Darkest Dungeon - Shadows Blur Together Achievement Guide

Since many players seem to go through a serious struggle trying to get this achievement i decided to get my easy, safe and reliable solution for obtaining this one out there.

  • 1 Rat Carcass very rare trinket, preferably combined with the “mantra of fasting”.
  • Only 1 hero thats infected with the crimson curse, preferably already wasting. The cursed hero should be any rank 3/4 damage dealer/support class. 
  • 3 other heroes to form a reliable stall party with, able to withstand two frontline enemies for an extended amount of time. I prefer a Man-At-Arms, a Crusader and a Vestal. 
  • To take a lot of bandages. 
  • A little time and patience. 
  • Nothing else.


  • Provision generously. Bandages and food are helpful here. 
  • Equip the cursed hero with the aforementioned trinkets. 
  • Take the party to the ruins for safety, difficulty or dungeon level doesnt really matter. 
  • Play until you find an enemy setup which can be reduced to two enemies which can only hit the front two ranks, ideally two cultist brawlers. 
  • Switch the wasting and crying hero to the second position and carefully let the brawlers lower his HP. 
  • At the point when the bleed on the cursed hero will take him to deaths door, switch him back to position 3. 
  • When the bleed has taken him to 0 HP, cure it with a bandage so he doesnt die from it. 
  • While wasting the hero will occasionally hurt himself (and only himself), which will eventually pass the deaths door check and kill him. 
  • Until that happens all you need to do is protect the 2 front ranks with MAA, heal any stress with the Crusader and occasionally heal the minimal incoming damage with the Vestal. 
  • This can take quite a while, like 50 rounds. But its absolutely safe once you executed the steps above successfully. 
  • Yes, the suicide of a hero due to the crimson curse triggers the achievement, i got mine this way. 
  • Enjoy the stress-free cheese with some nice wine and always stay clear of overconfidence!

My first game was Naughty Dog’s Crash Bandicoot (PlayStation) back in 1996. And since then gaming has been my main hobby. I turned my passion for gaming into a job by starting my first geek blog in 2009. When I’m not working on the site, I play mostly on my PlayStation. But I also love outdoor activities and especially skiing.
