What Perk buffs do you want to see on Monday?

So part 1 of the dev updater states there is going to be a large number of perks being updated. I hope this is true. What are some of the perks you would like buffed, and how would you like them buffed?

Personally, I would really like Repressed Alliance buffed. It's such a cool perk and has the potential to be Meta if buffed correctly and made more consistent. It could be a very strong counter to Killer slowdown perks if you could use it more often.

I'm hoping they buff it to only having to repair a generator for 30 seconds instead of 60.

    Monstrous Shine because there's no reason for it to stay the way it is any longer.

    Repressed Alliance shouldn't require charging. You use it when you want and then it goes on a cooldown of either 30 or 60 seconds. Then you can use it again. No repairing needed.

    I don't know from where this notion started that all survivor perks must be activated by doing some lengthy action, but it starts to get annoying when most of the new perks have this mechanic. At least come with something more interesting than "repair a generator for 5 million years to activate this very situational perk with an insignificant effect".

    Personally, I would like to see Distorsion and Mettle of Man buffed. For Distorsion I'd like the perk to light up each time your aura is revealed, regardless of the number of tokens and a way to replenish tokens, and for MOM I'd like to see the PTB version(protection hits + unhooks), but with a cooldown for gaining tokens so you can't unhook, take a hit and instantly get 2 tokens. At the very least, remove the horrible drawback for MOM. You basically throw the game to activate it and then get punished for it even more.

    I'm hoping for Brutal Strength

    Right now it's just a feel good perk that rarely does something.

    Even something small like juat upping the % to 30 would change so much

  • lav3lav3 Member Posts: 264

    Personally Whispers, Spies from the shadows. Some old-school perks that help finding survivors.

    And to point other perks which are like 'why do they exist', Sole Survivor, Buckle Up, Overwhelming Presence, Furtive Chase.

    There are too many perks to mention once you try to find out.. Smh

  • SatelitSatelit Member Posts: 942

    I'd like to see Sole Survivor changed,but this perk is so flawed that it needs a new effect entirely.

  • GentlemanFridgeGentlemanFridge Member Posts: 1,992

    Out of sheer curiosity what they’d do with them:

    Monstrous Shrine


    Overwhelming Presence

    Unnerving Presence

    Hangman’s Trick

    Buckle Up


    Up the Ante

    This Is Not Happening

  • FatallyIconicFatallyIconic Member Posts: 119

    Thats a really good idea, a cooldown would make it a lot less frustrating to use. Because we all have games where we get chased a lot and hooked, and then you don't get a chance to repair gens long enough to activate it.

  • DreadnightDreadnight Member Posts: 93

    Monstrous Shrine

    No mither

    Buckle Up


    Sole Survivor


    Territorial Imperative

  • SnowbawlzzzSnowbawlzzz Member Posts: 1,121

    Every Huntress Perk

    Every Demo Perk


    Trail of Torment

    Fire Up

    Coup De Grace

    Dark Devotion

    Dying Light

    Hangman's Trick

  • Barbarossa2020Barbarossa2020 Member Posts: 871

    Alot of the older killer perks are pretty garbage, combined with their old skill set.

    every gen defense perk

  • SirGandoSirGando Member Posts: 374

    is the update today? I thought tuesday.

  • AneurysmAneurysm Member Posts: 4,442

    Seeing as it's not tied to any character they could just delete it, I'm just sick of how bloodwebs prioritise it, I can have pretty much every killer perk in the game still to unlock on one killer and monstrous shrine will -not- go away until it's tier 3ed.

  • GryzeldaGryzelda Member Posts: 50

    Up the ante

    Any means neccesery

    Boil over

    Off the record

    No mither

    Monstrous Shrine

  • TunnelVisionTunnelVision Member Posts: 1,310

    It's about time noed got buffed tbh..

    Please just remove the Basic Attack condition from Surge and make the cooldown like 20 seconds. That's the biggest killer perk buff I want.

    For survivor, it'd probably be Off the Record. Love the perk, but it's duration is too short imo. Or some way to get tokens back on Distortion.

  • JagoJago Member Posts: 1,418

    Jane's face rework

  • Chilli_man2400Chilli_man2400 Member Posts: 2,111

    I want these perks buffed

    Monstrous shrine



    boil over

    This is not happening

    Sole survivor

    and pretty much every perk that came out from 2016 at the beginning of dbd lifecycle cause almost all the 2016 perks are outdated

  • MooksMooks Member Posts: 9,553

    The dev update/Information Part 2 is today

    PTB is probably Tuesday.

  • SirGandoSirGando Member Posts: 374

    oh, only a ptb. i thought an official update is tomorow. well, guess ill wait a little more to play the game again...

  • MooksMooks Member Posts: 9,553

    Yeah it’s first on PTB and probably live release in around 3 weeks

    I would love it they've changed

    • Predator
    • Shadowborn
    • Hangman trick
    • Monstrous shrine

  • dspaceman20dspaceman20 Member Posts: 3,398

    I hope premonition. It needs love and we have to defeat the dirty spine chill users

  • RaSavage42RaSavage42 Member Posts: 3,227

    Here are some of my ideas on perks and what I feel can be done to them:

    Hangman's Trick... I feel like reverting it back to what it did before would be the way to go

    Ash's perks... Both Flip-Flop and Buckle-Up are not being used due to those two not having more satisfying effects

    Gearhead... Needs to include great skillchecks as well

    Brutal Strength... at least 50% is doable right???

    Beast of Pray... it being tied to Bloodlust isn't good at all, Let it be on timer and that's good enough for me

  • Jacoby2041Jacoby2041 Member Posts: 838

    Wake Up: make gate speed something crazy like 50% or even 100%

    Camaraderie: give an icon to your teammates that tells them you have it, and it should work once per hook state (rather than only the second one)

    Distortion: have a way to earn tokens back

    Hope: activate when the gate is powered or when you're unhooked from your second hook stage (meaning you will die next time you're hooked) whichever comes first

    No One Left Behind: activate when the gates are powered, not only when they're opened

  • BlueberryBlueberry Member Posts: 9,611

    Honestly like 90% of the perks in the game are garbage.

    We need to see like massive waves of perk buffs. They also need to be much heavier handed with the buffs. Most the buffs while nice are still going to leave the perks unused.

  • Friendly_BlendetteFriendly_Blendette Member Posts: 2,355

    Every twin perk, every nemesis perk, every wraith perk, unerving, overwhelming, lightborn needs a rework not a buff, all of freddy's perks, all of slinger's perks except ret cause ya know already got it, every demo perk except surge, all of huntress' perks, all of onis perks, dragons grip, all of ph's perks, deerstalker needs a secondary effect so it isnt just a QOL perk, distressng but its kinda made to be a bad perk, dying light, furative, hangmans, insidious needs a rework not a buff, iron grasp, knockout needs rework not a buff, monstrous, spies needs a rework not a buff unless the buff makes it map wide, stridor needs a rework or a secondary effect, unrelenting.

    Long list but I would say the survivor one is longer

  • RezblazeRezblaze Member Posts: 812

    Honestly? The perks I want buffed the most isn't the garbage perks, but its the perks that are -almost- good.

    Perks like Dragon's Grip are so ######### dragged down by the fact that it has twelve different conditions that make it not function. Its cooldowns especially.
