Calculations

Healing Speed

Self-Care functions by reducing the default Healing speed (1 c/s) by -0.5 c/s:

Healing Time
(1 c/s)
Self-Care
(0.5 c/s)
16 seconds
(1 Health State)
32 seconds

Healing Item Efficiency

Self-Care functions by reducing the default Depletion rate of Med-Kits.
This makes it possible for the Med-Kit to be more efficient with its given Charges.
A good analogy is a car: Self-Care would be a more fuel-efficient car, allowing it to drive farther with the same amount of fuel used when compared to a less fuel-efficient car:

Depleted Charges Self-Care I
(10 %)
Self-Care II
(15 %)
Self-Care III
(20 %)
16 charges
(1 Health State)
~14.55 charges ~13.91 charges ~13.33 charges
32 seconds
(2 Health States)
~29.09 charges ~27.83 charges ~26.66 charges


Trivia

  • It is not advised to run this Perk alongside No Mither IconPerks noMither.png, as it cancels out Self-Care completely since No Mither's Broken IconStatusEffects broken.png Status Effect prevents you from healing yourself from Injured to the Healthy State.
  • You cannot self-care from the Dying State IconHelp dying.png.
  • Self-Care can be used as a tool to wake oneself up from the Dream World by purposefully failing a Healing Skill Check.
    • This however will also reveal your location to The Nightmare IconHelpLoading nightmare.png.
  • On the official website, Self-Care features the following flavour text: "I'm not dying here in this hellhole!"
