Dbd-bloodweb-ss Quotes left Last night I got out of The Fog, in a matter of speaking. I arrived in a pocket of tranquillity where the monster was nowhere to be seen. I stopped running and was immediately filled with a strange calmness. I lay down near the bonfire and closed my eyes for the first time in what seemed like days. After long, deep breaths, I plunged into what I first thought was the darkness of a dreamless sleep. And then I saw it: the Bloodweb, a space between reality and abstraction. There is no sleep here, only torment. Even my own mind is shared and bent at The Entity's will. Quotes right
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Nov. 1896 (displayed to Players after opening the Bloodweb for the first time on a Character)


Overview

The Bloodweb, as it was dubbed by Benedict Baker, is a metaphysical concept within the world of Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo, which according to the Lore, is accessed by Players through their thought and sleep patterns while trapped in the Realm of The Entity.

Each Character in Dead by Daylight has their own randomly-generated Bloodweb.


Use

The Bloodweb is the Character Progression mechanic of Dead by Daylight and allows Players to purchase various Unlockables in exchange for the BloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpointsIconCurrency bloodpoints gained from playing ranked Trials.

The Bloodweb is constructed from three concentric circles around a central Node with interconnecting lines that connect a random number of Nodes, located on the circles, together.
The number of Nodes in a given Bloodweb depend on the Character's current Level, with higher levels producing larger Bloodwebs with more interconnections.

Every fifth Bloodweb is larger than usually for its Tier.

Purchasing Nodes

When a new Bloodweb is generated, Players only have immediate access to the Nodes of the inner circle, which is connected to the central Node.
In order to access the Nodes on the middle and the outer circle, Players must purchase Nodes from the inner and the middle circle respectively, creating a path to the desired Node first.

Entity-Interference

Players can purchase Nodes undisturbed until they progress a Character's Bloodweb to Level 10, at which point The EntityIconHelp entityIconHelp entityIconHelp entity awakens starts to interfere.

From this point onwards, purchasing the fourth Node will spawn a dark, foggy Node outside the regular Bloodweb circles, which will consume a Node on the outermost accessible circle on the Player's purchase of the fifth Node.
The Entity will then continue to consume a Node each time the Player purchases another one until the entire Bloodweb is either purchased or consumed, with no free Nodes left.

If the Player purchases a Perk in a Bloodweb that has multiple Perks available, and The Entity has not awoken yet, it will immediately consume one of the other Perks, both forgoing the rule about spawning after a set number of nodes have been consumed by the Player and spawning outside the regular circles first.

Consumed Nodes cannot be purchased by the Player and paths between consumed Nodes cannot be accessed, causing The Entity to sometimes consume multiple Nodes at once, if there is no alternative path left the Player could take to a Node.

Entity-Behaviour

When consuming Nodes from the Bloodweb, The Entity exhibits distinct patterns for which Node it will consume given specific circumstances:

  1. The first Node consumed will always be located on the outermost available circle, meaning that if all Nodes on the outer circle were purchased before The Entity awakened, it will consume a Node on the middle circle instead.
    • This rule is also applied if its path is intercepted by the Player.
  2. The Entity shows a preference for consuming the Node of the highest Rarity first, if it has the choice between multiple Nodes of varying Rarity for its next consumption.
    • However, this preference does not apply if it respawns on one of the outermost Nodes, after having had its path blocked by the Player or consumed all Nodes on its current branch.
  3. The Entity will not consume a bottlenecking Node (a Node that provides the only accessible path to other Nodes on the middle or the outer circle), if that would cause the Bloodweb to become completely purchased/consumed.
    • In this scenario, The Entity will stop its path and respawn on the outermost Node connected to the bottlenecking one instead.
  4. The final Node consumed can only ever be a non-bottlenecking Node.

