Effects[edit | edit source]

    • Three items/pickups for sale, which can be:
      • An item from the Angel Room pool for 15 pennies.
      • An eternal heart for 5 pennies.
      • A soul heart for 5 pennies.
      • A key for 5 pennies.
      • A Holy Card Holy Card for 5 pennies.
        • These items/pickups can be on sale, just like with normal Shops.
    • An Angel statue. The Angel can be fought for a Key Piece like normal.
    • A normal beggar near the door out of the room.
  • The ladder to the angel room disappears if Isaac leaves the starting room.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • When backtracking to Home after acquiring Dad's Note, ladders will generate at the end of every floor.
  • If you exit and re-enter the room where the ladder spawned without climbing it, it will despawn.
  • This item is extremely effective with Filigree Feather Filigree Feather, as you can obtain a guaranteed free angel item every floor, so long as you can kill the Angel.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This item was originally called "Jacob's Ladder" in The Binding Of Isaac: Antibirth, but was changed, most likely to avoid confusion between this item and the item 15►Jacob's Ladder Jacob's Ladder. Jacob's ladder is a ladder leading to Heaven that Jacob sees in a dream in the Book of Genesis.
  • This item's name and it's tooltip are a reference to the Led Zeppelin song "Stairway to Heaven."
