Pull is a supernatural ability exclusive to The Brigmore Witches that allows Daud to lift and manipulate objects and bodies from afar. Pull consumes 20% of Daud's total mana if used on small items like coins, or 40% if used on a body.

Ability Tiers[]

Tier I - (2 runes)[]


Daud uses Pull Tier I to eat bread from a bin.

With Tier I, Pull can be used to covertly lift inanimate objects, such as whale oil tanks, and collect and pilfer items such as coins and keys.

Tier II - (4 runes)[]

With Tier II, Daud can use Pull to lift bodies. Corpses and unconscious bodies are carried automatically, and when brought close with Pull, living enemies are bound and can be choked out or executed.

Usage tips[]

  • If Daud uses Pull on an enemy, any nearby enemies will be alerted to Daud's presence by the enemy's shouts.
  • Pull has no upper time limit, remaining active for as long as Daud is using it.
  • Pull has no effect on Daud's speed or jumping ability. However, he cannot swim or climb without it deactivating.
  • Using the Agility double jump then releasing Pull will kill most enemies from the resulting fall.
  • If Daud looks away from whatever he is using Pull on, it will end.
  • Tier I Pull can be used to steal items from enemies or to disable security devices while remaining hidden. However, the cover of the power module must first be opened before Pull can be used to remove the oil tank.
  • Tier I Pull can be used to catch thrown weapons such as the bottles of acid used by the Dead Eels.
  • Daud can use Tier II Pull to draw characters into the range of mines or walls of light.
  • Pull can be used on river krusts (even closed ones) to uproot them.
  • Daud can use Pull to uproot Blood Briars from a safe distance.
    • It can also be used to cancel the effect of a Blood Briar's Pull.
  • Daud can use a pulled enemy as a shield to block projectiles or arc pylon blasts.
  • Pull can be used to kill groups of rats easily: simply target one rat, use Pull, and the rest will die.
    • With the Carrion Killer bone charm, this technique can allow Daud to quickly gain enough adrenaline to use Blood Thirsty.
  • Daud can use Pull to get items otherwise out of reach items, such as through bars.
  • Pull can be used to throw things that have been pulled to the user. This is very effective for ranged weaponry.
  • Releasing Pull throws an enemy away from Daud. If over water or a drop, they can die.
