how to heal in dark and darker
by Samuel James in

Welcome to the Dark and Darker healing guide. If you’ve just encountered a troublesome skeleton in a dungeon, or narrowly escaped death by another player and are now in desperate need of HP recovery, we’ve got you covered. This guide will explore several ways to regain your HP and get you back on track.

How to heal using consumables

One effective method to heal yourself in the dungeon is using consumables such as healing potions and bandages. This is especially important if you’re a solo player using a non-healer class. To purchase these HP recovery items, head to the lobby and click on the Merchants tab. Here, you can find various healing items sold by the Surgeon and Alchemist.

How to heal using your abilities and skills

Learning to use your character’s healing skills effectively can be a game-changer in the Dark and Darker dungeons. Certain classes have access to unique healing abilities that can be used to heal themselves or their teammates. This guide will provide an overview of all the Dark and Darker healing skills, including Perks, Skills, and Spells. It’s important to note that we’ll only be covering permanent HP recovery skills, and not temporary HP boosts like the Barbarian’s War Cry Skill.

How to heal using a campfire

Incorporating a Campfire into your healing strategy can be a real life saver. Not only does resting near a Campfire restore a portion of your health, but it also provides a convenient solution for all your healing needs. To acquire a Campfire, head over to the Woodsman merchant and purchase one for 24 Gold. Once you have it, equip the Campfire in your utility item slot and place it down before taking a seat. Remember that allies can also use the Campfire, so act fast, as it only lasts a short time before vanishing.

How to heal using a shrine

Nothing beats the restorative powers of a Shrine of Health in the Dark and Darker dungeons. These stone statues depict a lady holding a glowing orb and offer a complete HP recovery for a single player. However, be aware that Shrines of Health have an extensive cooldown and can only be used by one player at a time. If you’re playing with a team, it’s best to prioritize players with lower HP bars. You can find several Shrines of Health on each map, so keep an eye out for them.
