Do vampiric runes stack?

For instance if I have a 6% vampiric and a 7% vampiric on the same hero, does the total become 13% or does the mechanic work differently?

    As far as I've been able to tell, each rune procs separately from each other. Keep in mind, by the way, that the % is not the chance (I'm sure you know this, but others may not. Took me a while to figure it out, too). Not sure what the chance is, but anyways. Imagine it like, when you attack, each Vampiric rune rolls a die. If the number is a 2 or a 4 (or whatever), it procs and heals your hero. Each rune rolls their dice separately, so if you had 3 vampiric runes, each 10% life steal, your heal might heal 0%, 10%, 20%, or 30%, if you're lucky.

    And while I don't think it matters, it seems the actual number that shows up if you successfully life-steal is a combination of all the vampirics that activated. That's the only thing that isn't separate. My Hansuke has 3 Vampirics and 2 Soul Stealers (cuz I thought it'd be funny), and will sometimes heal a little, or a lot, but it's always one number. Which is actually pretty good coding on the devs' parts!

    If I'm just psychotic and/or legally blind and someone else knows with 100% assurance how this works, and it's not how I think it works, PLEASE correct me on this!

  • Perfect, this definitely reassures what I already thought about these runes. I'm glad they do stack, and do it separately. Much better than all or nothing!
  • If damage reduction can stack then so can vampiric, just a short summary to avoid confusion

    Yeah but the question was HOW they stacked. As in, did they all activate at the same time or not at all, or did they activate individually? And I believe they're all separate

  • they all activate individually otherwise everyone would stack 5 vampiric on everyone.

    Even if they stacked to 100%, I wouldn't use any in pvp. The stats on vampiric runes are terrible.

    No... they wouldn't... since it's only a chance that they proc, you'd be betting all or nothing.

  • I don't even use vampiric runes often so Im not sure although ive seen them in action multiple times. @SonOfHilmer we know they stack but do they act individually or altogether? Probably individually
