From EQ2i, the EverQuest II wiki

Health is the character attribute used to soak up damage from melee and magical attacks. The more Health you have, the hardier you are, and (all else being equal) the more likely you are to survive combat. The Health pool is represented by an orange bar below the name of your character in the default user interface.

Health is regained over time. Food increases the regeneration rate of the Health pool, but only out of combat. Various items, spells and Dirge songs can also increase the regeneration rate, even within combat. Healing spells can add large amounts of Health to the Health pool instantly.

From Final Fantasy Wiki

Pray in Final Fantasy IV

Pray, also known as Health and Prayer, is a recurring ability in the Final Fantasy series that heals the whole party.



Final Fantasy IV

In all versions of the game except the SNES one (in which many character abilities were removed), Rosa can use Pray (Prayer in the J2e translation). If successful, it heals the party equivalent to a Cure spell. In the Advance version it is upgradeable to Miracle with the accessory White Ring. Miracle has a chance of healing more as well as curing statuses, though its failure is essentially the original Pray. In the Nintendo DS version, Pray restores both HP and MP, the amount of which is dependent on the party member's max HP and MP, and has a higher rate of success.

Final Fantasy VI

Banon has the Pray command, which was called Health in the SNES and PSX versions. It casts the equivalent of a Cura spell on the party for no MP cost.

Final Fantasy X

Pray is found in Yuna's section of the Sphere Grid. It restores a small amount of HP to the Party.

Final Fantasy X-2

Pray is found in the White Mage Dressphere. Vigor is a stronger single-target version of Pray.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010

From GuildWiki

Health, represented by the red bar in the user interface, represents the character's vitality (often called "hit points"). When a character's health reaches zero, the character dies.


Maximum health

All level one characters start with 100 health. Every level a character earns increases their maximum health by 20. This brings maximum health to 480 at level of 20. In addition, some skills, weapon upgrades, focuses, shields, Morale Boosts, death penalty, armor, consumables, and runes can affect a player's maximum health.

The maximum health that a level 20 character can achieve without skills or titles is 670, however Dervish primaries can attain 695 (due to an inherent +25 health on their chest armor).

480 (base hp) + 50 (Rune of Superior Vigor) + 40 (4X Rune of Vitae) + 40 (5X Survivor Insignia) + 30 (shield or focus) + 30 (Main Weapon) = 670

Any temporary effects on maximum health also modify current health by the same amount, albeit also temporarily. For example, if a creature with 300 of 500 health has its maximum health reduced by 100, it would then have 200 of 400 health. When the effect expires, the creature would be restored to 300 of 500 health. Reduction of maximum health cannot, however, reduce a creature to below 1 current health.


Healing a character causes that player to gain health points, up to their full health. The healing player and healed player see blue numbers showing the amount healed. Blue numbers are shown even when no HP is actually gained (usually because the character is at full health). The size of the blue numbers may be modified through options.

Health gain, health regeneration, and healing

There are three distinct types of health replentishment- health regeneration, healing, and gain health. Healing skills are affected by healing reduction skills while gain health skills give you the stated amount. Health regeneration provides health over time determined by the number of "pips" a character has.

Health regeneration/degeneration

The rate at which health regenerates (or degenerates) is represented by pips, or arrows, that appear in the health bar. Each pip indicates 2 points per second of health recovery (arrows pointing to the right) or loss (arrows pointing to the left). Health degeneration usually affects the color of a character's health bar. A pale pink health bar indicates bleeding, while a green bar indicates disease, poison or health degeneration from an environmental effect and a purple bar indicates degeneration from a hex or well. Degeneration from burning and miasma does not affect the color of the health bar.

It should be noted that skills that incur health degeneration ignore armor, and thus is useful against heavily-armored foes, or foes which use armor-increasing skills (such as Armor of Earth).

Health regeneration will stack to exceed ±10 pips, but the effect will be no greater than that of ±10 pips. For instance, if a target has -20 health regeneration they will lose health at the rate of -10 pips, and if they use a +10 Healing Breeze, they will still lose health at the rate of -10 pips.

