Trinkets for the most part are going to be found completely at random during a players journey on their exhibitions. There are a wide assortment of trinkets, varying in rarity and type. Once you have obtained one, while outside of combat, select the hero you want to equip it to. This will open their inventory, and there will be 2 slots for players to equip trinkets in. These items will typically come with fantastic buffs for heroes, with a debuff or two tacked on as a trade off. As with most things in Darkest Dungeon 2, everything comes at a cost.

There are a total of 4 different trinket categories, with a fair amount of sub categories within those. Hero Trinkets are exclusive ones that are attached to specific heroes that drop randomly. Every hero has 3 unique trinkets they can get and each one possesses more stat buffs and debuffs than your average trinket. General Trinkets are your run-of-the-mill treasures you’ll find throughout your time exploring certain areas. Unforgettable Trinkets are unordinary treasures you can only obtain when encountering cultists in any region. And Finally we have Special Trinkets. These doodads are found when defeating special enemies as well as lair bosses. Additionally, some Special Trinkets can be obtained through certain Academic’s Study nodes.
