A Life Booster is a nebula booster which, similarly to other such boosters, grants an eight second buff. When the player approaches within approximately 5 blocks of the floating booster, it will approach the player similarly to a mana star, and is consumed upon collection. If the player already has the buff granted by the Life booster, It will stack, twice if needed. This is dropped approximately one five times when any enemy is struck directly by any weapon, including minions, but excluding many melee projectiles, and the player dealing damage is wearing full Nebula armor.
The Life Nebula buff increases the player's life regeneration by 5 per second per stack, with a maximum of 15 life per second at 3 stacks.
- These are the endgame mage's means of healing. Most direct healing is blocked by the Moon Bite debuff, inflicted by the Moon Lord, but since this does not provide healing, but incredible regeneration, These can be fully utilized against any enemy.
