How did I die?
Single tank w/ BL and VA

The minus VA is you losing life.

Your VA is too small.

AdminTitan May 11 2010 1:23 PM EDT

VA and damage works funny with very low numbers. Just don't train it until you're a little bigger.

Demigod May 11 2010 1:42 PM EDT

It's a common mistake. Just untain VA for now. To ease the pain, I just lent you a Halidon Familiar that should give you a boost.

AdminShade May 11 2010 4:43 PM EDT

Remove the Vampiric Aura, it's trained too low which makes you lose health instead of gaining it.

Ankou May 11 2010 5:28 PM EDT

So at some point in the future, my VA should be [x], not [-x]?
What dictates this change from hurting to healing? MPR? A stat? Level of VA?

wiki link below to va section, the first 3 or 4 bullets should address your issue.
