Notes
Wyrd Reconstruction has a number of unique interactions with critical healing:
  • The critical heal does not use the maximum value of the skill as in the case of a critical attack, but the randomly rolled value. This means that it is possible to roll a critical heal for 0% of the target's health while simultaneously bleeding the target.
  • A critical heal restores 200% of randomly rolled amount instead of the usual 150%.
  • The upgraded version of this skill is the only heal in the game that has a 10% chance to critically heal instead of the usual 5%.
  • When the Occultist has both a Dd2 token crit Crit token and 2 Dd2 token uncheckedpower Unchecked Power tokens, only the Dd2 token uncheckedpower tokens will be consumed.

🔸In the early game when the Occultist does not yet have access to his entire skillset, his main roles in battles are applying Negative Tokens on enemies to reduce their combat efficiency or healing allies on critical condition. As players progress through Shrines of Reflection, the Occultist will gradually gain more offensive skills that allow him to become an effective damage dealer. These skills involve a mechanic unique to the Occultist - applying Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power and consuming said Tokens to unleash powerful damage and effects. While Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power offers valuable benefits, it can bring subtle risks to the Occultist.
Separator

🔸Offense: In order to dish out a large amount of damage, the Occultist must take advantage of his unique Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power Tokens.

  • At the beginning of the game, Dd2 ability sacrificialstab Sacrificial Stab will be a offensive move of the Occultist and also a main way to acquire these Tokens. Because of its unusually high base CRIT chance (up to 20%), Dd2 ability sacrificialstab Sacrificial Stab can be quite effective when combined with CRIT bonuses from various sources such as trinkets (Heartseeker), and a low Flame level. As the skill requires Dd2 token comboCombo to apply Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power, the Occultist should combine it with his Dd2 ability weakeningcurse Weakening Curse and Dd2 ability daemonspull Daemon's Pull or go with Heroes capable of applying Dd2 token comboCombo (Portraits-jesterJester,Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms, etc.). It is important to time the use of Dd2 ability sacrificialstab Sacrificial Stab, as the skill will apply another Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power if it manages to kill a target.
  • In the beginning turns of a battle, upgraded Dd2 ability bindingshadows Binding Shadows can replace Dd2 ability sacrificialstab Sacrificial Stab. Besides requiring a Dd2 token comboCombo Token like Dd2 ability sacrificialstab Sacrificial Stab, it has a high chance to provide Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power when used, without the requirement of a kill. However, the downside from Dd2 ability bindingshadows Binding Shadows is that the Occultist will have to move forward, up until Rank 1 where he can not use Dd2 ability theburningstars The Burning Stars.
  • Chaotic Offering

    Dd2 ability chaoticoffering Chaotic Offering can be a double-edged sword

    Dd2 ability chaoticoffering Chaotic Offering is seemingly the fastest way to gain Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power, giving the Occultist 2 Tokens after just one use, and even more Tokens for subsequent turns. However, using Dd2 ability chaoticoffering Chaotic Offering can be quite risky - it takes away at least 10% of Occultist's Icon HP dd2HP. On top of that, the Occultist may receive even more Burn dd2Burn damage or random Negative Tokens, including Stun dd2Stun. The Occultist can boost his Debuff dd2 Debuff Resistance by equipping his personal trinket Cleansing Censer or any other similar trinkets to have a greater chance of avoiding harmful Tokens.
  • As the Occultist unlocks his skills, he will gain access to substantially more devastating skills such as Dd2 ability malediction Malediction, Dd2 ability anamnesis Anamnesis, and Dd2 ability theburningstars The Burning Stars. After gaining at least 2 Tokens of Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power, said skills can be used to wreak havoc among enemies. Dd2 ability malediction Malediction can cause its targets to receive a random DOT effect for each time they are damaged, giving physical attacks additional DOT damage along with extra chance to kill targets with Deathsdoor dd2Death Blow Resistance. Try to combine Dd2 ability malediction Malediction (especially when it is upgraded) with any skills that can inflict DOT, especiallyPortraits-plaguedoctorPlague Doctor's Dd2 ability causeofdeath Cause of Death, which forces all DOT amounts on an enemy to trigger at once, potentially causing massive damage.
  • Dd2 ability anamnesis Anamnesis can be combined with thePortraits-runawayRunaway's Dd2 ability firestarter Firestarter to apply both Bleed dd2Bleed and Burn dd2Burn on all enemies at the same time. These skills can also be an excellent setup for Dd2 ability causeofdeath Cause of Death, due to a huge amount of DOT they can inflict.
  • Occultist burning star

