Each year, Dead by Daylight introduces four new Killers and Survivors, each coming with their three Teachable Perks, skins, maps, offerings, and more. In 2021, we can also expect four new Killers and Survivors, starting with Chapter 19 – All Kill.
Chapter 19 introduces the new Killer “The Trickster,” also known as Ji-Woon Hak, and Yun-Jin Lee, the new female Survivor. The Trickster will release with the All-Kill chapter in Match 2021 on Steam as DLC.
By the way, The Trickster and Yun-Jin Lee are not licensed characters like Ghost Face or Pyramid Head, so they can be unlocked with Auric Cells and Iridescent Shards.
What is The Tricksters Power?
Basically, Survivors are re-skins of each other and only differ from their appearance. On the other hand, each Killer has a unique Power. The Tricksters power is called Showstopper and is a range-type power, similar to the Huntress hatchets.
Start the Trial with 60 Blades. Press and hold the Power button to wind up and enter the Throw State.
While in the Throw State, tap the Attack button to throw a single Blade, or hold down the Attack button to unleash a flurry of Blades.
Throwing a flurry of Blades increases control and Throw rate, while decreasing Movement speed. Restock Blades at Lockers.
A Survivor’s Laceration Meter increases each time they are hit by a Blade. Once the meter is filled (8 Blade Hits), they lose a Health State, putting them either into the Injured or Dying State.
A Survivor’s Laceration Meter will gradually decrease if they have not been hit by a Blade for a short time. Hitting a Survivor with a Basic Attack will partially deplete their Laceration Meter.
SPECIAL ATTACK: Main Event
Each Blade Hit also fills the Event Meter. Once full, Main Event can be activated by pressing the Ability button. In this mode, The Trickster temporarily unleashes his full potential.
Automatically throw an unlimited number of Blades at an increased Throw rate without further slowing your Movement speed while in the Throw State.
What are The Tricksters Teachable Perks?
It is a tradition that every new character comes with three new Teachables that players can unlock at Bloodweb level 30/35/40 for all other characters. The Tricksters three Perks are called Starstruck, Hex: Crowd Control, and No Way Out.
His Teachables help him to hunt down incoming rescuers and block areas of the environment to his advantage. Especially Starstruck seems interesting for Killers, especially those who can get to other Survivors quickly, such as the Nurse, Hillbilly, Oni, or Spirit.
Just by seeing what each Teachable can do, I can think of great Perk combos such as;Crowd Control with Hex: Undying, Starstruck with Distressing, and No Way Out with Remember Me.
Your unmatched showmanship dazzles all. Starstruck activates when you are carrying a Survivor. Whenever a Survivor enters or re-enters your Terror Radius, they suffer from the Exposed Status Effect.
- The Exposed Status Effect lingers for 26/28/30 seconds after leaving your Terror Radius.
Starstruck cools down for 60 seconds once a Survivor is no longer carried.
“Enjoy this moment, few get so close.” — Ji-Woon Hak
Hex: Crowd Control:
A Hex that ensures those lesser than you are properly herded. The Entity blocks a Window for 10/12/14 seconds after a Survivors performs a rushed vault through it.
The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem is standing.
“You have no control. People like you never did.” — Ji-Woon Hak
No Way Out:
You’re not going to let just anyone into the VIP room. For each of the Survivors you manage to hook, No Way Out gains a Token.
When the last Generator is repaired, The Entity blocks both Exit Gate Switches for 10 seconds and an additional 4/6/8 seconds per Token in your possession, up to a combined maximum of 26/34/42 seconds.
“That sound when you bleed… let me hear it again” — Ji-Woon Hak
What are Yun-Jin Lee’s Teachable Perks?
Yun-Jin Lee’s three Teachables are Fast Track, Smash Hit, and Self-Preservation, which allow her to improve her abilities when other Survivors are harmed, and quickly escape from a chase.
From the first sight, Smash Hit seems to be the best Perk of Yun-Jin, but you require a successful Pallet stun to activate it. Fast Track seems to be similar to Stake Out (Teachable of David Tapp), so it focuses on Gen-progression. Self-Preservation is only useful if the Killer hits another Survivor within 12 meters of you, which is not the case most of the time. However, if it activates, it becomes very easy to escape from the Killer.
Note that you have all Teachable Perks available from the start, but only with the character they come with. If you want to use a Teachable Perk of Yun-Jin Lee on another Survivor, you have to reach level 40 of her Bloodweb.
Sometimes the sacrifice of others is necessary to get ahead. Whenever another Survivor is hooked, you gain 1/2/3 Token(s). You consume all Tokens after a Great Skill Check on a Generator.
- Each Token consumed grants an additional Progression bonus of 1% for Great Skill Checks when repairing Generators.
“The weak are sacrificed first. It’s nature, it’s business… it’s the truth most refuse to face.” — Yun-Jin Lee
When your rival makes a mistake, you seize the opportunity. After stunning the Killer with a Pallet, break into a sprint at 150% of your normal running speed for a maximum of 4 seconds.
- Causes the Exhausted Status Effect for 60/50/40 seconds.
- Smash Hit cannot be used when Exhausted.
- You do not recover from Exhaustion while running.
“I’ve dealt with psychopaths in suits. You’re just uglier and worse dressed.” — Yun-Jin Lee
Life’s unforgiving. The more confirmation you get of that, the more prepared you become. Whenever another Survivor within 12 meters of you is hit with a Basic or Special Attack, Self-Preservation activates.
- Your Scratch Marks are hidden for 6/8/10 seconds.
- Grunts of Pain caused by injuries are reduced by 100% for 6/8/10 seconds.
- You do not leave any Pools of Blood for 6/8/10 seconds.
“Something I learnt in the industry: when the axe is swinging, keep your head down.” — Yun-Jin Lee
What are The Tricksters Add-ons?
Besides Offerings, you have the option to equip up to two Add-ons, which improve the Killers power. With Chapter 19, the Trickster has 20 different Add-ons that can be brought into a Trial.
Most out of the 20 Add-ons focus on the Laceration Meter, throwing rate of the Blades, and the Main Event ability.
