Latest Patch Launching Today! -

This week brings a little respite for the players of Darkest Dungeon. The newest patch introduces two new characters to the endless journey of death and destruction which has made this RPG so popular. The Man-at-Arms and the Arbalest will bring new blood for those trying to reclaim their defiled estate. The patch also gives us three new bosses which was one of their stretch goals from Kickstarter. Players have a lot to take in as the new patch launches today!



Here are the some of the Patch notes from the team over at Red Hook Games: 

  • Two new hero classes: Man-at-Arms and Arbalest. 
  • MAA is a true tank, with lots of team-oriented skills that tend to favor battle tactics and survival over outright DPS. He has two new rad mechanics: GUARD and RIPOSTE. GUARD allows the MAA to take the place of an ally when a monster attacks them...true tanking behavior! And RIPOSTE lets him strike back in a free attack at anyone who strikes him.
  • Arbalest is a back row sniper and another battlefield tactician. She can mark and snipe enemies, but also can do rallying flares to clear stuns and marks on allies. Plus, a stacking heal that works great in tandem with a main healer (Vestal, Occultist, etc.).  She's a super support class.
  • 3 new bosses: fulfilling one of our KS stretch goals, one each for each currently released dungeon! The Prophet calls down doom in the Ruins; the Brigand Cannon blocks the Old Road in the Weald, and the Formless Flesh lurks in wait in the deepest corners of the Warrens.  Each has terrifying new mechanics...many adventurers will be slain!
  • The Ancestor's Trinket set - another of our KS stretch goals. A special set of powerful artefacts that were carried by the Ancestor himself! Only one of each type can be owned in your Estate..after all, there was only one Ancestor...  Some of these trinkets can only be found in the DARK.
  • The Darkness is more deadly! No more casual "dark runs"!
  • Rumors of a shadowy menace in the pitch black..
  • Graveyard improvements: tombstones for each resolve level of hero lost. Memorialize the dead better!
  • New behaviors for higher level existing bosses
  • Balance updates to some classes, monsters, etc.
  • Monster brain improvements--watch out, they're getting smarter and smarter by the update!
  • Tons of UI and other improvements based upon feedback (e.g. "C" hot key for (C)haracter panel, etc.)
  • And more
  • Many bug fixes.
