Two Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang goals brought Borussia Dortmund from behind but a late equaliser from Aytac Sulu earned Darmstadt a point.
Borussia Dortmund failed to keep pace with Bundesliga leaders Bayern Munich as a last-gasp goal saw them held 2-2 by Darmstadt at Signal Iduna Park.
Thomas Tuchel's men went into the game five points behind Bayern, whom they travel to face next weekend, and were searching for a win after their midweek draw with Hoffenheim had ended their perfect start to the campaign.
However, Dirk Schuster's men had already taken four points from trips to Schalke and Bayer Leverkusen this season and looked ready to cause another upset when Marcel Heller opened the scoring with a sublime volley.
But the in-form Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang looked to have turned the game on its head and secured the win for Dortmund, becoming the first player in Bundesliga history to net in each of the first seven games of a new season with a pair of goals putting his side ahead with less than 20 minutes remaining.
Aubameyang's goalscoring run in the league now stretches back nine games into 2014-15, a sequence which has seen him net 11 times.
However, Darmstadt spoiled the Gabon international's party as Aytac Sulu fired in an equaliser as Dortmund failed to clear a set-piece in the final minute of normal time.
