Gamepedia and Fandom have joined forces and our combined teams would like to encourage all Darkest Dungeon fans to unite work together. Please head to the community portal to discuss whether this wiki should merge with Fandom's Darkest Dungeon community.
Heart attacks are guaranteed to occur if your hero reaches the maximum value of 200 on their Stress Bar while Afflicted. Heart attacks immediately drop a hero's Health down to 0, placing that hero on Death's Door and reduce their stress to 170. If they are already at 0 health when the heart attack occurs, the heart attack will kill the hero instead, disregarding Death Blow resistance. If your hero is currently Virtuous, they will not suffer a Heart attack, and instead lose the Virtue and reset to 0 Stress.
If a hero is brought back from Death's Door after suffering a heart attack, in addition to the Death's Door Recovery debuff, they will receive a Heart Attack debuff for the rest of the quest:
Heart attacks are similarly lethal, and are the end point of a Stress-focused team. Virtuous Heroes in this game mode will experience heart attacks normally like non-Virtuous ones, but will never lose their Virtue at 200 Stress.
