Stamina

General Information

Stamina is required to perform various actions; It is represented with a green bar in the HUD.
The player's max stamina can be increased by leveling up the Endurance stat.

Stamina regeneration

  • Stamina regenerates at a default rate of 45 Stamina per second
  • Stamina regeneration can be buffed by equipping the Eternal Warrior's Ring, adding +12 Stamina per second
  • Stamina regeneration can be reduced by the following:
    • Certain Armor being Equipped (ranging from -1 to -4 Stamina per second, for each individual armor piece)
    • Slow Rolling reduces stamina recovery by roughly 20%
    • Being Overburdened reduces stamina recovery by roughly 30%
    • Greatly reduced while blocking, reduces stamina recovery by roughly 80%1
    • Plague Status Effect
      • Inflicted by Rats, Death Cloud, or Baby's Nail = -15 Stamina per second
      • Inflicted by 5-3 water = -20 Stamina per second
  • Stamina can be overdrained to -50 at the lowest

Armor Impact on Stamina Regeneration

  • Various pieces of armor come with a disclaimer in their item description stating "Its/Their heaviness slightly impedes stamina regeneration".
    • However, there are certain pieces of lighter armor that do not include this disclaimer while sometimes having an equally negative impact.
  • All Armor Sets have a hidden stat for their stamina reduction "level".
    • It applies globally to the entire set, even though different pieces within a set may have differing amounts of stamina reduction (eg, In a Level 2 Armor Set, the Head piece reduces 1 Stamina, the Torso piece reduces 2 Stamina).

Below is a complete list of all armor pieces with a negative effect. Armor not included below has no impact on stamina recovery.

Notes

  • Stamina regeneration is unaffected by player Stats and gender
  • Equipped weapons do not reduce stamina recovery. However, slow rolling or being overburdened does, so weapons may contribute to a slower recovery if the collective weight is too much.
  • Item Burden does not impact stamina recovery.
  • There may be interactions of stamina recovery reductions that have yet to be accounted for.2
  • Most NPCs obey the same rules of stamina recovery as the player character, however
    • Old King Doran has an innate buff of +15 to stamina recovery, in addition to having the Eternal Warrior's Ring equipped, giving him a total of 72 stamina recovery per second.
    • Garl Vinland has an innate buff of +12 to stamina recovery and is wearing an alternate Dark Silver Set that does not drain stamina recovery, giving him 57 stamina recovery (when he's not holding his shield up).
  • The heaviest armor set that is without any penalty to stamina regeneration is the Ancient King's set.
