Added in Afterbirth †

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

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Grants 2 Soul Hearts.
  • Modifies drops from Champion enemies depending on certain conditions. The priorities of the drops, in order, are as follows:
    • Soul Hearts: When Isaac has no Red Heart containers and less than 2 Soul Hearts.
    • Full Red Hearts: While at 0.5 Red Hearts.
    • Keys: When Isaac has no keys. 
    • Bombs: When Isaac has no bombs.
    • Full Red Hearts: When Isaac has at least half a Red Heart container empty.
    • Pennies: While Isaac has less than 15 pennies.
    • Keys: When Isaac has less than 5 keys. 
    • Bombs: When Isaac has less than 5 bombs.
    • Trinkets: If Isaac has no trinkets and there are no trinkets on the ground in the room.
    • Soul Hearts: When Isaac has less than 6 total Red Heart containers of any kind.
    • If none of the above conditions are true, champions will resume dropping their regular pickups.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Because of how the item works in the priorities listed above, this item is useless for The Lost (except in combination with Immaculate Conception Immaculate Conception) as he is always considered to be at half a Soul Heart, and all champion drops are replaced with Soul Hearts.
  • The Glyph has no effect in Greed Mode or Greedier Mode; champions still never drop anything.
