Death Prevention is a mechanic added by the Thorium Mod. Normally, when a player reaches 0 life, they die and respawn after a short delay. Various items within the mod prevent, undo, or delay this process from happening, giving players a second chance to live. Prevent, Revive, and Delay are the current forms this mechanic can take.


A Prevent stops a player from taking fatal damage, heals them by a set amount in most cases, and grants them brief invulnerability. All the below sources inflict a common debuff, preventing multiple death prevention means from being combined.

Ghastly Carapace.png Ghastly Carapace 5% of max life While equipped 2 minutes Teleports user to their spawn point

A Revive brings a dead player back to life, allowing them to continue fighting.

A Delay makes the player invulnerable to damage and stops them from dying right away for a set duration. After the duration, regardless of their health, the player dies as they would have.

Technique - Last Stand.png Technique: Last Stand 5 Technique Points 15 seconds Grants 30% increased throwing damage and speed.


  • Leaving and re-entering the world resets the cooldown of all death prevention effects, much like normal debuffs.
  • Death caused by Technique: Last Stand can not be avoided by equipping another death prevention item before the 15 second timer on the buff granted after receiving would-be fatal damage runs out.
