Darkest Dungeon 2 Jester Build Guide- A Master of Bleed and Damage

Published by

“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.” – Guild

The Jester in the Darkest Dungeon 2 is an eccentric hero who is difficult to control but his output and teamwork are worth mastering. There are so many new players in the Darkest Dungeon 2 and every character has its own abilities. The Jester can cause consistent bleed on the middle two ranks as well as buffing and destressing his team with his ballads. Let’s move to the Darkest Dungeon 2 Jester Best Builds.

Skills of Jester in Darkest Dungeon 2

  • Finale
  • Solo
  • Razor’s Wit
  • Fade To Black
  • Inspiring Tune

The high-risk, high-reward maneuver of going forward with Solo and then all the way back with Finale is too good to resist. The Jester can give himself buffs to speed up and dodge chance to counteract the hazards. The damage with the combo is one of the most extreme bursts in the game.

When the danger is too great, Razor’s Wit and Fade To Black have less damage but only move forward and back one space for the sake of safety. Finally, when the skill has been upgraded, Inspiring Tune knocks off three stress stacks from any ally. As the Jester’s Resolve level rises these strengths only increase, with his DODGE reaching a whopping 35, his Speed going to a strong 9 but his HP only going up to a measly 35 so even less than the Plague Doctor. What this means is that the Jester is most comfortably embedded in the middle of your formation, relying on his Dodge to remain unscathed.

Encore is that the Jester himself gains a stack of both Daze and Weakness, reducing his own effectiveness on his next turn. Suggested Trinkets: Bloody Dice (+30% Bleed Skill Chance, -10% Bleed Resist) and the Critical Dice (+7% Crit). Boosts to melee damage and critical hit rate are ideal, as are randomly-gained stacks of Strength. You can also increase the Jester’s Debuff Resistance.

The Best Jester Skills | Darkest Dungeon 2

Razor’s Wit and/or Fade to Black – These two abilities, once upgraded, also add a combo token to your target.
Harvest – This is another great option since you can hit two foes. Unfortunately, combo tokens only have a 33% chance of popping up.
Finale – This is basically your nuke. If a target already has a combo token, then watch this deal a ton of damage.
Encore – If you need a teammate to attack twice in a single round, then this skill is a must.
Inspiring Tune – This is fairly okay to remove Stress and the horror token, though other characters have cleansing mechanics, too.

That’s all for the Darkest Dungeon 2 Jester guide to help you unlock the best skills and complete the Shrine battles.
