Description[ | ]

Severely Dehydrated is a debuff that is acquired when a character's Hydration falls below 2%. This reduces maximum stamina and will slowly drain the characters health. If left untreated, Severely Dehydrated is fatal.

Cure[ | ]

Consuming any Food that raises Hydration above 2%. Drinks are especially good for this though a number of the stews also raise Hydration by a decent amount.

If Hydration is raised above 2%, but is still less than 25%, you will still be Dehydrated.

If Hydration is raised above 25%, but is still less than 50%, you will still be Thirsty.

Dehydration Damage[ | ]

Severely Dehydrated does .0917 damage every 2.2 seconds and cannot be reduced. This results in 1 point of health lost every 24 seconds. If no other damage is taken it will take a while to die of thirst when at full health. Players should seek water as soon as possible.
