Perks are passive abilities that you can obtain as you descend deeper into the Mountain, augmenting you and your abilities or granting completely new abilities

A set of three perks are offered on an altar near the exit of each Holy Mountain that you visit. Upon selecting one, the other two perks disappear.

Perk Rerolling

Perks can be rerolled using the 'perk reroll' structure - resembling a set of weighing scales - located at the exit of the Holy Mountain. This replaces any perks on the altar with a new draw from the pool.

The perk reroll initially costs 200 Gold nugget.png and will double in price every time it is used (200 Gold nugget.png, 400 Gold nugget.png, 800 Gold nugget.png, and so on). Rerolling only affects perks that are currently on the altar and will not spawn new perks if a perk has already been taken. Rerolling will pull from the entire pool of perks, allowing for the possibility of collecting multiple instances of the same perk, aka perk stacking.

Rerolling will not affect the price of previously visited holy mountains: rerolling once raises the price from 200 Gold nugget.png to 400 Gold nugget.png, but the price of all previously visited holy mountains remains 200 Gold nugget.png. For example:

  1. Player has visited two holy mountains (A and B) without claiming a perk. Both holy mountains start at a reroll cost of 200 Gold nugget.png.
  2. Player then rerolls perks in B for 200 Gold nugget.png (cost in B goes up to 400 Gold nugget.png).
  3. Player then goes back to A and is able to reroll for 200 Gold nugget.png (cost in A goes up to 800 Gold nugget.png, but the cost in B remains at 400 Gold nugget.png).

Rerolling is normally limited by the fact that it is only possible for you to possess 2.15 billion Gold nugget.png (for a max of 23 rerolls). At this point your gold display shows &inf;, but you will still be unable to purchase the next reroll.

Reroll Breaking

It is possible to break the reroll machine, by visiting at least 39 machines in Parallel Worlds without re-rolling most of them, and then looping back to re-visit and roll each of them once. This will roll the cost above the breaking point of 54 trillion.

Once completed, the statues will start to display only single-digits. This situation will last for another few hundred rerolls (one reported at "970"), before the machines are fixed back to an unaffordably large amount.

Breaking the reroll machine is sometimes used for extra-long runs, or to pursue various Achievement Pillars or other goals.

One technique is to dig directly downwards from a reroll machine, causing it to drop out of "range" of the Holy Mountain (a little bit further than just out of view). This way, if you take a perk and the rest vanish, but while the machine is out of detection-range, then the machine will still have its price attached and can be rerolled later. This allows you to save all the reroll machines AND take a few priority perks during your first visit. It speeds up the process a lot, as any perks with a stack limit can be removed from the pool, and you can take extra perks and perk lotteries on the way down the first time.

The reroll machine still works from around the middle of the biome and will be able to reroll any still-loaded perks from that distance. Additionally, if you happen to find a Leggy Mimic, the Leggy Mutation perk can also be rerolled if a reroll machine is close enough.

Perk Stacking

Many of the perks in Noita, including Essences, can be repeatedly stacked by means of going to Parallel Worlds or making use of the reroll altar. Unstackable perks will be removed from the perk pool when first picked. Damage immunity perks that overlap can both be picked, but stacking the immunity will have no effect (for example, Oil Blood confers the same immunity as the Fire Immunity perk).

The behaviour of stackable perks varies. Some examples of stacking behaviour are:

The full list of stacking effects is yet to be determined. While some perks have a set stack limit, all other stackable perks have a default stack limit of 128.

Normal Perks

These are perks that can be found in Holy Mountains.
Icon Name Message Stacks Notes
Perk critical hit.png
Critical Hit + You get more critical hits. Yes Increases critical hit chance all of your spells by 10%.

Stacks linearly, adding 10% critical hit chance per stack.

Perk breath underwater.png
Breathless You can no longer drown, and can move in liquids with ease. Yes You swim faster, and have Immunity to suffocating in liquids, gasses, and even being buried in powders, like snow and coal. You will still be damaged by acid and lava.

If you are polymorphed into a small worm or similar and transform back while inside of a wall, you will not suffocate in the wall.

This affects fall speed as well. Stacking a couple or more makes movement in liquid even faster than on land.

Anti-synergistic with Freeze Field, as you will no longer be able to swim in any liquid that can be frozen by it.

Perk extra money.png
Greed You gain double the gold per nugget. Yes Stacking doubles the multiplier further.

For example, stacking twice will grant 4x the gold per nugget, and thrice 8x, and so on.

Perk extra money trick kill.png
Trick Greed 4x instead of 2x gold is dropped when death is an accident. Yes

Max 5, but not removed from the pool

Methods of achieving trick kills include, but are not limited to; killing enemies with physics damage (like from Summon Rock, thrown Emerald Tablets, etc), when enemies burn to death, as well as electric currents running through liquids and metal (such as from Electric Charge).

Deaths from material damage (like Poison) will also work.

"Non-projectile" explosions from environmental explosives or explosive chemical reactions (and even a few spells like Dormant Crystal and Unstable Crystal, along with their trigger variants) can also cause trick kills.

Stacks exponentially, i.e. 2 stacks will grant 8x gold, 3 stacks 16x gold etc.

Perk Money is Forever.jpg
Gold is Forever Gold nuggets never disappear. No This perk can be incredibly valuable, allowing you to get every bit of gold without needing to rush.

It can cause performance issues in long runs where gold nuggets may pile up.

Gold nuggets can still be destroyed via Luminous Drill and Black Hole.

Synergizes well with perks that provide Blood Money, as you will essentially have healing nuggets of (red) gold around until they're picked up (also letting you defer picking them up if you have full health at that moment).

Perk Trick Blood Money.png
Trick Blood Money Blood money is dropped when death is an accident. No All gold nuggets dropped via trick kills will heal you small amounts in proportion to the value of each individual nugget. The nuggets will be red rather than gold, so it's quite easy to distinguish.

Methods of achieving trick kills include, but are not limited to; killing enemies with physics damage (like from Summon Rock, thrown Emerald Tablets, etc), when enemies burn to death, as well as electric currents running through liquids and metal (such as from Electric Charge). Deaths from material damage (like Poison) will also work.

This perk does not stack, however Trick Greed does, and will synergize well with Trick Blood Money, as it will increase the number of blood nuggets dropped.

This perk also synergizes very well with Gold is Forever preventing the blood nuggets from despawning, and can be left for healing later if need be.

Perk exploding gold.png
Exploding Gold Gold dropped by enemies explodes when it disappears, is picked up or touched by other enemies! No, but not removed from the pool The explosion can destroy terrain, but doesn't hurt you.
Perk hover boost.png
Strong Levitation You can fly 100% longer. Yes Your levitation bar is doubled.

Because it is a direct extension, to recharge your flight to max capacity, you must also wait on the ground for twice as long.

Stacking doubles the levitation bar again with every stack.

Perk faster levitation.png
Faster Levitation You levitate 75% faster. Yes

Max 2, but not removed from the pool

Stacking increases levitation speed further.
Perk movement faster.png
Faster Movement Your movement speed is increased. Yes You move about ~40% faster. Stacking increases speed further.
Perk strong kick.png
Never Skip Leg Day Your kicks deal extra damage and knockback. Yes Increases kick damage by 60 and greatly increases enemy knockback.

