Death's Door

From Darkest Dungeon Wiki

This article is a stub. You can help Darkest Dungeon Wiki by expanding it.

When a hero is reduced to 0 HP, they fall into Death's Door.

While in this state, they will suffer severe stat penalties, plus the hero has to pass a Death Blow resistance test if he/she takes any further damage. The unmodified base chance of dying from further damage is 33% (due to 67% basic Death Blow resist without any special quirks or trinkets). Failing this resistance test results in Death.

Death Blow resistance is capped at a maximum of 87%. For example, even if a hero has bonuses (from trinkets or quirks) that give an additional 30% Death Blow resistance which would give an expected resist of 97% (67% + 30%), it would instead still be capped at 87%.

A hero will no longer be at Death's Door if they receive at least 1 HP of healing (so that they are no longer at 0 HP). Once healed above 0 HP, the severe Death's Door stat penalties will be removed, but they will still suffer from (less severe) Death's Door Recovery penalties; these penalties typically last until the quest is over, or by applying certain Camping Skills that can remove Mortality Debuffs.
