    This may be posted somewhere already, but will health be upgradeable i/e you can gain more hearts and have like 100/100 above the hot-bar like other servers do, or will it be health in the form of armor where it takes more damage per heart etc.

    You can increase your health in many ways throughout the game. It will not add more hearths but it will increase the number.

    We don't increase any hearts, we increase the virtual amount of HP. We made it so that the HP increase is not visualised through hearts otherwise the amount of hearts would fly out the top of your screen.

    Imo you should visually show the hearts. The typical MMO way I've found of doing this is just using action bar messages to display the health as a fraction, because otherwise how will you know what your health is?

    If 10 hearts equals 100 HP at lvl 1, how many hearts do you have when you're lvl 100 and have like 5000 HP? It literally does not fit on your screen. We hacked around this for a reason.

    This is what I meant by displaying as a fraction, hopefully that clears it up

    Yes, I understand, but that would simply end up confusing. We don't know what the absolute max HP is. We could create 20 hearts based on a rough assumption that we take, but then you won't be able to see another 10 hearts for another 99 levels. The idea in general just isn't implemented with the very simple reason of it not being scalable on a large scale; either it would work very confusing (like adding a heart first at another 10hp, after that at another 100hp, after that at another 500hp, etc), or it would shoot out your game, or it would take you insanely long to even reach another heart.

    Not sure if I exactly understand what you're saying, but whatever your base hearts (the ones you see) are, you'd set them up in a ratio with the actual hearts. Example: 4000hp/5000hp would translate to 8 /10 hearts visually showing on screen. You can just keep the ratios for whatever amount of hp you have.

    We figured it out in discord - tl;dr - its a bar thats percentage-based.

    This is actually how it works.
