External wounds may be received when a mob scores a critical hit against a player. Wounds accumulate and lower the maximum health of the character. For example, a character with 1200 HP and 200 External Wounds (EW) will have an effective maximum HP of 1000. If your total EW exceeds your maximum HP, you will be left with 1 HP. The max amount of EW a player can have is 30,000.
