Update 5.1.1 will arrive in Dead By Daylight today and includes a long list of bug fixes and even some buffs to The Trickster.

The developers have indicated that The Trickster’s performance was lower than intended following the previous Dead By Daylight update. So, in order to counteract this problem, The Trickster has had his Laceration decay time increased from 10 seconds to 15 seconds. His maximum throw speed bonus has also been increased from 25% to 30%.

Full Patch Notes

Below you will find the official patch notes for Dead By Daylight Patch 5.1.1. These notes were taken from the Dead By Daylight Forum.

Content

The Trickster:

  • Increased time before Laceration decay to 15s (was 10s)
  • Increased maximum throw speed bonus to 30% (was 25%)

The Trickster’s performance is still lower than we want him after the 5.1.0 release, so we decided to add a bit of power in a few places. Chase dynamics are more interesting now that he has a short delay before Laceration decays but it was a bit too easy for him to lose partial progress toward damaging a Survivor, meriting an increase to the delay.