Natural health regeneration

If a character is not at full health, isn't attacking, isn't using a skill that targets foe, isn't being targeted by a non-party member's spell and hasn't lost health recently (from damage, sacrifice, or health degeneration), then the character will slowly start gaining health regeneration as a form of natural healing. Natural health regeneration stops when any one of the above conditions ceases to be true. It is possible to regain health this way while you're under attack as long as the damage you receive is 0 and any degeneration is offset by regeneration.

After 5 seconds you get a health regeneration of 1
After 7 seconds you get a health regeneration of 2
After 9 seconds you get a health regeneration of 3
After 11 seconds you get a health regeneration of 4
After 13 seconds you get a health regeneration of 5
After 15 seconds you get a health regeneration of 6
After 17 seconds you get a health regeneration of 7


  • With the Masters of Corruption or Drink from the Chalice of Corruption quests it is possible to have health degeneration and health regeneration while in a town or outpost, however, the effect will not actually decrease your health.
  • At some outposts in the Maguuma Jungle, there are bodies of water and standing in them will trigger the Fount Of Maguuma effect, giving you +1 regeneration.
  • Some monsters in Pre-Searing Ascalon have health that is below what it should be according to the formula.
Health Monster Level
5 Aloe Seed 0
35 River Skale Tad 0
50 Aloe Husk 0
70 River Skale 1
80 Gargoyle 1
80 Stone Elemental 1
80 Restless Corpse 1
120 Tomb Nightmare 4

From Grand Theft Wiki

Health is the measurement of the physical condition of the game's protagonist in the Grand Theft Auto series. Its default maximum is 100%, but in some of the games in the series this can be extended, usually as a reward for completing some side mission.

Health pickups scattered around the map can restore the player's health to the maximum level. Since the first GTA until Grand Theft Auto IV, health pickups are generally shaped as rotating health icon with the symbol of a heart. In GTA IV, health pickups are shaped as medical kits. Health can be also replenished by up to 20% when entering Ambulances.

Many things can damage the player's health: being shot, stabbed, or beaten, fire, explosives, being struck by a vehicle, drowning, being thrown from a vehicle, and falling from heights. When the player's health is completely depleted, the protagonist is considered "wasted", and is then transported to the nearest hospital, after which a fee for healthcare will be assessed, and all weapons confiscated. Any mission that may have been in progress at the time is considered as failed. Health can be replenished by picking up a health pickup, employing the services of a prostitute, or - in GTA San Andreas and GTA IV - by eating food or visiting a Save Point to save the game.


Grand Theft Auto III

Health pickups can be found in front of all hospitals and scattered throughout Liberty City, often in recreational areas such as rest stops, parks, and shopping centers. Employing the services of a prostitute also replenishes health to a possible total of 125%.

Grand Theft Auto: Vice City

Health pickups appear in Vice City primarily in front of hospitals and replenish the player's health to maximum for $100 (default 100%, which can be extended to 200%). Food stores only help you replenish up to 100% health. The player's maximum health can be increased to 150% by performing Pizza Boy side missions. The player's maximum health will be 200% after the 100% Completion.

GTA San Andreas

Health pickups appear in San Andreas during Gang Warfare and in most missions involving a lot of gun fights. Health is replenished to maximum, which is a variable scale that can be increased by performing paramedic side missions and exercising (sprinting, swimming, or visiting a gym).

GTA Liberty City Stories

Health pickups like in the previous games appear randomly around the city and always inside safehouses and by hospitals. Maximum health can be increased by finishing the Pizza Boy and Noodle Boy side-missions, with each of them increasing 25% health, when completed.

GTA Vice City Stories

Health pickups here appear in the same form as in Liberty City Stories and are always inside safehouses and by hospitals. Increasing the maximum health requires completing the odd job, Air Rescue.


The map found on a website showing health locations in GTA IV.

Health packs are found all over Liberty City, generally in out-of-the-way locales, and in subway stations. Food stands and stores are dotted around the city, and are great for replenishing health. A map of health pickups is shown in the game's website

From Halopedia, the Halo Wiki

(70 votes)
The health and shield indicator in Halo: Combat Evolved. The large, single, blue bar on the top is the shield level.

