A Pool of Devotion on The Temple of Purgation

Pools of Devotion are the only way for SurvivorsIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivorIconHelpLoading survivor to cleanse themselves of the Sickness applied by The Plague's Vile Purge.

Each Map that features The Plague as the Killer spawns with a set number of Pools of Devotion.

They give off a global sound cue when a Survivor cleanses themselves, or if The Plague interacts with a corrupted one to gain Corrupt Purge.


6 Pools of Devotion are located throughout the Trial Grounds and can be interacted with by infected Survivor to cleanse themselves.
Infected Survivors can see the AuraIconHelp aurasIconHelp aurasIconHelp auras of the Pools of Devotion, and The Plague sees those of corrupted Pools of Devotion.

The Plague can interact with corrupted Pools of Devotion in order to temporarily gain Corrupt Purge, which allows her to injure Survivors with her Power.

Survivors are unable to cleanse themselves at corrupted Pools of Devotion.

If all Pools of Devotion become corrupted, then The Plague automatically gains Corrupt Purge after 5 seconds, and all of the Pools reset.
