A sister of battle. Pious and unrelenting.

The Vestal is one of the playable Characters in Darkest Dungeon.

Like the Leper and the Crusader, she will not embark on missions if Abomination is part of the party.

Description[edit | edit source]

The warrior nun channels her zeal for battle into healing abilities, holy judgements and dazzling explosions of light. A strong backbone to any party, the Vestal can also hold her own on the front line with a powerful mace bash and close-quarters condemnations.

Camping Skills[edit | edit source]

Prayers, chants, and blessings bring peace and solace to the Vestal and her party. She can improve a companion's combat prowess, or instead focus on reducing the group's stress, and making the campsite a safe place for a good night's rest.

Equipment[edit | edit source]

Blessed plate mail encases the Vestal as she delivers terrible violence and healing comfort in equal measure. A mace in one hand, and holy book in the other - a study in contrast and all the more effective for it!

Customisation[edit | edit source]

As for every hero, the Vestal has four different colour palettes to choose from: brown, red, green and white.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Both the Vestal's and Man-at-Arms' weapon are called "Mace," despite both the artwork and stats of the weapons being entirely different.

The Vestal's quote on applying a virtuous buff while Focused, "What grace has given me, let it pass to you, hero", is a reference to a similar quote from Arwen Undómiel of The Lord of the Rings: "What grace is given me, let it pass to him. Let him be spared. Save him."
