Default Re: Health Gating

The "health gate" is a thing that stops you from being one-hit killed. If your health is above 50%, no attack can kill you. It will only knock you down to very little health.

This makes it so having more health is actually a bad thing when you are fighting enemies that do ridiculous amounts of damage. The more health you have, the longer it takes to regenerate to above 50%, and the longer you are vulnerable to being knocked down.

Some people make builds with as little health as possible and with as much health regeneration as possible to abuse the health gate. This makes them basically invincible.
