Stained items are a type of trinket in Darkest Dungeon 2 that can be used to unlock the potential of Cultist Trinkets. There are nine different Stained items, each with a different effect.
To get Stained items, you can:
- Find them as loot: Stained items can be found as loot in the Hamlet, in the Curios you interact with on your journey, or as rewards for completing quests.
- Purchase them from merchants: Some merchants will sell Stained items.
- Craft them: You can craft Stained items at the Altar of Hope.
Once you have a Stained item, you can equip it to a hero. When you do, any Cultist Trinkets that the hero is also wearing will be activated. Cultist Trinkets offer powerful bonuses, but they also come with a cost. The Stained item will offset this cost, making the Cultist Trinket more powerful.
For example, the Stained Stun Resist trinket gives a hero +25% Stun Resist, but if the hero is stunned, they will miss their turn and take 50% more damage. The Stained Stun Resist trinket offsets this cost by making the hero immune to the Stun Debuff.
Stained items are a powerful tool that can be used to make your heroes even more powerful. However, they should be used with caution, as the costs associated with Cultist Trinkets can be high.
