The Stairway is a passive item added in .
The Binding of Isaac: Repentance
Effects [ ]
At the start of every floor, generates a ladder which leads to a special Angel Room Shop, regardless of whether a devil deal has been taken. These angel shops always contain the following:
Three items/pickups for sale. These items/pickups can be on sale, just like with normal
Angel statue. The Angel can be fought for a Key Piece like normal. A normal
beggar or rotten beggar next to the entrance. A Confessional, if it has been unlocked.
Notes [ ]
The ladder to the angel room disappears if Isaac leaves the starting room, regardless of whether Isaac has climbed it or not.
The ladder also disappears after save-quitting.
Weight decrementation in the generated shops is the same as in regular Angel Rooms, so if an item is seen in the special shop, it won't be encountered regularly again for the rest of the run. During the
Ascent, ladders will generate in the "starting rooms" (where light beams are located) on every floor. The ladder will appear in
Greed Mode, but the ladder may be blocked off depending on the room layout. The ladder will appear in the
Mirrored World in the starting room, and will lead to the same shop. Since a beggar always spawns immediately to the right of the entrance way, caution should be taken to avoid accidental donation.
