Mikaela Reid Perks have been revealed for the Dead by Daylight PTB. The newest survivor arrived on Sept. 28 and revealed a whole new type of totem: Boon Totem.
As described in the developer update, "Survivors will be able to bless a totem to change it into a Boon Totem and these blessings are designed to offer comfort to the Survivor Team, a small safe haven. However, unlike a Hex Totem, the Killer can also quickly interact with the created Boon Totem to completely remove the associated blessing, once again turning it into a dull totem, they will also be able to hear the Boon Totem when in its range. Each Survivor can only have one Boon Totem active at a time. This Boon Totem will combine the effects of all of their equipped Boon perks."
Mikaela Reid Perks Revealed for Dead by Daylight
Reid has two Boon Totem abilities and one normal one. Expect Behaviour Interactive to test out this new idea and start to add more Boon Totem perks if it works out.
"This is an intrinsic energy in you that sees beyond your vision. Clairvoyance activates whenever you cleanse a Totem. When empty-handed, hold the Ability button to unlock your full aura-reading potential. For up to 10 seconds, you see the auras of exit gate switches, generators, hooks, and chests within a 64-meter range."
Boon: Circle of Healing
"A boon that offers comfort amidst the terror."
"Press and hold the Ability button near a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a Boon Totem. Soft chimes ring out in a 28-meter range. Any Survivors within the Boon Totem’s range gain a 100% healing speed bonus and can heal themselves without needing a Med-Kit. You can only bless one Totem at a time. All equipped boon perks are active on your Boon Totem."
Boon: Shadow Step
"A boon that conceals the truth."
"Press and hold the Ability button near a Dull or Hex Totem to bless it and create a Boon Totem. Soft chimes ring out in a 28-meter range. Any Survivors within the Boon Totem’s range will have their scratch marks and auras hidden to the Killer. This effect lingers for 4 seconds after leaving the Boon Totem’s range. You can only bless one Totem at a time. All equipped boon perks are active on your Boon Totem."
Overall, the first perk isn't that useful while the two Boon totems look super interesting. Time will tell if Boon Totems are overpowered and will need a rework.
