Darkest Dungeon is a famously difficult game, and may chase away potential players with these seemingly unsurmountable hurdles of getting started.
I found a few key reddit posts, and other stray tips that were shared with anyone looking to improve their overall game. I asked their permission, and attempted to synthesize that wealth of knowledge into a single package that could hopefully benefit players of any skill level!

It's simply a game I love. And with the upcoming sequel, and constant sales and deals on the original game to encourage new players, I wanted to do my part to share I game I truly love!

Darkest Dungeon - Crimson Court DLC: The Crimson Curse Explained!

Welcome to Rantry's playthough of the Darkest Dungeon DLC, The Crimson Court!

Playlist:

In this episode we try out the new class, The Flagellant!
The Crimson Court is the first DLC in Darkest Dungeon. It is was released on June 19th of 2017 for PC, MAC, Linux. The release for PS4 and VITA have not yet been announced.

The features announced before it's release included:

A parallel campaign taking place during the main quest which sheds light on The Ancestor's early days, including new cutscenes.
The Flagellant, a new Hero class, who is a frontline healer that can apply strong buffs but also takes debuffs when buffing. Additionally, he cannot become virtuous, and only receive one unique affliction, Rapturous. “Awash in blood and delusion, he bears the burden of a thousand lifetimes.”
A new location known as The Courtyard, which will include new curios, traps, obstacles, and a complete faction of blood-crazed foes.
Massive, sprawling maps with locked doors, prisoner rooms, and progress saves.
New enemies found in the other regions.
Heroes can be afflicted with something known as the Crimson Curse, which turns one of your heroes into a Vampire.
4 new, unique Courtyard Bosses with some of the most complex and devious mechanics yet.
A new wandering boss known as The Fanatic, a vampire hunter-esque madman who will hunt down any of your heroes bearing the curse.
Districts: New prestige buildings that offer permanent, estate-wide bonuses
Lore-driven trinket sets for all heroes – with set bonuses!

Darkest Dungeon - New Players' Guide - Tips for Absolute Beginners! [No Spoilers]

Welcome to the absolute beginners' guide for Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court! While it's ideal for complete newbies, this guide is suitable for anyone who's having trouble beating the game.

Full disclosure: I have played very little of the Crimson Court so far, and apparently my assessment of the Flagellant was a little off - turns out he's pretty OP right now, so he's probably worth taking even for a new player.

Note that I've deliberately tried to stay away from discussing specific strategies. Instead I give a broader overview of how to make decisions within the game, because I feel that's more important for beginners.

Please try to keep the comment section relatively spoiler-free!

The Guardian Guardian is ridiculously easy if you have the shield breaker dlc. Three of them and a vestal for regular dungeon heals makes this boss almost pointless.