Levelling-up

Main Article: Levels & Prestige

Once all Nodes in a Bloodweb are either purchased or consumed, a new Bloodweb generates and the Character's Level is progressed by +1.
This continues up to Level 50, after which the Player must consume the central Node to prestige the Character, progressing their Prestige by +1.
This then continues up to Prestige 100, after which a high-level Bloodweb continues to be generated indefinitely whenever all of its Nodes are purchased/consumed.


Nodes

The Bloodweb is made up of several Nodes, cells that are interconnected with paths and contain the Unlockables.
What type the Unlockable in a given cell is can be discerned from the icon's shape:

Nodes come in different Rarities that depend on the type of Unlockable they display.
Their cost is directly linked to their Rarity:

Benedict's Quotes

When generating Bloodwebs, some Levels display a piece of Lore information from Benedict Baker's Journal, explaining the Bloodweb in the context of the Realm of The Entity:

Level 2

Quotes left I return to the space I call the Bloodweb as often as I can. I feel like I'm starting to gain more control over it. I'm able to focus and travel to deeper levels. Here's a fair warning to anyone who might attempt to follow my steps: Tread carefully, as the Bloodweb is unpredictable and ever-changing. Quotes right
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Nov 1896

Level 10

Quotes left I have found that on deeper levels of the Bloodweb, I can learn and collect better tools. The deeper I go, and the more marvel I can extirpate from the figment of fog. This comes at a price, however. The Entity that rules over this world grows restless with my attempts to know more. Each time I move further in the web, It makes sure to devour and consume something else. I must choose carefully what I want to extract from this journey across the web. Quotes right
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Dec. 1896 (referring to The Entity)

Level 15

Quotes left Today I have reached a deeper sub-level of the Bloodweb which opened my mind to more possibilities. I have no way to know how deep I can go, but I must continue as long as I can withhold my sanity. Quotes right
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Feb. 1897 (referring to unlocking the second Perk Slot)

Level 30

Quotes left I feel confident that I can inculcate my awareness of the Bloodweb to the others that are trapped here with me. Maybe they can unlock their inner strength with my help. Quotes right
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, June 1897 (referring to unlocking Teachable Perks)


History

Original Bloodweb

  • Nodes of higher Rarity had a tendency to only spawn on the outermost circle.
  • The cost of Nodes was independent of their Rarity, but determined by which circle they were on:
    • Nodes on the inner circle all cost 3,000 Bloodpoints
    • Nodes on the middle circle all cost 5,000 Bloodpoints
    • Nodes on the outer circle all cost 8,000 Bloodpoints
  • Bloodwebs only ever spawned 1 Perk.
    • However, Level 2, 3, and 4 would spawn no Perks at all.
  • The Bloodweb would spawn a Character's Teachable Perks at Level 30, 35, and 40 respectively.
    • Since the previously mentioned rule also extended to these Perks, these Bloodweb Levels would only contain those Perks, no regular ones.
  • The Bloodweb would spawn the Tier I version of a Character's Unique Perks at Level 5, 10, and 15 respectively.
  • The Bloodweb would unlock a Character's Perk Slots II, III, and IV at Level 15, 20, and 25 respectively.
  • Lower-level Bloodwebs were much larger than the current iterations.
  • The Entity would consume Nodes after the Player's fourth purchase for all Levels.
  • The Perk Selection Routine of the original Bloodweb never worked as it was intended to do in regards to the Rarity of Perks:
    • The Bloodweb vastly preferred spawning Perks of higher Rarity over those of lower Rarity.
    • This was bugged to such an extent that Perks of Common Rarity would be so elusive that they were actually the rarest ones Players had, in some extreme cases only receiving them once the Bloodweb literally had no other, "rarer" Perks left to select.
  • Purchasing a Node would prompt a pop-up that detailed the purchased Unlockable.
  • Each Bloodweb contained at least 1 Mystery Box.

  • By cleverly intersecting the path The EntityIconHelp entityIconHelp entityIconHelp entity is consuming in the Bloodweb, it is possible to cause it to consume large chunks of it in the process, accelerating progression.
