Diablo 3 Wizard Life on Hit Percentages for All Skills

Diablo 3 Wizard Life on Hit Percentages for All Skills by Dekkar

All of these tests were done in Act 1 of Inferno on the slow zombies. I need some help from the rest of you wizards in helping me correct and refine some of these values. They’re only rough values at the moment because I haven’t had time to do more extensive testing (and because the life-on-hit ring I was using was a low value, so there’s rounding error). In any event, I thought it would be useful.

When I refer to a % value, that’s the percent of life-on-hit you get. So if you cast Magic Missile and you have 100 life on hit, you get 100 life, but casting Arcane Orb only gives you 33 life per target hit by the explosion.

EDIT: Updated values! More accurate! As of May 29, 2012

Life per Hit (Inferno)

————-SIGNATURE SPELLS————–
Magic Missle:
-Charged Blast: 100% (single target)
-Split: 33.8% per target hit
-Penetrating Blast: 24.6% per target hit
-Attunement: 100% (single target)
-Seeker: 100% (single target)

Shock Pulse:
-Explosive Bolts: 16.5% per target hit per bolt + 33% on explosion
-Fire Bolts: 33% per target hit. This includes per bolt. If more than 1 bolt hits, you get the benefit of both (ie: 2 bolts is double the healing 1 bolt is)
-Piercing Orb: 25% per target hit
-Lightning Affinity: 33% per target hit
-Living Lightning: 2% per tiny shock.

Spectral Blade:

-Deep Cuts: 88.8% per target per triple hit, bleed generates no healing.
-Impactful Blade: 66.6% per target per triple hit.
-Siphoning Blade: 66.6% per target per triple hit.
-Healing Blades: 66.6% per target per triple hit.
-Thrown Blade: 33.3% per target per triple hit.

Electrocute:
-Chain Lightning: 16.5% per target hit
-Forked Lightning: 16.7% per target hit, unsure of auxiliary bolt healing (test?)
-Lightning Blast: 16.7% per target hit, successive hits heal all in one tick as a lump sum
-Surge of Power: 25% per target hit
-Arc Lightning: 16.7% per target hit

————-SECONDARY SPELLS————–

Ray of Frost:
– (All Runes): 33% per tick for all runes except Sleet Storm. Remember that ticks are every half second, so if you channel for 2 damage ticks (ie: anything longer than a brief touch), you’ll see a 66% healing number because it adds them up.
-Sleet Storm: 50% per target per tick

Arcane Orb:

-Obliteration: 33% per target hit
-Arcane Orbit: 25% per target hit
-Arcane Nova: 16.7% per target hit
-Tap the Source: 33% per target hit
-Celestial Orb: 20% per target hit

Arcane Torrent:

-Disruption: 20% per missile per target hit
-Death Blossom: 60% per missile per target hit
-Arcane Mines: 50% per mine explosion per target hit
-Power Stone: 20% per missile per target hit
-Cascade: 20% per missile per target hit, cascading missiles generate no healing (? needs further testing)

Disintegrate: (remember that ticks are every half second, so if you channel for longer than 0.5 seconds, you see the sum of the healing for 1 second or 1 tick, which is 22% per target). A “touch tick” in this case is just tapping the monsters with the beam for 1/4 second, not channling.
-Convergence: 11% (22%) per target per touch tick.
-Chaos Nexus: 11% (22%) per target per touch tick + 11% (22%) per target per tick of the sub-beam.
-Volatility: 12.5% (25%) per target per touch tick, explosion value unknown for now
-Entropy: 16.7% (32%) per target per touch tick
-Intensify: 16.7% (32%) per target per touch tick

NOTE: Wraith did some testing with conflicting results. Here are his results for Disintegrate:

-Convergence: 33.3% per ½ second (per target hit)
-Chaos Nexus: piercing beam 33.3% per ½ second (per target hit), small beams 22.2% per ½ second against 1 target, being near 2 targets gave inconsistent results but seemed to average around 33.3% per ½ second (more testing required), 3 targets either kill me or die too quickly at the spots I tried testing at.
-Volatility: 23.46% per ½ second (per target hit), explosion ???
-Entropy: 50% per ½ second (per target hit)
-Intensify: 50% per ½ second (per target hit)

-Force Affinity: 16.7% per target hit
-Forceful Wave: 16.7% per target hit

    Thanks for the numbers. They are disappointing but explain why my life per hit gem sucks so hard. I was hoping to have found a solution to my regen problems :(