Kicking physical objects (carts, crates, etc) will send them flying.

Perk Telekinetic Kick.png
Telekinetic Kick You gain new telekinetic powers. No Pressing the kick button now causes objects you are looking at to hover directly in front of you.

Pressing kick again with a held object launches it in the direction you are looking.

This may be used to collect gold nuggets from a distance.

Stacking this perk with Never Skip Leg Day will allow you to throw objects even harder. Stacking too many will usually cause objects to "skip" past enemies, leaving them unharmed.

You cannot perform normal kicks with Telekinetic Kick, preventing you from kicking powders around, and no longer being able to disarm or damage enemies with direct kicks.

Objects that are grabbed and thrown with Telekinetic Kick will not directly be able to trigger trick kills, which can make utilizing perks that rely on them (such as Trick Blood Money) more difficult.

You may also use picked up objects to provide you with portable cover, though it may get in the way of your shots.

This perk also synergizes with Lukki Mutation allowing player to fly by pressing up and using hovering object.

Perk repelling cape.png
Repelling Cape Stains drop at a fast rate (when moving). Yes

Max 8

Stains go away much faster while you are moving. This also applies to potions, making the effects they grant much harder to maintain.

Synergizes well with perks that require a clean cape, such as Invisibility or Stainless Armour.

Being constantly dry will make you much more likely to be set on fire.

Stacking makes stains fall off even faster. Just two stacks dries stains practically as soon as you exit the liquid. However, stacking ten or more times will reverse the normal affect making stains unaffected by movement, although stains can still be removed through other means.

Perk exploding corpses.png
Exploding Corpses Enemies explode upon death, but you gain immunity to explosion damage. No Explosions often scatter gold, set off traps, and start fires.

By destroying at least most of the corpse, this perk may lessen the amount of blood and overall clutter.

Perk saving grace.png
Saving Grace If you would die and have more than 1 HP, your HP is set to 1 instead. No Prevents death from a single high-power attack, but is ineffective against rapid damage. Unlike the Extra Life perk, Saving Grace is reusable, and will recharge after healing above
1 ♥

Saving Grace will not save you while polymorphed.

Perk invisibility.png
Invisibility You're invisible. Stains, casting spells, kicking and taking damage makes you temporarily visible. No Grants you an infinite Effect invisibility.png Invisible effect. Synergizes well with Repelling Cape.

Having two instances of the perk removes the wait time to go invisible when a stain is removed, but not when you kick or use a wand.

Spells affected by a Boomerang modifier will not arc towards you while invisible.

An Emerald Tablet can be thrown safely without removing the invisibility effect.

Perk global gore.png
More Blood Blood blood blood. Yes All creatures (including you) bleed more.

This includes unusual 'blood', such as Worm Blood (such as Mato) or Lava (fire-themed enemies such as Stendari) when hurt.

This also affects items that give off material when destroyed, such as oil lamps.

Can synergize well with Vampirism.
Stacking increases the amount of extra blood.

Perk remove fog of war.png
All-Seeing Eye You can see everywhere. No Removes all darkness from the world, revealing the entire screen without needing to see an area first.

Works everywhere, even in places the spell variant would not.(such as Dark Cave)

Perk Levitation Trail.png
Levitation Trail When levitating, you leave a trail of magical sparks that harm passing creatures. Yes Similar to the Barrier spell. The sparks from this perk deal 3 damage each and may linger in the air for approximately 5 seconds.

Sparks spawned by this perk do not damage objects such as explosive barrels.

The sparks are projectiles and are affected by #Homing Shots. When homing, the sparks can freely move through walls.

Possible bug (confirmation needed): The sparks are able to damage friendly characters or pets such as the Homunculus or Plague Rats, which will cause those characters to retaliate against you. Because these pets are immune to other attacks by you, this is probably a bug.

The sparks can collide with the Energy Shield spell and Permanent Shield perk, causing them to momentarily break and recharge.

You will not create a trail while invisible, however cannot become invisible while the trail is firing.
If you wish to utilize the Invisibility perk, you must wait for it to activate before levitating.

Makes becoming polymorphed even more hazardous, as they may damage you and kill you.

The damage it deals is attributed to you, and as such will trigger a Vaihdosmestari's position swap with you and will not cause trick kills.

Perk vampirism.png
Vampirism You lose 25% maximum health, but can replenish health by drinking blood. Blood doesn't affect satiation level. No Blood can be drank from the world or from a flask, the latter restoring
+4 ♥
per 10% (a single drink).

Health per amount of blood drank is the same whether drank from a flask or the world.

It synergizes well with the More Blood perk, and any other means of generating more blood from enemies. The Unlimited Spells perk is also great with Vampirism, since spells which produce blood (such as the Blood material spell) will have unlimited uses. Also synergizes well with slice damage spells.

Anti-synergistic with Eat Your Vegetables as blood can no longer be used for that.
Anti-synergistic with Freeze Field, as all blood near you will freeze, and getting blood into a flask will become significantly more difficult.
It also pairs poorly with Exploding Corpses, because you won't be able to dig or blow up corpses for additional blood.

Max health removed is calculated from your current total max health. Remember to pick up Full Health Regeneration after picking up the perk.

Recommended to fill a flask with blood and drink from it, rather than the ground directly as this will prevent you from becoming sick due to accidentally eating rotten meat, and will allow you to 'filter' what you end up drinking, in case other liquids are in the vicinity (especially ones that cause you to throw up like Invisiblium and Ambrosia, which make collecting blood harder).

Perk extra hp.png
Extra Health (One-off) You gain 50% extra maximum health. Yes Bonus calculated from player's current maximum Health at time the time of acquiring.

Does not affect any future changes to max health. May be stacked.

This will not work if Glass Cannon has been taken.

Perk hearts more extra hp.png
Stronger Hearts Hearts bestow more maximum health. Yes

Max 9

Increases HP gained from Extra Max Health and the rarer Large Extra Max Health pickups.

Works by increasing a multiplier for these pickups.

You starts out with a 1x multiplier for these pickups (
+25 ♥
for Extra Max Health,
+50 ♥
for Large Extra Max Health).

The first time this perk is picked, the multiplier is increased to 2x (
+50 ♥
for Extra Max Health,
+100 ♥
for Large Extra Max Health).
Subsequent stacks increase the multiplier by a further 0.25x (additive), so 5 stacks are needed to achieve a 3x multiplier, and 9 stacks are needed to achieve a 4x multiplier (
+100 ♥
for Extra Max Health,
+200 ♥
for Large Extra Max Health).

Additional stacks beyond 9 will have no effect, even if more are acquired.

This will not have any benefit if Glass Cannon has been taken.

Perk glass cannon.png
Glass Cannon Your spells are 5 times as powerful, but your maximum health becomes 50 and cannot be increased by normal hearts. Yes

Max 2

Explosions and blasts caused by you are 5x larger. If health is below
50 ♥
, it will be set to
50 ♥
. Max health can still be reduced below
50 ♥
via Vampirism.

Picking up a health increase will give the message: "Health increased by [#] ..but some sort of curse blocked the increase of maximum health!"

