    No. It would just restrict them from being imprinted by that empath.

    MATH

    - Start with 100.
    - Add (INF bonus * 2) if INF bonus > 0.
    - Add (300 * (Spell Research Ranks - 1.5 * (Level + 1))) / (1.5 * (Level + 1))
    -- Spell Research Ranks is Empath + Minor Spirit + Major Spirit, with each circle capped at (Level + 1).
    - Add (200 * (Lore Ranks - 0.5 * (Level + 1))) / (3.5 * (Level + 1))
    -- Lore Ranks is Transformation + Transference + Blessings
    - Add (150 * (Skill Ranks - 2 * (Level + 1))) / (4 * (Level + 1))
    -- Skill ranks is Physical Fitness + First Aid.

    The sum of those numbers / 10 is used as the base chance for the roll to imprint!


    WAT HELP ME

    There is a base 10% chance to succeed no matter your training.
    Every 5 points of influence bonus gives 1% more chance.
    Spell research past 1.5x but any ranks over (Level + 1) in each circle aren't counted gives up to 30% more chance.
    Lore ranks past 0.5x in Transformation + Transference + Blessings (Can go up to 4x) gives up to 20% more chance.
    Physical Fitness and First Aid past 2x (Can go up to 6x) gives up to 15% more chance.


    EXAMPLES

    An empath who is: 1x Empath Circle, 0.5x Minor Spirit, 0.5x Major Spirit, 1x in (Transformation + Transference), 1x in Blessings, and 2x in PF and First Aid would have ~45% chance.
    An empath who is: Overtrained in Empath, 0.4x Minor Spirit, 0.4x Major Spirit, 0.5x Transformation, 0x Blessings, 2x PF and 1x FA would have ~25% chance.

    I forgot to specify that all of these lines work like INF. They are not counted if they are negative. So if an empath was not trained in lores at all they would just have a '0' for that line.

    Having read comments in lots of places, I wanted to come in and clarify some things about imprint as well as talk about some of the intentions behind it.

    1) The 1 hour cooldown is per patient, not an hour for you as a whole. This means that you can try to imprint ALL the people (Just don't run out of spirit!) once per hour, each.
    2) The healing effect I'm referring to is the ten second window after you have healed someone. If you have healed a non-empath in the past ten seconds, you can IMPRINT them without any spirit cost if you fail. I referenced this on the ESN day where I originally spoke of the transfer effect.
    3) The chance of success for IMPRINT can never reach 100% if you look at the math. This is intentional.

    The typical use of IMPRINT is intended to be used when you have finished healing someone. This is why it ends the effect (immediately granting you exp) and also doesn't cost any spirit on a failure IF you've healed that person recently. If you succeed but don't want that person imprinted, or they don't want to be imprinted by you, either of you can stop the imprint at any time.

    The intent is to reward healers for multiple patients and to encourage interaction between more than just one healer for patients. The intent is not to reward people with a healing bot by letting them be imprinted by that character all the time.

    > You sense that FIRSTSUCCESS is currently under intense physical stress.

    This means that the target is currently flagged as "in combat" so you can't tell what their injuries are yet.

    This is fixed now! You can use IMPRINT STOP on someone who is offline.
