Best loadout for Onryo build in Dead by Daylight

The main four perks you need to focus on are Sloppy Butcher, Hex: Ruin, Make Your Choice, and Hex: Face the Darkness. If you want to learn more about them, then look at the table below:

Deluge of Fear
Add ons
Old Newspaper — Increases the Manifestation invisibility duration by 33%

Reiko’s Watch — Increases the invisibility duration while Demanifested by 33%
Sloppy Butcher — Wounds inflicted by basic attacks cause Survivors to suffer from the Hemorrhage and Mangled Status effects.

Hex:Ruin — All generators are affected by this work. While a generator is not being repaired by a Survivor, it will immediately and automatically regress repair progress at 100% of the normal regression speed.

Make Your Choice — When a survivor rescues another from a hook at least 32 meters away from you, this perk causes the Survivor to scream and applies the Exposed status effect to them for 60 seconds.

Hex: Face the Darkness: While the Hex is active, all other Survivors outside of your Terror Radius will scream every 25 seconds, revealing their positions and auras for 2 seconds.

These are all the perks you need to have to make an effective Onryo build. She is an interesting Killer to play as, especially when it comes to the entertainment value you get. But if you are not connecting with this Killer, you can always try to play some other Killer such as the Alien in Dead by Daylight.