Your maximum HP can only be increased using the Holy Mountain Health Regeneration pickups, but re-applying this perk will reset your max HP to
50 ♥
. Picking up Maximum Health upgrades will not reset the health to
50 ♥

You can only have two copies of Glass Cannon, any additional stacks after that will have no effect.

Glass Cannon has a stacking limit shared with other damage multiplying game effects, explained in detail on Glass Cannon page.

Perk Living on the Edge.png
Living on the Edge Your spells do 3x damage when you're under 25 HP or 25% of maximum health. Yes

Max 3, but not removed from the pool

You can stack this perk up to three times, squaring (x9) or even cubing (x27) the damage multiplier.

The damage multiplier from Living on the Edge stacks with Glass Cannon to a maximum of 75x if 2 Glass Cannons are picked up before Living on the Edge, 45x if 1 Living on the Edge and 1 Glass Cannon are picked up in any order followed by a second Living on the Edge, or 27x for 3 Livings on the Edge). Stacking limits are explained in full detail on the Living on the Edge page.

Perk respawn.png
Extra Life (One-off) Upon death you respawn with 100 health. Yes Upon dying, your health is set to
100 ♥
once, and you have 30 frames (~0.5sec) of damage invulnerability.

You do not 'respawn' somewhere safe.
You will not be saved from death while polymorphed.

Can trigger multiple times when having several stacks.

Perk worm attractor.png
Worm Attractor Worms find you attractive. Yes Causes worms to be attracted towards your general area.

Seems to increase rate of Jättimato and other worms. Also seems to increase the number of Kalmamato that spawn in the Temple of the Art.

This perk can make getting Worm Blood and Health Pickups much easier.
It synergizes with Melee Immunity quite well, allowing you to use the worms to dig through extremely durable materials like temple brickwork without risk of direct harm.
However, the ghastly Death Worms (Kalmamato in-game), which deal curse damage, will still be a threat.

Perk enemy detector.png
Enemy Radar You can sense nearby enemies. No Red circles will appear around you, indicating the distance and direction to nearby enemies.

Enemies inside the screen will also be marked by their locations. This can also be used to spot Mimics.
The larger a marker is, the closer the enemy.

Perk wand radar.png
Wand Radar You can sense nearby wands. No Green circles will appear around you, indicating the distance and direction to nearby wands.

The larger a marker is, the closer the wand.

Perk protection fire.png
Fire Immunity You take no damage from fire. No You can no longer be set on fire.

Does not prevent damage from lava, fiery explosions, and direct fire attacks like those from Stendari.

Perk protection radioactivity.png
Toxic Immunity You take no damage from toxic sludge and other toxic things. No Prevents the Toxic Sludge stain, causing Toxic Sludge to remove stains instead.

Also prevents damage from Toxic Gas, Toxic Ice, Toxic Rock, and Toxic Gold.

Does not prevent damage from Acid, Frozen Acid, Poison, and/or poison stains.

Perk protection explosion.png
Explosion Immunity You take no direct damage from explosions. No Player is still affected by harmful material generated by certain explosions, including fire, toxic sludge, acid, electricity, and/or freezing vapour.
Perk protection melee.png
Melee Immunity You take no damage from close-range enemy attacks. No Can cause many enemies to become completely harmless to you.

This includes 'tentacle-type' attacks such as the Jättikonna's tongue and the Turso's tentacle.

Perk protection electricity.png
Electricity Immunity You take no damage from electric shocks. No This perk may be preferable over the Electricity perk, which is capable of activating traps and triggering explosives.

Note that many electricity-based spells also deal explosion damage, and so this perk is not sufficient to grant immunity to Lightning Bolt and similar spells.

Perk teleportitis.png
Teleportitis You take 20% less damage. You teleport away every time you're hurt. No Any amount of damage (including damage-over-time effects like fire or toxic sludge) will make player randomly teleport to a random off-screen location.

This includes blocked damage, and even healing damage from healing projectiles.
Can be used when speed running.
Can teleport into harmful material, such as lava or acid.

Perk teleportitis dodge.png
Teleportitis Dodge You teleport a short distance away when an enemy projectile is near. No A much more stable and reliable version of #Teleportitis.

A circle is displayed around you, which shows the radius in which you will teleport when the effect is activated. The effect takes roughly 2 seconds to recharge after it has been activated.

Perk stainless armour.png
Stainless Armour You take 50% less damage as long as you have no active stain status effect. Yes Stacking halves damage every time.

With many stacks will makes you immune to any damage.
Synergizes well with the perks Repelling Cape, Gas Blood and Freeze Field.

Perk edit wands everywhere.png
Tinker with Wands Everywhere A divine blessing allows you to tinker with wands everywhere. No Enables the editing of wands outside of the Holy Mountains.

Allows you to strip away the spells from any wand you find, as well as replace spells with depleted charges with fresh counterparts on a whim.

Perk no wand editing.png
No Wand Tinkering Wands cannot be tinkered with, but enemies may drop blood money. No Gives a 6% chance for an enemy to drop blood money instead of normal gold.

Removing wand editing in exchange for enemies sometimes dropping blood money (which heals a small amount when picked up) is a bad play in almost any situation, because without wand editing, you will have to rely entirely on a wand you built before receiving the perk, or randomly generated wands found in the game.

If you have both this perk and the Tinker with Wands Everywhere perk, you can edit wands in the Holy Mountain as normal, but not outside of it.
Having multiples of either/both perks does not seem to change this interaction.

Perk Wand Experimenter.png
Wand Experimenter Firing newly found and unmodified wands heals you. Yes This perk heals a different amount for shuffle and non-shuffle wands, over the course of 7 casts with each cast halving the HP healed per use.
+104 ♥
per wand (
+48 ♥
+24 ♥
+12 ♥
+8 ♥
+6 ♥
+4 ♥
+2 ♥
+69 ♥
per wand (
+30 ♥
+15 ♥
+9 ♥
+6 ♥
+4 ♥
+3 ♥
+2 ♥

The perk still works even if the new and unedited wand has no spells on it, or has a spell similar to Torch that has no cost or cast effect.
The perk still works if spells are removed from a wand if they are dropped on the ground, as long as no spells are added or re-ordered.

Perk ability actions materialized.png
Bombs Materialized Bomb-like spells can be placed in the ITEMS space in inventory and used like throwable items. No The TNT, Bomb, Glitter Bomb, Propane Tank, Holy Bomb, Giga Holy Bomb and Summon Rock spells may now occupy item slots.

Spells can still only be moved around the inventory in Holy Mountain, except with Tinker with Wands Everywhere perk.

Perk projectile homing.png
Homing Shots Your spells home towards enemies very slightly. No Static projectiles such as Death Cross, Slime Mist and the sparks of Levitation Trail will reliably follow targets, while fast projectiles like Magic Arrow will only curve slightly.
Perk projectile homing shooter.png
Boomerang Spells Your spells arc towards you, but gain extra speed and deal extra damage. No Be wary of using explosives with this perk. Long-lasting spells, such as Dormant Crystal, can follow you around indefinitely.

Conversely, high-velocity spells like Spark Bolt may curve up or down in an odd manner due to their attraction to you.

