How to rest in game?
Resting will restore characters to full Health, remove Maimed and other long-term afflictions, and restore all per-rest abilities, spells, talents, and item charges. In order to rest, you need to find a safe location (no enemies around), and have camping supplies.
What is the difference between Endurance and Health?
When characters take damage, the damage is first applied to Endurance and then the same amount is applied as health damage. However, a character has a larger pool of Health than Endurance. Once combat ends, endurance is regained rapidly, if a character's endurance becomes totally depleted, that character will fall unconscious and characters with already low Health can die. Health does not regenerate on its own, in order to restore your health, you must rest.
