There’s a good chance that you’ll take damage in almost every encounter in Ironmace’s Early Access multiplayer dungeon crawler. This isn’t an easy game, the dungeons are difficult, and there aren’t that many ways of restoring health when you do get hurt. If you’re here, you’re wondering how to heal Dark and Darker.

How to Heal in Dark and Darker

Use Consumables

The most common way to heal in Dark and Darker is to consume healing potions and bandages. There are eight rarities of consumables in the game. Each rarity gives you a better effect. You can purchase these salves and tinctures from an Alchemist and bandages from the Surgeon. Here’s the breakdown of their curative effects:

  • Healing Potions:
    • Cracked (11 HP)
    • Flawed (15 HP)
    • Normal (19 HP)
    • Fine (23 HP)
    • Exquisite (27 HP)
    • Perfect (31 HP)
    • Legendary (42 HP)
    • Unique (50 HP)
  • Bandages:
    • Cracked (8 HP)
    • Flawed (10 HP)
    • Normal (15 HP)
    • Fine (20 HP)
    • Exquisite (25 HP)
    • Perfect (30 HP)
    • Legendary (35 HP)
    • Unique (40 HP)

Use Shrines of Health

If you’re out of restorative consumables, you can regain 100% of your HP by interacting with the Shrine of Health that spawns inside a dungeon.

Use Campfire Kits

Lastly, you can build a campfire to restore some of your lost HP by using Campfire Kit, which can be purchased from a Weaponsmith.

Use Class Abilities to Heal

The most important classes for healing yourself and others in Dark and Darker are the Cleric, Barbarian, Fighter, and Ranger — in that order.

  • Cleric: One of this class’ perks is Kindness, which restores 15% of its own HP while healing another target. To mend others, Cleric can use the Tier 5 spell Holy Light, which heals an ally for 30 HP.
  • Barbarian: The Morale Boost perk restores 10% of the class’ HP after killing an enemy. The Toughness perk also increases its own HP pool by 10%. Finally, the War Cry skill increases the Barbarian’s HP pool and that of his allies by 25%.
  • Fighter: Ths class has two skills that restore HP: Second Wind and Victory Strike. The first one recovers 50% of your HP, while the latter restores 5% if you killed an enemy.
  • Ranger: This is the last class that can heal itself by using the Field Ration skill. In this case, you need to forage food, thus restoring 25 HP.
