Default Hypergen vs Overgen

I've been told that hypergen is better than overgen. Why is that?

in terms of percent, doubling regeneration means increasing health regeneration by 100%, so the hypergen's 150% is still superior.

The Overgen description is misleading. Thought it was multiplicative. Overgen 2x and hypergen 1.5x

I had the same confusion when I was a nub. And then I was mocked for my confusion Q_Q

If you increase something by 50% that means you multiply by 1.5. If you increase by 150%, that is quite different, it means you multiply by 2.5.

Hypergen has superior regeneration, is not treated as an Aura for gem handling.
Overgen has inferior regeneration, IS treated as an Aura for gem handling.

In a nutshell, one is a guaranteed draw (with high enough gem handling) but has lower regeneration ~Overgen~ and one has a random chance to be drawn at some point during the fight regardless of your gem handling skills but has higher regeneration ~Hypergen~. That is the difference between the two gems.

Also, because Glitch knows his maths, here's a handy chart:

100% increase means you double something.
200% increase means you triple something.
300% increase means you quadruple something.

Generally, Nod math is multiplicative for similar effects that stack, except for vampiric effects, which add. That means that if you have regen from a pet (say 75%) and regen from a rune (say 50%) and regen from an aura (say 100%), you would multiply them together (1.75x1.50x2.00=5.25x or 425% regen).

As always, make sure you read ALL of the description, because things like Overgen/Hypergen act very differently as to how they are drawn based solely on the description.
