Honey is a buff granted to players standing in a volume of Honey more than 5/8 of a tile deep (the honey that fills in half-blocks and slopes counts towards the depth) or being hit while wearing a Honey Comb or its upgrades. The buff provides increased life regeneration of +1 HP per second and increases natural heal rate acceleration by a factor of three. In addition, it reduces the damage from life-losing debuffs like Venom by 2 HP per second. The Honey buff has a particle effect of yellow "droplets" for the duration of the buff.
