      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.

    • @A2Ztigers
      @A2Ztigers 2 hours ago

      ​@@angelpr2477 TL,DR: Vecna is a lesser deity and legendarily powerful mage capable of warping reality even before he ascended to godhood. If he decided to fight the DBD Entity, it would be a hell of a fight, so it's lucky he's willing to play his role for now. (Although that's probably just a joke about how DnD is a roleplaying game).
      Long version, in DnD, Vecna was an extremely powerful mage who turned himself into an undead Lich in order to live forever, but was betrayed by a trusted vampiric general named Kas, who Vecna had previously gifted a sentient sword that, instilled with Vecna's evil, corrupted Kas and convinced him to usurp Vecna. During the fight, Kas cut off Vecna's hand and cut out his eye, but Vecna managed to banish him before dying. His severed hand and eye became potent magical artifacts after his death. Vecna was powerful enough in his un-life that he posthumously developed a religious following big enough to bring him back as a minor deity, and has since tried several times to get a spot on the major pantheon. In terms of definite feats, provable strength, Vecna probably beats the Entity.

  • @Thoast_
    @Thoast_ 12 days ago +84

    Its funny my first thought on vecna was that it seemed complicated. And yet the moment I got into it, it was one of the most fun killers I've played in a while.
    *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*

    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.

      @Matthias129 10 days ago +5

      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.

      "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.

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