The Importance of Mood in Soulmask

A tribesman's mood directly impacts their work efficiency and learning rate in Soulmask. When morale is low, tribesmen become less productive and slower at acquiring new skills, which can hinder your tribe's progress.

  2. Balanced Workload: Overworking your tribesmen without adequate rest will decrease their mood. Ensure to pause or cancel work tasks periodically to allow for sufficient rest.
  3. Food and Drink: High-quality meals and beverages can uplift spirits.
  4. Injury and Harsh Conditions: Battle injuries, extreme cold, and harsh living conditions can severely dampen morale.
  5. Individual Traits: Each tribesman’s personal traits can also affect their mood.
