% health runes are not worth getting

Senior Member

Unless you are planning on getting 3.4kish health, and the health per level runes are better. The health per level seals give you 19.44 each, x9 that equals 174.96 health at level 18. The quints give 48.6 health at level 18. Three will give you 145.8 health at level 18. Together that is 320.76 (321) health at level 18.

health % runes for glyphs give 4.5% and quints give 4.5%. 9% would require at least

3566 health.
to be as effective. You're welcome.

I think you mean seals not glyphs.

I think you mean Seals, right?

Seals
+5.35 HP flat
+1.08 hp/level (174.96HP @ 18)
+0.5% HP ( +5 HP per 1000 hp each glyph. @ 4000hp => +20 hp per glyph )

Yeah, to be ever better than the HP/Level runes, you'd have to hit 4000 HP IMO. And even then you're probably already level 18 and max geared. You probably would have benefited more from HP/Level.

To compare:
Annie's starts with HP = 424 at level 1, and goes to 500 at level 2.

@
Level 1: 424HP x 0.005 = +2.12 HP (exactly)
Level 2: 500 x 0.005 = +2.5HP

Fundamentally @ level 6,
Level 6: 804HP x 0.005 = +4.02HP
HP/Level Runes @ Level 6 = 1.08 x 6 = 6.48

Results?

> +HP% HP seals aren't better than flat HP seals til sometime after level 6.
> Thus, HP/Level runes > +% HP seals.

If you use a non-squishy like Allistar the 0.5% Seals provide:
Level 1 = 554 HP = +2.77 HP
Level 6 = 1063.41 HP = +5.31705 (Essentially equal to +HP flat Seals)

Early Game is epic fail with the 0.5% Runes. The only way you might have some success with them is if you bought HP Items first, which you won't do unless your tanking or buying Heart of Gold.
Heart of Gold = +250 hp, so
Level 6 Allistar = 1064 + 250HP = 1314 => 6.57 HP from 0.5% HP Seals. Not a lot! But, *slightly* better than HP/Level runes @ Level 6.
But, level 7 comes along and...

HP Level Runes @ 7 = 7.56
Alistar @ level 7 HP = 1165.29 (+250 Heart of Gold) = 1415.29 HP
Level 7 Alistar %HP Rune = 1415.29 x 0.005 = 7.07645

Oh look, % HP Runes dropped off again. And they're gonna stay that way unless you buy another +HP Item ASAP.

So-- On this point, I agree 100%. HP/Level > 0.5% HP Runes 95% of the time.

Quints
+26 HP
+1.5% HP ( +15 HP per 1000 Life, +45 HP @ 3000 Life each)
+2.7 HP/Level

% HP Quints wont pay out over flat ones until HP is greater than:
HP = (26 / 0.015) = ~1734

@ Level 6, 2.7 HP/Level Quints = 16.2 HP

Level 6 Allistar with Heart of Gold (+250HP) --
HP = 1064 + 250HP = 1314
+1.5% HP Quint => 19.71 HP from +1.5% Quints. In this case, they're better than HP Level Quints, but that is because you purchased Heart of Gold.

HP Level Quints @ 7 = 18.9
Alistar @ level 7 HP = 1165.29 (+250 Heart of Gold) = 1415.29 HP
Level 7 Alistar %HP Quint = 1415.29 x 0.015 = +21.22935 HP
Level 7 Alistar %HP Quint w/o +HP Items = 1165.29 x 0.015 = +17.47935 HP

By this time, Level 7 +1.5% HP Quint is still better than HP/Level.

I think it's fair to say +1.5% HP Quints outshine HP/Level Quints if you plan on purchasing ANY +HP Item early game.

This means: early game your not getting much benefit. Late game you do. The Quints are far more worth it for their value late game. Especially for tanks late-game. But, if your not a tank, don't buy them as they'll suck for you compared to HP/Level ones!

It's exactly like that for many runes (such as +AP or +AP/Level Glyphs)

These runes are designed for your early game not late game. The % HP increase will give you significantly more health pre lvl 10 than the hp/lvl runes while granting you less late game on a champ with a reasonable health pool, but still more than flat health runes.

A couple things:

1. Thank you, I edited my post.
2. The seals themselves give .5% each, not .05%
3. I'm Talking HP per level quintessences, not Flat. This changes your end argument a bit.

The flat hp quints are better early game and the hp/level quints are better late game.

But the percent health quints are better than the hp/level early game and better than flat hp quints late game.

So they're a middle ground. Stronger than per level early game, stronger than flat late game. I don't see an issue.
