Academic study node
Up ahead, the seat of our... regrettable research.
~ The Academic

The Academic's Study is a Node in Darkest Dungeon II. There are many different types of Academic's Studies, each with their own respective appearances and interactions. Upon entering, the player will be presented with up to four options (one for each hero) with different outcomes depending on the heroes' quirks and the type of the Academic's Study.

List of Academic's Studies[ | ]

For more information about the loot, go to Academic's Study Trinkets, Combat Items, Quirks, Diseases and Inn Items.

Notes:

Scrounger quirk refers to all Quirks with the Scrounger tag (Sprawl Scrounger, Tangle Scrounger, Foetor Scrounger, etc.)
