    A lower focus transfer rate is better than a higher one. It means you are using less focus. It's meant to be a positive not a negative. You shouldn't be gaining less HP as a result. Is that what you are seeing?

    What I am seeing when I use Chaos Shield is (Currently +1.7, previously was +1.8) Focus transfer rate. The in game effect of this was that when I used up focus, I was healing for X*1.8, now X*1.7, X being the focus used on the spell. I`m talking about the effects from one of the 13 possible outcomes from Chaos Shield, not the Focus Cost of the glyph.

    Right, you are talking about one of the random effects you can get from this shield: Focus Transfer Rate. Not the cost of the glyph. We're on the same page there.
    Focus transfer ratio is not considered to be 'good' so you want it lower, not higher. You want to spend less for the desired effect. The problem is probably because this is green, and it shouldn't be. It should be in red text, and we do have a bug open for that.
    Same with Torpid Torment, and Chaotic Feedback - And Shield of Air - lower this number is, the better :)

    IGNORE THIS ! I just realized something was weird on my end, but now I just realized that the effect acts as Shield of air, so you were right, its better to be lower! SORRY Lexie!
