    I run a really off meta build on the survivor side with Ace in the Hole, Detective's Hunch, and Stake Out and then the fourth perk just gets switched out a lot.

    As a suvivor: Bond / Wake Up
    As a killer: Remember Me / Devour Hope

    BOND
  • BaconMuncher9BaconMuncher9 Member Posts: 31
    For teamwork: Leader, Street Wise,

    All of Quentin's perks, but I also have quite a soft spot for No Mither. I know it really needs a buff, but it's still so much fun. Adds actual tension to survivor play that you can't always get otherwise.

    Survivor

    For teamwork: Leader, Street Wise, Vigil, and something like Up The Ante or Open Handed.

    When I'm not being a teammate: perks like Wake Up, Up The Ante, Open Handed, OoO, Sole Survivor, Sabatour, and a bunch of other perks.

    Killer

    Devour Hope or The Third Seal, and then a mixture of perks like Overcharge, thanatophobia, Hangman's Trick, and a few others.

    I actually don't use any meta perks except sometimes Self Care.

    i like alert & technician a lot, i only play on feng w/ her unique perks but with selfcare

  • OneAngryRoosterOneAngryRooster Member Posts: 13

    I don't know if it's a meta perk but I absolutely love Premonition.
    It's saved my ass so many times. It pretty much allows me to spot Wraith or Freddy before they spot me. If I know which general direction they're coming from and they don't know that I have the perk, I generally can scurry away or hide until they leave.

    No Mither Premenition Spine Chill saboteur epic cumbo

  • MringasaMringasa Member Posts: 978

    Kindred when I'm playing in lower Ranks to give the newer and more inexperienced players extra information when I'm on a hook.

    Right now loving Technician so I can polish up my skillchecks and start powering through Ruin better. Has kept me hidden so many times since I started using it.

    Empathy, Botany Knowledge combo is rather nice at times. When I want to play a pure Altruism build they work well together since I solo queue. Add in We'll Make It (that's the one for faster healing on unhooks?) and I can rack up some nice points pretty quickly.

    All of Dwight’s perks (yes even prove thyself go ahead and judge me)
  • AjaxGuntersonAjaxGunterson Member Posts: 40

    Balanced landing, everyone is sleeping on it and I can't figure out why.

  • AshleyWBAshleyWB Member Posts: 4,062
    HOPE (whenever I am still alive when the gens are done) Survivor movement feels much smoother. Its a feel good perk rather than one which is just particularly useful.
  • CrtKazzCrtKazz Member Posts: 214
    1.) balanced landing (my favorite exhaustion perk and I can actually lose the killer with it or create distance) also with the exhaustion nerfs this will still be viable because it has a passive while you’re on cooldown. 
    2.) pharmacy (so much better than self care in terms of healing speed and I’m a plunderer at heart)
    3.) plunderers instincts (see above but I rarely put these together on a build it seems redundant)
    4.) Streetwise (omg why are people not using this more? If you are working on a gen with someone else your toolbox charge stays up soooo much longer. Also pairs well with 2 and 3)
    5.) lightweight/technician (depends on what type of stealth I want to focus on)
  • CorianderCoriander Member Posts: 1,069

    Spine Chill and Lightweight are my favorites. Aside from those I usually run Botany and Self Care, though trying to do without SC now. I take Lithe instead, and replace Botany with random stuff: Technician, Plunderer's, Kindred <- real fun for teammates, and the like.

    No one left behind and we're gonna live forever are my go to blood point combo if I have to swf, combine with borrowed time and "we'll make it" to really get things going.
    Boil over and DS look like they're gonna be a good combo, struggling will be very powerful for anyone who isn't the obsession.

  • TheTimeMachineTheTimeMachine Member Posts: 229
         I run Sloppy Butcher on a lot of my Trials as Killer. (I liked it before/after buff). It always made me tense as a Survivor to see a thick trail of Red following me; It’s satisfying when you’re the one following it.
  • nooxetnooxet Member Posts: 87

    I like running Monstrous Shrine on my Leatherface build so if I happen to down someone close to basement they get into a very bad situation.

  • Daveo_U_BDaveo_U_B Member Posts: 5

    Object of Obsession and Stake Out. I can mind game a killer really well with Object of Obsession.

  • MezzaMindMezzaMind Member Posts: 39

    I like to run Bond, Balanced landing, borrowed time (for some reason not many people take BT) and the 4th is just dependent on how I'm feeling really

  • PoweasPoweas Member Posts: 5,873
    1. Empathy (lets you know where the killer is if anyone is getting chased and lets you know if the killer has lost them
    2. Iron will (my favourite perk)
    3. Calm spirit (the crows not screaming in my ear is really nice plus some killer in my rank try to find me using the moving crows which is actually smart)
    4. No mither (the builds with it makes the game a whole lot scarier)
    5. Technician (you can repair right next to them and they wouldn't hear)
  • RagingCalmRagingCalm Member Posts: 408

    @Poweas I use Empathy, Iron Will and No Mither for the same reasons as you. Neat.
    I used Technician for a while, but never had anything like that. Approximately how close can they be without hearing you? I may test in a kyf.
    I also may start using Calm Spirit when it gets buffed. It would be great if crows actually were a threat to you. You can walk right by them without it and not startle them.

  • ChiChi Member Posts: 774

    Empathy, Balanced Landing, We'll Make It aaand Botany Knowledge.

    You can be unheard unless they go 16m next to you (at tier 3). It would be golden in high ranks but in low ranks, the killers just walk up to a gen whether they hear it or not so it's useless in low ranks. If they get within 16 metres of you, they'll hear it. And yh the second they buff calm spirit it's going straight into my Claudette build I'm probably going to replace SB cause I can loop/survive just as well without it. Ima use Calm spirit, Iron will, Self care, and Adrenaline or Lithe or Urban idk.

    I really enjoy Pharmacy. P3 Feng, when I’m alone I just farm medkits with Ace in the hole, pharmacy, and plunderers instinct.

    I really like Dwight’s perks. Since I leveled up Feng finally I feel like technician would go great with his 3
  • MegMain98MegMain98 Member Posts: 2,824
    Sometimes unbreakable if the killer is a slugger but I had to get rid of it because I rarely used it. Bond, lithe, and balanced landing I also like. Would urban evasion be considered a meta perk?
  • azazerazazer Member Posts: 446
    Quick and quiet. Nothing like a killer right behind you and he loses you because he didn't hear the locker
  • JFoxJFox Member Posts: 41

    Ace in the hole

  • guest602guest602 Member Posts: 149
    I love iron will so much you can lose the killer so easily
