Petrification is no longer an insta-kill. It starts a timer, and you get warned every 5 seconds until you turn to stone. Minimum timeout is 10 seconds, with no resistance. Maximum is 1 minute. Stone giants get around a minute to react.
- To cure yourself while turning to stone, either use the new Stone to Flesh spell, or quit the game. The spell comes in spellbook, potion, and scroll forms.
- Petrification resistance now has 2 effects. First, it protects you from getting petrified at all, whenever you’re hit by the spell. And then once that fails and you start turning to stone, it affects the amount of time you have before you die, at a rate of 5 extra seconds per 10% resistance (give or take).
