Julie is a master of stealth, capable of slipping past the Family completely unnoticed. Her heightened stealth gives her the ability to quickly end interactions without setting off noise, obtaining tools and bone shards at incredible speeds. Julie can also evade detection from Johnny and the Cook with her unique ability: Ultimate Escape.
Julie has the highest Stealth of any Victim, allowing her to complete actions quickly and quietly. With Julie, you can quickly obtain tools necessary for escape and lead your allies to freedom.
Endurance is Julie's second-highest stat, letting her disappear into the shadows once more if her Stealth ever fails her. Thanks to physical conditioning from her sporty lifestyle, Julie can make a quick getaway if Family members catch her rummaging for tools or unlocking exits.
Julie's unique ability, Ultimate Escape, compliments both her Stealth and Endurance. While active, this ability reduces stamina costs and prevents Julie from being tracked by The Cook and Johnny.
Julie's lowest stats are her Strength and Proficiency. Julie's low Strength means she won't be able to overpower Family members if she gets into a close encounter, so running is always her best option.
Her lower Proficiency means she will take a bit to complete technical tasks like lock picking and battery disabling.
While Julie may have a lower Proficiency stat, her Proficiency shouldn't dissuade you from engaging in technical tasks. It may take longer to complete certain tasks, but Julie's high stealth ensures a loud noise is less likely to occur.
Once you're free from your restraints, search for tools to open the basement exit. Julie's high Stealth allows you to quickly acquire tools and get that basement exit open. Obtain two tools, so you'll have another one ready for whatever map exit you go for.
After reaching the surface, search for either the Rear Exit or Pressure Valve exit. Take advantage of your ability to quickly gather items and aim to unlock exits or doors that prevent you from reaching other parts of the map.
Use Ultimate Escape whenever fleeing from multiple Family members. This ability is too valuable to only use it for evading the Cook and Johnny's detection skills. Boost Julie's Endurance to make escape possible in any situation.
Always run from Family members no matter what. Julie lacks the Strength necessary to win fights or to stun the Family for long.
Julie's skill tree is full of perks that further enhance her Endurance. With the right perks equipped, Julie can run circles around Family members before losing her stamina.
Alternatively, some of her stealth perks help with stamina recovery. Using multiple stamina recovery perks in conjunction with Endurance perks guarantees that running is always an option.
Here are strong perks to use in her build:
Completely replenishes stamina once it runs out.
Use with Ultimate Escape to further extend your stamina usage. Be alert that this perk has several charges and deactivates after running out.
Boosts your speed for a few seconds after moving through gaps or crawl spaces.
Since this perk has no cooldown, you can chain together crawl spaces to get several speed boosts. This perk lets you create distance quickly without burning stamina.
Takes less time to recover stamina once it runs out.
If your stamina runs out during a chase, this perk allows you to get running again in no time. This is a great precautionary measure if you run out of Choose Flight charges.
The Proficiency provided by this perk increases every time the perk is leveled up. This helps balance out Julie's lower proficiency, which is necessary since you'll frequently use tools.
Recover stamina faster while using hiding spots or hiding in the shadows.
Works amazingly with Conditioned, allowing Julie to recover stamina at record speeds.
