      Really wish they could give trapper something else than just his traps to use, something passive that helps him keep pressure on the map. He’s just so 1 dimensional, either you run into the trap you didn’t see and lose the chase, or he doesn’t have a trap around there and it’s a normal M1 chase.

      @@Modeus. Well, Ace in the Hole is a better gambling perk, especially since it works with Dramaturgy. Plunderers instinct is at best 3 extra spins. Ace in the Hole is 3 spins per Dramaturgy(which already is a spin on the wheel): 1 on if you get 1 or 2 addons, 1 on the addon rarity and the final one to get the same addon twice. Has only happened once to me over the course of my entire DBD career.

    *Also in case its not shown in the video, the lich has a "2nd mori" in the same sense as the executioner does, if a survivor on death hook has attuned with the hand or eye of vecna, vecna can do a 'artifact retrieval' Which is a quick mori*

      I can confidently say they didn't forget. In these killer/survivor showcases the survivors are goofing off while helping showcase killer abilities and animations. Prime example being the Dwight (I believe?) who gestured Otz to kick a gen under the guise of showing the gen kicking animation only for the trap to go off. Also, everyone just playing their lute at every possible moment. Still really funny, just don't think it should be assigned to absentmindedness when it's absolutely intentional!

    For anyone that doesnt understand the Vecna power, Vecna basically has 4 powers.
    Fly: You can fly over obstacles + a speedboost
    Flight of the Damned: You conjure spectral entities (kinda like artist crows)
    Mage Hand: You block Pallets
    Dispelling Sphere: You create a big sphere where you can see auras and disable magic items from survivors.
    Survivors have magic items against Vecna, which give them random positive effects or items.

      I see that they'll probably need to buff Vecna in some cooldwdown and durations.
      "Fly" has a looong cooldown between using it and being able to attack, which allows survivors to usually go back around to the pallet/window quite safely. Same thins with Mage hand, it's just too short of a duration holding the pallet right now.

    When the teaser got released, me and a bunch of people said "oh yeah, that looks like a Beholder."
    At the same time, when I saw it was a DnD collab, I said my first thought was that they couldn't get Stranger Things to approve Vecna, so they went to Wizards to use their version instead.
    I was half joking but it's so funny to see I was right.
    The magic items are sick, this looks like the most fun killer to play against on the Survivor side since Wesker.

      Eh, not really. The counter items arent that strong.

    I agree too that this is the most diverse set of adons we've had and I've been only playing this game for two years, sometimes browns are almost like something you ignore always and purple and iridescent are the strongest without downsides, but this is the best ptb's addons I've ever seen . Btw the change of the cosmetics menu to find certain packs are a cool way of visualization, I love that, I think Behaviour is aiming in the right direction

    I loved everything about this killer until I noticed he has ears. Now I can't even play the game.
