First Aid


First Aid heals your character; the more First Aid you have, the higher the chance will be that you will heal yourself after combat, and the more damage you can heal. Healing yourself gives this message:

After the combat, you patch yourself up, healing <x> hit points.

The amount healed is between 0 and [2x your First Aid bonus]. If you have a dusty clipboard equipped and are Etheric, the amount healed is between 1 and [3x your First Aid bonus].

First Aid also increases the hit points gained from resting. Each level of First Aid you have gives a 10% bonus to the base hit point gains of the area you're in, rounding down. For example, resting in The Docks (which normally gives 15 HP) with 3 points of First Aid will restore 19 HP. See resting for details.
