Description[ | ]

Starving is the progression of the Hungry and Very Hungry debuffs. It is acquired when a player has let their character's Fullness level fall below 2%. This is displayed as a flashing, red, small knife and fork icon just above the main player statistic bars at the bottom left of the screen. Starving will reduce a player's stamina and damage them slowly over time, eventually causing death.

Cure[ | ]

It is possible to cure this status effect by eating any item of food in order to increase Fullness (Food) above 30% of Max Stamina Cap.

Starvation Damage[ | ]

Starvation does 0.055 damage every 2.2 seconds and cannot be reduced. This results in 1 point of health lost every 40 seconds. If no other damage is taken it will take a while to starve when at full health. Players should still seek food as soon as possible.
