"Here is a strange energy"

Karma Flowers, also known as Wheel Flowers, are rare, yellow objects which can be found growing at specific locations throughout most of the game's regions. They can be eaten to prevent Karma loss.

Function

Karma Reinforcement

When eaten, Karma Flowers protect the player's current karma level, reinforcing it with an additional outer circle. This reinforcement is consumed upon Slugcat's death, preventing their current karma level from decreasing. Attempting to starve also consumes the reinforcement without any positive effects.

Dying with karma reinforcement spawns a new Karma Flower at the location of Slugcat's death, which is marked on the map with a special yellow symbol. Dying or hibernating before consuming this Karma Flower causes it to disappear.
Karma Flowers are automatically consumed when slept with in Shelters, and their reinforcement cannot be stacked.

Monk

Monk spawns a Karma Flower on every death, regardless of whether they had Karma protection the cycle before.

Hunter

Hunter's permadeath Karma Flower, a natural Karma Flower, and a death Karma Flower.

Karma Flowers do not spawn for Hunter. Upon Hunter's permadeath, a Karma Flower can be permanently found at the spot of their death when playing as another Slugcat on the same save file. Unlike other Karma Flowers, which respawn after 5-7 cycles, Hunter's Karma Flower respawns every cycle as long as the Slugcat hibernates in the region where it is located.

If Hunter runs out of cycles and dies in a different spot, the old Karma Flower gets overwritten, instead spawning at the most recent permadeath location.

Downpour-Exclusive Content

This section contains content exclusive to the Downpour DLC. This content is not available in the base game.


Artificer

To gain maximum Karma from Echoes, Artificer must first have reinforcement from a Karma Flower.

Spearmaster

As Spearmaster, Karma Flowers cannot be consumed normally and must be hit with a Needle or hibernated with.

Expedition

Karma Flowers do not spawn naturally in Expedition. Instead, they spawn on death if the player had reinforced Karma from the Karma Flower perk. These Karma Flowers do not despawn and can only be destroyed by being handled and lost.

Monk still spawns a normal Karma Flower on every death.
