    Hi Otz, awesome stuff, love your channel, man! What you think of this combo Lithe, Dance with me, Self Care and 4th perk as changeable Kindred/Iron Will/Botanic Knowledge/Deliverance there are several more I try from time to time... Note that I play DbD for , atm exactly 100hours, so not much :-)

    I got Iron Will a few weeks ago and I legit don't know how I ever played without it. It really helps me juke killers and hide around the corner from them and even go right back to working on gens without worrying about being heard halfway across the map, which is actually helping to train me out of that beginner knee-jerk instinct to run to a corner and immediately heal. It's even made me less afraid to take hits for other survivors and then get away without being found. Seriously. Get Iron Will. It's bloody brilliant.

    A few beginner's tips are to be mindful about the generator's locations, and figuring out the best repair pattern. If a generator spawns dead in the middle of the map, it should be considered the highest priority to be fixed. Also, try doing the generators in a cross pattern, while leaving the outermost ones for last. This will create a very long patrol route for the killer, and will in turn likely result in your escape.

    very good for begginers... i would recommend leveling up meg and bill, just with those 2 you will have the one of the strongest builds in the game, if u dont like sprint can consider unlocking dead hard from david but is a little bit more advanced... if any Lithe is also good. then from licensed characters i couldnt say it better myself i was gonan say nancy since she has Inner strenght and amazing perk for solos and then laure strode for DS, so basically if u really were tight on money, buy haloween DLC, comes with laure and also michael myers who has some amazing perks like Save the best for last.... and then with those 3 characters, Laure, Bill and Meg you can easily create the strognest build in the game (something like Decisive, Sprint, Borrow time and unbrekable... but do you know how to use it tho? look others playing to understand. bringing a med kit to heal yourself is always a better idea than using perks to heal yourself, even a simple brown medkit can make the difference, i suggest you to look at that you will improve better and faster than startign VERY IMMERSED AND SLOWLY, also way funnier.

      No, at levels 30 35 and 40 you unlock their 'teachable' version of the perk. Which just means that as you level up a different survivor those character unique perks will appear as buyable in the web.

    پیش 29 روز

    im a little late but i wanna mention that in my opinion the whole All Star DLC might be the best DLC to get first. Some will now say "Trickstar is dog ****" and i will somewhat agree with you. But i think all of the 6 Perks that the DLC will provide will help new players get started. And here is why: Fast Track. Some might say it is ok but i say it helps newer players to hit skillchecks always "great". You can only trigger this Perk by hitting a perfect Skillcheck on a Gen and with this Perk you are somewhat forced to do so. Which will help you to consistently hit a great skillcheck. Smash Hit. Somewhat similiar to Fast Track. The Perk helps you to hit palletstuns, because if you wont hit pallet stuns you will not get your movement speed boost. So this Perk is another in game Training Perk. Self-Presevation. It is just so great for "new" / "bad" players to get the hell out of positions that are really not so good for them. This Perk will help you not to get punished for being in a wrong spot. Starstruck. Really simple it safes from those damn clickers. As a bad Killer such behavior will Trigger you and might even make you quit playing Killer altogehter (that is what happened to me) but with this Perk, any Survivor that will try to do the Flashlight save, will risk their own life for that. Which will make you feel greater. Crowd Control. It just helps with looping. As a bad player you will get looped to death but with his perk the survivors can't really force a perfect LT onto you. No way Out. Will again help you with a situation that normally is hard for beginners. The endgame collapse. Because this perk will somewhat delay it and therefore might even give you enough time for another kill. (might be paired with NOED). This while thing here only makes sense if you have not unlocked any other teachables yet and you are basically only playing the All Star Chars Perks + the free Perks lot a writing mistakes here...

    Here let me make it easier for you: Borrowed time by levelling bill, also get unbreakable which is nice Then you level david for dead hard and we're gonna live forever Then jake for iron will Then laurie for decisive strike Then you run borrowed, dead hard (dead hard could be swapped with any exhaustion perk, especially since it doesn't even work half the time but once you start using it you can't go back) and then choose 2 out of 3 perks: decisive, we're gonna live forever, iron will. If you want bloodpoints I'd say use we're gonna live forever over iron will. If you don't wanna run a meta build then at least use borrowed time, its a mandatory perk for survivors and if you have access to it and don't use it you're scum

    Went Dwight > Bill > Fei > Jake > David so far. Bought Distortion in the Shrine so my Bill is running BT, Prove Thyself, Distortion, and Spine Chill or We'll Make It currently. I don't play solo though. Always with a partner or full party. Distortion helps big time to inform others of what aura reveal perks the killer has when running in a party.

    Would love some mid-game help for the upper-mid rank people, as I'm sure most people are who take the game relatively serious and try to learn from content! I feel like we have a pretty good understanding on how the game is played, what our win-conditions are, and how to do the occasional out-play in chase. But I cant help feeling lost sometimes in the mid game chaos not knowing what my next move should be...especially as killer, how do I assess what needs to be done in order to achieve victory. Some examples of things I sometimes struggle with: Knowing when saving someone or doing a generator is more important, where and when cleansing totems fit in that mix When to go for hooks and kills instead of gens How to set up a favorable end game gen situation How to efficiently reset and recover How to hold a lead When to be aggressive and when to be reactive
