For 1.1, your calculation on magicka regen is off because it forgets the standard 100% that every individual has.

The formula given is Total regen/sec = [Maximum Magicka]*[regen rate value/100]*[magicka regen boost%/100]

But it should be [Maximum Magicka]*[regen rate value/100]*[(magicka regen boost%+100)/100]. This takes into account standard regen. Otherwise, if you have no regen boosts, your formula gives an output of 0/sec.

That said, it also makes a full magicka regen build far more attractive since at 500 magicka, your total regen in combat is 500*.1*(660/100) = 33/sec without necromage (15 seconds to refill bar).

With necromage (and not accounting for any possible boosts to magicka total based on equipment), total regen in combat is 500*.1*(798/100) = 39.9/sec (12.5 seconds to refill bar).

These numbers are (obviously) higher if using the ring of erudite instead.

You are both correct and incorrect.

The standard calculation, factoring in no regen, is [max magicka]*[regen rate value/100]. For non Erudite calculations it is Max magicka * .01.

If you calculate magicka regen increases then my formula is correct. It is only incorrect if you have no regen boosts. Your calculations of [Maximum Magicka]*[**regen rate value/100**]*[(magicka regen boost%+100)/100 is adding 100% to the regen boost with no source as you are already factoring in base regen rate (noted in bold).

With 500 magicka and a regen build you are regenerating 5 points/sec. WIth the build you multiply it by 560% or 5.6 which equals 28 pts/second. Your calculation adds an erroneous extra 100 to the magicka regen.

First of all, congratulations with the little one.

Assuming 500 magicka and 1% combat regen rate with 0 additional regen under my formula, you should be 5/second. (500*.1*100/100)=5.

Assuming 500 magicka and 1% combat regen with 100% regen (Morokei), you should be at 10/second (500*.1*(100+100)/100)=(5*(200)/100)=10 or 2%/sec

Assuming 500 magicka and 1% combat regen with 200% regen (Morokei + Archmage robe), you should be at 15/second (500*.1*(200+100)/100)=(5*(300/100))=15 or 3%/sec

Assuming 500 magicka and 1% combat regen with 300% regen, you should be at 20/second (500*.1*(300+100)/100)=20 or 4%/sec

Each 100% increase should be adding 5 magicka per second and increase overall magicka regen by 1%/second.

Thus a 560% increase from base regen should make overall magicka regeneration 6.6%/second.

Under your formula, a 100% regen increase (Morokei only) would be 500*.1*100/100 = 5. But this number is incorrect. This formula also doesn't take into account negative regen from the Atronach stone or vampirism. Under your formula, the Atronach stone by itself (assuming a floor value of 0, since we know regen doesn't naturally decrease your magicka) would mean that a character would not be regenerating.
