    Stacking Abilities

    Hi. Longtime reader, first time poster.

    I tried searching for this but didn't find anything.

    I'm wondering how identical abilities on different pieces of equipment work. For instance, I have an amulet with Replenish Life 4 and a ring with Replenish Life 3. Will these two stack to give me a total of Replenish Life 7 or will I just recieve the greater of the two for a total of Replenish Life 4? Is this relative to what kind of ability it is? Like: Will a helm with 10% Faster Hit Recovery stack with armor with 10% to give me 20% Faster Hit Recovery?

    Thanks for the help.

    fhr, fcr, fbr, frw and much more mods stack together with no probs...
    except skill based mods: 13lvl insight will not stack with 17lvl insight making 30lvl insight. higher lvl skill will always overcome lower.
    except some bugs...

    It is not really a bug (If you are refering to stacking of auras like I think you do).

    Your aura from for example insight will not stack with a merc, but the aura from a dream helm and dream shield will stack, as well as Hand of Justice (HoJ) and and Dragon's holy fire aura will stack.

    The bug Epic is refering to is "stacking" those auras to insane lvls, but it's a bug and should not be used nor told how to do or linked to on this forum. I believe discussing it is ok though as nothing on how it actually work is revealed (?).

    There are also many other mods that stack ;)

    yet there are mods that don't stack aswell. Knockback doesn't stack - one source is enough - deadly strike doesn't stack with critical strike.
    Nearly all things on two different weapon - barb or assassins - don't stack.
    Ias-off weapon doesn't stack for certain attacks - whirl wind, shape-shifted druids.
    ...

    So what are the mods you are after? Faster hit recovery and replenish life stack.

    If I'm not mistaken ctc-spells won't stack either.
    It might come in handy if there was a list of mods that stack and mods that don't. However I wonder if the usefulness of said list would outweigh the efforts one would put into compiling such a list.
