please forgive me, if after 2yrs I still have questions about this item, now that I am worthy to wear it. I under stand the comments about not stacking with other items, but what about stacking with your AA abilities? If AA and this item stack (I think extended buff time did with coldain shawl). But now there there are so many AA's and rule revamps, I am sure what does what. I just cast and accept the out come. But before I by a ring if this value, or sink more AA into % heals it would be nice to know what is going on, and how the math works.

If I AA +10% heal (let's make it easy) and heal for 100hp that makes the amount 110 with my AA. Now if I wear this ring ios it just going to over ride my AA since it is larger and do a straight 20% heal of 120hp? Or does the ring stack with the AA. If they stack is it before the cast, so that they become 30% for a 130hp heal, or does my AA calculate first at 110hp and then the ring stacks that for 20% so it is a 132hp heal (20% of 110 is 22). And then let's say I have a crit AA heal, does that go off of my total heal (with ring and/or AA modified), or is it just a double heal of the base, and then would the ring 20% the crit?

Sorry for all the questions on a dead thread, but I am just starting to AA and get into the levels where this info would be helpful.

Does anyone know if the effect on this stacks with the effect "Increases the potency of your healing spells" from the Mark of Dunes earring??

Was just wondering if it was worth having both or if one would cancel out the other. Thanks in advance

This is the other item / effect in question here

No, the 2 won't stack.
The Fiddleback item is a higher level focus effect so you'll never see this ring go off at all.

Only the highest % at level will trigger each time.

I'm not familiar with the earring you're speaking of, but the general rule for focus effects - regardless of what they are - is if they do the same thing, the stronger one takes effect, trumping (not stacking) the weaker.

For an example, I have a Fabled Robe of the Ishva, which has the generic Improved Damage IV, and an Icy Torque of Distrust, which has a stronger focus for Fire nukes only.

When I cast any of my Magic-based nukes, the robe glows and I get a random 1-15% boost in the damage. When I cast the fire nukes, the necklace glows, and I get a random 1-30% boost in the damage. The effects don't stack, but I get the stronger of the two.

Otherwise, you would have people buying every effect they could (DoN augments, for example), stacking them, and having +450% to damage on nukes, and people healing for 28k, non-critical.

If you're looking to get an edge on your healing, in addition to an improved healing item, look for extended effect items for your HoT spells - the strongest one I know if is on the Mask of the Mad Musician. I'm fairly sure there's a HoT improvement out there somewhere that's similar to the Burning Affliction line of foci, but I'm too lazy to dig for it. You can check out the list of foci available and wade through it, if you like.

Oh... And AAs are your friend.
