Holy Light is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: Afterbirth.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Isaac has a chance to fire a glowing blue tear that, after colliding with an enemy, spawns a damaging beam of light (similar to Crack the Sky Crack the Sky).
    • Each beam of light deals quadruple (4x) Isaac's tear damage.
    • A single beam of light can damage multiple enemies.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The chance to fire a holy tear depends on the Luck stat and maxes out at a 50% chance at 9 luck.

Synergies[edit | edit source]
