Grave Robber in Darkest Dungeon

A guide to using the Grave Robber class in Darkest Dungeon

The Grave Robber is a highly mobile class that combines swift melee dagger attacks with ranged dagger throwing. Generally used as a damage dealer, this class can be played differently depending on the skill combination. The Grave Robber can move on the battlefield without passing the turn, making any position on the battlefield suitable for her, although the second and third positions from the right are the most preferable.

If you prefer a more stationary character, you can use abilities such as Pick to the Face, Flashing Daggers, and Thrown Dagger to attack all targets on the battlefield. Both dagger abilities can deal massive damage due to their high critical hit chance. However, the Grave Robber is much more effective as a mobile class. Pairing her with other mobile classes such as the Jester, Highwayman, and Crusader can significantly boost her effectiveness within a party.

The Grave Robber boasts high speed, critical hit chance, and dodge value. However, her health points and resistance (aside from resistance to Blight) are quite low.

Tips:

Use the Grave Robber only in a party where members don\’t have to keep their positions, as her attacks can disable other members for a turn.

Use Lunge and Shadow Fade to stay mobile on the battlefield.
