Argonians and Regeneration
- It's been confirmed on the attributes page that base regen is the same across all races and levels. The Argonian regen is only higher when using their greater power. I would alter the article myself, but I don't want to mess anything up..188.8.131.52 21:41, 14 November 2011 (UTC)
- What do we know about regeneration formulas. Seem as if health regen is a % of your max health per time unit rather than a fixed number of health points per time unit (ie, you regen more health per time unit if you have a bigger pool). --X 184.108.40.206 10:33, 1 December 2011 (UTC)
 NPC Health
This whole article is about player health. It should be about character health in general, including NPCs. Specifically, I came here to find out if NPCs (other than trolls) slowly regenerate health over time like players do, whether they can cast healing spells, whether the player can heal enemy NPCs with spells, whether their health resets if you go "Hidden" and lose the target, and how their base health is calculated (i.e. what does "50+(PC-1)x8.3" mean?). All that info should be found on or from this page. --220.127.116.11 15:18, 28 April 2012 (UTC)
- It seems some NPC info has been added, however, the explanation of code used in all the NPC charts is still missing. I also came here looking for an explanation of a formula similar to the one the person above mentioned. I thought PC might mean "playable character" - but that would mean the spirit wolf has an unbelievable amount of health, so it must mean something else. (It would be 3,840 HP, which I doubt!) Since this wiki is using these standard charts, which have these standard formulas, it would be nice if the general information for understanding the charts was available. For example, if you don't understand what they mean by "health" in the chart, you click the link and it takes you here... where there is no information about these formulas. :( There is also not any place on the chart where you can click to find out about the chart in general. (Such as a question mark link at the top or some small text reading "Help with Chart" or something.) Either putting the explanation in each section linked in the chart or putting a total summary of the information in a new link available in every chart would be nice.

(←) This is one of those situations where knowing the Order of Operations helps:
— Calculations inside parentheses. — Multiplications and divisions left to right. — Additions and subtractions left to right.
So to use the Wolf Spirit mentioned as an example, the formula is 350+(PC-1)×10. At a PC level of 50, the HP would work out thusly:
50 - 1 = 49 49 x 10 = 490 350 + 490 = 840
This might seem to be a tad high, but considering the skill level and perk bonuses to damage (and reduction of same due to armor), it works out.
As an interesting aside, this formula works out to give Alduin 3367 Health at PC level 81, while a Legendary Fire Dragon weighs in at 4163. You'd think the firstborn of Akatosh would be a bit beefier than the rest. Or maybe Odahviing was on to something when he said Alduin's thu'um might not be the strongest. — Unsigned comment by 18.104.22.168 (talk) at 01:47 on 8 February 2013
