Added in Repentance

Paschal Candle is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.


  • Gives Isaac a candle familiar that increases Isaac's tears fired per second by 0.4 upon clearing a room. The tear bonus is reset when Isaac takes damage.
    • This effect stacks up to 5 times, for a maximum of +2 tears per second (this bonus can exceed the tear cap). The candle's flame burns stronger as Isaac gains fire rate.
    • As soon as Isaac picks up the candle, he is given one room's worth of the effect. (This means that the player only has to clear 4 rooms to get the maximum effect, assuming that they do not take any damage.)



  • 15►Holy Mantle Holy Mantle: The tears bonus isn't reset by a hit nullified by the Holy Mantle's effect.
  • 15►Rock Bottom Rock Bottom: The tears bonus stays even after taking a hit.


  • 15►BFFS! BFFS!: The candle appears larger, but doesn't get improved.
  • 15►Diplopia Diplopia: No extra familiars or stat boosts are granted from copies.
