Electrified is a debuff that causes the player to take significant damage when moving horizontally (-16 health per second) and a smaller amount of damage when not moving (-4 health per second). The damage inflicted by this debuff is capable of killing or severely weakening players relying on constant movement to avoid damage from enemies. Using a hook or teleporting with a Rod of Discord will not increase damage. Pressing ◀ Left or ▶ Right when unable to move (hooks, blocks, other debuffs, etc.) will also increase damage.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Technically, the -16 HP/s life draining only happens if player presses ◀ Left or ▶ Rightcontrols, whether player is actually moving is not the reason for it happening.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dying from the debuff will display a unique death message:
    • "<Player name> couldn't contain the watts."
  • The method in which Electrified damages the player is similar to how static electricity shocks people when they rub a static surface.
  • Although the tooltip is "You cannot move", this debuff still lets the player move freely.
