    Pretty good stuff but I feel like the game explains next to sod all. Probably best if I spend ages reading some online guide. Like the jester for example, clearly is very different to the other characters but it is not clear how to use him. How about a in game beast guide!?

    Think I'm week12 or 13, I've quit two expeditions but apart from that it's gone pretty well with zero deaths so far. Plenty of mentally ruined adventures though. Got 9 of them to rank 2 and just somehow about the necromancer boss with a rank 0 team. When the winning hit was made my four characters were on 0,1,3&0 health!

    There are certain classes that only really work when they're in certain ranks of the party, and become useless if an enemy shuffles them around. So if your Leper gets shunted to the back row or your Arbalest to the front, you need some way of getting them back where they belong. The Jester (and Grave Robber too) can help with that, in that a couple of their attacks move them forward or back.

    The Jester is also good at causing Bleed, amazing at buffing, and at stress healing. Stress is a really big problem in this game, it's arguably way more serious than physical injuries. Particularly when you start going to longer and harder dungeons.

    Don't research too much, half the fun* of this game is finding out for yourself what is Not A Good Idea. Failure in these games is just a part of your story!

    *your definition of "fun" may differ

    I've been playing this a lot the last week, bought it on release and had a number of attempts.
    This time it's going well, starting on the 3rd tier bosses.
    Really lover the Man at Arm's and Highway Man combo in the front ranks. With riposte and the movement between the two positions im smashing through the regular battles.

    Not sure how much more I'll play. I do enjoy it but it feels like an endless grind unless I'm doing it wrong. I've won pretty much every week, only lost three heroes and yet it feels like almost no progression. Obviously the goal is to defeat the darkest dungeon which is rank 5. So I need maybe ten heroes at 5 rank ish. Feels like I've played this forever and I've only got maybe 7 at rank 3 and another ten at rank 2. Plus that's with almost never failing! I'd understand the loooong grind if I kept losing all my hero's but I'm not.

    Are you doing Veteran and Champion dungeons yet? You should have been forced to do at least Veteran, unless you're playing on Radiant. They might satisfy your wish to die more.
