In an attempt to purify the soul for the divine will of Sikkar, a Templar shall whip himself repeatedly. Such an act of faith shall restore the spiritual strength of the Templar at the price of health and endurance.
Costs 10 EP and a random amount of HP between 0 and 99 and provides SP equal to the HP cost. It is possible to go into negative HP with this skill so caution should be used in a hostile area with roaming mobs. If your life goes negative while scourging, you cannot use the skill until your life goes into the positive again. Scourge has the shortest duration of any regen skill in RetroMUD.
Newbies and others with low maximum HP should beware when using scourge while at low HP; it can kill them by removing enough HP to put them at less than negative 10% of maximum HP.
