- additional blinks addons of nurse
Absolutely busted, not only you cover much more distance even without range addons, but also you got as survivor 0 chance to win a chase. Remove it, it's healthier for DbD.

- Prayers beats addon of spirit 
Seriously, this addon is busted. Getting free grabs at gens is stupid af. Takes 0 skill to use and has an reward like NOED. Even more than noed, cuz u don't even waste time chasing.

    Prayer beads should be left alone, however nurses extra blinks should go.
    Why tho? Isn't it absolutely stupid to get free grabs over and over again?

    I don't think so, because its jumpscarey and also, I don't find it happens every match. And if they do have prayer beads I normally just judge how far she is before I start the gen. I honestly don't like feeling safe on gens that's why I like vs Myers as well.

    You’re both entitled. Grow up. As for the discussion, I say changing the multi blinks for something else should happen. Multi blinks just kind of takes the skill out of nurse. The prayer beads I don’t think should go, however I wouldn’t be against them making it an ultra rare addon versus just very rare.

    Prayer beads, while absurdly strong, do still require skill as you can't see the survivor so you have to guess between 1-4 placements where the survivor you're trying to grab is. Granted guessing wrong is still usually a free hit, but still. I mean you can always just gen tap until you know who the killer is just to be safe...

    The only thing I think they should do with Prayer Beads is make it a pink add-on, swap it with Father's Glasses.

    you can defeat prayer beads with good reaction times

    I have to agree, that these AddOns might not on the best spot right now. But I wouldn't completely remove them. Prayers jus tmight be a better fit as an UR than an VR compared to father's glasses and Nurse should only have one additional blink AddOn as a UR as well. But Nurse is complicated. Her AddOns need a complete overhaul in the first place. Worth of it's own discussion.

    You don't have to guess that much, because you will realize it, when you bump into that survivor, which gives away their position.

    Survivors have collision, you know exactly on which position they are sitting. It isn't skill.

    I agree with OP on that, Prayer Beads in its current state is not o.k. The only "counter" would be to gen tap and that's of course out of the question. Make the Walk more quiet but not completely silent.

    I LOVE Prayer Beads Bracelet, so it pains me to say it, but I agree. It's just too strong. I don't think though it should be changed in a way that makes Spirit Walk quieter, but not completely silent, as you suggest. Rather, I think it should come with some downside, as many strong addons do. Maybe slower Spirit Walk speed or shorter duration, possibly a longer cooldown on missed attacks coming out of it. Not sure. But the jumpscare factor of it is priceless, so I'd leave the main effect as it is.

    It's not a strong add-on, it's a too strong add-on. Sorry, but since it doesn't have a counter, you can't simply add a negative effect. In order for it to be a strong, but balanced add-on, the total silence has to go.

    There are people being bad at playing nurse.
    Nurse needs a rework, not a buff or a nerf.
    She needs to stay top tier, but easier to play, while there has to be limits for her.

    Spirit is fine, git gud.

    One unbalanced thing doesn't justify the existence of another unbalanced thing in the game. Every unbalanced item/add-on/etc. should be reworked.

    No. It's fun for both killer and survivors. Just needs balancing.

    There actually are counters to it by the way. The moment you realize she's using the Bracelet, you can adjust. Look around before jumping on a gen or totem, wait until someone's injured or hooked, and then start repairing. Some perks can also be helpful: Premonition, Spine Chill, Empathy, Alert, OoO, maybe some others too.

    How about we first buff useless addons of other killers?

    Well, I wouldn't consider a free grab/hook fun.

    There are so many places on maps where that isn't possible

    That is such a big waste of time that giving the killer a free grab/hook would be better.

    These perks don't necesseraly help against that add-on. Also, why should survivors need to bring a certain perk just to counter a completely unbalanced add-on?

    The useless add-ons need to be buffed/reworked, of course. That doesn't mean that a completely unbalanced add-on should stay in the game longer than necessary.

    Run empathy, for the love of all things holy. Not even just vs spirit, it will improve your map awareness a thousand fold the second that someone gets tagged. You will know where the killer's vicinity is, you will know which way they are likely going by seeing where the injured survivor goes (and consequently, as they do things like throw down pallets, you will have confirmation,) and you can play m1 simulator to your heart's content. As a bonus you can even rotate around the map to be as far away from the chase as possible if you're too much of a coward to stay in one place.