Health in the Halo games is the player-character's physical well-being. In the games, a player's health is measured and displayed on the HUD. If a player's health runs out, their character dies; however, lowered health does not affect a player-character's stamina, movement speed, or other physical attributes.


In Halo: Combat Evolved

Players in Halo: Combat Evolved have a limited, non-regenerating supply of health. Health can only be restored by picking up health packs. Health is shown on the HUD using a horizontal bar broken into ten segments. A player's health can only be reduced if their shields have failed.

In addition to being broken into segments, the health bar changes color to represent the approximate amount of health a player has left. The bar turns yellow when half or more of a player's health has been depleted; when this happens, the player should probably consider obtaining a health pack soon, though the need is not urgent. When only two segments remain on the bar, it will turn red, indicating that the player should find a health pack as soon as possible, and should avoid dangerous situations until then. When only one segment remains, the sound of a beating heart can be heard.

The health bar

In Halo 2

Contrary to popular belief, there is a small amount of health in Halo 2, though it is not explicitly shown on the HUD. Health recharges with a player's shields; this is canonically explained by the presence of biofoam injectors in the MJOLNIR armor that the Master Chief uses in this game. The shield bar appears to change color slightly to reflect the player's health.

In Halo 3

The health system in Halo 3 is a bit more complicated. Bungie has stated[1] that players have 115 hit points: 45 health points and 70 shield points. When a player's shields fail, their health becomes vulnerable. If the player avoids taking damage for ten seconds, their health will slowly regenerate at a rate of 9 points per second, taking about 7.75 seconds to recharge from the brink of death. Health and shields are independent; a player's shields can regenerate without their health following suit, so full shields do not necessarily mean that a player is safe from death.

In Halo 3: ODST

In Halo 3: ODST, players once again have a health bar that is shown on the HUD[2]. A player's health in ODST can only be damaged after their stamina is depleted. Because players play as ODSTs (who are weaker than armored Spartans), health in this game is depleted much faster than in previous games of the series. As in Halo: Combat Evolved, health can only be restored using health packs.

Health Packs

A single health pack will fully restore the player's health, but does not regenerate shields. Health packs are only featured in Halo: Combat Evolved, and Halo 3: ODST.

Fall Damage

In the campaigns of each game, players can take damage if they fall from too great a height. Such fall damage can kill players who fall from great heights. Fall damage is not present in Halo 3's multiplayer, however, though falling deaths can still result from contact with a kill barrier.

(Redirected to Hitpoints article)

From the RuneScape Wiki, the wiki for all things RuneScape



Hitpoints (also known as HP or health) is a skill representing the amount of damage a player or monster can withstand until he/she dies. This is known as death, which happens when their hitpoints reaches zero.

The current minimum requirement to be ranked (at rank 2,000,000) on the hiscores for Hitpoints is level 62.

Players begin with a hitpoints level of 10, with 1,154 experience.

The number of hitpoints a monster has varies between 1 and 2,000. The Corporeal beast, the highest level monster in RuneScape, tops this list, followed by Nomad, Turkey (2009 Thanksgiving event), Decaying Avatar, Living rock patriarch, Tormented Demon, Living rock striker, Kree'arra, Commander Zilyana, General Graardor, K'ril Tsutsaroth, and the Kalphite Queen (although the Kalphite Queen has two forms, each of which has 255 hitpoints, effectively giving her 510 total hitpoints).

The highest amount of hitpoints of a monster in a minigame is 1,000, the avatars of Soul Wars. TzTok-Jad is second at 250 hitpoints.

The highest amount of hitpoints for a familiar is the Steel Titan with 750 hitpoints.

The title of monster with the least amount of hitpoints is a tie among the Carnivorous chinchompa, the Chinchompa, evil creatures, and Miscellanian citizens and guards, all with 1 health each. This effectively means that any successful attack will kill them in one hit.

Hitpoints bars appear above players' and attackable NPCs' heads when in combat.
99 Hit
Some players coming to RuneScape 2 from RuneScape Classic had only 9 hitpoints instead of 10.

While fighting, both the opponent and the player will have a bar on top of them. This bar represents their HP.