This perk can throw off your aim, so this perk is not recommended for novice players.
The perk increases spell lifetime by 20 frames (1/3 second), and synergizes well with Luminous Drill.
The perk adds 15 projectile damage to spells, anti-synergizes with Healing Bolt.
This can be counteracted by Light Shot, Piercing Shot or Divide By.

The perk has little to no effect on depleted projectile spells when used with Greek letter spells.
For example, if you have 1 magic missile left and you shoot it, it will curve towards you.
However, if you have 0 magic missiles and you shoot one with a Greek letter spell, then the missile travels in a linear fashion. It can also have a somewhat broken interaction with the chainsaw spell, resulting in a ranged chainsaw that can deal massive damage.

Perk Unlimited Spells.png
Unlimited Spells Most spells are now unlimited. No Does not work for: Black Hole (+ Death Trigger), Healing Bolt, Circle of Vigour, Matter Eater, Mana to Damage, Worm Launcher, Omega Black Hole, Giga Holy Bomb, Giga Nuke, Touch of Gold, Spells To Nukes, Spells To Black Holes, Spells To Death Crosses, Spells To Magic Missiles, Matosade, Meteorisade, Summon Taikasauva, and The End of Everything.
Perk freeze field.png
Freeze Field Liquids freeze in your presence. No Extinguishes fires, and freezes most liquids near you, but will not freeze liquids that do not have a frozen material counterpart (like oil or magic potions).

Also gives immunity to fire damage, even to some direct fire attacks like those from a Pikkutulikärpänen. Additionally makes you virtually immune to Lava and Poison, as those normally extremely dangerous liquids are harmless when frozen.

Synergizes poorly with #More Blood, frequently causing you to become trapped in your own frozen blood mid-battle. Also removes the ability to gather freezable liquids.

Synergizes well with Stainless Armour, as fewer liquids will be able to stain you, even preventing your own blood from getting on you (however you may get stuck in your frozen blood, especially if you have #Slime Blood).
If you have Oil Blood, you can prevent getting stuck in ice, as oil will not freeze, however this is anti-synergistic with #Stainless Armour, so #Gas Blood is the best chioce.

Perk gas fire.png
Gas Fire Gases near you ignite automatically. No Will ignite any gas in a decent radius around you.

If you don't yet have Toxic Immunity, this will provide protection against Toxic Gas.
Exceptionally useful for its unique ability to protect against Freezing Vapours.
This perk will also nullify the risk of suffocating in gas clouds without Breathless.

While you are normally not likely to catch on fire as a direct result of the gas ignitions, teleporting into gas clouds will likely cause you to catch fire. You should also be wary of fires which may start as a result of igniting small amounts of common gases in the environment, such as Smoke or Steam.

Note that Cloud material, although static and solid to non-physics bodies, is actually a gas, so navigating the Cloudscape with this perk may be difficult.

Perk dissolve powders.png
Dissolve Powders Sand and other soft, powdery materials dissolve quickly in your presence. No A small radius around you will instantly destroy certain materials, specifically

See the Materials page for more details.

This is especially useful when utilizing the Ground To Sand spell.

Perk slime blood.png
Slime Blood You bleed slime, but slime no longer slows you down and you have higher projectile resistance. Yes Confers 25% projectile resistance, applied directly to your current damage multipliers.

This effect can stack, and also stacks with other sources of projectile resistance.
Also increases how much you bleed (more stacks will not increase the amount bled).

Taking this perk after Oil Blood will overwrite the material you bleed, causing you to bleed slime instead of oil, but you will still retain the increased blood multiplier and the fire immunity.

Perk oil blood.png
Oil Blood You bleed flammable oil, but are immune to fire. No One of three perks which can grant immunity to fire (the others being Fire Immunity and Freeze Field), making it very useful when you don't already have either of the others.

This perk will not make you immune to the slippery effects of oil, which can be a nuisance.
Also increases how much you bleeds (more stacks will not increase the amount bled).

Taking this perk after Slime Blood will overwrite the material you bleed, causing you to bleed oil instead of slime, but you will still retain the increased blood multiplier and the projectile resistance.

Perk shield.png
Permanent Shield You gain a small, permanent shield. Yes

Max 5

A small shield will make smaller projectiles bounce off and break after a certain amount of damage.

The shield will reappear shortly after breaking.
Stacks with other shield spells for increased protection. Higher stacks create a bigger shield.
Damaging projectiles bounce off of shields, potentially hitting enemies or explosives.

Due to its smaller size, the shield may not always protect you from very high-velocity or large-hitbox projectiles.

The shield is damaged by Levitation Trail sparks, even though you are not.

Stacking the perk will result in more layers of shield which must be broken individually, giving several layers of resistance to projectile damage.

Whilst only 5 will appear by default, it is possible to get over 100 shields (spoiler), and even possible change their color (spoiler). There is no limit to these.

Perk revenge explosion.png
Revenge Explosion You release a magical explosion upon taking damage, and gain 25% resistance against explosions. Yes The perk will trigger on any amount of damage.

Your explosion can activate other explosives and create fires, but will not itself set you on fire.

The explosion destroys many sources of damage, including Freezing Vapour and other harmful gases, making it a useful alternative to Gas Fire. It can also eliminate Earthquake material, Lava, Acid, some enemy projectiles, etc.

Confers 25% explosion resistance, applied directly to your current damage multipliers.
This effect can stack, and also stacks with other sources of explosion resistance.

Perk revenge tentacle.png
Revenge Tentacle You summon a monstrous tentacle upon taking damage, and gain 25% resistance against projectiles. Yes Causes a tentacle to emerge from you and hit anything that damages you.

This also includes taking damage from various passive sources of damage, like lava or damage-over-time effects, causing the tentacle to sometimes flail randomly.

Confers 25% projectile resistance, applied directly to your current damage multipliers.
This effect can stack, and also stacks with other sources of projectile resistance.

Perk revenge bullets.png
Revenge Bullets You return fire when hit by projectiles, and gain 20% resistance against explosions and projectiles. Yes The perk has a 'cooldown' of 10 frames, or 1/6th of a second, during which it will not trigger.

The return projectile is not guaranteed to hit, but will be aimed at the enemy which fired the shot (if it is still alive).

The speed of the return projectile is random, typically somewhere around the speed of a Spark Bolt, and the damage of the return projectile is double the damage of the received shot.

Confers 20% projectile and explosion resistance, applied directly to your current damage multipliers.
This effect can stack, and also stacks with other sources of projectile or explosion resistance.

Perk attack foot.png
Lukki Mutation You grow curious additional limbs that fight for you. Yes

Max 3

Slightly increases movement speed and gives you unlimited flight, but you can only fly while at least one limb is touching a solid surface. Good for claustrophobic areas but severely limits your vertical mobility in large open spaces.

You will gain a burst of speed when surfacing from a liquid, and this can be used to reach higher surfaces.
The Faster Levitation perk can similarly increase your vertical reach.

This perk can be stacked multiple times. Stacking increases length of the legs as well as movement speed gained from the perk. Each extra perk multiplies horizontal movement speed (but not vertical speed) by 1.25, and multiplies the maximum distance you can be from a wall/floor by 1.5.

