When Do You Get Teachable Perks? (Dead by Daylight)

Teachable perks can be learned or purchased when the character you’re playing reaches levels 30, 35, or 40. This applies to both killers and survivors.

So if you don’t see a teachable perk you want in your character’s bloodweb, don’t worry! Chances are high that you’ll still be able to get your hands on it.


What is a Teachable Perk?

Every character in Dead By Daylight comes with their own special abilities.

Some are adept at sneaking and hiding, while others prefer a more head-on approach.

Because of these differences, each character is equipped with “unique perks” that are designed especially for them.

For example, those playing Ash Williams are guaranteed to obtain his unique perks:

  • Flip-Flop
  • Buckle Up
  • Mettle Of Man

Because these perks are unique to Ash, they will show up in his bloodweb at the levels I mentioned previously. Aside from spending some bloodpoints to add them to your Load-Out, there is no added cost for obtaining them.

If you aren’t playing Ash, you can still obtain his perks by purchasing them as “teachable perks”. These are perks you buy from the store using Iridescent Shards.

Once purchased, you’ll have the opportunity to obtain the strength of other characters while still playing your favorites.

Teachable perks can be tricky to find if you haven’t already stumbled across them. They don’t exactly hang out with the other available perks!

Here are the steps you’ll need to take in order to find the teachable perks you want:

Step One: Once you’ve loaded up the game, head to the Dead By Daylight Store. You’ll find it towards the bottom of the list on the main page.

Step Two: From here, travel over to the Shrine Of Secrets. Here, you will find 4 randomized perks that will be refreshed once per week.

Step Three: You may have to visit multiple times to find the perk you want. When it shows up, that perk can be purchased for Iridescent Shards.

With 84 available killer perks and 93 survivor perks to pick from, finding the most helpful perks can be quite a task.

Just imagine how long it would take to try out all of those different options!

There are definitely those who would rather sift out the best perks on their own, but others would rather get the information quickly so that they can start using those perks as soon as possible.

To aid in that venture, I’ve put together some of the best teachable perks for survivors and killers.
