Ordained enemies are marked with the symbol of the Iron Crown.

Enemies in Darkest Dungeon II may be Ordained, granting them various buffs depending on the Confession.

During each run, the probability that an enemy will be Ordained increases with each Region the party traverses. Later Confessions also increase the probability of Ordainment. Lair bosses and Act bosses will never be Ordained; however, mini-bosses like Death, the Shambler, and Cultist mini-bosses may be, potentially making the encounter much more difficult than usual.

Notes[ | ]

  • The Valley, The Sluice, and The Mountain do not count as proper regions for the purposes of calculating Ordainment chance. Rather, they seem to use the numbers corresponding to the prior region.
  • Ordainment buffs generally reflect characteristics of the Confession boss—e.g. enemies ordained by the Seething Sigh apply Burn dd2 Burn, whilst enemies ordained by the Ravenous Reach apply Bleed dd2 Bleed.
