[Game help] ticks Many of the game actions are based upon interval timers, including combat, most autonomous monster actions, hp/mana/move regeneration, spell duration, weather, and area resets. Of these timers, the hp/mana/move regeneration timer is popularly called the tick. Ticks on Shattered Kingdoms average 1 minute of real time, but the actual amount varies randomly from 45 seconds to 75 seconds. Area resets are variable as to length depending on the area. Also note that objects lying on the ground will not be regenerated if anyone is in the area when it resets.
