The Leper is one of 14 Heroes in Darkest Dungeon II.

Class Description[ | ]


Unique Attributes[ | ]

Blindness[ | ]

The Leper's huge damage potential is hampered by a high chance to Dd2 token blind Blind himself when using skills like Chop and Hew. Additionally, he starts each battle with up to two Dd2 token blind Blind tokens which cannot be resisted by Debuff dd2 Debuff RES! When using the Leper, care must be taken to ensure that he has a way of either getting rid of Dd2 token blind or by generating Dd2 token combo Combo tokens to negate the accuracy penalty.

Skills[ | ]

The Leper start the game with Dd2 ability chop Chop, Dd2 ability purge Purge, Dd2 ability withstand Withstand, Dd2 ability solemnity Solemnity, and Dd2 ability reflection Reflection. All other skills must be unlocked through the Shrine of Reflection, after which they are permanently available for subsequent playthroughs.

The leper is a durable front-rank hero capable of dealing huge amounts of damage. While also being able to receive large amounts Icon HP dd2HP damage and Dd2 token stress stress for the team, protecting his allies. The main problem the player will see isDd2 token blindBlind tokens. Fortunately Leper has the tools to combat this as Dd2 ability reflection Reflection allows you to clear Dd2 token blindBlind . Leper main damage abilities are able to ignoreDd2 token blindBlind if you have Dd2 token comboCombo , this makes heroes like Portraits-jester Jester, Portraits-occultistOccultist , Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms andPortraits-runawayRunaway good allies for Leper as they can apply combo easily.

The Leper's biggest downside is that he's restricted to the front two ranks. He has no way of attack from the back, and he has no ability that moves him forward, forcing him to move one rank at a time with his regular movement. This means enemies like Pit Fighter or The Lord are a big threat to Leper since these enemies can push him back with strong Knockback abilites.

Tempest[ | ]

Tempest is a pure damage path available to Leper, increasing Dd2 ability chop Chop's damage by 33%. At the same time it increases Leper's Debuff dd2Debuff resistance making him less susceptible to receiving Dd2 token blindBlind (Note: The two Dd2 token blindBlind at Combat Start ignore this resistance). This combine with Dd2 token strengthStrength on Leper and Dd2 token vulnerableVulnerable on enemies make the already huge base damage even bigger.

If the player wants to continue increasing the Debuff dd2Debuff resistance, using Dd2 ability reflection Reflection upgraded will increase it even more. If the player wants to increase and optimize damage, using abilities like Dd2 ability revenge Revenge will give the leper a nice constant Dd2 token strengthStrength tokens and sometimes Dd2 token critCrit for the rest of the fight. For longer fights like Boss fights The Player may want to use Dd2 ability ruin Ruin instead since it has biggest damage potential but is slower.

Despite the high Debuff dd2Debuff resistance,Dd2 token blindBlind tokens can still be a problem, so good companions for Tempest are heroes that allow him to reduce the amount of missed attacks and also give him the setup and tokens necessary to take advantage of and further increase Leper's damage.Portraits-runawayRunaway's Dd2 ability smokescreen Smokescreen applies Dd2 token comboCombo and Dd2 token vulnerableVulnerable Giving what he needs to not miss an attack and deliver a devastating blow. In the other hand Dd2 ability hearthlight Hearthlight can clear enemies tokens like Dd2 token dodgeDodge, helping Leper and all the team while also clearing Dd2 token blindBlind when upgraded. Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms's Dd2 ability command Command is a good skill for Leper as it removes Dd2 token blindBlind and provides a Dd2 token strengthStrength token. And together with Undeserved commendation Undeserved Commendation it has a chance to give Dd2 token critCrit. Portraits-jester Jester and Portraits-occultistOccultist with their constant Dd2 token comboCombo generation can completely counter Leper'sDd2 token blindBlind making him a great damage dealer.

