Darkest Dungeon 2 A Leader Of Men Guide

In the battle the general has three main abilities but you want to ignore the first one, Attack. The goal of this mission is to fail by reaching maximum sanity, so that your character goes insane. This is to represent what happened on the battlefield. To do this, you simply need to survive. Start off with Inspire to move your character further down the line and mix up your allies as well as stunning them. When the option appears to do “I Don’t Know” use that to basically skip a turn.

Every time one of your allies dies, you lose some sanity, so you want them to die as quickly as possible. You can also use Strategic Retreat and select an ally, they will become Vulnerable, taking 50% more damage. Use this when you can. This will allow your allies to die faster so that you can fill up your sanity meter quicker.

That should be everything you need to know to complete the Leader of Men Chapter 2 fight. Be sure to check out our guide on the next chapter for Ghosts of the Past.
