In Tibia, you will die when your healthpoints (HP) runs out. Not everything is lost though. The Gods will grant you another chance for a small sacrifice and you can be revived in your hometown's temple.

If you ever die, you can still see your dead body for few seconds, before the "Select Character menu" will appear.

Consequences of Death

Skill and Experience Loss

  • From Level 1-23 a player will lose 10% of his experience points, skill tries and spent mana.
  • From Level 24 and above a player will lose a maximum of experience points. where x is a player's level.

The above formula can be used for the maximum % percentage of the total exp, skill tries, and mana spent lost upon death before applying modifiers such as a promotion or blessings.

Dying at Level 6

Due to the loss of experience points upon death, every player whose total amount experience points fall below 1500, which would normally cause a downgrade from level 6 to level 5, will get their level reset to level 1 and will have to start all over with the character on Dawnport again. This is also known as "rooking". All possessions except those in the character's depots, including his Bank Account and spells are deleted upon being rooked.

Death Penalty Reduction

Skill and experience loss can be reduced in three different ways: by buying a promotion, by buying blessings, and by being killed in an "unfair fight."

A promotion reduces your experience loss by 30%, and for each blessing, it will reduce the experience loss by a further 8%.

Experience Percentage
Non-Promoted MeL*(1-Number of Blessings*8%) M%-(M%*Number of Blessings*8%)
Promoted MeL*(1-Number of Blessings*8%-30%) M%-(M%*Number of Blessings*8%+30%)

Where MeL [Maximum Experience Loss]:
Where M% [Maximum Percentage Loss]:
for players with level 24 and above, and for players with level lower or equal to 23.

Unfair Fight

If a player is killed during PvP combat and the sum of the levels of his killers is greater than his own level, he gets a reduced death penalty. In this case, the amount of experience and skill loss is equal to the victim's level divided by the sum of each killer's level. Death penalty is reduced maximally by 80%.

Item Loss

Number of Blessings Container Losing Chance Equipment Losing Chance
0 Bless 100% 10%
1 Bless 70% 7%
2 Bless 45% 4.5%
3 Bless 25% 2.5%
4 Bless 10% 1%

Red Skull

If you have a Red Skull, everything you wear will be lost upon a death - even if you have an Aol and/or all Blessings. You'll also lose all blessings upon death except for Twist of Fate.

Black Skull

If you have a Black Skull, everything you wear will be lost upon a death, including AoL and all blessings. In addition, when you respawn in the temple you will only have 40 HP and no mana.