This perk also synergizes with Telekinetic Kick allowing you to fly by pressing up and using hovering object.

By taking the perks Lukki Mutation (or Leggy Mutation) twice, along with Lukki Minion, you will trigger the Lukki Transformation. In this state you have a slightly new look, and move 10% faster.

Perk plague rats.png
Plague Rats Dying enemies release rats to serve your bidding! All rats become your friend. Yes

Max 5

Rats no longer attempt to harm you, except after friendly fire, due to Berserkium or possibly with the #More Hatred perk.

Plague Rats are much stronger than regular rats but disappear after a while. Good for combating and distracting groups of ground based opponents.

Damage and HP of Plague Rats scales with their Y coordinate, meaning they will be stronger the deeper you are below the mountain.

Additional stacks will cause more rats to spawn with each enemy death.

Collecting all 3 of Plague Rats, Revenge Rats, and Spontaneous Generation will cause you to grow a rat tail.
A rat tail increases movement speed by 15%.

Perk remove worm and lukki digging.png
Feared by Worms Worms run away from you, and worms and lukki enemies no longer destroy terrain while burrowing. No Primarily used to prevent the gods from being angered by Worms and Lukki from destroying the brickwork around the Holy Mountain sanctuaries. Also makes them safer to you.

Will also prevent them from destroying items like Emerald Tablets, Chaos Dice, etc.

A major downside to this perk is that you can no longer use Worm/Lukki tunnels as a means of returning to previous areas, and polymorphing into a worm will likely result in getting stuck in the terrain (and suffocating if you don't have #Breathless).

Perk projectile repulsion.png
Projectile Repulsion Field Most projectiles are repulsed by your presence, but you take slightly more projectile damage. Yes You take 26% more damage from projectiles.

Projectile spells you cast fly faster / further as they are repelled from the field, such as Black Holes now going 3x+ the distance.

However, this also causes a very slight variation in their flight pattern from your body, i.e. you'll point straight and it will go slightly up or down (A Linear Arc or Homing can resolve this).

Has (solvable) Healing Bolt#Anti-Synergies

Perk projectile slow field.png
Projectile Slower Projectiles near you slow down. Yes Every stack will cause projectiles to decelerate quicker, including yours.

This can be countered by Projectile Repulsion Field's projectile acceleration, and even synergizes with Projectile Repulsion Field for increased projectile protection.

Perk projectile repulsion sector.png
Projectile Repulsion Sector Projectiles that fly into a small sector in front of you get blown away. Yes Behaves as a much stronger version of the Projectile Repulsion Field.

Goes outward in a cone formation with a repulsion zone behind the barrier, which throws enemy projectiles off course.

Projectile Repulsion Sector gets stronger with each perk stack.

Your projectiles will also be affected as they pass the edge of the sector.

Perk projectile eater sector.png
Projectile Eater Projectiles that fly into a small sector behind you disappear. No Stacking has no effect and all projectiles, including yours, will be consumed by the field.

Does appear to affect static projectiles.

Perk Phasing.png
Phasing Projectiles seemingly phase through you. Yes Every frame that a projectile in a small radius around you moves slower than a basic Spark Bolt, there is a 50% chance for that projectile to teleport behind you instead of hitting you.

Slower projectiles will be more likely to phase. Does not protect you from your own spells.

(Hidden stat): Also increases damage taken by projectiles and explosives by 33%.

Applies to healing projectiles from Hiisi Healers, making them much less effective at healing you when charmed.

Synergizes with Projectile Repulsion Field and Projectile Slower, because the field will slow down projectile speeds, giving more opportunities for phasing.

Perk Angry ghost.png
Angry Ghost An angry spirit comes to your aid, copying nearby spells and projectiles. Yes Spawns a red ghost that follows you around. This ghost will copy and shoot projectiles shot by you, enemies, and traps.

Projectiles fired in this manner do not appear to harm you, although their explosions still can. Additionally, Healing Bolt can heal you if fired by the ghost into water or with Piercing Shot.

The ghost will copy some normally limited spells, such as Black Hole, and will fire using the cast-delay of the currently held wand. Both of these traits can be used to great effect.

Collecting all 3 of Angry Ghost, Hungry Ghost, and Mournful Spirit will give you a ghost companion and increase the levitation time by 15%.

Perk homunculus.png
Homunculus Every time you leave a Holy Mountain, a helpful homunculus is summoned. Yes A homunculus will spawn whenever you leave a Holy Mountain for the first time. Triggering the collapse is not necessary and it doesn't matter if you leave towards the bottom or top.

There is no limit to how many homunculi can follow you at any time. The homunculus attacks with one of 4 different types of projectiles.

Stacking the perk gives Homunculi extra damage, and increases the maximum count of Homunculi you can have.

They will attack any non-player creatures and will teleport to you if they are separated. They will drown themselves in liquids even if it would be possible to swim to safety.

They can damage you. Given their tendency to teleport close to you they are a hazard for players with little health or close to dangerous environment.

Homunculi may directly target you if polymorphed into a normally hostile enemy, resulting in almost immediate death. Exercise extreme caution around Chaotic Polymorphine.

Perk electricity.png
Electricity You're immune to electric damage, but metal and liquids around you electrify constantly. Look out! No Electrified metals and liquids can cause combustion and activation of explosives. Also makes collecting flasks in liquids much harder.

Synergizes well with perks relying on trick kills (such as #Trick Blood Money), as enemies killed by the electric current will be considered as such. (Sea of Water)

Has an anti-synergy with Teleportitis, as even though the damage from the electric current is blocked, it may still activate Teleportitis, and makes it even harder to control.

Perk attract items.png
Attract Gold Gold nuggets gravitate towards you. Yes

Max 6

Attracts gold nuggets towards you and increases in strength the closer it is to you.

Additional stacks increase the attraction strength and the attraction range.

Does not apply to gold powder.

Perk extra knockback.png
Extra Knockback on Spells Your spells knock enemies around with more force. Yes This perk will fling enemies further away when hit by a projectile. Useful for fighting melee enemies.

When using weak, but fast spells like Bouncing Burst, you may find yourself disadvantaged by the fact that your aim is thrown off by the enemy's recoiling.

The minimum 'knockback' value to cause an enemy to 'flinch' is generally either 0 or quite large, so this perk will generally cause enemies that are already susceptible to knockback to be knocked back further, but will not usually result in knocking back more enemy types (for example, past the Underground Jungle most enemies have a minimum knockback value of 100000 to stagger, while this perk adds 6).

Perk lower spread.png
Concentrated Spells Your spells have lower spread and extra damage, but have increased cast delay. Yes For every spell with a type of Projectile, Static Projectile or Material:
  • Add 12.5 projectile damage to the cast state.
  • Increase cast delay by 2 frames (0.033 of a second).
  • Add 10 recoil (which is equivalent to a Damage Plus).

The added recoil can be used as a crude jetpack or jump extender by firing opposite of where you wish to go.

Might slow digging operations, as you will be pushed back from whatever you're digging without careful spell arrangement.
Chainsaw wands in particular become a jetpack.

Has an anti-synergy with Healing Bolt - the bolt will harm you for 12.5 damage per projectile or static projectile spell in the cast. This can be counteracted by Light Shot, Piercing Shot, or Divide By, or by staining yourself with Ambrosia.

