You embody wellness! You also receive an instant Health increase, which has no downsides (except it takes slightly longer to inflict Nerd Rage! on a set of foes). If you need extra Health, this is a must-take perk.Fallout 4 Vault Dweller's Survival Guide description

Life Giver is an Endurance perk in Fallout 4.


Taking ranks of this perk increases max HP. Higher ranks grant additional HP increases and the ability to slowly regenerate lost health.


Rank Requirements Description Form ID
1 END 3 You embody wellness! Instantly gain +20 maximum Health. 0004A0CF
2 END 3, LVL 8 You instantly gain another +20 maximum Health. 001D2465
3 END 3, LVL 20 You instantly gain another +20 maximum Health, and slowly regenerate lost Health. 001D2467


  • Ranks 1 and 2 and part of rank 3 have their best value in early game stages. The math is such that, once one reaches Level 32, it's better to spend the perk points on Endurance itself than in getting ranks in this perk. Conversely, the benefits of +20 HP early game can be considerable.
  • The health regeneration gained from rank 3 translates to 0.5% HP regained per second. However, HP is not regenerated while in combat (i.e. when enemies are nearby). That said, the health regeneration is fast enough, out of combat, to be a real convenience even at higher levels.
