Jester Guide - Darkest Dungeon

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

Combat is a power ballad - a slow build up, and a grand finale! On the offense, the Jester leaps to and fro in a bloody cacophony, positioning himself for a glorious end in the front ranks!

Alternatively, he can hang back, delivering chilling melodies and unsettling riffs that terrorize his foes, and give strength to his allies.

Tips

At first glance, the jester looks like a support hero, but his offensive abilities are actually quite powerful when enemies are vulnerable to bleeding.

He can deal a lot of damage in the Courtyard, the Weald and the Warrens!

Inspiring Tune helps save gold by avoiding sending too many stressed heroes to the abbey and the tavern.

Finale

Finale

(150% damage | 9% crit)

It is very difficult to use, since it brings penalties to the jester for the rest of the fight (-25 dodge, -3 speed and +100% stress). It must also be used at the front and moves him completely to the back, which is not easy to manage for the rest of the group.
