(in Repentance)

This is a test article to lay out the effects and stats of the wisps Isaac can create. It mostly covers Collectible Book of Virtues iconBook of Virtues synergies.

Unique Wisps[ | ]

Descriptions for the following wisp stats:

  • Item: The item that spawns the following wisp. Collectible Everything Jar iconEverything Jar, Collectible Esau Jr. iconEsau Jr., Collectible Mom's Box iconMom's Box, Collectible Pandora's Box iconPandora's Box, Collectible R Key iconR Key, and Collectible Death Certificate iconDeath Certificate only spawn normal wisps, and have no unique effects.
  • Orbit: The ring around Isaac the wisp occupies. The Inner ring can hold 6 wisps, the Center ring can hold 8 wisps, and the Outer ring can hold 12 wisps. Wisps that don't orbit Isaac will count as “other” and have their unique behavior in the notes.
  • HP: The amount of hits the wisp can take before being destroyed. Contact damage and explosions count as two hits taken. Wisps are immune to damage if Isaac is Shielded/Invulnerable or under the effects of Collectible Gnawed Leaf iconGnawed Leaf. Invulnerability frames from taking damage do not count.
  • Tear Damage: The damage the wisp's tears do. All wisps deal an additional +0.1 tear damage for every floor deeper into the game Isaac is. Note that the contact damage the wisps deal is 2x Isaac's damage per tick (4x Isaac's damage per second) and is unaffected by the wisp type, with a few exceptions.
    • Collectible BFFS! iconBFFS! will double the base damage, contact damage, and damage scaling per floor of the wisps, and Forgotten LullabyForgotten Lullaby will double their fire rate.
  • Tear Delay: The number of frames the wisp has to wait between firing tears. 30 frames equals one second.
  • Tear Effects: Any special tear effects/modifiers the wisp's tears have, such as Homing or Poison, and the chance of that effect occurring if it is a chance.
  • Notes: Any other effects the wisp has that are worth noting.
