Need help with survivor builds

I’m on the cusp of deciding all my survivor perk builds, but have a few that I’m stumped on and have no idea what perk(s) would work well with the ones I already have decided.

I always use Kindred as I find it to be incredibly useful as a solo survivor so that perk is on all my survivors, and allows me three other perk slots to work with.

  1. Audodidact/Empathy (need a third perk)
  2. Second Wind (have no idea what works with it. Thought maybe Deliverance but upon researching it apparently doesn’t synergize)
  3. Any Means Necessary/Windows of Opportunity (need a third perk)

Any help is greatly appreciated.

    1: Personally I'd use We'll make it with it, so you can heal them faster and have the penalty mean less than it usually would.

    2: Your first build could be used with this, although usually if I ever use this perk I'll use Dead Hard and Decisive Strike just incase.

    3: Spinechill. You vault windows extremely fast with this. Lithe and Q&Q are two other options if Spinechill isn't your taste.

    For the first build, something like Solidarity could possibly work, since healing others will benefit you too. Spine Chill is another good alternative, since it increases Skill Check frequency when the killer is looking in your direction, which would help you get more mileage out of Autodidact.

    As for Second Wind, maybe something like Aftercare (which is a pretty underrated perk in my opinion), or anything that helps you not get downed again quickly. So Iron Will or Off The Record could work (but not both together). Sprint Burst to help you get out of there quickly is also an option, or something that removes or reduces scratch marks like Dance With Me or Lightweight.

    As for the third build, Alert or Lithe could work well. Alert, because it will let you know when the killer breaks a pallet, and it's just a good perk in general, and Lithe because it will help you get more value out of WoO.

    Thanks for the advice guys. I think ultimately I’m going with:

    Autodidact/Empathy/We’ll Make It

    Second Wind/Off The Record/Dead Hard

    Any Means Necessary/Window of Opportunity/Lithe

    Now I gotta grind BPs!

    I'll just add for consideration's sake, the only reason I didn't recommend We'll Make It with Autodidact was because Autodidact works best when you get lots of skill checks, and the faster the heal is, the less likely you are to get a lot of skill checks, so the two kind of step on each other's toes a bit. It's okay if you still want to use it, just something to take into account.

    You bring up a good point. Funny thing is I was trying to see if there was a perk that increased the likelihood of triggering skill checks and thought there was none, completely forgetting that Spine Chill does that. So yeah I think I’ll go with Autodidact/Empathy/Spine Chill.
