Darkest Dungeon - Interacting with Curios

According to C:\GOG Games\Darkest Dungeon\localization\curios.string_table.xml, here are the iteractions and required items (if any) for curios in Darkest Dungeon. Note that in some cases not using and item will not necessarily result in a bad effect -- for example, if you use Holy Water on the Holy Fountain the result replaces the chance of getting loot from it. In some cases, interacting with the item locks in a negative result (e.g., if you use Holy Water on Occult Scrawlings).

You can buy Darkest Dungeon with no-hassle setup and risk-free money-back guarantee from Good Old Games.

Interacting with curios is a basically a lottery of what curios you will encounter and therefore what supplies you will waste -- When you buy supplies, at the end of the mission any leftovers are sold back at approximately 10% of the buying price.
This sell-back doesn't make sense because you could simply hold supplies till your next expedition. To adjust sell-back prices, you can look at the .sell_gold_value entries in C:\GOG Games\Darkest Dungeon\inventory\inventory.darkest and adjust them.

If you adjust the buy and sell values to full AND you are also using our recommended values for more Camping in Darkest Dungeon, we recommend you adjust only the starting firewood values and leave everything else alone.
