I am using a Elf Swordmage at the moment, and have given him a feat called

Rose King's Shield

Prerequisite: Avenger or Swordmage, proficiency with longsword

Benefit: You gain a +2 feat bonus to Endurance checks. Once per turn when you hit an enemy with an attack power associated with this feat while using a longsword, you gain 5 temporary hit points. If you ended your turn more than 2 squares away from where you started, you instead gain 10 temporary hit points.

Associated Powers: Booming Blade, Focused Fury

My question is, do these temp hit points stack during an encounter? i.e. if you hit someone with that associated power several times.


1 Answer 1


No. Temporary hit points do not stack. You take the higher of the number of THP you have left and the number granted to you.

From the compendium:

If you get temporary hit points and already have some, use the higher value as your temporary hit point total instead of adding the values together.

  • \$\begingroup\$ yea, i was thinking that would be way to powerfull.. I dont think my dm was listening when I asked him that question he said yes.. but hes a busy guy so I'll forgive him.. Still though thats a really powerfull feat imo.. so long as your hitting your getting temp hp, sorta like a buffer. I will accept your answer once the time is up.. thanks very much.. I friken love this exchange :) \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @C.Johns yes a lot of the feat support for At-wills is quite good. \$\endgroup\$
