Stamina is one of three Vitals in Outward, represented by the yellow circular bar in the bottom left corner of screen.
Stamina reflects the player's ability to exercise various tasks that are physically taxing, such as combat and sprinting. Players start with 100 Max Stamina, but this value can be increased or decreased during the game.
Stamina regenerates passively by roughly 2.5 stamina per second while the player is not using Stamina, unless the player is inflicted with negative Effects which reduce the player's Stamina regeneration.
The default regeneration rate can be further improved through by:
- Stamina Recovery, a positive effect from various food and potions, especially vegetables.
- Water Effect by drinking clean water and river water.
- Potions which restore stamina instantly, such as:
By performing actions that require Stamina, passing out, or other means, a portion of max Stamina becomes "Burnt", preventing stamina from fully regenerating.
Burnt Stamina can be recovered from resting, as well as the following consumables:
- Bitter Spicy Tea
- Needle Tea
- Pungent Paste
- Survivor Elixir
- Great Endurance Potion
- Crystal Powder
- Horror’s Potion
