    Ah well thanks, honestly I didn't expect a reply so soon so this is quite convenient for me as I have most of those perks (except urban as it hasn't appeared on my bloodweb yet after buying from store @[email protected]) thanks.

    No problem! I main Nea so I got Urban easy but had to wait for self care to appear in the shrine xD

    I would use Iron Will instead of Dark Sense, in case the killer hit you and you want to escape by sneaking away under his nose, otherwise the perks David advised are great for stealth

    Also very true but I don't have Iron Will xD

    I've been playing a full stealth build without even knowing it. Except instead of Dark sense I try to carry We'll Make It because I tend to get altruistic mid-late game.

    Level up all survivors, in the end it's worth it ;)

    I like Technician, and Urban Evasion. 

    I don't mind running deja vu (helps dodge 3 gen strats), or detective's hunch to help take guess work out of finding gens and helps plot a stealthy course.

    Iron will is a positive. 

    Lightweight is cool.

    Spine chill, and alert are good additions.

    I like pairing dance with me with lithe to help dissuade killers from following me if I am found. Light weight for that added zip.

    To stealth I'd use:
    Urban Evasion,
    Iron will,
    Spine chill
    and Calm Spirit. (the only reason I'm suggesting this is because some killers like yours truly like to track with Crows and Calm spirit can really save you). And once they buff Spies in the Shadows, it'll be mandatory.

    Alert, technician, iron will, last can be anything you feel works with your style whether healing or more stealth.
  • thesuicidefoxthesuicidefox Member Posts: 2,160

    Urban Evasion, Iron Will, Distortion, and Quick & Quiet.

    IW, UE, DWM, Lithe.

    IW + UE are very effective at stealth/juke
    DWM + Lithe are probably the best perk combination to lose the killer

    You may switch UE with SC if you want.

    Iron Will FOR SURE. you can't have a stealth build without it. self-care isn't really necessary if you're talking super-stealth. I know a lot of other people are saying Iron Will but I'm saying it because it's a MUST. You can do a lot of variations on a stealth build, so I'll just put my favorite stealthy perks that you can mix & match (with the exception of IW which I use on EVERY build). Iron Will, Spine Chill, Quick & Quiet, Urban Evasion, Premonition (but Spine Chill is superior), Lightweight (if not using Urban and running around a lot), Technician (for messing up skill checks, but if you're good at them it wastes a perk slot), Distortion.

    Regarding Distortion, I haven't actually tried it out so I don't know how well it works or if it's too situational.

  • DelfadorDelfador Member Posts: 1,133

    When I first started to play DBD, I immediately created a stealth build and it was

    Urban evasion, Iron will, Premonition and Lightweight.

    Especially premonition is great for any stealth build. If you know where the killer is coming from, you can position yourself very well and hide from him.

    It's the most effective way to see what aura perks or add-ons the killer is using. It also let's you know when you are and are not within BBQ range. It's not at all situational, but you need to use lockers or standard tactics to avoid auras in order to maintain tokens for when you need them. If you just let them go each time there is a hook then it's a bit of a waste, depending on what you do when it procs. I let 1 token go for the first hook just to see if they have BBQ, then I try to save the others for when I really need them. I try to save 1 token for the end, so I could run to a gate and not worry about BBQ.

    The only thing I wish Distortion had was a sound effect when it procs, like Prem or something. Because there are times where a lot is going on then all of a sudden I'm 1 less token and trying to figure out what aura perk it was that used it.

    The thing with Prem is that if you play enough killer and understand what a killer is doing you don't need it 99% of the time. You can just track the killer yourself. The only time it would be super useful is if it's like Pig or Wraith and you are in a very vulnerable position where they can sneak up on you.

    I find a lot of survivors running something that makes their portrait look like two ends of a plug that got pulled apart. It seems like a very viable stealth build as I never seem to find them once its activated.

    theres no stealth in this game.....

    killer: wait wheres the claudette

    Urban Evasion is a must. Period.
    I like to go with Calm Spirit and Iron Will after that. Calm Spirit is very situational right now but is a 100% game changer against Doctor. When 2.5 hits it will also stump Spies from the Shadows. I use Lightweight over Calm Spirit.

    Last slot go for a knowledge/detection perk, good options are Empathy, Bond, Spinechill, or Alert.
    You can also take Distortion if you find you can't play around BBQ or Nurse's Calling. Also DIstortion gives you the most important thing in the game: knowledge of the killer's perks. That way you know what you need to do to play around the killer's detection abilities.

    I always play stealth but I admit it's very challenging, I have much to learn, but this is what works for me.

    As SuicideFox said, Distortion is _never _situational. It is always useful because it will always tell you what perks the killer is running for detection.

    Application of spine chill is going to be tricky for those new to it. Once it lights up you know the killers coming or is close by. Move out of sight but try and read the direction there coming from. Try and face the gen from an angle they can't see you. Avoid sprinting so you leave no tracks.
    Premonition is a weaker version of spine chill that gives yout the direction of a killer close by. But its cooldown is less reliable then just spine chill lighting up when hes heading your direction. 

    Beware spine chill does not work against cloaked wraiths or tier 1 myers. So keep your eyes open even if spine chill isnt active. With stake out is pretty nice combo to as you cash in those stacks for extra gen progression if you don't always hit greats.

    Iron will is insane against killer who use audio to tracks as your pained moan can be quite loud and making shaking killer hard sometimes impossible.

    Lithe + dance with me is insanely strong if you fake going a direction and run around the other side of a loop.

    My favorite stealth pony is LW+DwM+QnQ+Lithe. I can easily juke killers and hide in lockers. That said, it's not full proof. Surprisingly, Sprint Burst and LW make a great team as your tracks become disappear in a flash when you get out.

    Overall, Iron Will(or calm spirit) and Urban Evasion are a must for most strong Stealth Builds.

    Another fun perk build I haven't tested much yet is focused on Aura reading. Dark Sense, Alert, Aftercare, and Premonition/Spine Chill (or slap on Calm Spirit even). Dark Sense and Alert let you see the killer from anywhere when you finish a gen or the killer does a break option. Aftercare lets you see allies from anywhere after healing or unhooking them. This leads you to see potential allies and also if they are being chased by the killer. Premonition and Spine Chill are for when the killer isn't doing any of those things and are coming to your general direction instead. You never want to be in a chase so it'd be best to not be in one. Calm Spirit is mainly of the random chance you play against a doctor or a clown. Either way, this playstyle is seeing the killer and reacting appropriately. You see them but they don't see you. At least, that's the general idea.

    I always use Urban Evasion, Self Care, Spine Chill and Dark Sense. These help me move away from a gen when the killer comes and plan a sneaky retreat in the opposite direction to the killer when I finish a gen.

    That’s my build except I swap Self Care for balanced. Usually survive
