The Expert Generalist achievement requires you to escape a trial after repairing at least one generator while using only two general perks. You must do this eight times. 

General perks are any perks that are not teachable perks, which are unique to characters; for example, Lightweight is a general perk, while Dwight Fairfield's Bond is not.

Since you can only have two perks in your loadout while you attempt this challenge, it's important to think about combinations of general perks that may work well together.

  • Self-Aware and Lightweight - Pairing these two perks will not only make your scratch marks harder for the killer to see, but they'll allow you to keep track of your own scratch marks. Using these two together can help you strategically evade the killer.
  • Spine Chill and Premonition - Spine Chill and Premonition work well together if you're keen on knowing where the killer is. Both perks will alert you of the killer's direction at critical times, giving you ample time to hide or gain distance.
  • Kindred and We'll Make It - Use Kindred to determine where other survivors and the killer are during a hook instance, allowing you to make the save when appropriate. We'll Make It will help you quickly heal the survivor you've just unhooked.
  • No One Left Behind and We'll Make It - We'll Make It will provide you with healing boosts throughout the match, while No One Left Behind will allow you to pull through in the end-game. With these two perks combined, you can pull off a mini end-game build and help survivors escape when it matters most.

Of course, you'll need to actually escape the trial in order to gain progress toward the achievement. So whichever two perks you decide to equip, make sure you use them wisely.
