Darkest Dungeon 2: Best Grave Robber Build
Players that are underwhelmed by the Grave Robber in Darkest Dungeon 2 at first can be forgiven. The character’s skills are a cut beneath fellow damage dealers, especially the Highwayman. The character also incentives to move around the battlefield which can ruin the positioning fight for her teammates.
But Darkest Dungeon 2 disguises this hero who has a higher damage cap than most any other. Her abilities grow in strength and specialization when she selects a path, unlike other characters. Further, with the right build, she can be almost impossible to hit while she’s dishing out lethal blows.
- Dead Of Night
- Shadow Fade
- Thrown Dagger
The Grave Robber is at her best when she’s dishing out damage from stealth. Lunge and Pirouette deal massive amounts of damage to two targets. Lunge will move the Grave Robber Forward but Porouette and Shadow Fade will return the hero to the safety of the back lines.
These abilities either stack up the Stealth counts or deal extra damage while stealthed. With a good rotation, no opponent will ever be able to directly target the Grave Robber. As Ordainment becomes more frequent, the character’s immunity to these direct blows becomes invaluable.
A different build for the Grave Robber might stick with the default Wanderer path, but this leaves the Grave Robber a step behind her squad. Venomdrop’s sacrifice of speed and damage for damage over time rarely pays off. Deadeye increases ranged skill damage but punishes melee skill damage and resistances and the damage still doesn’t approach what the Nightsworn is capable of.
An extra 50% damage in exchange for maximum health is a trade that this permanently cloaked character should make immediately. To be one of the best heroes in the game means taking the Nightsworn path.
- Indelible Gilded Mind
- Indelible Sharpness Charm
Gamers will likely have somebody that can deal with status effects on the crew. But outside of a fantastic Man-At-Arms build, stress is going to remain an issue, especially for this Grave Robber build that can only be hit by moves that attack in an area. Indelible Gilded Mind gives some important resistance to stress.
The Indelible Sharpness Charm is a fairly simple trinket that gives a flat increase in damage. The Grave Robber can nearly single-handedly be responsible for damage duties. With a trinket like this or another similar one, she gets over the top.
One of the worst things that can happen to a Grave Robber is to lose their Stealth. Sometimes an enemy will have a skill that strips the buff away. This not only makes the character vulnerable but negatively impacts the damage that the Grave Robber is capable of.
Upgraded skills will help stay in stealth but opponents are unpredictable. Instead of accepting this issue offensively and defensively, keep around some Shimmering Power to add two stacks of the Stealth buff.
