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.
    • Coins: 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 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 detrimental for The Lost as he is always considered to be at half a soul heart, and all champion drops are replaced with soul hearts which are useless to him.
  • This item sees more use in Hard mode.