There are two colours on the bar: green and red. The green part of the bar is on the left, and represents how much HP the player has remaining. The red part of the bar appears on the right, and represents how much damage has been taken away from their maximum HP. This allows easy estimation of how much health the player has left compared with how much they have lost.

Current HP can be seen in the circle just beneath the compass, and is labeled by a heart.

If a player has only 5 HP left, assuming that they have 30+ maximum HP, then the bar on top of them would be mostly red, meaning they are near death. However, due to an update (most likely a hidden update of an unknown date), the health bar above your head will no longer change shades. This may be due to complaints on the forums.

Now, players can just look over to the top-right of their RuneScape screen and check how many hitpoints they currently have remaining and can be alerted when their hitpoints drop to 25% or lower; during then, the Heart Icon will start to pulse. And due to a recent hidden update, players are now further warned that their hitpoints are getting low (25% of total HP) through the addition of a beating heart sound effect which accompanies the pulsing animation until health is restored above 25%. (Note that this is a very common device in video games, almost always used to show that the player is near death or that another similarly dramatic event is occurring.)

Poison (Members only)

Main article: Poison

A player may become poisoned during a fight. This effect will continue to reduce hitpoints periodically, even after the fight is over, though the body's natural defences will gradually neutralize the poison.

For instance, if a player is hit by another player wielding a poisoned dagger, they would be hit for 4 damage every minute (four times), then 3 damage every minute (four times), then 2 damage every minute (four times), then 1 damage every minute (four times), then the poison would be gone.

Players can cure the poison early with an anti-poison potion that members can make with the Herblore skill.

Please note that if you are poisoned in a Member's server, but then switch to a Free server you will remain poisoned with no way to cure it until you switch back to a Member's server.

Also note that damage caused by poison gives no experience to any skill.


A player dying and their Gravestone appearing
Main article: Death

If a player is in Pest Control, in a player-owned house, duelling another player at the Duel Arena, or playing any other safe minigame, they will not lose any items on death, and will respawn in a designated location with all items retained.

A ring of life can also teleport the player safely back to the chosen respawn point automatically upon reaching 10% or below their maximum HP. There are three exceptions, either the player was hit for more than 10%, they are beyond level 30 in the deep wilderness or they are in a safe mini-game with no danger of losing one's items. A ring of life can only be used one time before disintegrating.

In addition, if a player has used the Abyss for runecrafting, they are given a skull that appears over their head. If a player dies of any circumstances while being "skulled" they lose ALL of their items carried at the time, rather than the usual keeping three. However, if a skulled player dies while the "Protect Item" Prayer is on, they keep ONE item (one more than the usual, which is zero if the player is skulled). If a player does not enter the Abyss within twenty minutes of receiving the skull, the skull vanishes.


When a player dies, they will respawn, meaning they will live again. The player will keep 3 of his/her items (if not skulled).

Earning experience

To earn experience in hitpoints, a player has to fight or do a quest that rewards hitpoints experience. Alternatively, one could use an item that gives a specific amount of experience. (ex: genie lamp)

When fighting, whether it be by melee, ranging, or magic, as long as they deal damage, a player will always earn hitpoints experience. There is a formula which is used to determine how much hitpoints xp a player will receive. The sole exception is by using a Dwarf Multicannon, which gives half the range experience and no hitpoints experience.

When a player deals damage to an opponent, they receive some hitpoints experience. If a player hits the opponent, whatever damage they deal is multiplied by 1.33 and given to the player's hitpoints. This is one of the slowest skills to gain levels on, with experience being earned at one third the rate of Attack, Ranged, Strength or Defence.

The quickest way to earn hitpoints experience is the Soul Wars Minigame. Amazingly, a player named
The messege a player receives after obtaining 99 Hitpoints
 Heart Emote has achieved 99 hitpoints at a low combat of 25, thus being the lowest level possible with a Hitpoints cape.

Recovering HP

A player casting the Heal Group spell.

