When you are hit by a cutting weapon in Imperian, you will usually begin to bleed. After you begin bleeding, you'll continue to bleed health points every so often. Your body will gradually clot the blood, but this will take time. There are other methods available to quicken the clotting of blood. There are certain guild-related abilities, such as bandages, and firstaid as well as an ability in survival (Clotting) that lets you do it. There is also the moss tattoo, which, when inscribed on your body, will automatically clot your blood for you. If you want, you can create a custom prompt that even lets you see more information about bleeding. HELP CUSTOM PROMPT for more information.
