Learning how to heal in Cult of the Lamb is vital for ensuring the survival of you and your flock of cultists, but the process for healing is different in both cases. Cult of the Lamb's gameplay is mostly split into adventuring through dungeons, and building or upgrading your home commune to fill it with more followers. Spreading the word of your faith is essentially your overall goal, but to do this, you will need to stay in top shape. So read on for our Cult of the Lamb how to heal breakdown, which covers healing yourself and your flock.

You will only need to worry about your own character's health in Cult of the Lamb when you are out adventuring through the various dungeons, looking for resources and killing mobs. Your health is represented by hearts, and if you lose all your hearts, then you die and are forced to return to the commune. If you lose a heart though, you can heal it back by finding hearts from killing enemies, looting chests, or finding the pool of blood that spawns in some of the dungeons. 

There are also ways to gain health bonuses and increase the amount of hearts you can pick up at a given time. Certain Tarot Cards and flock members can give you perks that relate to your health, and if you preach sermons back in the home commune, you will be able to level up abilities, which also increases your total amount of hearts.

Along with worrying about your own health, as the leader of the cult, you will need to make sure your followers are healthy too. Followers can get sick at any time from certain foods, curses, or poor conditions, which will put them out of action and prohibit them from helping around the commune. If you don't help them out, they can also die, but there are a couple of different ways to make sure your flock returns to optimal health.

One of the early-game ways to heal followers is by making them rest in a bed. Once you send them to rest, they will sleep for a couple of days before healing up. Later in the game, you can also build a healing hut, which allows you to heal followers more efficiently. 

The best way to keep your flock is healthy, is by removing any threats that will cause them to get sick and be put out of action. Building outhouses to account for the growing number of followers, and employing a janitor to keep the commune clean will alleviate the problem somewhat, but you should still expect some of them to get sick from time to time. 

That's all for our primer on how to heal followers in Cult of the Lamb, and now you know the process for healing yourself and your flock.

We also have a primer on Cult of the Lamb multiplayer, and whether you can play with friends.
