The Jester has one of the most difficult battle sequences for their hero story in Darkest Dungeon 2. The Jester Chapter 2 fight throws you into combat with the goal of winning a duel, but it provides you with no other clues on how to do so. Your enemy is a skilled Violinist who dishes out impressively deadly musical attacks. If you’re struggling to complete this chapter, our guide below tells you how to defeat the Violinist.

Music of the Night: How to Beat the Jester Chapter 2

The Jester’s Chapter 2 Hero Story is titled Music of the Night, and it pits you against a Violinist who begins combat with a Verse attack. The essence of this chapter is to follow song structure when selecting your attacks, beating the Violinist with a standing ovation worthy finale at the end. Here’s what should go after each Violinist attack.

  • Verse: Use the Chorus attack
  • Break: Use the Bridge attack
  • Missteps: Only choice for attack is Solo
  • Chorus: Use the Verse attack
  • Solo: Use the Finale attack

Once you use Finale, the Violinist is defeated and you’ve won the duel.

Chapter 2 Reward

As a reward for completing chapter 2 of the Jester’s story, the Harvest skill is added to the Jester’s kit. Harvest deals two to four DMG to two targets at the second and third positions. It has a Crit chance of 5% and causes 2 Bleed per turn. It also has a 25% chance of inflicting the Combo token on the enemies. In order to use the skill after being equipped, Jester will need to be in position 2 or 3 during combat. This is a great skill for hitting a stealthed enemy in one of the two positions if there’s another target next to it.

That’s all there is to know about the Jester chapter 2 fight, Music of the Night. For more help in Darkest Dungeon 2, check out our growing library of guides, including Lair Boss tips and what the new tokens mean.
