Build #____ (The Color of Madness)[edit | edit source]

Designer's Notes:[edit | edit source]

Darkest Dungeon started out as an Early Access game with frequent updates, but has since gone on to have a number of free updates throughout its life as a “Finished Game.” We are pleased to announce that we are deploying a large balance update to the core game on Tuesday June 19th, to coincide with release of the new Color of Madness DLC.

Over the last couple months, we’ve taken a comprehensive look through all classes in the game since it had been some time since we previously did so. Related to that, we also wanted to assess combat as a whole and see if there were any general balance adjustments we could make to improve the game.

In making these changes, we consulted extensively with members of the Darkest Dungeon player community, and ultimately went through over three complete rounds of changes, complete with playtesting and fierce debates. Special thanks to Marvin Seo and Clair de Lune for their assistance with this update, in particular with class and trinket adjustments. They were the source of many ideas, and also provided endless enthusiasm for stress testing (har har) the changes themselves.

Clair was also instrumental in compiling the final changelist, by referencing things against the live game. Thanks for saving me some work!

It’s the nature of the beast that not all changes will be loved by all players. We know that, on occasion, something you love might be altered in a way you don’t like

The working philosophy for this giant balance update was that we wanted to shore up *weak* classes/skills/trinkets more than we wanted to nerf strong ones. Yes, there are some nerfs, but I think you’ll find that those changes are much less frequent than buffs. Where possible, we tried to correct dominant strategies by providing alternatives that are similarly exciting.

We are pleased to roll these changes out and hope that each of you find the majority of them to be exciting and welcome!

THE MUSKETEER!

First, a bonus! As many of you know, we created a Musketeer class (a mirror skin of Arbalest), and this class was a Kickstarter exclusive for two years. We’ve decided to now release the Musketeer for free to all owners of the game. It’s a “FreeLC”, meaning you just have to download the DLC and add it to the game.

On Steam, you can get it here starting June 19th:

Thank you for your support of Darkest Dungeon!

Ok, now on to the changes:

Top Level Overview:[edit | edit source]

Below are the line-by-line changes to each class and trinket, but I wanted to cover the broad strokes first:

Classes:

Every class’ combat and camping skills have been examined and refined, looking for weak or questionable skills or correcting some balance issues. It’s important to us that each class has a role or roles that make them useful. Our goal is never to make each class equally useful in each situation. As long as there is a moment in the game where you think “I really want a <classname> for this”, that’s a win in our eyes.

“Critsmas” Critical hits are an exciting part of the game. However, many crit values and buffs were, mathematically speaking (“Expected Value”), not as useful as many straight dmg buffs.

So, we went through and increased a lot of hero crits, crit buffs, and crit trinkets to narrow this gap. A crit strategy is always going to be spikier in terms of variance than a straight dmg strategy, but the point is we want them both to be quite useful. It’s kind of like the Occultist vs Vestal philosophy of healing!Monsters had crits increase too, but on the whole, heroes benefited much more from this change, ESPECIALLY when you consider….

NEW MECHANIC: Crit Buffs!

This is an all new addition. Now, when your hero lands a critical hit, it will proc a temporary self-buff that is thematically tied to the class! For example, Plague Doctor will get a boost to Blight Chance %, whereas the Vestal will get a boost to heal skills.

Merry Critsmas!

Buff Durations Increased and Buff “Ticking” Moved to End of Round

Buffs ticking at round/turn start means offensive buffs effectively only have 2 rounds of usage whereas defensive buffs have 3. The difference is less important than the fact that many offensive buffs are not worth using compared to just doing a damaging attack. Adding 1 duration to offensive buffs changes the math enough to make them more compelling. Similarly, debuffing enemy ACC or DMG effectively only benefits you for 2 attacks. SPD buffs are unaffected by this, and defensive buffs are affected based on turn order but far less affected than offensive ones.

Changes:

   Buff timers now tick at the end of combatant turns instead of the beginning. Added +1 duration to PERFORMER buffs to account for an immediate decrement after the buff is cast. For a given duration, this means offensive buffs and debuffs now effectively last 1 more turn.

Virtues Can Expire

When a hero becomes Virtued, their stress drops significantly. If their stress manages to climb to a full 200 (filling the meter twice), the Virtue will go away and the hero will find themselves unvirtued, with 0 stress again.

Previously, Virtues couldn’t expire in this way. We wanted to add a small amount of pressure to still manage the stress on that hero even when Virtued. Practically, this should only really affect “Endless Mode” in Color of Madness DLC, but it is possible now that you might lose a Virtue during the course of a quest if you aren’t paying attention to that hero’s stress.

