Ok all you pros

I have been a ruin crutch leaning, baby killer for two years now and looking for advice on a new build for my wraith.

Thinking corrupt, thrilling tremors, discordance, and pop. Or, corrupt, surge, surveillance, and something else... Maybe pop? Seems weird running that work surge though.

Give me suggestions please.

    @goat10em Corrupt is really good for "funneling" survivors toward you at the start of the match. This helps find people faster instead of running around the map wasting time. Pop w/ surveillance is a pretty decent combo as well. You could probably throw in a BBQ & Chili for that extra useful info and bloodpoints. Sloppy Butcher would be good since Wraith is an M1 killer. When it comes to builds, try different things out to see what works best for your playstyle and the killer you're playing.

    Also, Spirit Fury and Enduring is also really good on Wraith to force pallets down early. If you walk through a pallet while cloaked and they stun you, they just wasted the pallet. You can then uncloak for an easier hit since they're out in the open without a pallet.

    Moris. Or switch to survivor.

    Drop Wraith, play a viable killer.

  • EZ5kEZ5k Member Posts: 233

    Drop Wraith, pick up Spirit, same vein and style, but better at literally everything

    Play him with no perks & add-ons.

    If you lose, it's normal, so you don't feel bad. If you win, well, that's entirely survivors' fault or you're just too skillful.

    Not to mention you won't get hatemails :)

    PS: i do it from time to time with any killers

    BBQ and Chili is a necessity, due to the fact of poor map pressure for him, you want to be getting to survivors asap.

    Nurses calling is an underrated perk on wraith, the ability to sneak up on survivors with alot running self care or bringing a med kit is great.

    Hex: Devour hope is another underrated perk on Wraith, and often survivors don't clean it at high ranks due to it possibly being Hex: Haunted Ground. It is a big risk and reward perk, but if you get up to 3 tokens the insta down is something else on him.

    Finally, I'd say either sloppy butcher or discordance for your last perk. Both work extremely well with Wraith.

    For add ons, use an add on that decreases time going into invisibility and and anothertone that decreases time coming out of invisibility.

    I have 2 Wraith builds and both do really well. And yes ... I played these builds WITHOUT Ruin always.

    Chase Build:

    Spirit Fury, Enduring, Pop, BBQ Addons: Shadow Dance / Windstorm

    Hit and Run:

    Nurses, Pop, BBQ, Save the best for the Last Addons: Windstorm / Blind Warrior (Green)

    I personally only used Ruin at Killers that needed a "preparation" such as Myers, Trapper, Hag, Oni. But its definatly not requiered. It is more like a psychological "need" of Ruin what the most ppl have. They feel naked without it and I can TOTALLY understand that. I have the same feeling with BBQ, not because of the BP, I love to find my next target instantly after I hooked someone, I hate to run around without a clue and try to find survivors.

    Run slug wraith with deerstalker, knock out, nurses, and sloppy

    Well...do you want early game pressure or are you okay with a late game type pressure?

    Edit - I've deleted my first comment, as I missed an important detail in yours, so if you've already read it, ignore what I said.

    On my wraith I run BBQ, Surge and either surveillance and nurses or spirit fury+enduring or save the best for last and enduring depending on how aggressively I want to play and whether I've been annoyed by pallet campers. I play without addons, but the clappers are always fun to use

    I dont have corrupt intervention perk, but i almost got enough shards to unlock another killer and its probably gonna be the plague anyway.

    Corrupt intervention seems good on wraith cause hes cloacked.

  • Wubsyy__Wubsyy__ Member Posts: 116

    Sloppy Butcher - Land a hit and not only does it take longer to heal, but it makes blood more prominent.

    A Nurse's Calling - See people while they're healing through the Sloppy Butcher.

    Spirit Fury - Take pallet stuns, break the pallets, the one that gets dropped on you after the proc instantly gets destroyed.

    Enduring/Discordance/BBQ - Depends on what you like. Personally I bring either Discordance or BBQ because I like vision on survs, but Enduring is synonymous with Spirit Fury.

  • DepressedClownMainDepressedClownMain Member Posts: 924

    Wraith has a ton of map pressure so maybe fix chase instead of a ton of regression. Imo STBFL is a great perk on him because you surprise attack people and have a bigger chance of hitting them again with the smaller cooldown. Nurse's is a great pick on him as well. I would go with Pop, discordance, Save the Best and Nurses/Sloppy

  • goat10emgoat10em Member Posts: 750

    I'm really liking the surveillance / surge combination.