The Best Perk In Noita?! - DunkOrSlam
Perk low recoil.png
Low Recoil Recoil caused by your spells is greatly reduced, but your spells fly slightly slower. No Decreases projectile speed by 20%.
Perk bounce.png
Bouncing Spells Almost all your spells bounce around and last longer. No This perk will cause spells like Energy Orb and Magic Missile to no longer immediately detonate on impact with terrain.

As a result, their digging potential becomes greatly hampered.

Increases spell lifetime by 60 frames (1 second) and makes them bounce 3 more times.
Synergizes well with Luminous Drill. This can't be counteracted by Remove Bounce.

Perk fast projectiles.png
Faster Projectiles Your projectile spells fly faster than before. No Increases projectile speed by 75%.

It multiplies in power based on how many spells are bundled with a multicast.

Perk always cast.png
Always Cast (One-off) A random Always Cast spell is added to the wand in your hand, up to a maximum of 4. Yes A wand can have a maximum of 4 Always Cast slots.

Taking this perk is always a gamble, as many spells can be detrimental as an Always Cast. When applied to the starter bomb wand it may create a powerful rapid fire wand in early games.

It will never give you a spell that is categorized as Multicast, Material, or Other.

Spell/Category Probability
Random Tier 6 Projectile spell 50%
Damage Plus 8.33...%
Critical Plus 8.33...%
Homing 8.33...%
Speed Up 8.33...%
Acid Trail 8.33...%
Slithering Path 8.33...%

Trivia: Prior to the 2023 bugfix patches: The perk was bugged and couldn't select spells from Static Projectile, Modifier or Utility categories like it was meant to. Instead, when one of those categories is picked, a projectile spell was added instead.

Perk extra mana.png
High Mana, Low Capacity (One-off) Your currently held wand loses half its capacity, but gains more mana. Yes Increases max mana of the wand between 100-600, up to 20000.

Randomly increases the mana charge speed by 100-300, or multiplies it by 2x to 3.5x, whichever is less. Caps at 20000.

Halves the wand's capacity, rounding down. The exception is if a wand would be left with zero capacity.

Perk No More Shuffle.png
No More Shuffle Most of the wands will be non shuffling. The wands you carry with you turn into non-shufflers too. No All carried wands have shuffle set to 'no'.

Most future wands generated will be non-shuffle. Wands that would have been shufflers still have their superior stats.

Does not affect wands that have already generated if they are outside of the loaded area when the perk is picked up.
Will also affect wands that have already been picked up and left on the floor.

Perk no more knockback.png
No More Knockback Enemies can no longer knock you back. No Also prevents you from being knocked out of the air when hit.
Perk projectile duplication.png
Projectile Duplication Your projectile spells have a chance to duplicate, but you're more vulnerable to projectile damage Yes You have a 50% chance to shoot a projectile spell twice, but you take 25% more damage from projectiles.

Applies to every projectile individually (i.e. a triple multicast of a spell can fire between 3-6 projectiles)

All projectile modifiers apply, including cast and recharge delay, but not mana drain.

Triggers are sometimes ignored, with spells intended to be cast following a trigger or trigger-like effect (e.g. Delayed Spellcast) being cast from you directly.
Avoid picking up this perk if you are using dangerous spells that need to be cast at a distance.

Each additional stack will add one more projectile if the perk succeeded.

Perk faster wands.png
Faster Wands (One-off) All wands you're currently carrying gain a bonus to their cast delay & reload time. Yes Reduces the reload time and cast delay of all held wands by 20% + 5 frames (rounded towards zero), and increases their mana charge speed by 30.

When applied to the bomb wand may crate a powerful rapid fire wand in early games.

Caps at -0.35s for reload time and cast delay. Can exceed the 20000 mana charge speed limit from High Mana, Low Capacity.

Perk extra slots.png
Extra Wand Capacity (One-off) The wands you're currently carrying gain 1-3 additional spell slots (to a maximum of 25). Yes Adds 1-3 spell slots to every wand you're carrying, up to a max of 25.
Perk extra perk.png
Extra Perk From now on you will find an extra perk in every Holy Mountain. Yes

Max 5

Stacking creates additional perk slots. Note that if you previously visited another holy mountain, it will not gain another perk.

Synergizes well with Perk Lottery, and re-rolling perks.

Perk perks lottery.png
Perk Lottery When you pick a perk, there's a 50% chance the others won't disappear. Yes

Max 6

Can also trigger when Perk Lottery itself is first picked.

The effect can be stacked if multiple instances are picked up via perk re-rolling.

If the effect triggers, re-rolling perks will only re-roll the amount of perks remaining on the altar.

Perk extra shop item.png
Extra Item in Holy Mountain There will be an additional item in every Holy Mountain you haven't discovered yet. Yes

Max 5

Wand shops will contain one extra wand, and spell shops will contain two extra spells.
Perk genome more hatred.png
More Hatred Creatures become more aggressive towards each other. Yes Causes enemies not of the same group (e.g. Hurtta and Haulikkohiisi) to attack each other on sight.

With three stacks, enemies will attack each other regardless of affiliation.

This perk may result in unpredictable and chaotic behavior from groups of enemies as they constantly attack each other, often breaking flasks of potentially hazardous or otherwise valuable magical liquids in the process.

Synergizes with Gold is Forever, preventing gold being lost by off-screen deaths.

Can cause allies to turn on you.

Perk genome more love.png
More Love Creatures become more friendly to each other. Yes Reduces infighting, such as making most enemies passive to Rats.

Useful for reducing unfavorable situations that result from infighting, such as flasks getting broken, nukes being fired, etc.

With four stacks, enemies will always be friendly. Increases "Relation" by 25 per stack (see the More Love and Factions pages for more information).

Perk peace with gods.png
Peace with Gods You make peace with your Gods. No Applies a permanent charm effect to all Stevari (or Skoude) and also prevents the gods from being angered by defiling the Holy Mountain.

However, since you cannot anger the gods, you will not be able to summon Stevari in future Holy Mountains.

This means that aside from any that have already spawned before picking this perk up, the only Stevari you will encounter are from very rare natural spawns in certain areas, or created by The End of Everything.

This also means that you will not be able to use Stevari as a reliable source of gold.

Perk kills to mana.png
Kills to Mana Every time an enemy near you dies, you release mana-recharging liquid. No Does not actually produce any permanent liquid.

Instead, each enemy death provides you with a short duration buff that acts similarly to being stained by Concentrated Mana.

Multiple kills will provide separate instances of the buff, potentially stacking up to very high levels of mana regen for a short period. Synergizes well with rapid fire wands.

Perk laser aim.png
Pinpointer Your spells fly faster and have lower spread, and you have a handy sightline for aiming! Yes Your wands emit an orange laser sight, similar to that of a Snipuhiisi.

Reduces spread by 20 degrees and increases projectile speed by 40%.

This effect is applied per projectile, so casting multiple at once will have an increased effect.

May be used to cause Black Holes to cover extensive distances by multi-casting a Black Hole with other projectiles.

