Added in Afterbirth †

Trisagion is an unlockable passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth †.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Tears are replaced with piercing white blasts of light.
    • Blasts deal 33% of the regular tear damage but can hit the same enemy multiple times.
    • Removed in Repentance Blasts do not knockback enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Since the blasts can strike one enemy multiple times, low shot speed can be very beneficial whereas high shot speed may lower effective damage.
    • Walking backward while firing can allow tears to move slower, making it useful for increasing damage output.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►8 Inch Nails 8 Inch Nails / Blister Blister / 15►Pisces Pisces: Adds knockback to blasts, which can not only significantly repel enemies when used correctly, it can deal a high amount of damage to enemies unable to escape the knockback.
    • Added in Repentance Further adds knockback, which could potentially make it harder to effectively use. Untested.
  • 15►Chocolate Milk Chocolate Milk: Fully charged Trisagion blasts deal 4 times more damage, exceeding Isaac's tear damage.
  • 15►Evil Eye Evil Eye: Eyes will fire beams. Occasionally causes Trisagion beams to stay static in the air for a few seconds, dealing damage to enemies that come in contact with them.
  • 15►Godhead Godhead: Although the damaging aura isn't visible, it still exists and is not affected by Trisagion's damage reduction.
  • Guppy: As it hits multiple times, it spawns multiple flies per tear making it very strong.
  • 15►Haemolacria Haemolacria: Both Trisagion and Haemolacria fire at the same time, Haemolacria does not keep spectral tears despite its tears sprite change but the arced tear keeps piercing.
  • Homing tears: Tears slow down and stay on top of the enemy, doing continuous damage.
  • 15►Ipecac Ipecac: Beams will now travel through obstacles and maintain their piercing effect dealing 33% of regular damage to enemies they come in contact with, but won't explode on hit. The Ipecac explosion will happen once the beam runs out of range or hits a wall and will deal damage equal to Isaac's damage.
    • Added in RepentanceKeeps Ipecac's stats but shoots a constantly exploding Trisagion beam. There is no way to avoid being hit from the explosion, since the shot immediately explodes.
  • 15►The Ludovico Technique The Ludovico Technique: The beam becomes controllable, still dealing reduced damage but at a very high rate.
  • 15►My Reflection My Reflection: In addition to the usual effect, lengthens the Trisagion blasts into short flexible beams for a much larger damage-dealing area.
  • 15►Mysterious Liquid Mysterious Liquid: Causes a large trail of creep. The effect stacks, which causes heavy damage (even to Hush).
  • 15►Proptosis Proptosis: Base damage is doubled and beam damage is boosted to about 65%. Blasts lose no power as they travel further, though the tips of the blasts deal very slightly less damage.
  • 15►Pop! Pop! Every damage tick will shoot out a Pop tear. Trisagion shots will also hover in the air longer than normal.

  • 15►Flat Stone Flat Stone: Blasts continually disappear and reappear as they "bounce". The bounces deal 25% splash damage based on Isaac's base rating, but the blasts cannot do their damage while they're disappearing, leading to an overall reduced efficiency.

    • Added in RepentanceBlasts can apply Holy Light, with a light beam being generated on each damage tick, dealing Isaac's tear damage per beam (three times Trisagion's damage).

  • 15►A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Nearly no effect; increases damage by around 5% when the hit is dealt by the tip of the blast.

  • 15►Mom's Knife Mom's Knife: Overrides Trisagion.
