Eikthyr's Forsaken Power Effects

Reduced Running And Jumping Stamina Usage

Eiktyhr improves your stamina when it comes to running and jumping. It gives you a -60% to stamina usage when running and jumping.

This means when you run and jump your stamina doesn't go down as much as it normally would.

When to Use Eikthyr's Forsaken Power

Dodging Bosses

Sometimes it's easier to run instead of rolling away to dodge bosses, and this is where Eikthyr's Forsaken Power comes in handy. Use it when running so that you don't lose precious stamina that you could use to attack.


If you're not expecting a boss fight, you can simply use it to run around the map if you're simply exploring.

Corpse Running

If you die and respawn naked without any of your food, it's useful to have this power when you need to quickly run all the way back to your body and dodge any pesky enemies that want to prey on you.
