Of all the Cultists who have gathered throughout this land, there are a select few whose fanatical devotion and worship is so great that they received a "Great Blessing" by their New God and had their bodies remade in its image – a twisted amalgam of flesh, teeth, eyes, and tentacles to a "comprehensible" form unlike previous failed attempts. This new form makes the Cultist Priest a highly deadly foe within the Darkest Dungeon, as it is fast, deadly, and frightening, in exchange for no longer being recognizably human.

Because of these "Great Blessings", they are among the highest ranking members of the cult, hiding their new and hideous forms underneath luxurious ritual cloaks and never seen outside of the blasphemous sanctuary they have constructed deep beneath the manor. It is their job to carry out the devilish and arcane rituals that strengthen the thing and hasten the end.

Behavior[ | ]

With their combination of high speed, high damage attacks and their ability to inflict debuffs, heavy bleed, and Stress, Cultist Priests should be considered the highest priority in battle, unless accompanied by an Ascended Witch. Use Stuns and your most damaging attacks to take them down quickly.
