Items in Darkest Dungeon consist of Provisions, Loot, and Trinkets.

Loot[edit | edit source]

The various Loot items in Darkest Dungeon are available for pickup after defeating monsters or finding them in curios. These are items of high value which are sold for gold upon returning to the Hamlet. Gems' stack size is increased by 1 with the Geological Studyhall DistrictExclusive to the Color of Madness DLC (excluding Tapestries, both types of Antiques, and Pews).

Heirlooms[edit | edit source]

Heirlooms are a special kind of loot that is used to upgrade buildings in the Town. In addition to gaining heirlooms for finishing a dungeon, additional heirlooms can be collected while exploring.

The Crimson Court DLC adds two new kinds of heirlooms: Blueprints which are used to build Districts, and Invitations which are used to enter the Courtyard.

Here is a short list of what each heirloom upgrades:

Originally in the base game each area had one specific heirloom given as quest rewards. While this is no longer the case for most quests, it is still true for bosses.

  • Ruins: Busts/Crests
  • Weald: Deeds/Crests
  • Warrens: Portraits/Crests
  • Cove: Crest (three times as much in other areas)

Trinkets[edit | edit source]

Trinkets are equippable items that can be found in the dungeons, gained as a quest reward, or bought at the Nomad Wagon. Each hero is able to carry two different trinkets with various effects.

Persistent Provisions[edit | edit source]

These are special types of provisions only available in DLC. Unlike other provisions, they cannot be bought from the Caretaker, and instead must be found in dungeons dropped by special monsters (with the only exception being The Blood, which can be generated from the Sanguine VintnersExclusive to the Crimson Court DLC.) If they are not removed from the inventory when the quest ends, instead of being sold back to the Caretaker, they will be placed in the Caretaker's shop as a free provision, which the player can take at any time up to the number of provisions they have.
