As the fatigue system has changed with the new patch, I decided to make a guide about it. Also because other guides are inaccurate or lack vital information that is necessary to utilize fatigue to it’s full potential.
If you have comments, questions or requests please do it here instead of sending a PM as I rarely check my inbox.
What is Fatigue?
Fatigue is a limited type of exp you can gain, which can be converted to experience.
It is displayed under on your character icon under your health and mana bar:
You can see 4 type of colored sections. I marked them each with a number:
3-Light Blue: Fatigue Limit (the total amount of fatigue that can be earned)
4-Black: The experience needed to level up. The Blue and Light Blue bars are part of it too, because they don’t count as exp until you convert them.
By moving the cursor over the exp bar, it will display numbers:
Experience Earned: The total amount so far/The total amount that can be earned till the end of your current level
Fatigue Gained: The amount you have/The amount you can have
Experience Needed to Level: The amount you still need out of the total amount you need (it counts down)/The total amount you need (stays the same)
How does Fatigue it work?
-When you gain experience from killing monsters and quests, you gain the same amount of Fatigue (Blue bar) until it fills up your Fatigue Limit (Light Blue bar).
For example: You kill a monster and get 100 exp, you also get 100 fatigue. So the amount of experience you need to level up and the amount of fatigue you can gain has decreased by 100. The Black part of the exp bar has filled with a 100 Purple and Blue part, also the Light Blue part has moved towards the end of the exp bar by 100.
The Light Blue part moves?
Yes, since it is how much fatigue you will have by filling it up additional to your exp. So if the Light Blue part doesn’t cover the Black like in the picture, don’t worry. As you gain exp and fill the Purple part, it will basically push the Blue and Light Blue in front of it.
For example: You need a 1000 exp to level up (Black). You have 0 exp (Purple), 0 Fatigue (Blue) and 500 Fatigue Limit (Light Blue) which covers half your exp bar. You kill a monster. You gain 100 exp, 100 fatigue. Now you will only need 800 exp to level up, and you can only gain 400 more fatigue. Also the Light Blue Bar is now closer to the end of the exp bar and eventually it will cover it completely, but by that time there will only be Blue since you have maxed your fatigue.
At this point if you convert your fatigue, you will level up.
How do I know I have enough fatigue to level up?
-You will receive a system message “You have accumulated enough fatigue to reach the next level”.
-The Blue part starts pulsating.
-The amount of fatigue you have is equal or more than the amount you still need out of the total amount you need to level up. You can see that by mousing over your exp bar.
How to convert fatigue to experience?
By resting at any Goblin Innkeeper for a certain amount of coins. The amount of money you have to pay will increase every level and you have to pay every time you rest. The amount of fatigue you convert does not change how much you have to pay.
Now, the most important part:
How does Fatigue Limit work?
-You gain 2 types of Fatigue Limit from server resets. Server resets at 4AM PST.
-Only the daily Fatigue Limit is added to existing Fatigue Limit. The Fatigue Limit you receive from server reset directly after level up, will NOT be added to your pre-existing Fatigue Limit OR Fatigue. It will merge with them regardless of any fatigue you already have.
Example 1: You just reached lvl 15 but still have 600 Fatigue and 1500 Fatigue Limit, which is less than what you will get from server reset. You log out. After server reset you receive 22500 Fatigue Limit, but you won’t have 600 Fatigue out of 24000 Fatigue Limit. You will have 600 Fatigue out of 22500 Fatigue Limit.
Example 2: You just reached lvl 15 but have 30000 Fatigue and 44100 Fatigue Limit, which is more than what you will get from server reset. You log out. After server reset you receive 22500 Fatigue Limit, but you won’t have 30000 Fatigue out of 66600 Fatigue Limit. You will have 30000 Fatigue out of 44100 Fatigue Limit.
-At level 1 you start with 12600 Fatigue Limit, but you don’t earn Fatigue until you reach lvl 5.
-The Fatigue Limit of a new character resets ONCE if they log out of the game. DO NOT LOG OUT UNTIL YOU HAVE MAXED AND CONVERTED ALL YOUR FATIGUE. You can convert fatigue safely, but don’t relog. That’s how you get to level 10.
-From level 5 you automatically receive 900 Fatigue Limit every time you level up, separate from server reset. So upon reaching level 5 you’ll have 13500 Fatigue Limit and start earning fatigue.
-You receive a certain amount of Fatigue Limit ONCE every time you level up, after the following server reset. The way to calculate the amount is this:
For example at level 25: 25-4=21 21×900=18900 18900+12600=31500
So after reaching level 25 and a server reset, if you had 0 or 900 Fatigue Limit you will have 31500 Fatigue Limit.
-You receive a certain amount of daily Fatigue Limit from server resets if you have not leveled up yet. This is added to your pre-existing Fatigue Limit. You stop receiving it if you reach your Fatigue Limit after level up plus 6 stacks of daily Fatigue Limit. The way to calculate the amount of Daily Fatigue Limit is this:
For example at lvl 25: 25-4=21 21×150=3150 3150+2100=5250
So a lvl 25 player receives 5250 daily Fatigue Limit from server resets.
-There is a maximum amount of Fatigue Limit you can have. It is the Fatigue Limit after level up plus 6 stacks of Daily Fatigue Limit. Or the Fatigue Limit after level up times two, since 6 stacks of Daily Fatigue Limit equals the Fatigue Limit you get after level up. Or twelve times the Daily Fatigue. The way to calculate it is this:
At lvl 25: 31500+6×5250=63000
So a level 25 player can have 63000 Fatigue Limit maximum.
How do I use it properly?
-DO NOT TURN IN QUESTS IF YOU DON’T HAVE FATIGUE LIMIT.
-Max and convert all your Fatigue Limit when you level up before the server resets. Including the 900 you receive upon leveling or any leftover Fatigue Limit. I realize that means you have to rest twice, but otherwise the Fatigue Limit you’ll have at next reset will merge with what you have. That way after server reset you’ll get the full amount of Fatigue Limit for your level.
There are cases when…
-you have maxed your fatigue but converting it wouldn’t be enough to level up. If you don’t need much exp until converting can level you up, start grinding. Then convert to level, grind the 900 you get and convert again.
-you have maxed your fatigue but converting it wouldn’t be enough to level up and you still have a long way to go till you can. You can grind if you want but start stacking daily Fatigue Limit. If you’ve maxed your max Fatigue Limit and still can’t level up, convert and continue stacking.
That’s it, I hope it is helpful. Have a good one!