  • AcculllaAccullla Member Posts: 984

    It's great for tracking and works particularly well on stealth killers like wraith who can down a survivor before they run far enough away from a gen. One thing that's a bit tedious to keep in mind is the cooldown on surge - sometimes you have to wait a couple of seconds before downing a survivor in order to wait for the cooldown to run out and get value out of the perk. You get used to that though.

  • CleviteClevite Member Posts: 4,335

    Survivors didn't take your ruin dude. Devs made the changes. Most high ranks didn't even ask for it.

    Throw a tantrum if you want but don't hide behind the fallacy of " oh they did this to mean. I will now do this to them."

  • MonikaMonika Member Posts: 113

    Pop, Nurses, Sloppy, and a final perk of your choice, dying light I can suggest.

  • goat10emgoat10em Member Posts: 750

    I despise DL but love your other suggestions. May go with those 3 and thana maybe? I also hate thana so i don't know lol.

  • SaitamfedSaitamfed Member Posts: 1,525

    @goat10em I am not a pro but... those are good perks for Wraith

    Barbeque & Chilli (bloodpoints, and if you can use the aura reading part it will save you a lot of time)

    A nurse's calling (Survivors that are used to heal as soon as possible will become your new favourite, they relly too much in terror radius and when they spot you're going there, it will be too late for them)

    Surveillance (This will help you to know which generators are being worked, since old maps have a poor design) If you have not Surveillalnce, there is an ultra rare add-on for Wraith called All seeing.

    Also, I highly recommend the following add-ons:

    Windstorm & Swift Hunt.

  • MonikaMonika Member Posts: 113

    Its prettt much personal choice that 4th perk, from BBQ to bitter murmur, there's not nuch left to synergize a 4th perk with those 3, thana would be good for increased slow to healing really benefiting an increase to his invisible terror radius, but if you don't like to you don't have to. Thana would be the best synergize to follow. Maybe instead of thana or dying you could do something like...I'm all ears, or give yourself better starting capabilities with corrupt.

    Watch the second game, starts at 06:20. You're welcome

    My Wraith, I run Corrupt, Spies, BBQ, and a random 4th depending on my add ons I am using but Surveillance is usually in the rotation.

    One thing I recently learned as playing killer is to play for fun and accept that you’re not going to win all the time. It’s just how the game is, and the sooner you accept it, the better time you’ll have.

    Wraith is my main (Still newish at the game) and I find that add ons are more important that the perks. You should always spend the blood points to get the add on that increases your movement speed while cloaked. It really helps with pressuring gens and looping survivors.

    If a survivor is obviously a good looper, cloak and head to the gens and target someone else. It is also nice to bodyblock them since you can cloak, out run them to a pallet or doorway and un-cloak in their face.

    Another thing that I think is fun/funny, is when a survivor is in a room with a generator and you uncloak in the doorway and they have no escape. I love standing there watching them run in circles. You can usually do it on the second floor of Hawkins and on Michales maps in one of the houses.

    Another good add on is the one that lets you see through walls when you’re close to the survivors. It’s really helpful in finding immersive players.

    Finally, the Coxcombed Clapper makes your bell silent which is really nice for grabbing them off of generators and to instill fear in them because once they realize they can’t hear you, they’ll be paranoid the whole match.

    As far as perks, I like Whispers, it really helps to find survivors. I also use the one that reduces the cool down on your M1 strike (I’m still noob so this helps) and I don’t have it yet but Lightborn will help since Wraith is weak to flashlights. NOED is good if they don’t cleanse all the totems, mainly because Wraith isn’t great at ending loops, which is why it’s best to always go for the weakest survivor and never take bait from strong loopers. Ignore the survivor who comes to find you and starts twerking or flashlight clicking. They will just waste your time.

    As an avid Wraith player, I can easily get by at all ranks with the same set-up.

    Brutal Strength, Enduring, Spirit Fury, BBQ

    You keep pressure by constantly having someone on hook, forcing them to go save while someone else is getting downed.

    Still having trouble? Run Coxcombed Clapper or Bone Clapper with "The Ghost" Soot to get the jump on them even easier.

  • kurgan8282kurgan8282 Member Posts: 264

    that is the most scary thing about the near future, many killers will do this if adjustments wont be made shortly after this patch.

    As a killer I play as Freddy so it would not do any good for me but I can imagine all killers with no gen pressure will start to tunnel and use insidious

  • goat10emgoat10em Member Posts: 750

    Taking the approach of ######### your pallets lol. I like it.
