in the beginning don't stay there every week until you burn the hives, but instead happen occasionally.
- Reduced the chance to encounter Courtyard enemies in other locations. Now it's 5%, 10%, 20% for low, medium and high infestation level respectively.
- Lowered the chance of Crimson Curse transmission to 15%-22% per hit - 2 times less than previously. To compensate this a bit, Bloodlight in Courtyard now gives a 15% weakness to disease, so the chance to get the Curse there is not as low.

Are you high. GR is in third; lunge puts her first. HWM duelist advance moves him to first, putting her in 2nd. Then MAA shield bash pushes him forward and puts her back in third.

Move abilities. Keep the croc in positions 1 or 4, he can't use the submerge ability when in those positions. Man At Arms (when is he ever NOT good) gets him from pos 3 to 4, Occultist is meh because of the interaction with bloodlight but he does have the pull to get from 3 to 1, BH has the Hook for the same purpose, or the uppercut for 2 to 4 (though I have always found that move unreliable so ymmv).

The rewards from quests increase in quantity on veteran and champion level quests. You should have the important buildings upgraded where they need to be before you enter the Darkest Dungeon and it is plausible to do that since something like Stygian difficulty has a 84 week limit. You still have more bosses to kill, more places to do veteran quests, and various new champion enemy to discover.

yea stagecoach is important early so you can get good teams and find heroes with good quirks early, after you get a good amount of dudes and max the barracks not so much
>>
>>185886563
Yeah stage coach is good to a point. You want a decent sized barracks along with getting a decent pool of people in case of a party wipe or just actually having the potential to have a variety of classes come in every week. Though it quickly becomes overshadowed by the black smith just to have characters perform well and the sanitarium to cheapen quirk removal costs along with getting more people treated since some quirks can really make you lose money.

You forgot his accuracy as well which is a huge detriment on champion dungeons since you will be going in with some sort of accuracy trinkets like a sun/moon ring anyway on most of your characters just to get a consistent hit rate on the enemies. Leper is that much further behind that you cannot stack towards his strength which is damage and have to make up heavily on his accuracy were as other characters I can itemize for stun, additional speed, healing, or even scouting. That is if unless you got one of the Shriekers trinkets which gives +10 accuracy and 18% scouting chance but a lot of those effects don't work unless you are on low torch and it doesn't seem like a lot of people like doing that.

I just lost a full party of level 6 people (Leper/Vestal/Grave Robber/ Highwayman) to the fucking Fanatic.

>>185905850
Sure, he has issues, but people either go way overboard and act like they're completely uncounterable, or they say his strengths aren't that good at all. There are lots of dangerous frontline mobs, like swine butchers, pelagic groupers, DD enemies like cultist priest, just to give a few examples. He's also good against many bosses, if you can play around his strengths with the right party comp (and party comps are what this game's all about). Some examples here would be the Swine King, the Necromancer, the Brigand Pounder, both Cove bosses and Mammoth Cysts. But there's basically no real discussion about this because memes are funnier.
>>
>>185908476
Here is the problem, a lot of those enemies either have high HP or high prot outside of the pelagic grouper. What you want to do is hit them hard and kill them before they act, but you cannot unless you roll a very lucky crit on a class with lower crit than other classes (Grave Robber, Jester, Occultist). An ideal move to do so that front line enemy cannot act would be to stun them, which you cannot with a Leper. I'm just not given a lot of options. I am focusing on the back line and when they are done everyone can focus down the front line if I wish to, or risk dragging out the fight for potential enemy crits when they cannot be stunned anymore due to high stun resistance and possibly more stress due to it just so I can hopefully recover a bit to edge my way to the next fight.

I could get another class in place for the Leper as a damage dealer and possibly get some other utility out of them as well, or at least maybe some flexibility. I mean you could look at the Highwayman. Less HP, cannot self heal or stress heal, but is a very strong class just for the fact he can land his hits more consistently and is able to hit the back line.

>>185909554
These are some fair points you make. I'll just point out some things I disagree with, and give arguments as to why.
One-shotting a frontline enemy is an ideal situation in terms of maximizing you combat efficiency, of course, but they rarely happen, independently of party composition. The advantage that the Leper brings to this is that he can take a lot of punishment that is unavoidable (seeing as you'll have to afford to give your enemies /some/ actions sometimes). It is a lot better to deal with high-damaging enemy abilities that hit the frontline (like Seaward Slash and the infamous Treebranch Smackdown) when you have a Leper rather than say, a Hellion.
Also, with his damage, he'll probably 2-shot most size 1 enemies, so it's a very likely scenario that this turns into an advantage for you in terms of actions you allow your enemies to take, and even more so if you can give him some speed somehow (quirks or trinkets).
Now, to have an honest discussion, I want to point out that he really only shines with the right party compositions and trinkets, and that he is most efficient at the cove. This means you have to bring another damage dealer that can deal with backline threats, of course.
>>
>>185909662
The birb also has the other stuff, you just need to fight him again when he has at least 8 trinkets

I still use the Leper here and there, he still performs his role and I think he is a good choice for DD2 since he can take care of himself so you can focus on everyone else. Though the one I brought to DD2 isn't a good representation for the fact I lucked out on an Eldritch Slayer quirk.

