Shrines are small altars found in various places on Super Hostile Online which grant temporary buffs to those who use them, usually in exchange for their hunger bar draining at a faster rate. There are currently three shrines in the game.
List of Shrines
The Lonely Shrine
Located on the same island as the warp to The Fallen Past, the Lonely Shrine is a modest alter found in a small clearing on the side of the mountain opposite of the warp. It offers one hour of Resistance in exchange for the player's hunger bar being drained for about a minute and a half. If the player should die before the effect runs out, it will be removed. Resting at the Inn does not remove this effect.
Shrine of Agapantha
Located on the main island in Eastern Commons atop a mountain peek, this Shrine is a giant dragon skull surrounded by other fossilized remains. This Shrine offers one hour of Strength at the cost of the players' hunger bar being drained for twenty minutes. At night, Revenants of Agapantha will spawn, which are essentially just Strays. Additonally, Bone Grunts will spawn, which are skeletons equipped with a Sharpness I bone that they rarely drop.
Altar of Doom
This shrine is found at the bottom of the Grand Cenote. Unlike the previous two, this one imbues no positive effects. Rather, it will warp the player to Valgarde City, remove all items from their inventory, and blight them with Blindness, Poison and Hunger for one minute.