A player can heal to restore their HP back to its maximum. There are a number of ways to do this:

  • Let it recharge on its own. A player will naturally heal one hitpoint about every minute. However, this is very slow, although the prayer 'Rapid Heal' doubles hitpoint recovery rate to one every 30 seconds. This is not recommended unless you have no food, are next to an altar, or don't want to get killed by whatever monster, PKer or NPC happens to be there. Also, a lunar spell, Dream, will make hitpoints recover five times as fast as normal. Additionally, a Regen bracelet will double recovery.
  • Eat lots of food. Players can eat food to heal their hitpoints, the best foods are more expensive but providing more healing per item. This is the most common way players heal themselves. Members have a much wider variety of foods to eat which can heal many more hitpoints at one time.
Food Heals HP GE price Consumption bites
Monkfish 16 455 One
Curry 19 1,239 One
Shark 20 1,539 One
Wild pie 22 2,874 Two
Summer pie 22 1,452 Two
Pineapple pizza 22 1,858 Two
Tuna potato 22 2,094 One
Manta Ray 22 3,101 One
Rocktail 23 2,485 One
Basket of strawberries up to 30 259 Five
  • Players can sit down, giving 2x the normal rate of recharging, or players can listen to a Musician, which gives 3x the rate. (The game mechanics treat this as a separate heal clock: i.e. the player heals one point every 60 seconds normally plus one additional point for every 60 seconds seated - or two per minute while seated if listening to a musician. Note that when sitting down and using 'Rapid Heal,' the prayer will affect only the normal-heal clock, not the seated-heal clock: thus the player will recover 1 point every 30 seconds while under 'Rapid Heal' plus one additional point for every 60 seconds seated, resulting in a 3 points per minute recovery rate.)
  • The monks at the Monastery and Entrana will heal players if they ask them. They heal 20% of the player's hitpoints level.
  • The nurses Sabreen and A'abla and Surgeon Tafani at the infirmary north of Al-Kharid Duel Arena will heal players if asked.
  • Two lunar spells can be cast to heal a player or a group of players: Heal Other, level 92 magic needed, and Heal Group, level 95 magic needed.
  • Die. When a player dies, they respawn at full health and full energy. This is not recommended unless the player has banked all items and wants to go to an area near their respawn point.
  • A player can use a bracelet of regeneration which doubles hit point recovery rate. When used in conjunction with the prayer rapid heal, it quadruples to two hitpoints every thirty seconds.
  • The two Summoning familiars, the Void spinner and the Bunyip, will heal a player over time, for 1 hitpoint per 15 seconds and 2 hitpoints per 15 seconds, respectively. The Unicorn stallion will heal 15% of the player's hitpoints by using its special move, Healing Aura.
Familiar Summoning level required Heal rate
Void Spinner 34 1 hitpoint every 15 seconds
Bunyip 68 2 hitpoints every 15 seconds
Unicorn Stallion 88 15% of Summoner's hitpoints (special attack)

Temporary boosts

A player wearing a Hitpoints cape (t) and performing the Skillcape emote.
  • Saradomin brew - Made using the herblore skill. Drinking this brew raises defence by 20% and hitpoints by 15%+2 even above maximum, though all other combat skills decrease by 10% excluding defence.
  • Titan's Constitution - The respective scroll of the Fire titan, Moss titan and Ice titan which will raise a player's max HP by 8 and defence by 13% temporarily.
  • Elidinis Statuette - this altar in Nardah will heal you and raise your total HP by 8, and will also refill your prayer. Players need to have completed Spirits of the Elid.
  • Skill Cape of Hitpoints - Owners of a Hitpoint Cape can boost their hitpoints by 1 every minute, by operating the cape or re-equipping it. The cape is one of the Capes of Achievement, and can be bought and equipped by players with 99 hitpoints only.
  • Guthix rest - Guthix rest, if drunk when at full hitpoints, will boost your maximum hitpoints by 5.
  • Oo'glog - by resting in the Thermal bath your HP will be raised dramatically, by 20% over your maximum Hitpoints level.
  • Temple Trekking / Burgh de Rott - One particular event in the treks Abidor Crank, temporarily increases your max HP according to its max level / current stance, as well as increasing defence in the same way, and turning all rotten food in your inventory into Curry or Stew.
  • Rocktail - Can heal up to 10 over the player's maximum hp when eaten.


