Change Log

Patch 4.7.0

  • Nerf: added a cool-down of 30 seconds.
    • This nerf does not affect regular users of Soul Guard, but instead prevents stacking it with We're Gonna Live Forever IconPerks wereGonnaLiveForever.png and We'll Make It IconPerks wellMakeIt.png to create situations of practically invincible Survivors.


Trivia

  • Soul Guard may be used in conjunction with Unbreakable IconPerks unbreakable.png in order to receive the latter's Recovery Speed boost.
