For the game mechanic, see Gain on hit.

Life Gain on Hit is a support gem. For every hit made using an attack supported by this gem, you will gain the listed amount of life instantly. The life gain is applied for every hit, not every attack - an arrow that pierces three enemies will cause the attacker to gain life for each of the three enemies that is hit.

The effect of this gem will stack with other sources of life gain on hit.
