Resolving vigor

Why does the tool tip say my vigor will heal 9624 health over 5 seconds, yet it's only doing 800 a tick, crit heals for 1400

    Do you happen to be in Cyrodiil, IC or battlegrounds?

    The Battle spirit there halves all healing received by 50%.

    Also it says 5 seconds but ticks 6 times.

    So you need to divide your total by 6, not 5 - making it appear smaller.

    Threw me off the first time I saw it too

    Even if it was 6 ticks it's still less than half of what it should be

    Makes perfect sense.

    9600 / 6 = 1600 (ish)
    1600 / 2 = 800 per tick.

    Vigor is 6 ticks and then battlespirit.

    L2P. Dont call a bug something that isnt a bug , upgrade Your gear because 9k isnt something strong Your tootlip should show atleat 12k if You would wear the least proper gear. Also learn to use other sources of defense like other heals and block , dodge plus things that certain class have to offer.

    I was waiting for someone to pipe up and have ago, yes alright I didn't know about battle spirit, and yes my vigor heal is small I was doing some basic testing that's all.

    When pressured, you can't expect to put heal it without relieving the pressure. Cc your opponent, find a line of sight, etc. What class are you because that makes a difference. E.g., a stamsorc can vigor, streak to a line of sight, then dark deal. Nightblades can vigor then cloak. StamDKs are in a bad spot because they have no escape outside of blocking. There's a thread about how StamDKs are in a bad spot.

    that is a terrifyingly low vigor tooltip.
    consider upgrading your gear, seriously.

    Not by vigor alone! Lol it's about your class, Stam warden has a spot heal, Templar Sorc and NB kinda have to decide between FM or Rally.

    Typically, that's why you see vigor and rally on builds. Vigor is more of a damage Reduction than a heal (typically you're fighting when you use it) and rally becomes your spot heal.

    Some really offensive builds can crit for 3k vigor tick - but even then under pressure you're gonna want more.

    Anyway, that divide by 6 makes me sad cuz I like big numbers lol

    I highly recommend healing proactively. For a stam build, Vigor is a heal over time and so is Rally. If you've got a moment to breathe in combat, cast Vigor and get those heals ticking before you need them, because if you wait, you'll be in the danger zone before you realized you needed to heal and then its hard to catch up.

    you fell prey to the POWER CREEP problem in this game's design that forces constant nerfs as power increases. DMG nerf, HEALING nerfs, etc.

    OP, if you think you are gonna survive just with heals, think again.

    Besides battle spirit, there's that little debuff called "minor defile" and his big brother "major defile" that reduce your healing even more (15 and 30%)... and their very good friend in CP called "Befoul" that increases the debuff strenght.

    Of course, you have minor/major mending, Vitality some sets with extra healing taken and skills, passives and even a race that has increased healing done and received, that help you a lot to counter those ***...

    Yup. there are a lot of things you need to juggle while making a build... but that's the first step in the right direction.
    Sarcasm is something too serious to be taken lightly

    I was born with the wrong sign
    In the wrong house
    With the wrong ascendancy
    I took the wrong road
    That led to the wrong tendencies
    I was in the wrong place at the wrong time
    For the wrong reason and the wrong rhyme
    On the wrong day of the wrong week
    Used the wrong method with the wrong technique
