</pvxbig> <pvxbig> [build prof=Rt/any RestorationMagic=12+1+3 SpawningPower=12+3][Spirit Light][Signet of Creation][Life@19][Rejuvenation@19][Recovery@19][Recuperation@19][Ritual Lord][Boon of Creation][/build] </pvxbig>
- Rejuvenation at level 23 has 754 Health at rank 16 spawning power (with Ritual Lord), and can be resummoned in 15.75 (15 sec recharge + 0.75 sec cast) seconds after casting (with Ritual Lord). This equates a maximum of 47.9 Health per second, divided among 8 party members who drop below full Health. Ideally, it could support 4 party members at once and always be active in-battle.
- Rejuvenation does the equivalent of 5 pips of life regeneration at level 19 with 0 ranks in spawning power, for a total of 38 seconds distributed amongst the players. One player under its effect will receive 38 seconds while 4 players will receive 9.5 seconds.
- Rejuvenation at level 23 will heal for and lose exactly 11 Health even if the party member is less than 11 Health below his or her maximum, which can be problematic with small Health degeneration when near maximum Health.
- If Rejuvenation affects the whole party for its entire duration, it will still heal for 8.6 seconds or an average of 6 Health per second. Combined with Life, that's a 14 Health per second for the entire 8 party members or 19 Health per second just for the 4 party members.
- Life will heal 4-12 party members for 80 health if refreshed every 10 seconds upon recharged; and 180 health throughout its lifespan at rank 19 spawning power (with Ritual Lord). When one factors in allies, pets and summoned creatures, that is an exponentially large amount of healing.
- Recuperation will heal 4-12 party members between 6-8 Health per second; for a maximum 424 Health throughout its lifespan at rank 19 spawning power (with Ritual Lord). When one factors in allies, pets and summoned creatures, that is an exponentially large amount of healing. Combined with Recovery, that's 75% damage reduction from pressure due to burning or 50% less pressure from other conditional and environmental effects.
