Explains how to Gain or Lose Weight in Mortal Online 2 to change build attributes
Gaining or Losing Weight in MO2 is wholly based off one single thing. Health Reserves. The only reserve that has effect on Weight.
Gaining Weight is very simple. You have to go over the health reserve. That means you have to max it out and then keep eating after it is maxed out.
Then you will keep getting weight. I personally find gaining weight in MO2 easier than losing it. Much like in real life. Haha.
A neat trick is to have high hunger and then restore health reserve as much as you can by resting and then eating. If you are a human and have reserves regen clade called Shamanistic you can fully max out your health reserve and then eat. If you are everything else you can max it to about 75% by resting. After a while it will stop going up. Start eating.
Needless to say the more Health Reserve bonuses food has the more weight it will apply at a faster rate, as well as restore reserves faster
Losing Weight is a bit more tricky.
It is still based off your Health Reserves. But the way it works is every time you burn a little bit of your health reserve be it through taking damage or doing something in-game that takes them away like for example killing off your character from character menu by pressing the in-game menu button “Suicide” you also lose a bit of weight (but not enough to actually notice the weight change until you do it a lot)
Sothe way to Lose Weight is to die while having Health Reserves and lose MORE of them
However, something not everybody knows is the amount of damage you take is the amount of damage your Health Reserves take, especially on death.
So if you have 150 health and you take 150 damage you die and lose minimal amount of weight because you take the minimal amount of damage to Health Reserves. That happens when you kill off your character through character menu too.
But if you were to take 200 or 300 damage you’d still be dead however the Health Reserves would take significantly more damage.
If you have little health (HP) like 100 left and say you take 5000 damage then it will still calculate taking all that excess damage to the reserve. That means you want to take as much damage as possible to lose weight faster.
You cannot take more Health Reserve damage than what you have in your Temporary Health Reserve
Therefore, best way to lose weight is jumping off really tall cliffs while having some health reserves. Resting/eating and doing it again. Because Fall damage is the strongest and biggest source of damage in the game.
Just make sure you do not accidentally over eat and gain weight instead of losing. Make sure to stop eating by moving in advance before you exceed Health Reserves
However, you do need to have Health Reserves. If you have low Health Reserves it won’t let you lose weight because you need to burn them. Small amounts like 0 or 20, 50 will not help you. You need to lose a few hundred at least. I suggest not dying if you have less than 300 Temp Reserves. It will be nigh pointless
***You can notice I outlined Temporary Reserves that you burn to lose weight and Maximum Reserves. Those Maximum Reserves actually decrease over time as you burn your Temporary ones. They will go down and so will your total health and weight***
Total Health and Weight go down slower than Max Reserves do. More Max Reserves are decreased per 1 health and 1 KG of weight. 16 Max Reserves have to go down per 1 TOTAL/MAX HP and 13 Max Reserves go down per 1 KG of weight
That is why you can be both Overweight and Stout while weighing the same amount of Kilograms. Because the game also takes account of amount of Max Reserves and Max Health you have when it chooses the body arch type for you. Because in reality you are stuck somewhere in the middle of that Kilogram. Because it does not show you half measurements i.e. 90.5 KG it only shows you full measure of weight i.e. 90 or 91 kg and hides what’s in between. But you can deduce that with Reserves and HP.
Alvarin with Aerialist Clade Perk take 50% Reduce Fall Damage so it is harder for them to lose weight by jumping off cliffs. With that Perk you lose weight 50% slower. As well as characters with high Landing Technique lose less weight due to taking less damage
Some of the best places in the game to do that include Morin Khur divide, Bakti Cliff, and Hyllspeia mountains because they got priests nearby. But you can use any high cliff that suits you, really
