The Antiquarian is a Pillager miniboss in Darkest Dungeon II.

Description[ | ]

Once, the antiquarian fought side by side with the heroes in the fight against the darkness; not out of honor or selflessness, but for her own personal gain. Those times are gone, and with them any bond that was forged between her and her former companions. Now, she and her new entourage seek to take advantage of the chaos and disharmony of the world, robbing any and all who cross their path of their Relics. Though not a fighter, she more than makes up for it by her cunning tactics and deceiving incenses. She empowers her allies and disorients her foes with an assortment of exotic vapors, and should she be forced to defend herself, she is equipped with a dagger, though the idea of having to use it makes her nervous. Even when defeated in battle, she manages to escape each time, the heroes never seeming to be able to strike her down for good. The Antiquarian is motivated by greed, and usually attacks when her prey is laden with vast wealth.

Combat Skills[ | ]

The antiquarian prefers to stay in the backline, from where she empowers her allies with Dd2 token dodge Dodge and Dd2 token strength Strength tokens, or weakens her enemies, Dd2 token daze Dd2 token stun Disorienting and Dd2 token blind Blinding them. Being more of a tactician than a warrior, she will make sure that her allies keep her safe, Dd2 token guarded guarding her from incoming attacks. However that does not mean she is harmless; her incense is capable of producing Blight dd2 Blight inflicting vapors to engulf and poison the heroes, and if cornered she will use her dagger in an attempt to fight back. Defeating her is a difficult task; she is very elusive and her allies won't let you get to her without a fight.