  • After a hidden update from Jagex on December 2008, falling to 1/4 of maximum HP or lower will result in a heart-beat-like sound.
  • When RuneScape 2 (as it was then known) was released, the experience required for level 10 in any skill was slightly raised. This meant that characters with no extra Hitpoints experience had a Hitpoints level of 9. However, the combat level of those players is still 3.
The old HP bar.
  • A player concentrating on just 1 melee skill (attack, strength or defence), you have to inflict 3,258,608 hitpoint of damage to get from level 1 to 99. This would also result in level 87 hitpoints. For level 99 in all melee skills, a player needs to inflict 9,775,823 hitpoints of damage.
  • On the 27th of May 2009, the Hitpoints bar and damage splats were graphically updated.Before this update, the hitpoints bar was simply a bar that had only green and red colour.After this update, an outline was added and the colours had more detail, plus NPCs with many hitpoints, such as Nomad with 1,000 hitpoints, will have a much longer bar to show how many hitpoints have been lost to much more accuracy.
  • If you get poisoned on a members' world, you will stay poisoned if you log onto a free-to-play world. The same applies if you are diseased.
  • As of the 20th of October 2009, the hitpoints bar will no longer become completely red unless the monster or player has zero hitpoints.

Bao-Dur using Force Healing.
"Must relax... reach out with my mind... reach inside... through the pain... to touch the Force! Knit bones... mend flesh... renew!"

Force healing, Force heal, or Cure was a power that used the Force to accelerate the natural healing process rapidly.



Initial levels required meditation, but greater aptitude usually granted faster regeneration, without need of meditation. Greater levels of attainment were also able to mend far more severe injuries, even complete damage to flesh and bone, even going as far as to mend internal damage, such as damage to the heart, lungs and so forth. This was shown in a more perverse form by Darth Vader, but utilized by the most skilled of Jedi. It was unlikely, however, that this power was able to regenerate lost matter, as neither Luke Skywalker nor Darth Vader utilized the ability to replace their severed limbs.

Jedi Healer, Cilghal.

Jedi Healers used this power to diagnose and treat the ailments of their patients. A notable case of this use of Force healing was Cilghal using the Force to cure Mon Mothma of a molecular poison that was incurable by conventional means, although strictly speaking the method of healing involved Cilghal's Force-powered detection and removal of the nanomachines afflicting Mon Mothma rather than a direct application of Force energy against the damaged cells themselves.

Obi-Wan Kenobi used a basic form of this ability on Luke Skywalker after his confrontation with the Tusken Raiders on Tatooine in 0 BBY.

Ki-Adi-Mundi has used this Force power to heal a broken collar bone almost completely by meditation after the ambush of Jabba Desilijic Tiure's minions, during his mission to find Sharad Hett.

Children of the Green Planet may have all possessed this technique.

The Jedi of the New Jedi Order use this ability in the form of a healing trance.

Alternate Applications

Jedi Healer Barriss Offee uses the Force to heal a clone trooper.

Although it was believed that malevolent Force-users could not employ true Force healing, this is a wrong assumption. The dark side can be used to heal oneself (or others), but, twisted by the Dark Side, the power would come at a terrible price.

The most 'benign' (to the user at least) of these side effects is that the healing would only be temporary, and would require renewed applications or constant concentration to remain active. A good example of this side effect of Dark Side Healing is Darth Bane. By focusing on the pain and anguish of others, he fueled the Dark Side and could unnaturally sustain or invigorate himself. After being poisoned by the Brotherhood of Darkness, he resorted to using this form of Force Healing to keep himself alive long enough to reach Caleb, a true Force healer. He did so by murdering a farmer's children before the farmer's eyes; the pain of the children's death coupled with the agony felt by their father before his own death was enough to sustain Bane for hours. He would use this power periodically over his career (despite not being needed while he was wearing his Orbalisk armor, which organically repaired him), and it's possible he learned it from the holocron of Darth Revan.

