Builds

Build – Spellweaver Trailblazer

The main goal of this build is to clear jobs in easy difficulty very quickly.

You can regularly complete some jobs by round 3 and you will very rarely need more than 5 rounds.

It is not fully optimized, some cards / items could be changed to make it even faster.

Spellweaver

Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds

r1: Reviving ether (b), Chromatic explosion (t)

Go next to the door of first room and charge up elements

r2: Stone fists (t), Zephyr wings (b)

Go as far as you can using boots of sprinting, at least opening 3rd room. Try to position yourself to hit 2 strong opponents with stone fist, hopefully sending one of them on a trap.

Also anticipate in which room you will do inferno.

You can position yourself and use stone fists to try to keep as many opponents in the room as possible or not.

Do not forget to activate cloak of invisibility ! (bad things happen if you don’t but it’s still possible to win)

r3: Inferno (t), Frozen night (b)

Heavy damage, activate Eagle-eye googles and major power potion and stay invisible.

After: use fire orbs to finish whatever is left. Use the giant spider and your mobility to pick-up some loot.

Brute

Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds
Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds

r1: Defensive tactics (b), Face your end (t)

Use the early initiative to disarm opponents that could immobilize you.

r2: Skirmishing maneuver (t), Hook and chain (b)

Help to clear up the first room and go next to the door

r3: Trample (b), Balanced measure (t)

Your main damage dealing turn, activate enhanced drill / boots of sprinting / major power potion and go through as many opponents as you can.

You can use blinking cape / doomed compass to end up next to someone and deal 10+ damage attack with balanced measure.

After: use frenzied onslaught and devastating hack to finish whatever is left

Soothsinger

Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds
Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds

r1: Disorienting dirge (b), Melody and harmony (t)

Mass curses and buffs. The reason captivating performance is not played turn 1 is due to a bug preventing scoundrel to play its buffs afterwards.

You can activate mountain hammer / ring of skulls although waiting next turn to see if they are needed or not is fine too

The goal of these summons is just to clear first room when all your allies have gone (round 2 onwards)

Summons are strong on soothsinger due to its high damage modifier deck compared to others.

r2: Captivating performance (t), Booming proclamation (b) or Provoke terror (b)

Choice of bottom card depends on ally / enemies placement

r3: Power ballad (t), whatever is needed (b)

After: you will just be picking up loot from now on. Use inspiring anthem (b) whenever you have a proper setup due to its infinite range

Scoundrel

Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds
Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds

r1: Single out (b), Watch it burn (t)

r2: Flanking strike (b), Stiletto storm (t)

Poison strong enemies, position yourself next to the door but leave the closest space for brute if it can reach it this round.

Winged shoes can be activated either on this round or next one, depending on your needs

r3: Hidden dagger (t), Backstab (b)

Play after Trample, just finish whatever is left.

Use your items (sacrificial robes, major power potion) round 3

After: duelist advance / throwing knives is a good combo to pick up loot

What could be improved:

Brute: add strength on the trample turn, can be done with lucky eye for instance

Brute: Defensive tactics is not very impactful, there might be something better to play.

Spellweaver: it would be good to play earlier in turn 2 so that other characters can start cleaning 2nd room already

Spellweaver: element generation on zephyr could be transferred to other characters / items for additional movement

Soothsinger: we don’t really need that many curses, disorienting device enhancement could be changed to something else

Soothsinger: the impact of power ballad is limited, and it takes 2 cards to setup there might be better things to play instead

Scoundrel: round 2 attack hits before soothsinger captivating performance, which could be changed with a card with slightly higher than 25 initiative that plays slightly later (although speed to clear room 1 doesn’t really matter overall so it’s ok to waste damage there)

Build – Plagueherald ORK

Gloomhaven Card list + Items + Enhancements and Builds

This build can deal 35 damage to all enemies on round 1 which is enough for a savvas lavaflow elite in insane difficulty.

This build does not require many enhancements – only character for which they are slightly useful is Nightshroud but it doesn’t change much.

This build does not care about perk setup at all.

This build uses only a few cards for each character (around 3/4), rest can be filled as needed.

This build requires a lot of items that are available only late in the game.

The overall play order is:

1) Plagueherald uses all its items

2) Quartermaster refreshes Plagueherald items

3) Sunkeeper gives extra turn to Plagueherald

4) Plagueherald uses all its items again

Plagueherald should be placed behind Quartermaster and Sunkeeper as getting Plagueherald stunned/disarmed is the main risk of failure.

Detailed steps

Nightshroud

Unseen dread (b) / Grim sustenance (t) – initiative 5

Play grim sustenance at any point during the turn, it’s just to be invisible, not to deal damage

Use Wand of storm and Major Mana potion to create Light / Dark / Wind elements

Then just move as far as you can using:

Unseen dread (7) + Boots of sprinting (4) / Blinking Cape (4) / Ring of Haste + Spirit of the night (8) / Empowering Talisman + Ring of Haste + Angel of death (6) or Silent force (7) if you don’t need jump on that last move

29 movement should be enough to reach the last room, even for job quests with a lot or rooms

Reasons for having low initiative is mostly to avoid stun / immobilize on the Nightshroud, burn Dark if required to avoid opponents using it to get invisible, as well as avoiding a bug on the quartermaster boots that tends to happen when an opponent has lower initiative for some reason.

Accelerated End (1 dmg)

Major Stamina potion (Mass Extinction / Accelerated End)

Ring of Haste (Mass Extinction)

Mass Extinction (2 dmg)

And that’s 36 damage done to everyone

Notes:

– If you want to farm gold quickly, you can use the same build but finish off last enemy on round 2 instead of 1, and use round 2 to gather the loot.

– It might be possible to do a stronger damage sequence with more items, like another second chance ring added to Quartermaster:

  1. Plagueherald uses all its items
  2. Quartermaster refreshes Plagueherald items and second chance itself to play as 5)
  3. Sunkeeper gives turn to Plagueherald, restores the Side Pouch from Quartermaster
  4. Plagueherald uses all its items again, but the last second chance is done with high initiative to let Quartermaster play
  5. Quartermaster refreshes Plaqueherald items
  6. Plagueherald uses all its items for a 3rd time

Not sure if it actually works (mixing up the extra turns on multiple characters while using Unwavering Mandate seems quite bug-prone at the moment) but anyway it’s useless in regular job quests as everyone dies to the 2nd wave from Plagueherald already.
