The Fanatic appears when at least one of your heroes is infected with the crimson curse. For this to happen you must play the level 1 courtyard quest, where at least one hero is likely to be infected.

How to find:

He will appear as a random corridor fight in a random mission, he will only appear if you take crimson cursed heroes with you and more makes him more likely to appear. You will know for certain if he is in a level you are embarking on as the loading screen cutscene is different with a unique narration about the Fanatic.


Depending on the level of the quest he will have different stats, when I fought him he was in his hardest iteration with around 200 HP.

The fight shares mechanics with both the prophet and the hag. He will almost constantly have a hero tied to a stake, where they take constant damage, being spat out when they are at deaths door. He has a small amount of protect, not huge dodge and relatively low bleed/blight resistances. Marking him/debuffing is less effective as he acts multiple times a turn.

He does not deal a lot of damage with his actions but acts at least twice a turn and can stun and otherwise debuff your heroes.

Destroying the bonfire while your hero is on it will spit them out prematurely but gives him a huge buff and frenzies him. So the best strategies is either leave a hero in and focus him down or help your team members and mitigate the oncoming damage with heroes who can guard or with incredibly high dodge.

Important tips:
- He will constantly move between ranks 1-2 to 3-4 so bring heroes who can work at most ranks
- When he sentences a hero it pushes everyone forward one, so plan for any member being taken
- When a hero is spat out from the fire, on deaths door or otherwise, it placed them in rank 1 and pushes the test of your heroes back
- if you retreat while he has someone captive they will die and you will lose all their equipped trinkets

Good luck and if you have any suggestions let me know
