  • The Fire Rate bonus can exceed the normal Fire Rate cap.
  • Any self-damage, such as from Curse Room Curse Rooms, Sacrifice Room Sacrifice Rooms, the Bad Trip pill, and self-damaging items such as IV Bag IV Bag, won't reset the bonus.
  • Clearing waves in Greed Mode will give the candle charges as if you cleared rooms.


  • Holy Mantle Holy Mantle / any similar item: The flame is not snuffed out when damage is negated by the shield.
