General

Meditate greatly improves mana regeneration rates. Without it, you only gain 2 mana (per tick) when sitting.

  • For every 12 points your Meditate skill has, you will regenerate +1 mana (per tick) when sitting.
  • As long as you have trained 1 point into it, Meditate automatically happens when sitting.
  • Whether you have Meditate or not, you will only gain 1 mana (per tick) when standing.

A "tick" happens every 6 seconds (server side).

  • It does not matter whether you are sitting or standing between seconds 1 and 5, only the 6th second.


Note: While the FV Classic server emulates conditions just before RoK release, servers emulating the original release will want to follow the original patch progression:

  • August 23, 2000
    • Enable the /meditate command which automatically opens the spell book and activates meditate. Prior to this patch, meditate must be turned on using the UI.
  • August 30, 2000
    • Remove the /meditate command and replace it with an automatic meditate which activates when opening the spell book.
    • Remove the need to have the spell book open at all, for all levels rather than just 35+ characters.

Meditate Button

Prior to late Hole Era users can find the Meditate Button by opening their Spellbook, either by clicking the icon, typing /book # or using a shortcut Ctrl + b.

Before this era, for levels 1 and 34 the user must click the meditate button in their spellbook in order to meditate.

level 35+ The user can simply sit to activate mediate.
