  • Unlike many health regeneration items, which directly increase the HP gained per second, the Vital Crystal speeds up the health regeneration ramping by 20%.[1]
    • For example, 5 seconds after taking damage, the player will receive same amount of health regeneration that would normally take 6 seconds to reach.
