What perks do you run?

SnailTeaSnailTea Member Posts: 20

I'm currently not working towards a build in particular, I'm levelling Laurie atm for DS but I have no ideal build. What are your favourite perks? Mine are bond, selfcare, maybe kindred and urban evasion.

    Spinechill, Iron will, Balanced Landing, and then a wide variety of perks, which can be Aftercare, Small Game, Bond, Adrenaline or Object of Obsession.

    inner strength love me some 8 sec heals

    ds you would be crazy not to run this perk with all those tunnelers these days

    dead hard when it works

    balanced landing is also fun ussualy swap it with dead hard

    iron will you know why

  • muffinoobmuffinoob Member Posts: 6

    Well it sounds like your build is for stealth or just knowing where your teammates are.

    I guess Sprint Burst, Lightweight, Bond and spine chill

  • CleviteClevite Member Posts: 4,335

    Yeah, I'm an iron will, adrenaline, dh user.

    My fourth perk is usually switched between, kindred, BT, Were going make it, or spine chill.

    Kindred, we're gonna live forever, lithe, stakeout. Gotta farm those bp you know. Sometimes I swap out Wglf and stakeout for ds and tenacity.

    I use autodidact, bond, spine chill and an exhaustion perk. Not optimal by all means but fun for me.

    My fav and most performing overall is DS DH BT and IW

    It depends on how I wanna play. If I feel like helping teammates I run [Bond, Autodidact, Borrowed Time, Adrenaline]

    If I want to do gens [Repressed Alliance, Sprint Burst, Poised, Dark Sense]

    And just for when I want to do both [Iron Will, Resilience, Spine Chill, Empathy]

    I like to use spine chill so I cannot be surprised so easily, dead hard that works 1/4 of times. Repressed alliance in case of pop that's really popular atm and finally soul guard for those rare occasions they might come to play. If killer slugs.

    Spinechill, Q&Q, Detective's Hunch, and the last perk changes based on need.

  • DBD78DBD78 Member Posts: 2,883

    Bond, DS, Inner Strength, Tenacity

    Lithe -- it's the best exhaustion perk since Dead Hard is buggy. Sprint Burst requires management to 99 it and encourages folks to not run. Balanced is pretty nerfed on a lot of maps. If you just look for a nearby vault point when you work a gen, totem, etc., you can use it consistently.

    Empathy -- it's map wide and gives you a ton of information. It's a great replacement for self-care as you can find people who need healing and have them heal you. It also shows you where the action is occurring on the map. It's especially useful against Legion and Plague who almost always have folks in a state of injury. And, if anyone runs No Mither, you can keep an eye on them all game (I don't recommend No Mither, but in solo you sometimes see it).

    Urban Evasion -- I know people troll folks who run it, but it has saved my team so many times. You can use it to get through Tunnelhead's poop. You can use it to pick up the slugged for 4k survivor without being spotted. You can also juke barbecue easily by running 1 direction and urbaning another after 4 seconds.

    Iron Will -- killers expect you to make sounds when they injure you. Iron Will gives you the opportunity to make them have to work harder to find you. Combine it with things like Lithe and you can get away and not be found. Remember, if a killer is looking for you and not finding you, that is just as good as chase time.

    Balanced landing, autodidact, detective's hunch and soul guard.

    Decided to try out some perks I never used before, and this "build" came up. It stuck and I'm enjoying it ^^

  • DoultimeDoultime Member Posts: 82

    Kindred all day every day

    WGLF also if im hungry for them bps

  • 53nation53nation Member Posts: 679

    Yesterday I was mostly running around with Inner Strength, Kindred, Prove thyself, and Spine chill. I like.

  • PryzmPryzm Member Posts: 393

    Killer - My go-to perks are BBQ (I love bloodpoints and will always default to it for more)....that's about it. I often like to run Devour Hope, Ruin, Thana, Sloppy, I'm all Ears (helps on some maps due to colorblindness), Blood Warden, Thrill (more blood points again), M&A (on some killers), Distressing (On some), and even Brutal Strength - depending on the build or offering.

    Survivor - WGLF (I already said I love bloodpoints and survivor gets shafted on them, so this is a must), Dance With Me, Detective's Hunch, Inner Strength, Botany Knowledge, Empathy, Lithe (sometimes), Plunder

    I don't care much for meta perks. I run what I feel like at the time.

  • TheVVitchTheVVitch Member Posts: 224

    Been loving my Cheryl build:

    Lithe: This is my choice exhaustion perk and is useful wherever there is a window or pallet. Killers can sometimes drop chase once it's used as they see chasing you as a waste of time.

    Plunderer's Instinct: Possibly my favorite perk right now. Being able to loot chests for that clutch skeleton key, purple medkit, or flashlight is one of the best feelings in the game. I have gotten hatch twice in situations where I would have most certainly been killed since I started using this perk. I also have gotten some clutch flashlight saves. If I find an item i don't need, I just leave the higher rarity item in the open chest for an ally to pick up should they need it. The utility of this perk is insanely underrated imo.

    Decisive Strike: I like running this perk when I play with my lower rank friends. The lower rank of the killer, the more likely it will come in handy. If I was playing solo queue, I would probably replace this perk with Iron Will or Unbreakable

    Blood Pact: This imo is a stronger empathy and a GREAT solo queue perk. It sacrifices being able to see all injured survivors' auras for both you and the obsession being able to see each other if one of you is injured. Your ally being able to see your location is some great utility for solo queue.

    Iron Will and Adrenaline are pretty consistent in my builds. I run We'll Make It a lot too; it lets me save my MedKits for self-healing in a pickle, and it makes healing off hook so fast that if someone lets me do it there, I can usually full heal before the killer returns.

    I also LOVE Tenacity, and I literally almost escaped a trial crawling across Yeehaw Town during EGC using it. But in general, just the ability to move and recover at the same time and also move faster if the killer goes on a slugging spree is great. I wish I had it on more chars.

    Honorable mentions: Balanced Landing, Kindred (if Solo), Resilience, Deliverance.

    On Killer side, I fairly consistently run Iron Grasp and Unrelenting. I'm All Ears is also a favorite, and Mad Grit just cracks me up. I tend to run Thrilling Tremors or Corrupt Intervention as well, depending on what I have on the killer. I'm still toying with builds and don't have tons of teachables unlocked on this side.

  • chase131119chase131119 Member Posts: 839

    DS, Balanced Landing, Iron will, and BT

  • lucid4444lucid4444 Member Posts: 682

    Survivor - Kindred, Sprint Burst, Adrenaline or WGLF, Borrowed Time

    Killer - Discordance, Pop, BBQ & Chili, + one other perk. Once I unlock Corrupt Intervention, it'll get tight.

  • MewMew Member Posts: 1,704

    iron will, head on, quick and quiet, and a random fourth perk (usually ds, red herring, autodidact, or BT)

  • IhatelifeIhatelife Member Posts: 5,069

    Soul guard, unbreakable, DS and balanced landing - Awesome build in crap situations <3
