Gain health every second; stacks duration.

— In-game description

Regeneration is a boon that grants healing over time. It stacks in duration. The boon with the highest healing contribution is used before other lower healing power applications. Only healing power affects boon prioritization; healing modifiers do not. Regeneration is affected by healing power and the caster's effective level, following this formula:
(5 + (1.5625 * Effective Level)) + (0.125 * Healing Power) health per second

At level 80 this simplifies to:

130 + (0.125 * Healing Power) health per second

Runes[edit]

Upgrade components that affect regeneration[edit]

Runes[edit]

  • Superior Rune of Dwayna.png Superior Rune of Dwayna — (2) Increases duration by 10%, (4) increases duration by 20%, and (6) increases effectiveness by 20%.

Notes[edit]

  • Certain effects of skills (like Healing Signet and Virtue of Resolve), traits (like Soothing Mist and Adrenal Health) and Rune of the Dolyak provide healing over time referred to as "regeneration" in the descriptions. However, their effects are separate from the regeneration boon (they do not use the same formula or effect icon, and are not boons and thus cannot be removed by enemies or impaired by negative effects like Dwayna's Lament, nor can they trigger traits or food that depend on the presence of a boon). However, their healing stacks in addition to the regeneration boon and any other similar regeneration effects.
  • The cat golem Professor Mew in the Uncategorized Fractal creates the same effect for its allies, the only exception is that is called "Feline Regeneration" instead.
  • Regeneration modifiers like Elder's Respite or the 6th bonus from Dwayna runes stack additively, while multiplying with outgoing healing modifiers.[1]
Calculations for highest healing effectiveness doesn't take modifiers like outgoing healing percentage into consideration, allowing a weaker regeneration to overwrite a stronger one.[2]

Player Chatter[edit]

  • When regeneration is applied to a character they will occasionally shout out one of the following lines, depending on their race and gender.
Race Gender
Male Female
Asura tango icon 20px.png Asura Invigorating!
Exhilarating!
Getting healthy.
Charr tango icon 20px.png Charr Refreshing. On the mend.
Human tango icon 20px.png Human Refreshing. Replenishing.

Sylvari tango icon 20px.png Sylvari I'm renewed. (sighs) That's refreshing.