    Due to its great damage ouput, Dd2 ability theburningstars The Burning Stars is best used on durable large-sized enemies or bosses

    Dd2 ability theburningstars The Burning Stars is the most dangerous skill in the Occultist's arsenal. It can bypass Dd2 token blockBlock to deal a huge amount of damage to a single target and apply Dd2 token comboCombo on it for stronger follow-up attacks if it manages to survive.
  • Dd2 ability abyssalartillery Abyssal Artillery also yields powerful effects with Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power, capable of inflicting Stun dd2Stun on 2 back-Rank enemies at the same time. Dd2 ability daemonspull Daemon's Pull can stun in a similar way, while also dragging a back-Rank target to the front and clear corpses, exposing it to front-liners with limited reach, especiallyPortraits-leperLeper.

Separator

🔸Survivability: The Occultist himself is fairly fragile due to his low Icon HP dd2HP and complete lack of defensive skills, save for his rather unreliable Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction.

  • He can be a common target of enemies, who tend to attack Heroes with the lowest Icon HP dd2HP. As such, it is advised to have the Occultist protected by Heroes who have higher durability, self-sustainability or Dd2 token tauntTaunt effect to divert enemies' focus from him (Portraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms,Portraits-leperLeper, Portraits-hellionHellion, etc.).
  • His usage of Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power Tokens, which has a chance to Burn dd2Burn him, adds to his fragility. If not utilized carefully, said Token can apply more and more Burn dd2Burn damage on him over time. This can be especially dangerous when the Occultist is near or on Deathsdoor dd2Death's Door. Note that Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power ignores Occultist's Burn dd2Burn Resistance, so increasing it via buffs or trinkets will not protect him from Burn dd2Burn outside of enemy attacks.

Separator

🔸Support: The Occultist can take a supporting role in any Rank by using Dd2 ability weakeningcurse Weakening Curse and Dd2 ability vulnerabilityhex Vulnerability Hex to decrease enemies' damage and increase their susceptibility to damage, respectively. While the healing role can be assigned the Occultist, his Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction skill is highly risky to use.

  • Dd2 ability weakeningcurse Weakening Curse can apply Dd2 token comboCombo on targets, which can enhance other Heroes' skill such asPortraits-manatarmsMan-at-Arms's Dd2 ability rampart Rampart (Stun dd2Stun) orPortraits-jesterJester'sDd2 ability finale Finale (double damage).
  • Dd2 ability vulnerabilityhex Vulnerability Hex works well against typical Dd2 token dodgeDodge users, such as Evangelist, Cherub, etc.
  • Occultist healing Leper

    The effectiveness of Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction typically revolves aroung luck

    Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction is one of the very few skills that can be used to heal allies. However, it can be far less reliable than thePortraits-plaguedoctorPlague Doctor's Dd2 ability battlefieldmedicine Battlefield Medicine and Dd2 ability indiscriminatescience Indiscriminate Science, which offer much more stable healing. Because of its large gap in healing values, Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction may heal for a lot or nothing at all, making it extremely unpredictable and unreliable. Even worse, it may apply a Bleed dd2Bleed, potentially killing the Occultist and other Heroes if they are on Deathsdoor dd2Death's Door. Nevertheless, this skill can still be considered a powerful healing skill, as long as players are willing to push their luck. The Occultist can use 2 Dd2 token uncheckedpowerUnchecked Power Tokens for a guaranteed critical heal from Dd2 ability wyrdreconstruction Wyrd Reconstruction, thus somewhat mitigating the skill's drawback. Certain Heroes that benefit from taking damage (Portraits-leperLeper and Portraits-hellionHellion) can take advantage of the Bleed dd2Bleed effect.Portraits-leperLeper, who has very low Bleed dd2Bleed Resistance, can take damage from the Bleed dd2Bleed to boost his damage after he uses Dd2 ability ruin Ruin while Portraits-hellionHellion deals more damage the lower her Icon HP dd2HP gets.

Trivia[ | ]

  • The Occultist 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 Occultist is one of the very few Heroes that can apply all 3 DOT effects (Bleed dd2Bleed, Blight dd2Blight, and Burn dd2Burn) by themselves.
  • Similar to the first Darkest Dungeon, the Occultist's default name is "Alhazred", a reference to the author of the fictional book, Necronomicon, mentioned in "Call of Cthulhu" written by H.P. Lovecraft. The author is stated to be "the mad Arab Abdul Alhazred".
