This was the first Darkest Dungeon run I ever uploaded to YouTube (even though the actual playthrough happened in early 2019). It was a crazy achievement, and one I haven’t seen completely finished by anyone else still. The other closest I saw had deaths on the final boss). This is a really old vod, though, and from a time when the stream was much smaller … so the quality is not as great in many aspects.
Here are the specifics for this run:
No light, ever
All bosses killed before final 4 quests
All DLCs completed
Within the 100 week time limit
NO DEATHS – Not even on the final boss.
