Holy Light is a passive item added in 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 SkySummons multiple beams of light in random locations around the room, dealing a large amount of damage to any enemy that touches them.).
- 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]
- Angelic PrismGrants a prism orbital with a large orbital radius. Tears that pass through the prism split into four multi-colored tears.: If Holy Light tears are split by prism, all four tears will have Holy Light effect; normal tears will not gain Holy Light after being split by prism.
- Compound FractureIncreases range. Tears turn into bones, which shatter into 1-3 bone shards upon hitting an enemy or obstacle./ Cricket's BodyGrants -1 Tear Delay and reduces Range. When tears hit an object or deplete their range, they spawn 4 smaller tears, whose Range and Damage scale with Isaac's./ The ParasiteIsaac's tears split in two when they hit something.: Holy Light tears will have split tears with Holy Light effect; normal tears will not have split tears with Holy Light effect.
- LachryphagyIsaac's tears decelerate as they travel. Upon stopping or hitting an obstacle, they burst into 8 tears in all directions. Tears can be fired into other tears to feed them, increasing their damage.: If Holy Light tears feed normal tears, fed normal tears will not gain Holy Light effect; however, if normal tears feed Holy Light tears, it will just increase the size of fed Holy Light tears.
- The Ludovico TechniqueInstead of firing tears, Isaac controls one floating tear that hover over obstacles. This tear deals constant damage when held in place over an enemy.: The controlled tear will sometimes glow and trigger the beam.
- Rubber CementTears bounce off walls, enemies, and environmental objects.: Tears can still spawn beams of light after bouncing off an enemy, making it possible to spawn multiple beams from the same tear.
