balance VS vampirism VS siphon runes
Does anyone know the stats on these 3?

it seems like vampirism and siphon both take 2 and then balance is just 1 and 1? but when I looked at my character with them equipped it seemed like balance was 2 and 2? did i just do the math wrong?

I've only ever used Vampirism, but yeah, the basic value is 2 for specialized runes and 1/1 for Balance ones.

Apparently they do scale up now, so eventually a Balance rune would indeed give 2/2.

When you beat the game and start a new game +, the balance goes up to 2 and 2, at NG+2, Balance gives 3 and 3, and Vamp and Siphon both give 4 per rune

So eventually balance will end up being the best? (4 HP + 4 MP vs 6 of either?)

If I remember correctly, the way it was originally explained to me, Vampirism and Siphon always give double what a Balance rune would give. It would be silly if they didn't scale as quickly...

But again, as I haven't played much since scaling was introduced, I haven't tested it myself.

I thought that the scaling was Vamp/Syph went up by 2 per NG+, and Balance went up by 1/1 per NG+. So when Balance is giving 5/5 a kill, Vamp/Syph are giving 10 a kill.

So if you stack 5 Balance when a single point healing for 5 HP and MP, that is 25 HP and MP per kill, but 5 Vampirism would be healing 50 HP a kill, and 5 Syphon healing 50 MP.

If you want to make use of Balance, you probly want to mix in Vampirism anyway. Most classes can get good benefit from the MP restoration(Spellsword and Lich, due to their gimicks, can't) but the HP is, well, vital to survival.
