Description

Resistance - Darkest Dungeon 2: Map Encounters - list - Expeditions - Darkest Dungeon 2 Guide

Resistance

This is where you will fight enemies - but not always. If the heroes have the option to reject the fight, you can use it (sometimes at the expense of Relicts or the Flame). Winning a fight always provides wealth and reduces the Loathing level, giving you a chance to earn Mastery Points.

Assistance - Darkest Dungeon 2: Map Encounters - list - Expeditions - Darkest Dungeon 2 Guide

Assistance

People you meet here will provide you with support in the form of resources, increase the Flame level or give you combat items.

Lair - Darkest Dungeon 2: Map Encounters - list - Expeditions - Darkest Dungeon 2 Guide

Lair

You will find many treasures here, but the fight will not be easy. It is not worth risking your party when you do not know the exact course of the map, the heroes are weakened, or when it is a long way to the end. Also, do not take risks when you are not sure about your party's composition.

Hoarder - Darkest Dungeon 2: Map Encounters - list - Expeditions - Darkest Dungeon 2 Guide

Hospital

A Hospital is often the desired location. There you can heal ailments and negative Quirks of your characters. You can also restore Life for a low price (all payments are made with Relicts).

Watchtower - Darkest Dungeon 2: Map Encounters - list - Expeditions - Darkest Dungeon 2 Guide

Watchtower

The Watchtower reveals the remaining "tiles" with question marks on the map. If it's an endpoint on the map, it's often better to skip it and check out a more interesting road.
