Things zombies can do[edit | edit source]
You need to unlock the related technology and build the right station for zombies to do the following:
- Mining ores, stone, and marble.
- Chopping wood
- Carrying things around (crates, logs, slabs, etc.)
- Growing crops
- Crafting goods
- Crafting at some crafting stations
- Writing books
- Creating known alchemy potions and creating known alchemy ingredients
- Brewing beer and wine
- Taking care of other zombies (to be confirmed)
- Acting as a greeter (needed in questline)
Creating a zombie[edit | edit source]
You may salvage one zombie at the beginning, but you can also make your own on a resurrection table by using 1x
zombie juice on a corpse and 10x
Faith. To put a zombie to work, simply carry it to the station where you want it to work and place it down when prompted. It's important to note that you cannot create a zombie without an Alchemy workbench (tier I), which is impossible to get early game.
Improving a zombie[edit | edit source]
zombies have a stat called "Work Efficiency" that represents how effective their work generally is. This stat directly relates to the number of skulls, while skulls will have no effect. One can modify a zombie much like a regular corpse, as many times as is necessary, either by autopsy at the preparation place or injections at the embalming table.
Efficiency is compared to the player crafting speed. For example a task that take 2s if done by the player will take 20s for a 10% efficiency zombie.
Efficiency doesn't have any impact on transport speed.
Maximum efficiency can be achieved by the following steps:
lye injection (++),
glue injection (+),
silver injection (-+), &
gold injection (-+).
blood (-+) &
- while keeping
flesh (-) &
skull (+) &
bone will not change the zombie quality.
heart , &
intestine with +3 variants.
There is also a guide to preparing 12 skull corpses.
The order in which these steps are applied does not matter, although you will not be able to apply
silver injection and
gold injection, if the corpse does not have at least 1 and 2 respectively at the time. You can work around this by either temporarily replacing other organs or applying
prayer for repose can also be used to increase the chances of obtaining parts with +3 .