Perk personal laser.png
Personal Plasma Beam You constantly fire a devastating plasma beam, but you fire spells much slower Yes While holding a wand, you emit a constant stream of plasma, similar to a miniature version of the plasma beam emitters that are normally found in The Vault.

However, the perk increases the cast delay and recharge time of Projectile and Static Projectile spells by 5 frames each.
The beam deals 3.75 damage per frame (+0.625 per stack) to entities that it contacts, or 225 damage per second (+37.5 per stack).
The beam's length is 54 (+12 per stack) and its damage type is Projectile.

You will not emit a beam while holding an item. The beam can dig through materials with a durability of 11 or less.
This can be useful for getting rid of pools of dangerous liquids, namely Polymorphine, although the process can be rather tedious. The rate of destruction can be increased with more stacks.

The beam will easily break flasks and may set off explosives, so exercise caution. Some spells (such as Acid Ball and Bomb) may be detonated by the beam if it touches them.

Perk risky critical.png
Close Call You gain additional chance to deal critical hits as long as there are enemies near you. Yes

Max 3

Toxic Slime = within range
Large Bat = outside range

If there are any enemies within a very short range (radius=56), you get +40% critical chance applied to each shot.

So if you have a 4-cast wand and you shoot 4 spark bolts, each spark bolt gets +160% crit.
When enemies are within range, red particles will surround your body.

Perk contact damage.png
Contact Damage Enemies near you take damage; the damage is higher the lower your health gets. No The damage type of this perk is Melee.

Has an anti-synergy with More Love, as any creature you come into contact with will become hostile to you.

Perk cordyceps.png
Cordyceps Fungal creatures spawn from the corpses of enemies killed by you. No Fungal creatures explode on death, which can potentially damage a player without Explosion Immunity.

The description is somewhat misleading: the fungal creatures will spawn from all dead enemies, not just those you killed directly.
The Gold is Forever perk can be useful, since there will be a lot of fungus-related deaths around the map.

Kills from exploding fungal creatures count as trick kills, synergizing well with Trick Greed and Trick Blood Money.

Collecting all 3 of Cordyceps, Fungal Colony, and Fungal Disease will cause your sprite's head to turn into a mushroom and give 10% resistance to explosion damage.

Perk mystery eggplant.png
Eat Your Vegetables You inflict more damage the more satiated you are, but you start losing health if your stomach is empty. No Also spawns a potion of Hearty Porridge, which when consumed applies the healing buff effect for a percentage-based heal.

To increase satiation (without getting poisoned) you can consume: Blood, Worm Blood, Meat, Hearty Porridge, or Pea Soup.

Won't add damage to spells that heal, unlike other damage-increasing perks.
Synergizes with Iron Stomach and Stainless Armour.
Iron stomach also enables Slime and Slimy meat as feasible food sources, among other substances.

The bonus damage function is:

Once satiation drops below 25%, you will take about 0.7% of your max HP in curse damage every second, down to a minimum of 1 hp. Eat Your Vegetables also makes satiation reduce at a faster rate. Normally satiation reduces every 5 frames, with Eat Your Vegetables it becomes 3 frames. You lose 1% in 3.75 seconds instead of 6 seconds.

Perk mold.png
Fungal Colony Slime near you spontaneously turns into fungal creatures. No Also spawns a potion of Slime when obtained.

Collecting all 3 of Cordyceps, Fungal Colony, and Fungal Disease will cause your sprite's head to turn into a mushroom and give 10% resistance to explosion damage.

Perk fungal disease.png
Fungal Disease When near danger, you sprout fungal growths. Yes

Max 3

While within a short distance of an enemy, you emit bursts of spore pods at a rapid rate, similar to Prickly Spore Pod.

In some circumstances, these will grow into Blue or Weird Fungus after landing.

Collecting all 3 of Cordyceps, Fungal Colony, and Fungal Disease will cause your sprite's head to turn into a mushroom and give 10% resistance to explosion damage.
Has anti-synergy with any Permanent Shield perks or shielding spells, as it will rapidly break all layers of shield around you.

Perk gamble.png
Gamble (One-off) You gain two random perks. Yes Perks produced by Gamble are automatically given to you.

Since perks are completely tied to the seed, two random perks mean the same thing as the next two that would appear in the next Holy Mountain that hasn't been loaded in yet.

If Gamble would hit another Gamble, it skips it and gives the next perk instead.

If Gamble gives you Perk Lottery, the effect will not take place until the next perk is picked up.

Perk gas blood.png
Gas Blood You bleed flammable gas instead of blood. No Grants toxic immunity, and lowers your personal gravity a little bit.

Gas Blood is the only blood type perk that does not stain you, making it synergize very well with Stainless Armour.

Taking this will overwrite the material bled by you.
If taken after Slime Blood, the immunity to the slowing effect of slime will be retained.
The fire immunity of Oil Blood will also be retained.

Perk adventurer.png
Healthy Exploration Every time you visit a new area, you regain 60 health. No This includes areas previously visited before taking this perk.

Reloading the game may refresh the record.

Perk hungry ghost.png
Hungry Ghost Summons a happy minion who'll eat enemy projectile every now and then. Yes

Max 5

Gives the "Damage Boost" buff for 4 seconds when a projectile is eaten.

Collecting all 3 of Angry Ghost, Hungry Ghost, and Mournful Spirit will give you a ghost companion and increase the levitation time by 15%.

See also: Guide to infinite damage.

Perk radar item.png
Item Radar You can sense nearby items. No Sense Health Pickups, Spell Refresher, Potions and Items.
Perk lukki minion.png
Lukki Minion Summons a lukki minion to your help. No Summons a purple small lukki that follows you around.

When on top of an enemy, the foe will take 30 melee damage per second in bursts of 5 damage every 1/6th of a second.

By taking the perks Lukki Mutation (or Leggy Mutation) twice, along with Lukki Minion, you will trigger the Lukki Transformation. In this state you have a slightly new look, and move 10% faster.

Perk death ghost.png
Mournful Spirit Dying creatures leave behind a spirit that deals damage in a small area. No, but not removed from the pool It wanders around randomly, dealing curse damage to enemies that come into contact with it.

While it is incapable of harming you on its own, the enemies it kills still can.

Collecting all 3 of Angry Ghost, Hungry Ghost, and Mournful Spirit will give you a ghost companion and increase the levitation time by 15%.

Perk angry levitation.png
Rage-fueled Levitation Killing an enemy makes you replenish some of your levitation power. No Increases levitation power whenever any creature within a large radius of you dies, including ones you haven't directly killed. Gives a flat amount of levitation power.
Perk revenge rats.png
Revenge Rats When you take damage, there's a chance that a helpful rat minion is summoned. No Collecting all 3 of Plague Rats, Revenge Rats, and Spontaneous Generation will cause your sprite to grow a rat tail.

A rat tail increases movement speed by 15%.

Perk vomit rats.png
Spontaneous Generation Vomit near you evolves into helpful rat minions No Also spawns a potion of Vomit when obtained.

Collecting all 3 of Plague Rats, Revenge Rats, and Spontaneous Generation will cause your sprite to grow a rat tail. A rat tail increases movement speed by 15%.

