Tough Love is a passive item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Adds a chance to shoot a tooth instead of a tear, which deals greater damage (x3.2) than regular tears.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The chance to fire a tooth depends on the luck stat. At base luck (0), the chance is 10%. It goes up to 100% at 9 luck (around 10% more chance per luck up).
