The invigorating gemstone's rank 25 effect is to heal the player when a control-impairing effect hits. Does this heal go before or after taking damage from said effect?


  • An elite pack has the frozen attribute.
  • I stand in the area where frozen is going to hit while having this gem equipped and at rank 25
  • The frozen goes off
  • Do I get damage here and heal 20% of my life after?
  • Or do I heal 20% of my life here and get damage from the frozen blast after?

I'm asking because I play hardcore, so things like this can really matter.


First of all, frozen doesn't count. At least it didn't when the gem first came out. I haven't used it since.

Second, it occurs AFTER the damage is taken.
