Life

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
The Player's Life Orb at full life

Life (also called Health or Hit Points) is the health source of a character or monster. For the player it is shown as a red orb in the lower left of the screen and will decrease when receiving damage. Characters die when they reach 0 life and must be resurrected in town. Players can restore life by using flasks, gaining life regeneration from passive skills and equipment, or leeching life from enemies, among other mechanics. Life is fully restored upon entering a town. Light radius is based on current life.

Every class starts out with 50 life and has the following stats: {{#ask:

-Has subobject::Character
Has stat id::~*life*
[[Has stat value::>>0]]
|?Has stat text=
|format=ul
|sort=Has stat text
|mainlabel=- 

}}

Calculation

Total maximum life can be calculated with the following formula:


 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} \begin{align}
\text{Life}_{\text{total} } = & \left(38 + \text{Level}_{\text{Character} } \times \text{Life per level} + \frac{\text{Strength} }{2} + \sum_{i=1}^{a} \text{added Life} \right) \times \\
& \left( 1 + \sum_{j=1}^{b} \text{increased Life}_{j} - \sum_{k=1}^{c} \text{reduced Life}_{k} \right) \times \\
& \prod_{l=1}^{d} (1 + \text{more Life}_{l}) \times \prod_{m=1}^{e} (1 - \text{less Life}_{m})
\end{align}

Flat life bonuses are added directly to base life (+X to maximum Life). Percent-based modifiers apply to flat life bonuses, as well as base life and life from strength (+X% increased maximum Life). See modifiers.
