Grave Robber Guide - Darkest Dungeon

Build suggestions and tips for using the Darkest Dungeon grave robber, as well as a list of her combat skills with comments.

The Grave Robber is a versatile and nimble combatant, moving back and forth through the ranks with ease. She strikes without warning and retreats to the shadows, continuing her assault at range.

If her throwing daggers and poison darts aren’t getting the job done, she can return to the melee, buffed and slinging her pickaxe!

Tips

The grave robber is a very versatile hero who can work well in the majority of groups.

She’s pretty good in mark groups or in groups that focus on blight. Although it’s less her strength, she can also support heroes with bleeding skills.

It is not mandatory but she can also be very agile, using her skills that move forward or backward.

She is particularly evasive once her dodge buff is applied.

A good build

  • Pick to the Face
  • Flashing Daggers
  • Poison Dart
  • Toxin Trickery

Allows you to attack all ranks, pierce armor and become very evasive.

An alternative

  • Lunge
  • Shadow Fade
  • Pick to the Face
  • Thrown Dagger

Allows you to attack all ranks, pierce armor and use the very powerful Lunge skill.

Make sure, however, that the rest of the group is able to work with being moved around because with its two-row advance, Lunge will break your party composition.
