wraith is probably my favorite killer to play. I'm trying to plan a new build in the hopes that he does get fixed because i'm the same, his bugs have kept me from playing him lately.
I've been a pretty big wraith main ever since I joined in 2017, and right now my 100% favorite build is:
Perks: BBQ, Pop Goes the Weasel, Save the Best for Last, and Sloppy Butcher
Add-ons you can go one of two ways. Either you can do:
Any Windstorm + Any Clapper OR The Ghost + Any Clapper
Hands down the best build(s).
Ok I'll give you two builds I like on wraith and briefly explain it.
Haunted Ground (no one expects this on wraith and as fast as he can get around the map, hes able to find people fast. This adds lethality and a snowball to wraith.
Surge: Hes a M1 killer, so why not? Plus this combos well with thrilling tremors.
Thrilling tremors: (or bbq) this allows you to see the gens people are working on and b line there after u hook someone so that you can use..
Pop Goes the Weasel: Just an amazing perk.
Bamboozle to help him in chase by shutting down some loop but if you are really good with mind games you can use bbq as bbq is really good on wraith because of his movement speed.
Discordance: This helps you find people who are stacking on gens so you can run them off of it and initiate chase. Also can use sloppy butcher here as it helps wasting peoples time with healing.
There are honestly 47292649 other posts where we can air our grievance on the ruin change. Let's not use every thread on the forum to do so please
Do you brother, but no one expected this nerf. Sounds fun just standing in the corner. Enjoy your 15000 pts.
thana, sloppy, dying light, pgtw.
Sloppy, thana, nurses, bbq..the objective here is to force injuries and if you cant get the down quickly use his cloak to move and pressure in other areas..if you can get downs fast they'll start healing..I'd reccomend wind storm and bone Clapper addons as they synergize with the perks, reducing their fear of the ball and letting you use nurses to lunge at them around walls..knocking down the injured one if possible and take out the healer for more pressure..pretty much the best you can do with current wraith
Make Your Choice, Surveillance, Pop Goes the Weasel, Barbecue & Chili
Everybody is of course allowed to play however they want to. But you must realise how childish you sound, or not?
OOOO are we talking about retaliation with ruin?
I'm just gonna run my basement ghostface. Think insidious Bubba but sneakier, and teabaggier.
Sit where you can hide from people walking by, but have a good view down the stairs; wait for someone to go in for some reason (or just down someone near the basement and take them in); then repeat process as you can't get BT'd while in stealth and can always sit far enough away to not be spotted by Kindred.

Where in my post does it look like i'm talking about retaliation for ruin?
Because I have the skill and accuracy of a rank 20 huntress and clicked the wrong quote button for my remark
For both of those, the main thing I'd be concerned about is that you're running four perks to slow down generators but nothing to help you end chases faster (especially on Wraith, who isn't the greatest in a chase).
Can't speak for everyone, but I'd probably swap two of them out for Spirit Fury and Enduring. Wraith's really good at closing the distance, but loses a lot of it as he uncloaks. You can use that to your advantage to burn through a lot of pallets quickly; a lot of people will stun you as you uncloak to avoid the speed burst you get after you uncloak.
If that ain't your style, something like STBFL or PWYF is nice. PWYF is nice on Wraith in particular since you can cloak to instantly end a chase and get a stack.
That way, you'll be able to get some shorter chases and get that pressure up faster. Totally up to you, though. If you'd rather focus only on slowdown because you're confident that you can get quick chases with the Wraith, that works too.
I think 4 generator perks on any killer is overkill. If games are going way too fast when you're not stacking gen perks, the games aren't going too fast BECAUSE you're not stacking gen perks. There are other factors at play. Remember that you're facing 4 survivors, not the 1 you're chasing.
Wraith in particular eats pallets for breakfast. I'd at least have Enduring. He often gets free first hits, sometimes with survivors in really bad spots. Save The Best For Last can allow you to get 2 hits in if you catch the survivor in a deadzone. You'll want some tracking too. Nurse's/BBQ are good. Thrilling Tremors if you run Pop. Lastly, take a gen perk. Corrupt Intervention or Pop. If you really must have two, drop Enduring.
Just p3 my bubba haha insidious was on a bloodweb fasy aswell
Not sure where the passive aggressive ending comes from on a post that's genuinely offering someone tips when they asked for it. By no means should that have insulted you on a personal level to warrant that.
It is a bit of a gamble. It doesn't happen all of the time, but it will happen from time to time. It's best used with Nemesis or Furtive Chase (and actually quite a bit of fun, it's my go-to Wraith build). Whether the OP wants to switch up their builds that much, I don't know, that's up to them.
I love me some Nemesis/Furtive Chase/Make Your Choice. I was using it on Freddy, but now that you mention it, Wraith would do quite well with it.
It's great, I would highly recommend it. Cloaking and uncloaking while chasing your obsession gets you a stack, so you can build them up in no time. Only downside is that- unlike bubba- you need two hits to down someone, so you'll typically want to build up another stack before finishing them off.
Very good point. I think I do this too much on all my builds...as in I put too much emphasis on the gen slowing perks. I actually just asked zubat about my builds and his answer was about the same suggestion you are giving as he said "I just run the basic bitch spirit/enduring on wraith" lol.
I believe you are correct. As peanits pointed out and zubat as I just asked him on stream...I think i've convinced myself that without current ruin I have to stack the box with these perks and I need to get out of that mindset.
It's easy to forget that dead survivors can't do gens. I'm guilty of it. You can slow gens down or you can speed up the rate at which you hook survivors. You can gain back whatever you lose on gen regression by speeding up your chases.
If you want to have a laugh, double windstorm addons and PWYF+nemesis
Get stunned, get 3 stacks and become a racecar
Play with your food, BBQ and Chili, Furtive Chase, and Make your choice is one of my favorites. Wraith can instantly end a chase by cloaking and get a stack without losing too much ground. Furtive chase switches the obsession to their rescuer and lets you know who's exposed. With the speed and uncloaking addons It's surprisingly powerful, Otz has a video called "2 Fast 2 Bong" on YouTube. He had rancor but I didn't like it over bbq. Another good build is with sloppy, nurses, thanatophobia and bbq/pop
why? you go insidious to save fast saw add-ons
Just 2x Speed add-ons and PWYF to zoom past the competition.
This guy asks for legit build options and the noob baby killers come in "WITHOUT RUIN IM GONNA CRY AND CAMP" way to suggest real options u 10 year old rank 20s. Corrupt is gonna be my go to perk because I realize this game isn't all about using one perk on every killer:)
I like how the baby killer who can't win without ruin is making an attempt to insult me😂 sorry you spend your whole life on these forums and comment immediately after I call you out for giving advice that a 10 year old would give. I didn't even have to reply to you and you got salty.. that sad fact speaks volumes for you👶🍼
i use BBQ & Chili, Pop Goes The Weasel, Thanatophobia and Brutal Strength.
Depends on the add ons you use. I like his speed add ons and uncloaking speed.
A good perk is Make Your Choice. If you try it with a normal killer the exposed survivor will run when they hear your terror radius either keep running or hide. With Wraith they run a bit and then stop. Is Wraith coming? Is he busy? They dont know. They also dont know which direction you will approach from. It’s very easy to sneak up on people like this.
You can make it back to the hook fast with his add on and the uncloaking speed buff helps you land that sneak hit. Silent bell or bone clapper would work too.
