Jar of Wisps is an activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Spawns a wisp that orbits Isaac, fires tears, blocks enemy shots, and deals contact damage to enemies, much like the ones spawned by 15►Book of Virtues Book of Virtues.
  • Isaac can have up to 3 rings of wisps; an inner, counter-clockwise spinning ring of 6 wisps, a center, clockwise-spinning ring of 8 wisps, and an outer, counter-clockwise spinning ring of 12 wisps, for a total of 26.
    • The jar initially spawns only one wisp, but spawns an additional wisp each time the jar is used, up to a maximum of 12 per use.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The wisps spawned by the jar can be ones created by any Book of Virtues synergy, but the vanilla version is much more common than the variants.
  • If jar is held, in the top left corner you will be able to see how many wisps it will spawn when used.
  • Switching the jar with other active items and then picking it up again does not reset the number of wisps that will be spawned on use.
