    29. |E| Promise*+

    Buff Requirements:
    MG Store Cost: $5.00 USD
    MG Store Link: https://store.mgftw.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=7&product_id=63


    Event Requirements:

    Description:

    Increases your maximum health by 1,000, but if an ally dies to the infected you take (400 - their level) damage. This damage scales based on your current HP % (e.g. with 50% HP, damage is halved) and is nullified if below 25% HP. Every non-bot survivor you resuscitate heals you for 100 HP and blocks Promise damage for 10 seconds.

    <No damage if incapacitated>
    <✖ VS>


    Tips on Buff Usage:
    • The Promise Buff increases your maximum HP by 1,000 but makes you take damage every time someone dies. It's useful in cases where you need to use your defibrillator on a large number of dead survivors nearby, but less useful when there's less to defib. Keep these things in mind when using the buff.

    Benefit in Buff Sets:

    Gain +1,000 increased max HP. If any survivor dies to the infected, you take (400 - their level) damage. This damage scales on current HP % and is nullified below 25% HP. Regain +100 HP for every non-bot survivor resurrected by you and block Promise damage for 10 seconds.
