Game mechanics[edit]

Deep wound is a condition that lowers the affected character's maximum health by 20%, and reduces healing effectiveness by the same amount. Unlike other conditions, deep wound has no visual indication on the affected character; however, the right 20% of the affected character's health bar turns gray to indicate the deep wound.

Notes[edit]

  • Deep wound can never kill you by itself; the "health loss" will not take effect until it is triggered through gaining or losing health (excluding health regeneration). If deep wound would bring you below 0 health, you will not die unless it is triggered; if triggered by health gain, then you will only die if that health gain does not bring your health above zero.
  • Characters who are at full health with a deep wound are still considered to be at full health, so skills such as Edge of Extinction will not trigger.
  • If deep wound is removed before the affected creature is healed or takes any damage, it won't have done anything as it doesn't do any permanent damage in itself. The longer a deep wound is in effect, the more trouble it will cause by reducing healing and making a creature more vulnerable.
  • Deep wound is a very useful condition and is often used in PvP. For spike teams, it provides extra damage on the spike; for pressure teams, it adds healing reduction to the accumulating pressure applied upon the opposing party.
  • Healing reduction from multiple sources stacks up to -40%.

Trivia[edit]

  • The icon for deep wound appears to be a modified version of the icon used for the skill Dismember.
