What Does Vitality Do in Diablo Immortal?
Vitality is an Attribute in Diablo Immortal, and as a primary stat it directly influences other stats, including Life and Combat Rating. While the bonus to Combat Rating is worthwhile, your Vitality stat’s contribution to Life is bound to be trivial, little more than a rounding error compared to the sum total of Life you’ll gain from equipped gear.
Life is a pretty self-explanatory stat. When attacked by enemies, your Life will be reduced according to the enemy’s Damage output. As the game itself Laconically summarizes “Lose it all, and you’re dead.”
Combat Rating is another relative value, and is perhaps the most important derive stat in the game. If your Combat Rating is higher than expected for your character level you’ll deal more damage and sustain less, while the inverse may be true if your Combat Rating is lower than expected for your character level.
How to Increase Your Vitality Attribute
Most gear generally gives you flat bonuses to Damage or Life, as well as having a Magic Property and potentially a Legendary Property. In addition, equipment will give you Attribute bonuses, with rarer, higher level equipment granting higher Attribute bonuses. Any piece of gear - provided it’s at least of Rare quality or higher should have bonuses to two different Attributes on it. What two attributes a piece of equipment has on it is random, as is the value of said Attribute bonuses.
In addition to gear, your Resonance score modifies the Base Attribute bonuses your equipped gear grants you, with a higher Resonance score yielding a higher percentage bonus to your Attribute scores. Since many other derived stats like Armor, Armor Penetration, Combat Rating, Damage, Life, Potency and Resistance are directly influenced by your Attributes, your Resonance score is immensely important, and does much to determine your overall effectiveness in combat. Resonance is primarily gained by equipping Legendary Gems, the rare the Legendary Gem and the more it has been upgraded, the higher the Resonance bonus, hence the higher your Attributes will be boosted.
