I have varified multiple times that they have bot been poisoned, nor are they starving. Nor freezing or any other status condition. There is no cause for the damage. Wormwood is just taking tiny amounts of damage steadily over time. I tried looking this up via google, but none of his pages mention such a drawback. I tried steam, but you guys not allowing us to post there meant I could find no help there either.
Can someone please help me? This has been happening across servers. At one point in the game, he just starts slowly bleeding health until he dies. And even after coming back to life, it soon starts again.
Just play wormwood for a while, it usually starts a few days in for me. Its a very slow trickle. Its almost like W8 takes in the rain, except no sparks.
