    • Quitting and reloading the game will also reset the soul heart regeneration provided by 15►Scapular Scapular, thus negating the need for 15►Goat Head Goat Head
  • Keeper Keeper / Tainted Keeper Tainted Keeper / 15►Strawman Strawman: The pennies that are spawned when stepping on the spikes can be used to heal Keeper and infinitely farm rewards.
