Added in Repentance

Urn of Souls is an unlockable activated item added in The Binding of Isaac: Repentance.

Effects[]

  • On use, Isaac pulls out (or puts away) the urn; holding a fire button when it's pulled out emits a stream of blue flames in whichever direction Isaac is aiming. Each flame deals 22.5-31.5 damage per second, depending on how far it's traveled, plus an additional 4.5 damage per second times floor number. Multiple flames can damage the same enemy simultaneously.
    • Isaac is also pushed backwards slightly while using it.
    • The flames destroy enemy projectiles, Poop Poop, and other fires, but bounce off rocks.
  • Killing enemies grants a soul charge to the Urn, up to a maximum of 20. Killing bosses grants a larger boost. Charges must be used to power Urn of Souls, with each charge being equivalent to 15 flames over the course of half a second.

Notes[]

  • Can be fired diagonally, or in any direction if using a gamepad or mouse controls (the latter being enabled in options.ini).
  • The Urn can't be used to destroy Shopkeeper Shopkeepers, unlike The Candle The Candle and Red Candle Red Candle.
  • Multiple Urns share the same charges.
  • Bethany Bethany can use her soul charges to fuel the Urn. Likewise, Tainted Bethany Tainted Bethany can use her blood charges.
  • Holding two urns with Jacob and Esau Jacob and Esau won't charge both at same time, each enemy will drop the same charges as if only one urn was held.

Synergies[]

  • Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: Flames can be split into four multi-colored flames.
  • Bird's Eye Bird's Eye / Ghost Pepper Ghost Pepper: The urn can emit flames from these items. Ghost Pepper flames are indistinguishable from Urn of Souls flames, but persist on the ground for longer.
  • The Book of Belial The Book of Belial + Birthright Birthright as Judas Judas / Dark Judas Dark Judas: The stream of fire is replaced with a controllable Brimstone Brimstone beam that destroys projectiles and deals more damage the longer it's active. The minimum damage is 2.25 + 0.24 * floor, and the maximum damage is 2.8 + 0.3 * floor, which it scales up to over the course of 3 seconds of continuous fire.
    • Souls dropped from enemies are colored red, and the Urn displays a red graphic on the HUD when active.
  • Book of Virtues Book of Virtues: A wisp spawns for every consecutive second Urn of Souls is fired. The occasional fires shot by the wisps block enemy shots, deal contact damage to enemies, and last for 3 seconds before dissipating. The flames deal 10 damage per tick for the first second they're out, scale down to 5 damage over the next second, and then stay at 5 damage until they dissipate (60-30 damage per second). The damage these fires deal does not increase with BFFS! BFFS! or scale up on later floors.
  • Immaculate Heart Immaculate Heart: Each individual flame has a chance to cause Immaculate Heart to generate an orbiting tear.
  • Lead Pencil Lead Pencil: Every 15 flames shot out of the urn will shoot a barrage of Isaac's tears.
  • Multidimensional Baby Multidimensional Baby: All flames shot through Multidimensional Baby are doubled, providing a burst of flashing black-and-white tears.
  • Eye of Greed Eye of Greed: Golden tears from Eye of Greed will shoot as normal while using the urn.
