Yeah, there's a limit to overheal. I think you're right that it's 150% of base health.

At one point the game didn't have the codex. It was quite arcane XD

+1: The burning chain isn't lost if you kill targets by deathgaze.

And I just noticed I haven't even answered a question for months :P
1000 sorry. The limitless lifesteal still works, and all you need is to have at least 1 lvl of lifesteal on a gorgon, and kill a bloody monster with deathgaze. When you do that, you get maximum health out of it, even if the monster was down to 1 HP.
What Avatar described was the extreme version of it, which exploits corrosive creepers' blood.

If I managed to overlook a question again, feel free to remind me in a PM. (Oh and the continuation of my infinimuter topic is still coming, I just had a summer job that drained my energy and I couldn't motivate myself to write it. From Monday though, I'll have time again.)

In Demonic Library when you kill all the demonlords every spiked tile becomes normal, not just the 8 in the middle.
Can be useful in accessing the secret subdungeon in case you prepped Binlor, without wallbreaking glyphs, like if you found a really good altar at lvl 1 and never joined him because of this.

Avatar loses his ability to spawn monsters while enraged. It's quite unusual for a boss to lose abilities.

You lose your overhealed HP if you use a regular healing method or decrease your max HP. The former is shown on the healthbar most of the cases.

Corrosion applies to some damage types, while not to others.

How much extra damage will you get out of 1 corrosion with a bearmace wielding, whurgarble using sorcerer?
Only 2.
It deals damage for your hit, the knockback, and that's all. No bonus for manashield or burning detonation :(
It would make manashield useful if it activated corrosion too.

Here's a weird one I just discovered:

If a Sorcerer casts BURNDAYRAZ on an enemy with retaliate: fireball, his essence transit activates after the retaliation damage, rather than before it like the fireball.

When overhealed, the health is reduced to its max when you get the Blood Tith boon. I suspect that it would also happen with any other effect that reduces the max health (Dracul Punishment. I don't remember if there are any other such effects...)

I guess the same thing would happen if you converted a max HP item.
Never tried it, because it's pointless.