Darth Vader also experimented with Force healing fueled by the Dark Side, in which meditation on anger and frustration at his life and circumstances would allow his lungs to function without the aid of his hyperbaric chamber or his life support suit. He too quickly discovered that the Dark Side could offer only a perversion of true healing, as the damaged alveoli of his lungs did not heal permanently, but rather seemed to remain functional as long as the intensity of his anger focused the power of the Dark Side. He only managed to maintain this power for a brief time; the pleasure he received from the healing process would eventually break in his concentration, although he was slowly able to expand the duration of functionality of his lungs, starting at a few seconds and gradually managing up to a few minutes. Vader's perception was that joy and happiness poisoned the dark side's power, and as such they sabotaged the temporary healing the technique afforded. However, he theorized that, with much practice and enormous willpower, he would eventually no longer be constricted by his life support system.

A much more disgusting example of terrible price to pay for keeping one's body functional trough the Dark Side is the case of the ancient Sith Lord Darth Sion, the Lord of Pain. Sion could focus on his own pain and agony, use it to fuel the Dark Side and recover from grievous wounds or death (or close to it as he could get with his power) nearly instantly. Sion's capability with this technique was almost perfect, but over time he received so many otherwise fatal wounds he was in constant agony (which he welcomed, as it served only to fuel the Dark Side within). To accomplish this gruesome task, he had to channel the Force constantly to literally hold his body together. It was, however a near-perfect self-fueling process: more pain meant more power, more power meant more damage could be sustained, more damage meant more pain. Medical staff examining his body, even while unconscious, concluded that gravity itself should be pulling it apart, so damaged was his physical shell. Sion died only when the Jedi Exile sowed doubt in Sion's mind, convincing him that his Force-dependent "life" (if it could still be called such) was not worth existing.

It is possible that Exar Kun unknowingly used Dark Side healing to restore his shattered body to wholeness when it was crushed in the tomb of Freedon Nadd; however, it is just as possible that this was the spirit of Freedon Nadd himself working some sort of Sith magic.

Darth Plagueis, the master to Palpatine also experimented with a dark side variant that would grant him the ability to create, maintain, or save life by manipulating midi-chlorians to a certain degree. Plagueis stated that a child born of this power would be the embodiment of the Force. Although Sidious stated to Anakin that Plagueis had complete control over this ability, it is unknown whether he really was in actuality successful in developing this power. Nevertheless, according to the Sith Lords, he had employed this power to create Anakin Skywalker, but this, itself, has never truly been proven. If Plagueis did have control over this ability prior to his death, it is also questionable whether Darth Sidious, who the knowledge would've been passed down, had access to the technique as well. His comments to the newly-appointed Darth Vader would seem to suggest otherwise. Whether or not they knew how to save someone from the brink of death, they could not, however, save themselves and gain immortality–or more accurately, the preservation of their personalities after death. This power, according to Jedi Masters Qui-Gon Jinn and Yoda could only be attained by a Jedi because the secret to it, is love.

Cade Skywalker uses his unique form of Force healing

Force Resuscitation

Perhaps most interesting of all, a descendant of Darth Vader himself named Cade Skywalker had the ability to bring others back from the brink of death, healing mortal wounds. Not much is known about this ability, but it seems as if he could only use it during times of intense emotional distress. It should be noted, however, that Force Resuscitation cannot be directly liked with the same set of abilities as a normal Force Heal, and may or may not be related at all. He believed that he had to call upon the dark side in order to use this talent, though his former Jedi Master Wolf Sazen believed that with proper training the light side could accomplish such a feat as well. Either way, Cade's wholly unique gift was so physically and emotionally draining that after using it for the first time he forsook the Force entirely for over seven years. He even went as far as using death sticks to further deaden his abilities.

Behind the scenes

In games such as Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic and the Dark Forces series, the player can give this power to the protagonists, to cure themselves and their party members of injuries or even poison.

In the games, the usage of the power is accompanied with some effects, like glowing swirls and sounds. These are believed to be more visual aids to the player, rather than an "actual" depiction of how the power behaves.

Also in these games, the healing power is represented by a cross that strongly resembles the Swiss cross.

(Redirected to Hit Points article)

From TibiaWiki

Each character has a limited amount of Hit Points and when their Hit Points drop to zero, due to damage through weapon attacks, poison or other harmful effects, will die and return to the temple in their hometown. HP is the common abbreviation for Hit Points. Each character begins with 150 hitpoints when they first arrive on Tutorial Island.

