Just got the Spirit DLC since everything was on sale and was just wondering about what some of you guys fav Spirit builds are? Like I put in the title, I am definitely a "beginner" level spirit. I am a rank 7 Killer normally but I just want to see what other peoples builds look like. Thanks

    When buying headphones, don't focus on gaming brand headphones, aim to the audio related brands.

    You never break pallets and dont need any chase perks. I just use tracking perks like BBQ, Thrilling, Nurses, Stridor or slowdown perks like Pop, Corrupt, Ruin are your go to perks.

    Common mistakes from new spirits you shouldnt do!

    • Dont chase a survivors without your power, you are a slow Killer (Try to learn to predict healthy survivors in your power, I know it will be hard but you have to go through and learn)
    • Dont relie on scratch marks too much, they are buggy and sometimes can miss lead you, listening is the key. Listen too footstebs, injury sounds or grass movements.
    • Dont break every single pallet (Also no pallet perks needed, brutal streanght, spirit fury etc are bad perks on her)
    • Learn when to use phasewalk and when not, dont use it mindless

    Hope I helped you somehow and good luck!

    All you need is stridor. The rest are QoL perks.

    stand still, that's a mindgame apparently.

    "Stridor" is really good on her. I prefer Ruin+Surveillance, Sloppy/Whispers and BBQ on her.

    Basically if you're a good enough killer and have a pair of headphones and a pair of ears, you really can't go wrong with Spirit and the build doesn't matter. That being said, she benefits from tracking perks. A popular build is BBQ, stridor, Nurse's, sloppy/pop goes the braincells. Sloppy is probably her best perk because if a survivor is injured against spirit they're basically already dead

    Try standing still at pallets. Survivors will be unsure how to react because they don't know what your doing. This will either cause then to leave the loop or throw it prematurely.

    step 1: acquire headphones

    step 2: congrats you are now red rank

    This is all you will ever need to become a good spirit ^^

    People saying "all you need are good headphones/stridor" are wrong. that could be true for low rank killers who just bought the game and don't know how to play killer very well. Spirit isn't too different than a trapper for regular chases, but she does have the added ability of phase walking. Sure, stridor and good headphones help, but they aren't all you need.

    also, I was a Spirit main for a long while, so here are my tips.

    • have a good pair of headphones, preferably surround sound. as someone mentioned above, stridor helps if you dont have any.
    • always be listening, even if you're not phasing, She's pretty quiet compared to some killers when it comes to her footsteps, so stuff is easy to hear. I hear breathing all the time and its often a survivor crouching nearby trying to hide.
    • standing still will confuse survivors into thinking you're phasing. So if you want to try that, stand still at a pallet or window and watch if they are going to come back and vault towards you. It does take patience sometimes and standing for a while might be what you need to do.
    • trying to mindgame the phase will not work if the survivors are smart, but you can start phasing and stand still, and hopefully they will come towards you. If they dont they will just run away and you can go after them.
    • PREDICT where people are going to run. If they go into a house, try and think of where they might come out. I usually like to go around the building in the opposite direction as them so they run face-first into me.
    • Break safe pallets, they are awful since you cant do anything about them while phasing. You can leave unsafe ones since getting the hit at most is easy.

    My suggested add-ons:

    • Bloody Hair Brooch + Katsumori Talisman (very fast activation charge and long duration, will help you to catch up to survivors easy
    • Dirty Uwabaki + Katsumori Talisman (speeeeeed for longer)
    • White Hair Ribbon + Kaiun Talisman (My normal add-on choice, improves activation charge and duration)
    • Rusty Flute + Wakizashi Saya (zoom out of phase and phase more often)
    • Mother-Daughter Ring + Bloody Hair Brooch (ultimate speed with fast activation. scratch marks are removed by the ring so listening for survivors is key with this one)
    • Father's Glasses + Katsumori Talisman (the blood goes neon red/orange and the added duration helps with tracking

    My suggested perks:

    • BBQ & Chili for tracking after a hook
    • Pop Goes The Weasel for gen slowdown
    • Ruin for pressure
    • Make Your Choice for easy downs
    • Devour Hope (when it works) is just fun
    • Sloppy Butcher if you're using Father's Glasses
    • Discordance for tracking
    • Haunted Grounds (when paired with Ruin is great)

    I know this is long but I hope it helps! Feel free to message me if you want more info as well :)

    this is actually great advice! I have some very nice Phillips headphones that are incredible! I think they've been helping em with my spirit gameplay though. Thanks again .

  • OkoruOkoru Member Posts: 144

    Thank you so much! I have definitely been chasing more people than I should outside of my ability and I need to improve on getting hits on healthy survivors.

  • BenZ0BenZ0 Member Posts: 1,854

    yea its not good if you always try to walk around and hit ppl without your power, you should learn to use it to travel around the map faster or get first hits aswell. Just dont be scared and try to phasewalk as much as you can.
