The final dungeon in the game, filled with eldritch, beast and unholy enemies. This area and the map layouts are completely scripted and in order to complete the game you must finish four quests, as follows: Kill 1 Shuffling Horror, Activate 3 Iron Crowns, Activate 1 Locus Beacon, and Kill 1 Heart of Darkness. You can only enter the Darkest Dungeon with a party of Lv. 6 characters, and if you do, you cannot abandon the quest without losing one of your party members (unless you only have one left, in which case they will survive), so be prepared before entering. Along with this, characters who enter the Darkest Dungeon will never be able to return to do a quest there, as marked by a torch in the Hero Roster. Marked heroes do not occupy a slot in the roster so you do not need to dismiss them if you want to have them available for other quests.

Due to the map layouts being scripted, you’ll never need shovels and keys. Antivenom and bandages are useful due to the fact that bleed and blight is common in the area. Torches and food is also highly recommended to buy as the quests can really take a toll on your party. There will be no traps or nighttime ambushes and hunger checks are rare. If you complete a quest, all the heroes in your roster will be removed of all stress. Once you complete this dungeon’s last quest, you will finish the game and have the option of starting NG+.
