10 best tips for playing Darkest Dungeon: The Crimson Court


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!

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

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


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.

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: The Color of Madness - An Overview

Today I thought we'd take a quick look at the latest DLC for Darkest Dungeon - The Color of Madness. It adds a new region to explore, over a dozen new enemies to fight, and numerous new secrets to discover!

Is it worth picking up? Well, that's debatable - so let's spend some time getting a good idea of what the new DLC has to offer!

While I did back the original crowdfunding campaign, I'm not otherwise affiliated with Darkest Dungeon or Red Hook Studios in any way. I just love talking about turn-based strategy games, especially ones with great atmosphere and art design!
