Can Health Degen Stack?
27-06-2006, 18:25 #2
Yes, degen stacks, but the effective degen maxes at 10. Degen over 10 can be used to counter regen.
So lets say you cast both these skills on an enemy. The enemy will suffer -10 degen. If they then cast a +6 regen healing breeze on themselves, they will still be suffering 7 degen (13-6=7).

The Cap for health/energy degen/regen is 10 pips. You would get a max of 10 pips degen.. BUT... if someone put something like I guess mending @ +3 pips.... you would still get 10 pips of degen... I hope that explains it good enuff.

Yes, but keeping in mind degen caps at 10 pips either way, so they would only experience -10 if they had no other health regeneration on them. If however you put that combo on a warrior with mending (+3 pips usually) They would still experiance a -10 degeneration. If however they cast healing breeze on themself with a +6 regen, then they would only experience a -4 health degeneration.

just a little advice: deep wound will actually make degen faster, so -10 degen on a target with deep wound will be as effective as something about -13/14 i guess, keep that in mind, especially that there are ways to apply deep wound for mesmers

I've been trying Health Degen builds for some time. I wondered why their life didn't drain as quickly as I thought.

Simple : Limited to 10 because degen would be overpowered if you could go further.

If there was no limit to life degen it would be seriously overpowered.
