This is the most important stat. When this reaches your maximum you are DEAD.

Your maximum increases 5% for each level up to a point, then 10% each level up of survival skill starting at 100%.

Exhaustion will increase because of:

  • Starvation
  • Dehydration
  • Diseases
  • Poisoning
  • Bleeding
  • Some weather event
  • Enemies

Exhaustion will decrease because of:

  • Consume foods that reduces exhaustion.
  • Use medicines that reduces exhaustion.
  • Having both Hunger and Thirst are less than 100 (having only Thirst < 100 will only reduce the increase)
  • Resting

Resting will speed up the decrease of Exhaustion however this may still be less than the increase due to other factors
