Hero Paths are a critical component of Darkest Dungeon 2. All heroes have a variety of skills that are useful but Hero Paths give the character a massive bonus to their favorite skills, usually at the cost of a penalty to stats or skills the gamer isn’t interested in.
Specializing a hero like this is what gives a hero its raw power. A generic character in Darkest Dungeon 2 can do alright, but when focusing on a specific role, the hero then becomes invaluable. Unlocking a Hero Path will make beating the game’s toughest Confessions much more realistic.
Unlocking & Selecting A Hero Path
- Start a new run.
- Get to the Altar of Hope.
- Enter The Living City.
- Spend Candles of Hope on a Hero until unlocking their desired Hero Path.
- Progress to the Crossroads.
- Select the unlocked Hero Path.
Candles of Hope are the currency to make everything better between runs. Whether it’s unlocking more items to upgrade the stagecoach with or putting more food at the Inn, the Altar of Hope can take the Candles of Hope and turn them into a myriad of upgrades.
While there are many good choices that will make the runs more successful, consider starting with The Living City and choosing Hero Paths to unlock. The best build for the Plague Doctor or any other character will no doubt utilize a Hero Path that amplifies their strengths.
Each standard hero has three Hero Paths to unlock. To choose between them, progress past the Altar of Hope and to the Crossroads. There, players can select not only their favorite heroes in the game but which Hero Path they’d like to use for those heroes.
With a strong party that makes wise decisions about Hero Paths, the game because much simpler. Characters will have a role to play and excel in those situations. After getting four characters that work well together, no path on the map becomes dangerous enough to forbid. In fact, some of the most lethal paths can help players unlock Mastery Points or more Candles of Hope.
