New Survivor - Aestri Yazar

New Survivor Perks

Mirrored Illusion

This perk activates after completing a total of 50% worth of repair progress on generators.
Press the ability button 2 when next to a totem, chest, generator or exit gate to spawn a static illusion that lasts for 100/110/120 seconds.
Then, the perk deactivates.

Bardic Inspiration

Press the ability button 1 while standing and motionless to enter the "performance" interaction that lasts up to 15 seconds and empowers Survivors within 16 meters. Roll a d20. This effect lasts for 90 seconds if the performance is completed.
When the ability is cancelled or the performance completes, it goes on cooldown for 110/100/90 seconds.

  • 1 | You scream, but nothing happens
  • 2-10 | skill checks give +1% progress
  • 11-19 | skill checks give +2% progress
  • 20 | skill checks give +3% progress

Still Sight

After standing still for 6/5/4 seconds, this perk activates.
Until you start moving, you see the aura of the Killer as well as all generators and chests within 24 meters.

New Killer - The Lich

Killer Power

Bound with the skin and flesh of men, the Book is packed with spells both forbidden and wicked.
To select a Spell, hold the Ability Button to open the Spell selection. The Lich has access to 4 different Spells:

  • Mage Hand: Creates a magical hand that lifts a downed pallet or blocks an upright pallet for 4 seconds.
  • Flight of the Damned: Conjures 5 flying spectral entities that can pass through obstacles and injure Survivors.
  • Dispelling Sphere: Casts a moving invisible sphere that reveals Survivors and temporarily disables their Magic Items.
  • Fly: Gain a flying speed for a short period of time, allowing you to travel a long distance quickly and move over vaults and pallets.

SPECIAL ITEM: MAGIC ITEMS

Treasure Chests found around the map can contain Magic Items. Each Survivor can equip up to two Magic Items at once: one pair of Boots and one pair of Gauntlets. These Magic Items are each connected to a specific Spell, and activate when The Lich casts that spell.

  • Boots/Gauntlets of the Interloper: The Survivor sees the aura of pallets affected by Mage Hand and gains Haste for 3 seconds.
  • Boots/Gauntlets of the Nightwatch: The Survivor can see the auras of the spectral entities conjured by Flight of the Damned.
  • Boots/Gauntlets of the Archivist: The Survivor can see the Dispelling Sphere.
  • Boots/Gauntlets of the Skyguard: The Survivor can see The Lich's aura during Fly and for a few seconds after.

SPECIAL ITEMS: HAND & EYE OF VECNA

Rarely, Survivors can instead find the Hand or Eye of Vecna in a Treasure Chest. When picked up and used, Survivors gain a special ability while at full health. Using one of these special abilities costs the Survivor a health state and reveals their location with Killer Instinct for 3 seconds.

  • Hand of Vecna: When doing a Fast Locker Entry, the Survivor is teleported to a further locker.
  • Eye of Vecna: When doing a Fast Locker Exit, the Survivor cannot be seen by The Lich and gains Haste for 15 seconds.

New Killer Perks

Weave Attunement

When any item becomes depleted for the first time each match, it is dropped. You see the auras of dropped items.
Survivors within 12 meters of dropped items have their auras revealed to you.
When a Survivor picks up a Survivor item, they suffer the Oblivious status effect for 20/25/30 seconds.
Oblivious prevents Survivors from hearing or being affected by the Killer's Terror Radius.

Languid Touch

When a Survivor within 36 meters of you scares a crow, they gain the Exhausted status effect for 6/8/10 seconds.
This perk has a 20-second cooldown.
Exhausted prevents Survivors from activating exhausting perks.

Dark Arrogance

Increases the duration you are blinded and the duration of pallet stuns by 25%.
Increases regular vault speed by 15/20/25%.