Perk mega beam stone.png
Summon Sädekivi (One-off) You gain an artefact that allows you to call the celestial rage. Yes Spawns a Sädekivi
Perk iron stomach.png
Iron Stomach You no longer suffer from negative effects of eating. No You can eat materials without damage (e.g. lava and poison), and increase satiation without exploding.

Synergizes with Eat Your Vegetables. Has some anti-synergy with Spontaneous Generation as you won't be able to produce vomit anymore.

Berserkium will no longer function as it is considered a negative effect for the fact that it angers enemies.

With enough water and Concentrated Mana you can maintain the effect for almost forever.

Drinking any type of liquid that applies an effect (Poison, Flummoxium, Polymorphine, etc.) will make you temporarily invulnerable to that specific effect for a few seconds.

Special Perks

These perks are special in that they cannot be found in Holy Mountains and must be obtained via other means.

Icon Name Message Stacks Notes
Perk leggy feet.png
Leggy Mutation You grow disturbing looking limbs that fight for you. Yes Dropped by Leggy Mimics (Matkija)

Almost the same effects as Lukki Mutation, but featuring human-like legs instead of spider legs. Does not hold you in place, instead requires you to constantly levitate.

By taking the perks Lukki Mutation (or Leggy Mutation) twice, along with Lukki Minion, you will trigger the Lukki Transformation. In this state you have a slightly new look, and move 10% faster.

Curse of Greed! You gain 3x gold, but are terribly cursed! Yes You gain more gold, but a curse will haunt you.

Received by picking up the Eternal Wealth in the shrine next to the first branch of the Giant Tree. Triples the amount of gold that is dropped from enemies, but periodically turns most solids or liquids around you into Greed-Cursed Rock and Greed-Cursed Liquid respectively, which damage you on contact. The curse will follow the path you have taken, rather than activating at your location every time. This means you can outrun it, but much of the world will still be converted.

Slime does not become Greed-Cursed Liquid, therefore pools of slime are safe.

Replaces the Chaos Die with the Greed Die and the Shiny Orb with the Cruel Orb in unvisited areas.

Changes the spawn rate for Great Treasure Chests from 1/1000 to 1/50, but only for guaranteed chest spawn locations in the Mines.

Spawns a Greed-Cursed Crystal inside the Holy Mountain which, when broken, removes the curse completely. Holy Mountains visited prior to acquiring the perk will not spawn them. Materials that have already been cursed will not revert to their original state.

Has some synergy with Lukki Mutation / Leggy Mutation as the unlimited flight means you may come into contact with Greed-Cursed substances less often.

Perk map.png
Spatial Awareness If you stop for a moment, you can sense your location relative to the Mountain. No If you stand still for about 2 seconds, a white map will appear.

Red dot Your current location.
Triangle The Mountain (with a number above if the user is in a PW).
7 larger circles The 6 Holy Mountains + Laboratory.
Smaller circles The Essences, the Huilu, the Coral & Dark chests.
Square The Nullifying Altar.
Green dot Marks the location of the Friends' room.

This perk is dropped by Kolmisilmän silmä.

See also:

Perk moon radar.png
Moon Radar You can sense lunar energy. No A single white circle will appear around you, which will always face towards the Moon.

This perk only appears inside the ??? east of the Overgrown Cavern.


Retired Perks

These perks are no longer in the game, however most of their effects can be replicated via modding or file editing. Some of their effects, however, still exist in the form of newer/updated perks

Icon Name Message Stacks Notes
Perk low gravity.png
Low Gravity All creatures, you included, have lower personal gravity. Yes (Currently removed from the game)

Causes all creatures including you to be less affected by gravity Reduces your gravity by 40%, making it far easier to remain airborne, and reduces your falling speed.

Able to reproduce effect via editing pixel_gravity under CharacterPlatformingComponent in player.xml

Perk high gravity.png
High Gravity All creatures, you included, have higher personal gravity. Yes (Currently removed from the game)

Increases your gravity by 40%, making it harder to remain airborne and increasing falling speed.
This also increases the speed liquids fall off of you while moving.

Able to reproduce effect via editing pixel_gravity under CharacterPlatformingComponent in player.xml

Perk worm detractor.png
Worm Detractor Worms of the world run from you. No (Currently removed from the game)

Opposite of Worm Attractor, causing worms to instead be repelled by you, and dig away.

This has since been combined with Feared by Worms.

Perk extra potion capacity.png
Extra Potion Capacity Potions can contain 80% more liquid, and potions you find will have that much to start with. Yes

Max 3

(Currently removed from the game)

Able to reproduce effect on flasks currently in player's inventory via changing MaterialSuckerComponent in player.xml

Fast Swimming
Fast Swimming You are an expert swimmer! No (Currently removed from the game)

Makes you move significantly faster while submerged in liquids

Player no longer floats in liquids, but instead falls at a rapid pace

This has since been combined into Breathless


Main article: Essences

The Essences are special perks that are not in the normal perk rotation, and instead only spawn in specific locations on the map. Seeking and handling Essences can be quite dangerous. They are also the only perks unable to be removed by the Nullifying Altar

Nullifying Altar

Main article: Nullifying Altar

The Nullifying Altar is a secret room where you can remove your perks, it is also the only known way to remove perks without modding or file editing.

Perk Deck

Each seed generates its own listing of perks which varies a little in size, which determines which order the perks will appear in within each Holy Mountain, and during rerolls. Common sizes for the perk deck range from the minimum of 103 (every perk available from a Holy Mountain being present exactly once) up to around 116. Theoretical maximum for perk deck length is 155, but with only 4 billion possible seeds in Noita, it's unlikely there is a seed that gets close to that number.

When generating the initial list of perks, every possible perk in the normal list is added to the deck somewhere between once and its Pool Max value (max_in_perk_pool in the perk scripts), decided randomly. Non-stackable perks and those with stackable_is_rare set are always only added once, even if they have a different max_in_perk_pool value, giving them an effective Pool Max value of 1 also.

Then the deck is further adjusted to remove duplicate perks that occur too close together in the deck. By default the minimum distance between duplicate perks is 4, though some perks have specific distances set.

Additionally, perks that are collected will modify the list accordingly; collecting non-stackable perks will immediately remove them from the deck, and collecting a perk with a Max Stack value (stackable_maximum in the perk scripts) at least that many times will also remove it from the deck from that point on.


  • A reroll station can be brought to any location where there are perks (using Giga Black Holes or a similar method) and used to reroll perks.
  • A reroll machine can be brought to the Nullifying Altar and used to reroll your perks. However, after doing so, the rerolled perks will be treated as if they're in the Holy Mountain and all other perks that have been rerolled within a certain radius will disappear after use, this can be prevented with enough Perk Lottery (this effect also extends to Special Perks, however they rarely spawn near other perks, so this would likely go unnoticed if attempted).

Tier lists

Sometimes people enjoy creating Tier lists. There is a complete list for all 106 normal perks in the final game at

Lists often differ based on experience levels or intended audience (newcomers vs pros), or playstyle (speedrunners vs winstreakers vs long-runners).

Some examples from regular Twitch streamers include: Aliasbot, Daa130 (winstreak oriented), DarkViperAU, Dadwrestler, DunkOrSlam

Search YouTube for more, plus details on their perspectives and reasoning.
