For me, it was Lithe.
Mine was Sprint Burst, and I mean the old Sprint Burst. Once the timer was up you could sprint again mid chase.
How did killers ever catch us?
Mine was lithe, I got it from the shrine when I first started DBD and unlocked it for Dwight
dead hard because it had the words "avoid damage" in the description
Lithe and it's still my fav perk to this day 🐷💕
I don't use exhaustion perks. I'm actually good at the video game.
Sprint Burst and Adrenaline at the same time, because Adept Meg.
i used to main Feng when I first started playing
Balance landing, actually. I used it before the "rip balance landing" patch.
Dead hard for me actually, I wanted to grind for WGLF.
Dead Hard because I was a die hard David main when I first got the game.
First ever actually equipped and used was Sprint Burst. Didn’t like it though and didn’t play around with it much.
First I actively used and that for a very long time was Lithe, still my favorite Exhaustion perk (if it wasn’t for the window hits.. but those got at least better again..)
(currently I use Dead Hard and it’s amazing how much more easy and stressfree surv gameplay got due to just having it)
Sprint Burst wasn't an exhaustion perk back then, neither was Balanced Landing.
So technically, even for the veterans, SB or BL is a valid choice, as exhaustion perk became a thing since 1.5.0 AFAIK.
