Mettle of Man as useable fun perk?
Mettle of man is in the current state not worth using it, but the best perk to represent the chaos of the evil dead movies. I never watched the series, cause in Germany it was never available on Netflix (?). But i watched the movies and Mettle of Man represents so well this chaos.
If playing the records of the necronomicon and awake this evil presence, who kill all of Ash Friends or spelling some words wrong to awake an undead army of death 😂
It was everytime a action, Ash never really thought about in the movies, but later on have an big impact and let everyone suffer. So i dont understand why this perk should be unreliable. It should punish the survivor for using it, an real plot twist like in the movies, trapped by the evil.
So i would suggest lower the required stacks (safe unhook + protection hits) and heavily increase the punishment for using it.
Of course the aura should still be viewable for the killer afterwards, outside this 16 Meter range, but additional i would say add the broken status for the end of the trial.
This way mom wouldnt get you an extra health state, its more like it would take one. It would be a perk with heavy consequences for using it and would make it fair and fun to play. Maybe also bound it to the condition that its just usable if the survivor wasn't hooked before, but reduce the stacks to 2. So its kinda unreliable, but atleast possible to use.
