How to Increase Stamina in Nightingale

Craig Robinson

Stamina is one of the two main resources you must manage if you intend to survive in Nightingale. For the most part, your stamina will allow you to run further, jump more often, use tools and special skills, swing your weapons, and much more. However, the stamina bar has a degree of risk to it. So, to assist you with one of the best resources for survival in the game, this guide will help you increase your Stamina in Nightingale.

Increasing Stamina in Nightingale

The first thing you need to know about Stamina is that it is largely affected by two things:

  1. Meal bonuses
  2. Sleep

Meal bonuses are the most important part of increasing your base stamina meter. The number in the orange stamina meter on your HUD indicates the value of your stamina. Typically, actions will have a value of how much stamina it costs to use. So, the higher your stamina, the more often you can perform actions.

The other factor you need to pay attention to is your sleep meter. The sleep meter is a bar that goes around the outside of the stamina bar. When that reaches certain thresholds you will notice a large drop in your maximum stamina. Ensure you take rests on furniture and beds you find in vault dungeons, landmarks, or your own base. Feel free to make a crude tent and a low-quality bed if you’re out on missions to restore your stamina bar and continue on your journey.

Now, if you want to increase your stamina with meals, then here are a few tips you can use. For the most part, Stamina in Nightingale is increased by using fruits and vegetables. You’ll find a variety of berries, mushrooms, and crops throughout various worlds, such as in the swamp and the forest biomes. Combine these foods into meals at your cooking stations and you should get some high-stamina resource options. You can get some from cooking meats, too, but the fruits, salads, and veggies will always grant more stamina when compared to their meat counterparts in the same tier. In case you’re wondering, meats trend toward better bonuses to your HP.

Remember to acquire new meal recipes from Essence Traders, as they will enable more advanced meals that use more materials. Keep an eye out for those recipes as you progress through the game to further buff your character. They often cost a few Essences, depending on the tier of the world you’re in.

And there you have it; you now know everything you need to know about stamina in Nightingale.

Nightingale is a PvE open-world survival crafting game with a few unique features for the genre. First among these is the Realm Card system, whereby players can discover and craft Major or Minor realm cards to influence aspects of procedurally generated worlds or character attributes respectively. You may find yourself in a more forgiving or hostile world depending on the Major cards you use, but the Minor cards can give you an edge against foes with boosts to damage, health, stamina, or other aspects of survival. The game is set in the Victorian era and has more than a little influence from Steampunk fiction, so if that’s anything like your thing, you’ll love this world!