>>185925553
On the lowest bleed resist hero in the game, the Leper, and at max levels (heal 5, resolve 6), you have a 2% chance to get a 0 bleed. Conversely, due to the Occultist's base crit chance (tied for highest in the game) and due to crit mechanics (max value x 1.5, not any value x 2), scoring a "max roll" crit (which is actually just a regular crit) with bleed resist on the same leper is 4.75%. This can be increased substantially with bleed resist options or crit options. If you're backer trinkets, I'm sure you'd be able to reach upward of a 20% crit / no bleed chance.

I've never not used Vestals in courtyard progression, since it's just a massive endurance test and spamming Divine Comfort sorts that out easy. Chuck in a backline houndmaster for the stress heals and you can be topped up all the way through until you get croc-blocked. Plus Wyrd bleeding is a very real possibility with bloodlight.

Wyrd's bleed scales from a 59% to an 85% bleed chance. It's fucking nothing. Even in Bloodlight, Flagellants are overcapped on their resistance to it, and most other classes have a 30% of less chance of bleeding.

Hound's Rush is usable from everywhere but the front and can hit all 4 enemy rows, and it's got bleed. Plus twice per dungeon he can buff himself with dog treats which give a huge damage bonus and doesn't use an action. His damage is just as good as his utility.

His Zealous Accusation has a corpse clear on it in this mod and you can use Holy Lance when there are things in the back, so that wasn't too bad. The real issue was actually getting hits on her and measuring the Scratches' HP so that I could set up Zealous for that turn.

>>185941286
>>185941679
Houndmaster has always been one of the best classes in both damage and utility (the latter of which usually means the same thing in DD anyway). Hound's Rush is a god-tier combat skill since it hits any row with its great damage, and that's not even regarding buffed damage with dog treats. On and he has the best single target stun ability in the game. I don't think HM should be nerfed though so much as other classes/skills should be buffed. This is all an excuse for me to say Caltrops should just be able to hit both back rows at once on use.
>>
>>185942345
>Great damage
The damage is okay. HM is on the lower spectrum of damage dealers, and relying on DoT's to make up the remaining damage sucks when you're trying to insta-gib key threats.
>>
>>185942676
For a class that can do his main damage skill in any position save the very front row his damage is good and is excellent with a marked target. The damage is even better considering he can guard other heroes, self-heal, do a full party stress heal and have one of the highest single target stuns in the game. He doesn't have the damage of Hellion or Leper but no other class has as much utility with his level of damage which is why he's been in the top-tier of heroes since release.

>>185947976
>one room left
>continue on for sweet loot

the only explanation here was that you knew the last room was a treasure room and the hallway contained a collector AND a shambler, and you were in 0% light the whole time

is the bad feel you're feeling the feel of being a dumbass
>>
>>185948215
It was a room battles mission that was already completed, so I knew I wouldn't have to do another fight. Light was low since I ran out of torches
>>
>>185948712
If you knew there wasn't going to be a room battle then why bother exploring the last room? It wouldn't have anything inside it and unless you were in the ruins you aren't going to find much in a single corridor.
>>
>>185945423
don't rush bank, just get it when you feel you need it
>>
>>185948215
Some people leave things behind since your inventory is fairly full at the start and will eventually empty out with the usage of provisions over time thus it is good to back track to pick up all the other loot.

He is taking the risk and living. You are pretty much dead.

>>185948823
I just want to put it out here, although encountering a Shambler on Apprentice difficulty in the dark is very low (1% per hallway check) it's actually very high at Champion level (12% per hallway check).

If you're in a Champion level dungeon and it's pitch black, you WILL encounter a Shambler. In fact, there's a decent chance you'll encounter multiple. Bring torches, don't walk through unscouted hallways without them, and always assume that every battle you take in pitch black will be a Shambler.

>Vestals
There's no reason not to like Vestal.
>>
>>185963650
The reason not to like Vestals is that they're stuck-up little bitches that refuse to let me rock 'n' roll with an Abom.
Also low accuracy on all their attacks including stun is painful.
>>
>>185964020
I run Ancestor Pistol and healing head on my Vestals.

>>185964295
>>+30% Stress
How do you deal with increased stress DMG?
>>
>>185964679
Well. I usually slap enemy faster than they get a chance to stress out my team.

For instance, my waifu-squad (GR, PG, Vestal, Hellion) which I presumed to perform terribly, ended up tearing through champion-level content with ease.
They focus down 3rd/4th rank most of the time. When I see they won't be able to do it, I throw in a stun or two.
All of them hold a considerable amount of +stress, but the enemy rarely gets a chance to capitalize on that and they get considerable amount of stress-heal from crits.

This being said, this team comp doesn't forgive mistakes, because a wasted action can easily result in them receiving too much stress/damage they'll be able to deal with.

In other squads, I just have a stress-healer.

More of less, they also do very well with a highwayman as you can force guard him when he has his riposte up. But Granny isnt completely worthless in combat even though shes weaker than others.

For the most part. They have a camping skill that gives you a random trinket (Common-Very Rare) and another that gives you a random supply item - similar to the Grave Robber skill, really, except Antis can use it three times per rest. This allows you to optimize your inventory space to a certain extent. Their Blight skill is decent in the Ruins and Protect Me is a nice buff for a riposting Highwayman or Man at Arms.
