Added in Afterbirth †

Jacob's Ladder is a passive item added in Afterbirth †.

Effects

  • Tears fire 1-2 sparks of electricity in random directions upon hitting an obstacle or enemy.
    • Sparks deal half of the tear's damage (Isaacs' current damage stat).
    • Sparks behave like spectral homing lasers and will arc to hit enemies that are close enough, even striking multiple ones in a row.
    • Tears that hit the floor due to running out of range do not generate arcs.

Synergies

  • All status causing tear effects: The status effects will be applied over the electric arcs as well. The poison caused by Serpent's Kiss Serpent's Kiss will not drop black hearts.
  • Angelic Prism Angelic Prism: All of the split tears will be electrified. Also, electric arcs that pass through the prism will be split.
  • Lost Contact Lost Contact: Tears block enemy shots as normal and will then generate arcs of electricity where the shot was blocked.
  • A Lump of Coal A Lump of Coal: Sparks deal damage based the tear's, increasing with distance. No extra damage is applied by the distance covered by the spark.
  • Spectral tears: The tears can spawn sparks while passing through obstacles.
  • Technology Zero Technology Zero: Both effects happening simultaneously creates lots of electricity.

Trivia

  • This item refers to high voltage traveling arcs, which are colloquially known as Jacob's ladders. It creates a small electric arc rising between two metal rods, as the item graphic represents.
    • The name is a reference to The Book of Genesis from the Old Testament. In Genesis 28:10-19 Jacob rests on his journey and has a dream; in the dream, he sees a ladder that serves as the connection between Heaven and Earth.=

Tips

  • When you enter a room, you can shoot a wall to do immediate damage to enemies in the room.

Bugs

Bug Bug! When using The Forgotten's melee attack with both Jacob's Ladder and Haemolacria, the sparks caused by splattered tears will hurt the player. This does not apply to other tear scattering items.
