|You are covered in illusionary wounds, causing severe damage while the effect remains active. Destroying the source of the illusion will restore all health lost to the flaying.|
Flayed is a status effect which can be inflicted on you by flayed ghosts. Each time you are flayed, you'll "lose" a moderate amount of HP which is proportional to your max HP; each additional hit by it will increase the amount of flayed damage (but can never reduce you below 35 HP) and reset the effect's timer. This damage can be healed through normal means, and attacks which reduce you to 0 HP after being flayed are lethal, but the flayed damage itself is illusory; all such damage will be immediately healed the moment you kill the flayed ghost or spend enough time out of its line of sight.
