Darkest Dungeon 2 Night Cap Guide

Alright when you start this mission you will be yelled at. The object is clear, poison his drink cart when he isn’t looking. After he yells, move to the back of the room and wait for the buff on the cart to leave. If you get a chance, lower your stress, but if the option is open to poison his drink do that instead.

I think it takes 5-6 sips of his poison drink to die, but you need to poison the cup twice. If you see the orange buff under him that gives him more stress damage, placate him to remove it. This only worked once for me, but it was enough to avoid that extra stress damage.

  • Start them mission
  • Back away from the enemy
  • Heal stress and wait for opening
  • When the cart loses its buff use your poison
  • Heal your stress and wait
  • Placate if needed, but focus on healing stress
  • Wait for the cart to lose the buff and poison him again

Now you play the waiting game. After he berates you some more his guard will lower and you will get the shot to poison his drink again. After you do it a second time, heal your stress and wait. He will literally drink himself to death and you will win the fight and the mission.

We also have a guide on what Dark Impulse is used for here and a guide for the Man At Arms mission as well.
