Wraith is B+. Here's why.
Alot of discussion revolving around him, and since his addons looked like it made his power way more interesting, I decided to give him a go.
Without a doubt in my mind he is at least a B+. There are way too many misconceptions about his power that people believe to be true. Here are some of them-
- Wraith isn't a good stealth killer, since his cloak shimmers
Nah, he is. And you don't even have to be on an indoors map to be stealthy. Even if you're on a wide open map like Red Forest, that fact is that the lack of TR gives survivors less time to react, and if they see you early, your increased movement speed helps you catch up anyways. One thing alot of people look over on stealth killers is that they all punish the injured. The current meta-game for all survivors is to ignore basically everything besides hook saves and generators to get through the game as fast as possible. The thing is, stealth killers can get really easy first hits, or better yet, find the survivor out of position. Injured against the wraith is a death sentence, since you will have little time to react, especially if he is body blocking effectively.
2.His power doesn't help in a chase
His power can be just as effective, if not more effective, as spirits. You hit a survivor, they run, you cloak, you catch up to them quickly, then you down them. Yes, he has to eat pallets. You know who else has to eat pallets? Literally everyone besides Nurse and Spirit. So many people think that ending chases is the most important attribute in a killer, but the fact is, that is secondary. The strategy of down, hook, repeat is predictable, and survivors will be able to take advantage of how predictable it is. Applying pressure across the map is more important, since its less predictable, and its more pressure on all survivors at one time. If you are having issues, put on Spirit Enduring and Fury (lol).
3.His mobility is not great
His base mobility is about the same movement speed of legion. What makes even better though, is the fact that it makes him stealthy. Even if his mobility is just a bit more above average, that is still alot more pressure you can apply across the map, not even taking into consideration that he has really, REALLY strong speed addons. There are killers that uh.. would kill for that mobility.
Is there any crucial information that i'm missing that makes Wraith terrible?
Tldr; Wraith has great stealth potential, mobility, and can be totally unpredictable
