Hi,

 

First of all: thanks for a great game!

However, I have a problem. When around floor level 10 (give or take), I often get affected by this "affliction", disease or whatever you'd like to call it (there's no message), that rapidly eats away even at my very high hp. It never stops, until I die. It doesn't matter if I use Miracle, Growth, Mend Wounds or 20 Healing Potions, it just keep going. I even tried saving and re-loading, it still goes on.

What is this, and can really nothing be done? A bit frustrating since I'm playing on hardcore, and have to start all over.

Cheers!

This is likely zombie puke which is attack by some higher level zombies. If you turn verbose on from the menu, the game will show the name of attacks you are hit with. This is a dot, and a very nasty one. It stacks, so multiple hits will make it even worse. It is a melee range attack though. If you stay away from zombies that have it, then you should be save. I'm finishing up some bugs with the expansion. Once that is done, then I'll start implementing a variety of enhancements to the game. One of them will be a variety of extra potions that will protect you from various attacks as long as you have them handy. Should make the game so that you only die if you are not prepared.

Very nasty seems to be an understatement - isn't it impossible to avoid dying? I run away as soon as I see my health dwindling, so I doubt that many attacks could have stacked... and yet I lose 1000-2000hp before dying. Is it really supposed to work like that?

Yep...

CreatureAttack.createDot(CreatureAttack.ATTACK_SKIN_ROT, CreatureAttack.TARGET_PLAYER, 0.3f, 1, 20, 50, 5000)

I'll explain the values

30% chance of attack being used if in range

Range of 1 tile

20 ticks

50 damage per tick

A tick occurs every 5 seconds

Once I add in the extra potions, attack like these will only be dangerous if you don't have a potion.  Also, this attack is less dangerous if you have regeneration, healing spells, or miracle.

It indeed seems to have been the puke attack - and I can confirm it's survivable. But it took a loooot of spells, time and potions :) But is it also healable just with a simple Miracle? Seem to remember having tried that, but who knows. Thanks!
