Used to preserve food from rotting and increase chance of monsters dropping corpses.

Manual info[]

This skill is automatically used. Certain types of food (mainly corpses) decompose over the time and finally vanish. Food preservation helps to prevent such food from decomposing. If given enough time, food will nonetheless decompose... this skill only helps to slow down the process. It also makes it more likely to find corpses of monsters you slay.


Effect of stopping rotting is hard to evaluate - on small scale test skill at 20 gave approximately 20% less chance [per turn] to get item rotting. Further investigation is needed.

For corpse drops: At 60 rate is doubled and at 90 tripled.