We still intend for Virtues to be a big, exciting moment that can mean the difference between success and failure of a quest.

We also tuned Stalwart and Courageous a bit:

   Stalwart is now focused on survivability. Hero gets a buff to PROT and Deathblow resist.
   Courageous now carries a stress resist buff and a small SPD buff.

“Always Hit” Threshold changed from 90 to 95

This one is deep under the hood, but the current “Always Hit” cutoff of 90% was intended to reduce some of the whiffing early on, but this was before the great ACC Inflation Patch of 2016 or 2017.

Changing this cutoff to 95 means that you are not “guaranteed” a hit unless your resulting Accuracy (ACC – DEF) is 95 instead of 90. This helps ensure that ACC buffs and trinkets are more useful.

Stuns

Stuns can at times break the game and are the source of much of the stalling and abuse meta. Stun Chance and SPD become the best stats in the game to stack for combat as a pure denial tactic.

The Stun recovery buff that is granted to combatants after being stunned once was increased, to further help prevent successive stuns.

Stun %s were reviewed and adjusted on some skills.

Stall Detection Improvements:

Additional logic has been added to try to better detect when players are “stalling” (intentionally keeping weak monsters alive to heal up while they struggle). Darkest Dungeon is a world of constant peril and mortality–toying with monsters is against our philosophy of what an adventurer would do when the threat of death is ever constant. 🙂

Scouting

As a whole, we had to nerf scouting buffs and chances a fair bit, as it was overtuned and allowing players to reliably avoid many encounters. We want scouting to be a great benefit, but not quite as powerful as before.

Monster AI Improvements

Various improvements and bug fixes to monster brains.

Monster Powerscaling:

Smoothed out some powerscaling factors for Veteran and Champion level monsters for more consistency across stat blocks.

   Veteran monsters will now have slightly less HP and DOD, but slightly increased DMG and CRIT.
   Champion monsters will now be slightly weaker across the board.

Full Changelog[edit | edit source]

Changes to the executable and rules[edit | edit source]

   Buffs now tick at the end of turns, not the start – this means a self-buff with a duration of 2 rounds lasts until the end of your next turn, while a 1 round buff will last through the end of your turn. This means, if one hero buffs another’s DMG for 3 rounds, they get the full 3 rounds out of it, rather than having it tick down by 1 at the start of their turn.
   Crits now only heal 3 stress, not 4; this extends to stress heals on allies.
   All heroes and monsters previously had a hidden +10 ACC. That value is now +5; you’ll now need a displayed 95% hit chance to have a guaranteed hit.
   Heroes now trigger an effect on crit – most of these are 2 round self buffs, meaning they effectively last until the end of the hero’s next turn.
   Virtues are no longer permanent – you can now go over 100 Stress when Virtuous, and reaching 200 Stress with a Virtue removes the virtue and resets Stress to zero.
   Recovering from stuns now buffs the target’s Stun Resist by 50%.
   Stalling is now tracked when 2 or fewer enemies remain (up from 1). Size 2 enemies still don’t trigger stalling.
   Stalling is now also defined by whether the player uses too many stalling skills per round (defined under each hero’s section below). The current value is 2, meaning that using 2 stall moves counts as stalling when there are 2 or fewer enemies remaining.
   Some enemies now accelerate stalling, bringing reinforcements rapidly (1 round) if only accelerated stall enemies are left alive.
   AOE moves no longer inherently bypass Stealth; at least one target needs to be visible to be able to use AOE moves.
   Surprise chance is now enumerated in the rules.json; it is impossible to be surprised by a scouted fight and you gain +25% monster surprise chance on such fights. These modifiers are ignored by auto-surprise fights such as Fanatic.
   Heroes may now only have 2 blocks at at time.
   Healing buffs now cap at doubling healing (sum total of Healing Done + Received buffs cannot exceed 100%).
   Stress damage taken now has a minimum of 20%.
   Positive Quirks can now be removed; double click in the Sanitarium.
   Effect chances now roll separately – this means, for example, Uppercut’s Move and Stun components succeed or fail entirely independently of each other. Before a single number was rolled for all effects.
   Control effects (Siren) no longer roll against Debuff Resist; rather, the chance for the effect to work is set in the actual effect file. The only example in the base game is the Siren, whose control effect has a 70% chance now.
   Stealth is now a shader – this means everything can now have the stealth effect!
