The Withering Blight is an upcoming Event in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png that lasts from 22 October to 1 November 2019.

It will kick off the in-game celebrations in honour of Halloween 2019.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Withering Blight is a Halloween-themed version of the Scorching Summer BBQ Event.

Its occurrence was leaked by data found related to the new Event in CHAPTER XIII: Stranger Things and the new Customisation Options being added during Patch 3.2.2.

It is part of the reoccurring Blight Event; its predecessor was the 2018 The Hallowed Blight Event.

In-Game Changes[edit | edit source]

The Event Items can be found in newly generated Bloodwebs IconHelp bloodweb.png and generally in Chests IconHelp chests.png located throughout the Trial Grounds.

The Event Offering will increase the amount of Cankerous Hooks and Generators that spawn in the Trial Grounds and increase the Bonus Bloodpoints IconHelp bloodpoints.png one receives from interacting with them. Not burning the Offering will still grant Bonus Bloodpoints, but fewer.

Putrid Serum[edit | edit source]

By completing challenges and progressing the Event-Rift in the Archives, Players will be rewarded with Putrid Serum IconHelp putridSerum.png, which can then be exchanged for cosmetics of either the older Hallowed Blight Collection or this year's Hallowed Catalyst Collection.

The Serum is available on the Free Track of The Rift and is capped at a maximum of 60, allowing for the purchase of 6 Cosmetic Pieces or up to 2 Outfits.

The Hallowed Catalyst Collection[edit | edit source]

It is the season of night; a time of tricks and thrills. The Hallowed Blight infested the many Realms with putrid flowers whose nectar became the catalyst for horrific experiments. The Hallowed Catalyst Collection yields the morbid fruits of these experiments.

The Nurse - Foul Nightingale[edit | edit source]

This Outfit was only recently discovered with the 3.3.0 PTB and does not appear in the promotional Artwork for the Event. It may turn out to not be part of the Hallowed Catalyst Collection, despite it clearly showing The Nurse affected by Blight.
