Vitality in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice refers to the Health of Sekiro, and how much damage he can take before dying. Players can increase their maximum Vitality by collecting Prayer Beads throughout the game, and every 4 will boost this number by a certain amount.

Players can restore their Vitality with their Healing Gourd, as well as other Quick Items like: Divine Grass, Pellet, and others. Resting at any Sculptor's Idol will also restore your Vitality to full, but will respawn enemies.

      I don't like how the game doesn't show you the percentages like all other dark souls games. I not only want to see damage dealt to me but, the amount of health points I posses along with increments. FFS until know I thought Vitality and posture are the same thing and it has to do with how you parry and block. Nothing to do with actual amount of healthpoints.

          Health and attack is useless.. i made someone kill my selfi... he hit 5 times and i died when i Just have 10 vitality.. after i upgrade to 20, its still same.. Just 5 hit and die.. attack is same.. i tried kill someone and give 3 hit , and he die.. anter upgrade attack to 99, its still 3 hits.. so, i think this game use %.. 1 hit decrease 30, 45, org 80 % of our health... same to enemy.. so, if you try to collect all prayer beads, ist pointless and useless in this game.. Just try if you dont sure

            Okay is there something with the Samurai that makes them ALWAYS take half your hp with that thrust attack? They did it early game, and they do it now that I have max vit. What gives?

              Health upgrades are so pointless. Oh, the enemy two shots you? Well, now he 2 shots you a bit softer. Kinda makes me wish there were forms of damage reductionother than that worthless candy that expires after 15 seconds or so.

                It feels so bad to have a*****ton of vitality and have a mile-long healthbar only for enemies to kill you in two shots just as easily as when you had a tiny healthbar

                  Max Vitality seems to be 20. This is apparently assuming the player manages to accrue 10 Prayer Bead bracelets.