The amount of hitpoints you lose is affected by the amount of armor you are wearing. If the stats on the armor are high and you are wearing a full set, you will not lose as much damage as if you were just wearing a weak helmet. Different monsters do different amounts of damage to your HP. Rats can do around 10 damage while demons can do over 750 at a time. If your hitpoints are low you shouldn't go fighting, heal yourself or eat something to restore your health instead.


Types of healing items

  • Eating food: This will regenerate your HP slowly. The more your hp goes up depends on the type of the food you eat. E.g. Dragon ham will regenerate hitpoints for a longer time than a carrot will. If you have promoted your character (to royal paladin, elite knight, elder druid or master sorcerer), your hitpoints will regenerate slightly faster. Different vocations regenerate their HP in different times. A knight gets it fastest while a mage or non vocation character (characters on Rookgaard) will regenerate slowest.
  • Sleeping: If you are premium you can eat food and use a bed in a house or guild hall to gain hp when you are logged out.
  • Small Health Potion: Before Update 8.2 widely used only on Rookgaard. These can be useful for very low levels, healing around 60 hp. They can be bought in a mountain east of Rookgaard village, or in most magic shops around the mainland. The good thing with these are that no specific magic level is needed.
  • Intense Healing Rune (IH): These are useful until you are around level 15. These runes can only be made by druids who have learnt the intense healing rune spell, Adura gran. This rune is also useful to heal summoned/convinced monsters at low cost if you are sorcerer or paladin.
  • Ultimate Healing Rune (UH): Before Update 8.1, this was the most common and the best type of healing. It was the most widely used and sold rune in Tibia, mostly used by knights. Nowadays, it heals barely as much as a health potion. These runes can only be made by druids who have learnt the ultimate healing rune spell, Adura vita.
  • Health Potion: Introduced in Update 8.1. Costs 45 gp, heals around 150-200 hp.
  • Strong Health Potion (SHP): Introduced in Update 8.1. Can only be used by knights and paladins above level 50. Costs 100 gp, heals around 300 hp. (It used to heal 400 - 500 HP at a cost of 110 gp in the beginning.)
  • Great Health Potion (GHP): Introduced in Update 8.1. Can only be used by knights above level 80. Costs 250 gp, heals around 500 - 600 hp.
  • Ultimate Health Potion (UHP):New potion introduced in the Update 8.11. Can only be used by knights above level 130. Cost 310 gp. Heals about 750 hp.
  • Life Ring/Ring of Healing: These will continuously recover your health (and mana) over time, during 20 minutes to Life Rings, and 8 minutes to Rings of Healing. Though, Ring of Healing will heal you at a faster rate.
  • Soft Boots: These will continuously recover your health (and mana) over time for 240 minutes until they have to be repaired.
  • Priest NPCs: Some NPCs (usually found in Temples) can heal players up to a small amount of hitpoints if they are severely injured.

Instant Healing Spells

  • Light Healing (exura) 20 mana lv 9: Very weak healing spell, used by knights to train magic level. Useful for slow healing at a very low cost of mana but not useful if you need to heal fast.
  • Intense Healing spell (exura gran) 70 mana lv 11: Modereate healing spell, used by paladins around lvl 11-15 and sorcerers/druids to heal themselves, useful in tight spots but not an amazing spell.
  • Ultimate Healing spell (exura vita) 160 mana lv 20: This spell is available to all vocations except Knights. Useful spells that heal around 2 times more than exura gran. This is a must buy spell.
  • Divine Healing (Exura San) 210 mana: This spell is available to premiun paladins only. It heals more than exura vita but it cost more mana to use. Very useful for fast healing.
  • Wound Cleansing (Exana Mort) 65 mana lv 30: This spell is available to premiun knights only. It heals faster than exura but has a higer cost of mana.
  • Heal Friend (exura sio "name") mana 140 lv 18: This spell is available to premiun druids only. Heals between Intense Healing and Ultimate Healing. Apart from healing other people, you can also heal yourself (by simple saying 'exura sio "your own name') It will heal you entirely, provided that your magic level isn't too low.
  • Mass Healing (exura gran mas res) mana 150 lv 36: This spell is available to premiun druids only. Heals the spell caster and a big area around him. Good for parties on non-pvp servers.
