Added in Repentance

Red Stew is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • On pickup, fully heals Isaac and gives him a temporary +21.6 damage up.
    • The damage upgrade scales down to 0 over the course of three minutes. Due to how the damage formula, works, the damage upgrade scales down faster over time, starting at -~0.015 per half second and increasing to -~.1 per half second as the bonus approaches 0.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the high amount of damage you temporarily gain, this item is extremely effective in Greed Mode, as all fights are done within the same room and you are easily able to make the most out of it.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In the bible, Esau sold his birthrights to his younger brother, Jacob, for a serving of lentil stew, so that Jacob would receive their dying father's blessing.
