The Rightful Heiress


Disgusted by the line of suitors claiming to be an improvement to her station in life, the Heiress returned to the cursed family estate with a fire for battle despite her own inexperience. Fortified by wine, she seeks to wade into the nightmare despite the hopelessness of the undertaking.


Heiress is a more offensive version of The Rightful Heir, boasting decent damage and mark proficiency, with few support abilities, while still having a signature ability of heir to collect and store more heirlooms while in a dungeon. Heirloom bonuses increase with the amount of heiresses in the party, and does not conflict with heir's ability, if you run both of them in same party.

To cause that much blood loss, he must have been happy to see her. :P Otherwise, it's only a minor bleed.

Also, most of the time, pets negate their food consumption as an extra stat, so there is almost no point in getting pet food 80% of the time.

I think the Pet Food is not specific to the pets, it is a general use for food reduction. Though I could be wrong there.

Considering it's a activate respite on any attack, that's a lot of uses. Especially with other mods, X2 food consumption is a pretty good deal. There are also some diseases and Traits that -100% food consumption. And while yes it is hard to get them, point being, there are solutions to it beyond pet food.

And the -10 ACC can be fixed with both trinkets and buffs, so that's not really a problem.

Overall, this makes the Heiress extremely good when mixed up with hard hitting members like the highwayman and the crusader. Not to forget the Musketeer or the Bounty hunter.

When using the Heiress, it's all about the team she is with. On her own, yeah -10acc is kinda harsh, but realistically, in darkest dungeon, when does anything of good value NOT come at a brutal cost.

Yes, i know that, but this pets aren't part of "Pets to trinkets" mod, so trinkets from this mod can't reduce food penalty, and even pets mod trinkets feature from 20 to 50 food penalty, unlike this pets.
