Darkest Dungeon Wiki

The following patch was deployed on 14 February 2023 for Darkest Dungeon II.

Build Update Retail #0.19.43728[ | ]

A new arrival at the crossroads!

The Vestal brings a potent mix of defensive support options and flexibility. Her divine Consecrations allow her to bless ranks in combat, empowering allies who occupy them.

This update allows players to unlock and upgrade the Vestal at the Altar of Hope. Visit the Shrine of Reflection to experience her origin story, told in five chapters, including playable flashback encounters.



  • Man-at-Arms: Strategic Withdrawal's heal effect now resolves after Riposte / Hateful Backstab damage, consistent with the heal timing on Crush
  • Leper: When using Combo to ignore Blind, the Leper will now also remove one of his Blind tokens on a successful hit
  • Runaway: Fixed an issue where Hearthlight consumed CRIT tokens unnecessarily
