The Wraith

Everyone's playing the Spirit on the PTB, but has anyone tried out the Wraith with his changes!?! I'm real excited to hear how he's feeling on the PTB. Please share! For those that don't remember, changes below:

The Wraith changes

  • After successfully uncloaking, the wraith gains a burst of speed for 1 second, similar to the effect from the Windstorm add-ons. These add-ons have been redesigned.
  • Movement speed while uncloaking has been adjusted.
  • The uncloak exit animation, which lasts 0.3 seconds after finishing uncloaking, can now be cancelled by attacking or interacting with objects.
  • Time required to burn the Wraith out of cloak with a flashlight increased from 1.5 to 2 seconds. The Blind Warrior add-ons, which previously granted further light burn protection, have been redesigned.

Revisited all of the Wraith's add-ons

  • "All Seeing" - Blood: Survivor aura reading range increased from 10m to 12m.
  • "All Seeing" - Mud: Replaced with new add-on "The Beast" - Soot. Changed rarity from Uncommon to Common. The Wraith's terror radius no longer suppressed while cloaked, and bloodpoints granted for Stalker and Surprise Attack are increased by 100%.
  • "All Seeing" - Spirit: Redesigned. While cloaked, the repair progress of generators can be determined by the intensity of their auras.
  • "All Seeing" - White: Replaced with new add-on "The Serpent" - Soot. Changed rarity from Rare to Common. The Wraith will uncloak completely when breaking pallets or damaging generators while cloaked.
  • "Blind Warrior" - Blood: Replaced with new add-on "Shadow Dance" - White. Changed rarity from Very Rare to Rare. Reduces the time required to vault windows, break pallets or damage generators while cloaked.
  • "Blind Warrior" - Mud: Redesigned. Surprise attacks inflict survivors with aura blindness for 60 seconds.
  • "Blind Warrior" - Soot: replaced with "The Hound" - Soot. Fresh blood marks are considerable more discernible than normal.
  • "Blind Warrior" - Spirit: Replaced with new add-on "Shadow Dance" - Blood. Changed rarity from Ultra Rare to Very Rare. Reduces the time required to vault windows, break pallets or damage generators while cloaked.
  • "Blind Warrior" - White: Redesigned. Surprise attacks inflict survivors with mangled and hemorrhage until healed.
  • "Blink" add-ons have had their values and rarities adjusted.
  • "Swift Hunt" add-ons have had their values and rarities adjusted.
  • "The Ghost" - White: Redesigned and renamed "The Ghost" - Soot. Changed rarity from Rare to Common. The Wraith's terror radius will remains suppressed for 6 seconds after uncloaking.
  • "Windstorm" add-ons now increase the Wraith's movement speed while cloaked and decrease the Wraith's movement speed while uncloaking.
  • Bone Clapper: Changed rarity from Common to Uncommon. Survivors can no longer discern the Wailing Bell's distance or direction.
  • Coxcombed Clapper: Changed rarity from Uncommon to Ultra Rare. Renders the Wailing Bell completely silent.

    Why should anyone bother about the poor Wraith at the day that we finally get a new TOP TIER killer into the game? The max he can get with these changes is to mid-low tier, he wont be more picked than Nurse, Spirit, HB, Huntress or Michael anyways.

    He deserves some love and I'm hoping the changes are noticable improvements. He shouldn't be abandoned just because he's not known as a top tier pick. Im excited to hear some feedback from the Bing bong boys out there. Wraith mains exist.

    I love the Wraith too, i still play him at Rank 1, but i cant get 4 kills every match so he is not a favorite pick of mine (even if i pick him every 3 matches), however, im a Nurse main and will be picking the Spirit every single match for AGES just as i did with Nurse.

    Nurse is the reason i started to play this game more seriously and now i have TWO reasons to do so, its a dream coming true!

    The add on changes sound horrible.

    Especially Windstorm... getting slower uncloacked is such huuuuge drawback, I don'T think anything can make up for that.

    The Beast is the new useless add on that goes in line with the garbage that is Speed Limiter and Padded Jaws.

    Did you try Windstorm? Imo it's amazing. When I used both the addons I was as fast as the Hillbilly, even with Sprint Burst I could catch up to them in an instant. Without the drawback it would be OP

    did someone actually say the new killer is top tier?

    I throw up in my mouth every time I read your pointless [BAD WORD] comments.

    Woah, I've got to see that.

    Unfortunately, I was only in one match against a Wraith last night. But, the changes were definitely noticeable. It was a lot more difficult to gain any distance and break LoS. Cloaked, he was on me instantly. I wish I had been paying more attention to what he was running post-match, but I was just trying to get as many matches in as possible before I went to bed.

    It's hard to say how much they've improved him. I'm really hoping to get some more matches against him, and start a few lobbies as him. I didn't play killer at all last night because the lobby wait times were atrocious, so I'm going to try to focus on him and The Spirit tonight.

    Yes, she has the potential to be with experience. Play her and play against her and anyone can see it. Just wait till people get more experience and it will be crazy. 

    She can snowball like the nurse and it becomes very hard to recover.

    She has mind game galore like the nurse

    High map traversability and during chases like the nurse.

    Ability has large cooldown if used too much and she can’t go through walls unlike the nurse.
    However, using the ability efficiently can make it have a small cooldown.

    I totally agree. I feel that she is going to have a larger learning curve than most killers, but once that's reached, she's going to be quite formidable.

    I saw a few streamers 4k with Mr. Bing Bong last night while using the silent bell addon. And it was pretty amusing to watch him vault with the new addons that speed it up. I'm hoping to go up against him more in games now, as he's one of my favorite killers.
