Breathing Volumes

Interaction between Iron Will III and Stridor III

The percentages on both Iron Will and its Killer-pendant Stridor IconPerks stridor.png are misleading in their interaction with one another, as contrary to the popular perception of percentages, they do not represent actual percentages in the Game code, but rather numeric values that are combined additively.

A good analogy is a volume slider ranging from 0 to 100, which can also go above 100 if necessary.

  • Positive values move the volume slider upwards, increasing the volume.
  • Negative values move the volume slider downwards, lowering the volume.

  • Iron Will does not work while in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
  • Iron Will is countered by Stridor IconPerks stridor.png.
  • In the old Game Manual Iron Will features a different flavour text: "This is nothing!"
