Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • It is not advised to use Soul Guard together with Unbreakable IconPerks unbreakable.png-
    • Should one fully recover from the Dying State, even when under the effect of the Cursed Status Effect, Unbreakable will henceforth lose its ability to self-recover from the Dying State.