Leper makes a great synergy with several trinkets such as Trinket cultist cruel intentCruel Intent and Goading gargoyleGoading Gargoyle. Trinket cultist cruel intentCruel Intent gives a large amount of CRIT chance in exchange for causing Dd2 token blindBlind , but since Leper is able to ignore blind, he benefits fully from the CRIT chance as long as the enemies have Dd2 token comboCombo. Goading gargoyleGoading Gargoyle is simple since it has a chance to transform Dd2 token blindBlind intoDd2 token strengthStrength tokens. Increasing leper damage and also clearing Dd2 token blindBlind, saving heroes turns.

Note: What is written here applies to both Tempest and Leper in general. Leper's damage is not limited to only this path and The player can easily reach large amounts of damage regardless of the Path they choose.

Monarch[ | ]


Dd2 ability ruin Ruin can give Leper a tremendous amount of damage

Monarch makes the Leper an anti-Cosmic hero when using Chop. Cosmic enemies are the Cultists, the Shambler and the Act Bosses. However, this also guts Chop's damage when used in any non-Cosmic fight, forcing the use of other skills to compensate.

Dd2 ability purgePurge: Strong Knockback , Clearing corpses and can clear tokens such as Dd2 token blindBlind and Dd2 token dodgedodge. Only downside is the rank requirements as it only can be used in rank 1 against rank 1

Dd2 ability intimidateIntimidate: While only usable in rank 1, can target all ranks. Giving leper Dd2 token tauntTaunt tokens to protect allies and apply Dd2 token weak Weak to enemies, clearing tokens such as Dd2 token blindBlind and Dd2 token dodgedodge in the process. It also does a small amount of damage. Giving leper the ability to finish off enemies at low health or proc Deathsdoor dd2Death Blow in case there are enemies out of range of other abilities.

Dd2 ability bashBash: Does a small amount of damage. But the upside is the Dd2 token immobilizeinmobilize token. Nullifying one of Leper's biggest downside: the vulnerability to Knockback. It also Dd2 token immobilize inmobilize the enemy so back rank enemies can be trapped in front ranks making them less of a threat.

Dd2 ability break Break: Does a respectable amount of damage while also ignoring and removing Dd2 token blockBlock tokens. Using this ability against enemies with large amount of Dd2 token block block tokens like Foot Soldiers or Ghouls can give the team an advantage against these enemies,

The damage penalty only affects Dd2 ability chop Chop so The Player can consider replacing it with Dd2 ability hewHew for damage in combat.

When facing Cosmic, Lepers's Dd2 ability chop Chop's damage, Icon HP dd2 HP and Icon speed speed will increase giving you a great advantage against Cosmic enemies. The player must maximize damage by using Dd2 ability chop Chop with the previously given tips and hints.

Poet[ | ]

Leper excels in survivability by being able to heal both Icon HP dd2 HP and Dd2 token stress stress with a simple skill (Dd2 ability solemnity Solemnity). Stress not being bound to any restrictions. The player must take advantage of these qualities by using Dd2 ability intimidate Intimidate to protect the team from damage. Then using Dd2 ability solemnity Solemnity to heal all the damage.

Poet increases the effectiveness of these two skills even more by increasing healing +50%. Adding Dd2 ability withstandWithstand to the mix Leper is able to take large amounts of damage with Dd2 token blockand Dd2 token blockplus Block+ tokens while also have a huge increase in all of his resistances. Making him a great tank against Bleed dd2DOTS, Knockback, Dd2 token stunStun and Damage in general.  

Poet's disadvantage is reduced damage, however this disadvantage is easily nullified with a simple Dd2 token strength Strength token or Ruin. If the player wishes, they can useDd2 ability ruin Ruin or Dd2 ability revenge Revenge to nullify this disadvantage while keeping all the advantages Poet grants.

    Trivia[ | ]

    • The Leper is one of the eleven Heroes returning from Darkest Dungeon, and one of the first nine Heroes to be available in the sequel.[1]
    • The Leper's default name "Baldwin", a reference to King Baldwin IV of Jerusalem. Baldwin had developed signs of the illness in childhood, and was even called "the Leper".
    • The Leper's backstory is unique among the heroes(debatably besides The Duelist) in that he did nothing wrong, and feels no regret. This is reflected in his portrait, where unlike the other heroes, he looks into the light with his head held high.
