Let’s go over how to beat the Prophet boss!
Prophet Boss Guide – Darkest Dungeon
Okay. Each turn that the Prophet will have, he will use an attack called Prognostication or Calamitous on one or two positions in the field. After that, he’ll release a detrimental attack on these positions, often time with the ability to wipe out whole health bars on weaker characters.
So, the great thing is, that the strongest attack- the Rubble Of Ruin, will be released at those spots. Players can either move or use protection skills for the characters on those positions!
The Prophet won’t budge in any way from the fourth position. He’ll have three walls in front of him, which equal to more health than the boss himself.
So, whatever you do, make sure you make a team composition that can attack on the fourth position. Otherwise, the whole fight takes long, and it doesn’t make sense to drag on this fight, as the Prophet is known for releasing powerful attacks that are one-shot.
Use Man At Arms if you want to protect characters which are marked on their position at a beginning of a turn.
