How To Cure Stress In Darkest Dungeon 2
Stress is hard to heal because only a couple of skills can help. Your first options are the Plague Doctor and the Man-At-Arms. If you use your first point to upgrade the Plague Doctor’s Ounce Of Prevention skill then it will take away one stress every few turns. It does have a cool down, so you can’t spam it, but it always works.
The Man-At-Arms also has one if you upgrade the skill Bolster. This one can be used more often but only has a 50% chance of removing stress from anyone. When you get a few extra point you should pick this one up, but I’d start with the Plague Doctor to make it easier on yourself. You’ll need the Man-At-Arms protecting and attacking.
- Get a Mastery Point
- Upgrade Man-at-Arms or Plague Doctor
- Upgrade skill Ounce Of Prevention
- Upgrade skill Bolster
- Use these in combat to cure stress
- Use items at the Inn to help heal as well
You should also be using and buying stress heals at the inn. You aren’t bringing any of these items out with you, use them if you have them. Just watch out for the side effects, the dart board likes to break people wrists.
