A sister of battle. Pious and unrelenting.

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

Like the Leper, Crusader, and the Flagellant, she will not embark on missions if an 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.

~ Survivalist

Camping skills are special skills heroes can use while they are camping. They take a certain number of "respite" points to use, and can only be used once per camp (unless the skill says otherwise). Most heroes have three shared camping skills and all heroes have 4 unique camping skills (With the Flagellant being the exception having only unique camping skills). Only 4 of these can be equipped at one time. Any Buffs or lasting effects given from a camping skill lasts for 4 battles.

The Vestal is an ecclesiastical and evangelistic woman, spending her camping time comforting her allies with her religion. She sing hymns, chants and prays for her companions by the power of the Light. While effective on all heroes, those who are also religious or who have nearly experienced death will receive the most benefit and comfort from her pious rituals.

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!

~ Blacksmith

Unlike other games, equipment upgrades in Darkest Dungeon are linear, all bought at the Blacksmith.

  • I cannot trust you!

Refuses to Perform Camping Skill[edit | edit source]

  • 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."
  • While most characters have seven trinkets, The Crusader, Highwayman, Plague Doctor and Vestal all have the most at eight. The Vestal is also the only character to have two rare trinkets
  • The fifth level weapon has the same name as one of her attacks - "Hand of Light".
