3rd Iteration Shrine (W31, 2022)

The Shrine of Secrets is a Store for Unique Perks, that allows Players to unlock Perk Tiers of Characters they do not currently own or they do not intend to level and prestige yet.

It was originally implemented into Dead by DaylightIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogoIconHelp DBDlogo with Patch 1.2.0 (October 2016).


Overview

The Shrine of Secrets allows Players to unlock Perk Tiers of Unique Perks of Characters they do not currently own.

It also allows the same for Characters a Player does not wish to level at the moment, which would naturally unlock those Unique Perks upon prestiging.

The Shrine of Secrets resets every Tuesday at 15:00 UTC (GMT+0).


Purchasing Perks

Purchasing a Perk Tier from the Shrine of Secrets will automatically unlock it in the inventory of all Survivors or Killers.

Cost

The Shrine of Secrets uses Iridescent ShardsIconCurrency iridescentShardsIconCurrency iridescentShardsIconCurrency iridescentShards as its currency:

Perk Tier Default Cost Cost if Tier I
unlocked through Prestige
Cost if Tier II
unlocked through Prestige
Tier I 2,000 IS NaN NaN
Tier II 4,000 IS 2,000 IS NaN
Tier III 6,000 IS 4,000 IS 2,000 IS

It should be noted that purchasing a Perk that is already unlocked at Tier III grants 100,000 Bloodpoints instead.


Shrine Selection

The Shrine features a selection of 4 Unique Perks (always 2 for Survivors and 2 for Killers).

The selection is the same for all Players on all Platforms and despite many claims to the contrary, completely random with only a handful of exceptions (detailed further down).

A Unique Perk that has been in the Shrine of Secrets cannot reappear for at least the next 3 Shrines.

To date, that rule was only broken once due to a bug, featuring EnduringIconPerks enduringIconPerks enduringIconPerks enduring in the Shrine of Weeks 44 and 45 in 2020.

Exceptions

Tome Challenges

If the current Shrine of Secrets coincides with the opening of a new Tome Level in the most recent TomeIconHelp archivesCollectionIconHelp archivesCollectionIconHelp archivesCollection, and that Tome Level features Master Challenges that require the use of specific Unique Perks, then the Shrine will automatically feature those required Perks.

Special Shrines

The Developers have the ability to manipulate the Shrine of Secrets for Community-Choice Shrines, that feature Perks selected by the Community in a poll.

Outside of those events, the Shrine is completely random.

History

1st Iteration

In use up to Patch 2.0.0

The main use of the Shrine of Secrets was to purchase Teachable Perks from Characters one either did not own or whom they had not levelled to Levels 30, 35, 40 in the BloodwebIconHelp bloodwebIconHelp bloodwebIconHelp bloodweb, where the Teachable Perks spawned naturally.

Teachable Perks would cost 500 IS to purchase or 750 IS if they originated from a recently released DLC.

Purchasing Teachable Perks one already owned would instead grant 150,000 BP or 250,000 BP respectively.

2nd Iteration

In use up to Patch 6.1.0

Teachable Perks would cost 2,000 IS to purchase or 2,700 IS if they originated from a recently released DLC.

    • This places it closer to the Load-out and the Bloodweb.
  • Updated the layout to provide key information without needing to hover over the Perks.


Trivia

  • For the first initial weeks of Patch 2.0.0, the Shrine of Secrets was deactivated until the Patch went live on the Console version of the game, that wasn't available until a few weeks later due to the certification process of Sony and Microsoft.
    • This was because the Shrine is synchronised across all Platforms and doesn't support two different pricing systems.
    • The Shrine was originally planned to go back up on 29 June 2018, but was delayed due to the certification process of the PS4 Patch having had problems and further delays.
    • The Shrine went back up on 6 July 2018.
  • Since the Shrine renewal of Weeks 14/15 in 2020 fell on April Fool's Day, the Developers had the game create a special April Fool's Shrine that was available for just 24 hours, containing only Calm SpiritIconPerks calmSpiritIconPerks calmSpiritIconPerks calmSpirit, the Perk that hitherto had already appeared the most often on the Shrine.
  • The Shrine of Week 22 in 2022 was not random, but instead voted on by the Community as part of the preparatory-events for Dead by Daylight's Sixth Year Anniversary.
