As there are four Heretic Hearts you’ll unlock — one for each of the main boss fights — you don’t need to worry about missing out on any of these. However, you will want to consider which ones you’ll want to get first.

We’d recommend getting ‘The Hunger’ first, just because it’s a quick and easy health boost before you embark on a Crusade. Omnipresence is handy but not all that important in the early stages of the game. Resurrection is pretty handy if you have Followers you’re willing to sacrifice for the greater good, while Darkness Within can also grant you a health boost, albeit not as handy as that given by The Hunger.
