## Prettify the article? Edit

Should this article be made to look more like the Formulas:Mana Regen article?... it's so pretty! --Fandyllic 4:30 PM PDT 7 Jul 2006

Better late than never?  :) Tried to beautify it, even if it is still a stub. Took a lot from Formulas:Mana Regen but more is forthcoming, as soon as RL lets up. --BobClown 01:14, 10 August 2007 (UTC)

## Stopwatch-based info Edit

The previous formulas for health/mana regeneration of warlocks didn't seem to fit my experience at all, so I've decided to measure them using a good old stopwatch, wearing different equipment to get varying attributes. The raw data was analyzed by a gnuplot script, resulting in a good fit for the formula Spirit * 0.07 + 6. Can other warlocks verify this? --Archibalgul 12:20, 4 Mar 2006 (EST)

Alright just gave this a quick test on my 48 warlock. With 173 spirit I gained 17 health a tick and with 101 spirit I gained 13 health a tick. Your equation says with 173 spirit I should gain a little over 18 health a tick and with 101 spirit I should gain at little over 13 health a tick. Looks damn close I am curious to see if it gets worse as the spirit gets higher, this would imply that the constant should be increased a bit and the multiplicitive modifier decreased a bit. For Warriors: I tried it on my 60 warrior with 58 spirit gained 53 health a tick, the equation says it should be at 46. With 44 spirit he gained 41/42 a tick and equation says it should be a little over 35. Quick math between the two suggests spirit is counted about .9. So for me is looks like it should be something like spirit*A + B. Where A is somewhere between .8 and .9 and B is something between 1 and 3. I am wondering if there are any other variables in the health regen, like level, max health, etc. --Ralthor 12:51, 4 Mar 2006 (EST)

OK, the (101,13) pair is a perfect fit for my formula, while (173,17) is a bit below the line. (173,18) would have been perfect, how did you measure your values? Perhaps some rounding error happened somewhere.
Regarding your warrior: Given your values, the formula would be something like Spirit * 0.82 + 5.4, but only 2 measurements are insufficient for getting a reliable formula. Could you post a few more measurements, please? I could fire up gnuplot again and see what happens... --Archibalgul 06:29, 5 Mar 2006 (EST)

The measurements I did were very quick and unscientific, so your equation could be perfect. Basically I life tapped a couple times, let it tick a couple of times, then wrote down my life every tick for 4 or 5 ticks and figured out what I was gaining every tick. My warrior doesn't have much spirit gear, but with his tanking gear on he has 65 spirit which resulted in 58 health a tick. Main problem with my warrior is I used beserkers rage on him, which doesn't loose much health so I only get a few ticks in a row to record. Ralthor 12:45, 5 Mar 2006 (EST)

## Warrior Health Regeneration Edit

OK, so far I was able to collect 4 measurements for (Spirit, Health regeneration per tick): (35,29), (44,41.5), (51,42), (58,53). I don't play a warrior for myself, so I can't verify this. Anyway, 4 measurements a not enough for a reliable formula. The best fit for the current value would be Spirit * 0.96 - 4, but the "-4" looks strange IMHO. Without the constant, the best fit would be Spirit * 0.88. Could other people please post their warrior measurements? This would help to improve the formula. --Archibalgul 08:22, 7 Mar 2006 (EST)

I've been doing some heavy testing of spirit regen values for health and mana. For my warrior, testing at level 37, I'm actually getting more like 0.83 health per point of spirit. Making it exactly 5/6* spirit + gives me a constant of about +0.1. My data points are (33, 27.6), (36, 30.1), (41, 34.3), (44, 36.8). Yes, fractional values for ticks - I've been watching this stuff carefully, and I'm actually getting, say, for 33 spirit, around 60% of the ticks for 28 and 40% for 27, hence, 27.6-ish is the result.

The issue I'm having at the moment is, testing with my rogue, I'm getting nearly dead-on 0.47*spr + 0.57, which don't seem like very nice numbers. Esselte 05:00, 30 April 2006 (EDT)

## Druid Health Regeneration Edit

i did some measurements on a level 43 tauren druid and the closest formula i could get to is Spirit * 0.09 + 6.5 ,this gets very close to the regeneration for my character, but i think more people should check if this is right --Mizzajl 20:17, 24 April 2006 (EDT)

## Bonus for sitting down? Edit

Does sitting down while out of combat increase your rate of Health regeneration? -- Tracer 14:09, 1 September 2006 (EDT)

Yes, it does. How much extra you get from it is dependant on something or other; I've only got two data points, but a level 60 rogue gets a bigger sitting bonus than a level 30-something warrior. Maybe it's a percentage bonus? Need more data. Esselte 17:21, 25 October 2006 (EDT)

## New formulas? Edit

Based some refactoring from the armory and some rusty math work, I have come up with new formulas for HP5, can anyone confirm or repudiate the following?

WARRIOR: Health Regen = round((Spirit x 0.667) - 3.333)

PALADIN: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.143 + 5.000)

HUNTER: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.120 + 3.920)

ROGUE: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.333 + 0.333)

PRIEST: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.038 + 7.861)

SHAMAN: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.091 + 2.000)

MAGE: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.031 + 5.677)

WARLOCK: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.054 + 2.216)

DRUID: Health Regen = round(Spirit x 0.059 + 4.529)
