    This killer: Looks pretty complicated The trapper: Oh, look, the bear trap.

    12:35 watching the “damn that mimic is FUCKABLE” comment get deleted in real time is so funny
  • @lukepalm9586
    I can't wait for Ellen Ripley from the hit movie Alien to pull out a lute and start playing against the demogorgon from stranger things
  • @Modeus.
    Bardic Inspiration, Dramaturgy, Autodidact, and Plunderer's Instinct. The gambler build. Gamble with friends, gamble whilst in chase, gamble when healing, and gamble during your free time. I love gambling.
  • @The_ace-1233
    The Bard perk is so fucking funny. Imagine your on the ground bleeding out and your friend is just vibing next to you

    "Bro lets t-bag the killer in gate" "Nah bro we'll play them a song"

    I bet Stranger Things fans shat themselves with joy after hearing “Vecna” and then shat themselves with grief after realizing it’s the D&D guy, not the Stranger Things Season 4 guy
  • @soulfliktion
    "I can change my power" Knight is literally crying in the corner rn
  • @lmn_godie2598
    1:26 It's voiced by Matt Mercer, the Voice Actor, not to be confused with Alex Mercer, the bio-terrorist
  • Imagine being a literal knight and then getting upstaged by a literal god joining your game on your team. I'm glad DbD is taking DnD's approach to martial vs caster balance, they truly respect the source material

    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
  • @BDeity
    I love how we've come so far in DBD, that now Kate can actually bust out her guitar.
  • @Entitusschule
    I like the fact that the first few killers have exactly one ability, like bear traps or a semi invisibilty and this killer literally can cast 4 different spells for like every fucking situation possible.
  • @BlueBD
    "I will play my role.... for now" That line has a TON of lore implications.
  • @Spooky_Bard
    In case no one else has mentioned it yet, I found the alternate Mori people were talking about. Basically, it’s an in-kit Mori like Pyramid Head, and it activates when you down someone carrying the Eye or Hand of Vecna, distinguished by the “recover artifact” prompt.
  • 1:28 Yknow he may be a biomutant killer, monster, and terrorist but Alex Mercer is a pretty damn good VA
  • The dungeon underneath the map is so well done, and surprisingly big, even more than 1 gen spawns down there.
  • gives someone their item Nurse from the other side of the map: so you have chosen death.
