With so many iconic villain characters, Vecna is a standout and formidable foe for any Survivor. Vecna will new Powers and Perks that DnD players may just recognize including flight, mage hand, and sphere casting. Mage Hand will conjure a magical hand to lift a downed Pallet or briefly block an upright pallet. Meanwhile, for Artist lovers, Flight of the Damned may be your new favorite power. Flight of the Damned sends 5 spectral entities that can pass through obstacles and injure Survivors. Lastly, Dispelling Sphere will cast an invisible sphere that reveals Survivors and disabled their Magic Items. While the spells may seem daunting, Magic Items can be picked up via a dice roll at chests to combat them.

However, Vecna’s three new perks also gives a nod to DnD. Weave Attunement will activate when a Survivor depleted their item for the first time. After depletion, the item is dropped. But, if a Survivor enters the range of the item, their Aura is revealed. If the Survivor picks up the item, they will gain Oblivious. Remember crows in the realm? While they give soft audio cues, Languid Touch will make crows scary again. Survivors who scare a crow in your Terror Radius will become Exhausted for a brief duration. Lastly, Dark Arrogance will make the Killer Blinded and Stunned for longer, but you gain a faster Vault Speed.
