Dead by Daylight PTB Patch 8.0.0 – Dungeons & Dragons Crossover Chapter

Dead by Daylight has had a series of well-handled crossovers recently, from The Alien to Chucky. The latest chapter, which features Dungeons & Dragons characters, is one of the most interesting (and authentic-feeling) crossovers to date. The new Killer is a classic DnD villain, a Lich, who uses a Spell Book to cast Mage Hand and Fly around the map; the Survivor is a Bard who can cast illusions and even has a Perk that sees you rolling a D20 die. So far, it’s looking like a really true-to-Dungeons & Dragons chapter, and we can’t wait to get our hands on the new characters. Check out our TL;DR below, or read on to see the full patch notes for 8.0.0!

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 60 seconds if the performance is completed.
    When the ability is cancelled or the performance completes, it goes on cooldown for 90/75/60 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 18 meters.

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 12 seconds.

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 8 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.

A new Map comes to the world of Dead by Daylight, found in The Decimated Borgo Realm. A tower standing tall alone, but what is above ground hides a new world underground. A prison area where Vittorio Toscano was thrown in for some time. On the other side of the dungeon, the Alchemist room is found, where a scholar can learn secrets of the world, or the dimensions that surround the universe of the Entity.
