Max HP decreases as rank up?Follow

I don't know if anyone else experience the same but this is wired. I was LV 13 gladiator, physical level at 19. When I leveled to rank 14 I found my maximum HP decreased from 1016 to 1001, MP decreased too but can't remember how much. At first I thought this might be the damaged gears, so I went back to limsa, repair everything including accessories (although they don't have bonus on HP) but HP remains the same.

I hope it's not some stupid noob question, apologies if it is.

There are several topics about this and so far, no I don't think we've found out why it happens. It might be a bug or bad coding in how Vitality scales your HP per level/rank if I had to make a guess.

It doesn't seem to be a result of broken gear or being above/below the optimal rank for your gear since changing your gear around still shows the same HP reduction.

The problem is that as far as I can tell your rank AND your physical level can alter how the stats work. I too usually see my HP go down when I level. Last night I keep adding vit untill I saw NO change in HP, meaning I had one stat point beyond the cap. When I dinged 21 my HP went UP for the first time every after a level up. Also it scales differenty past a certain rank. I dont remember exactly how but it was not linear. Like 1-10 it was one thing, t 11-20 something different then a change again at 21.

as you level up it takes more of a stat to keep the number where it is - takes even more points to get it to go up.

other may see their numbers rise as they get closer to their physical level and can absorb a higher % of those points. It may also rise as you level up closer to the level of your gear.
