yesterday i got hit by a lowlvl mob, the ward was still running and i took 50 dmg. this is weird, because i donīt think a lowlvl mob is able to hit someone for 100 dmg. very confusing.
The ward heals you for 50 after you get hit.
You have 1000 hitpoints.
Mob hits you for 100.
You have 900 hitpoints.
Lifeward heals you for 50.
You have 950 hitpoints.
The heal is instant so you don't see it, and if you turn on the "Show Beneficial" interface option that shows healing done, It doesn't show either.
