Strategy[ | ]

Portrait progression plaguedoctor

🔸The Plague Doctor is a reliable healer and supportive-damage dealer, with utility, diversity, and usefulness with her skills. The Plague Doctor is capable of dealing a surprisingly massive amount of Blight dd2Blight damage, with some respectable Direct and Bleed dd2Bleed damage. Due to her lack of defensive skills and low-HPIcon HP dd2. The Plague Doctor is best utilized in the back Ranks, where she has access to most of her skills, and avoids harm from the dangerous front Ranks.


  • Dd2 ability noxiousblast Noxious Blast is capable to inflict high Blight Blight dd2 damage to a single front-Rank enemies. The DOT damage ignores Block tokens which makes this skill perfect for dealing with the front-ranks where Dd2 token block Block tends to be.
  • Dd2 ability plaguegrenade Plague Grenade inflicts respectable Blight Blight dd2 damage to the Back-Ranks (3 and 4 positions), enemies in this positions tend to have Low Max Icon HP dd2 so this will quickly mow-down enemies with relative ease.
  • Dd2 ability incision Incision a very reliable attack with average physical damage and high Bleed dd2 bleed, for when Blight Blight dd2 damage is ineffective; Like in the Foetor, where enemies have high Blight dd2RES)
  • Dd2 ability causeofdeath Cause of Death turns most (or all) of the DOT accumulated on a target into instant physical damage. Paired with other DOT heroes ( Examples:Portraits-runawayRunaway, Portraits-occultistOccultist ) Cause of Death is capable to be the most lethal Plague Doctor skill. It ignores Dd2 token strength 2 and Dd2 token critbut also Ignores Dd2 token block from enemies which gives this skill a huge damage potential.
  • Dd2 ability blindinggas Blinding Gas can inflict multiple Dd2 token blind Blind and Dd2 token combo to the back ranks, mitigating the amount of damage your party receives.
  • Dd2 ability ounceofprevention Ounce of Prevention helps the Plague Doctor and her allies withstand All type of DOTS Bleed dd2, Blight dd2, Burn dd2 while also buffing Disease dd2 RES, perfect for heavy dot and disease dot encounters like The Creature Den and The Foetor. It is a good idea to equip this skill when you are going to face those enemies.
  • Dd2 ability battlefieldmedicine Battlefield Medicine can be used to heal allies that are on low Icon HP dd2HP, Deathsdoor dd2Death's Door or are suffering from DOTS Bleed dd2, Blight dd2, Burn dd2 effects. When upgraded it will heal the DOTs from Plague Doctor as well. However, this skill will not be reliable for drawn-out battles, especially boss battles, due to its limited use (3 for each battle).
  • Dd2 ability indiscriminatescience Indiscriminate Science does not have a limit on use and offers a much greater healing potential at the expense of losing Positive and Negative Tokens. To get a solid heal, the skill should be used on Heroes that hold or can apply a large number of Positive Tokens on themselves.( Example:Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman , Portraits-graverobberGraverobber )
  • Dd2 ability disorientingblast Disorienting Blast can displace a back-Rank target, bring it to a more vulnerable position or Shuffle a front - Rank target where is less effective. The skill also applies Dd2 token daze Daze so that other Heroes can gain the upper hand. If the enemy already has Dd2 token daze Daze or Dd2 token comboCombo the skill will Dd2 token stun instead.
  • Dd2 ability emboldeningvapours Emboldening Vapours applies Dd2 token strength 2 Strength and Dd2 token speed Speed on allies, consider pair it with heroes that benefits the most Example:Portraits-highwaymanHighwayman,Portraits-leperLeper)
  • Dd2 ability magnesiumrain Magnesium Rain can quickly remove Dd2 token dodge Dodge from enemies and clear Corpses allowing her team to deal with out-of-reach threats. Due to its mechanic of clearing all Corpses at same time, is particularly helpful against Plague Eaters in Foetor region or Creature Den monsters, as these enemies can consume their allies' corpses to gain huge advantages for themselves, such as healing and access to dangerous skills.
