You’ll find all sorts of information here regarding the Handmaiden Career (for Kerillian) in Vermintide 2. The Handmaiden is a strange spec that is heavily leaning to “support”. I have to say, its kit really helps prevent runs from turning sour. Remember that you can block and revive in this game – and PUSH enemies – Use your huge stamina pool!

Handmaiden Generic Build Template

This is meant to be a General purpose” build for the Handmaiden which focuses on the early to midgame. I will be adding more specialized builds which require more heavy item support soon.

5 Quiver of Plenty Either
10 Eldrazor’s Precision Triumph of the Cadai
15 Hukon’s Tenacity Either

Handmaiden “Starter / Early Game” Build – Talent Choice Discussion

L5 Talent - Quiver of Plenty
L10 Talent - Eldrazor's Precision
L15 Talent - Hukon's Tenacity
L20 Talent - Khaine's Thirst
L20 Talent - Gift of Ladrielle

Remember the above recommendations are primarily suited to be good for “most people”, specifically for “early to midgame” when gear drops can’t easily be tailor fit to your needs.


Well that’s about it (FOR NOW) regarding Kerillian Handmaiden Career path in Vermintide 2. I’m oddly excited to make a tryhard Handmaiden build with block/stamina talents haha. These heavy stamina investments really force you to “play a unique way” that isn’t present in most classes. It’s a cute spec that has its place – remember the Handmaiden the next time your team wipes.
