Living Dead Effects
- If you would die, you instead are left at 1 health and briefly gain a status effect that gives you invincibility, while also gaining the status Call of the Dead, which cannot be removed except by it's own effect.
- This does not occur if you would be saved by Grit or a Critical Yokai Shift effect.
- If Call of the dead expires on it's own, you die.
- While Call of the dead is active, you gain powerful healing when you deal melee damage; this is the only way you can heal, and when you recover to full \health, Call of the Dead is removed. Killing an enemy also removes it.
- This only happens once per life, and resets at a shrine visit.
