Which Barbarian ability and rune triggers Life on Hit (LoH) and for how much?

Rewording the initial question from a Sidearm only question to all the barbarian abilities

Is there an overview that tells me which Barbarian ability profits from Life on Hit and if it is affected by diminishing returns (let’s say if a Sidearm hit only heals partially what a normal hit does – or nothing at all)?

  • Do different weapon types have different reach?
  • How many characters can I have and do they expire?
  • Why do people use Echoing Fury as offhand?
  • Does Diamond Skin scale?
  • At what point do items that alter specific skills start appearing?
  • Is there a way to lock my skills?
  • What determines the quality of loot in horadric caches?
  • When can I get Lyndon's conversations for 'To Catch A Thief' achievement?
  • How does aggro work in Diablo III?
  • Stats of already possesed items changed in patch
  • How can I click to walk to a mob, instead of attacking it?
  • How can I check the total played time of a character?

    Kripp does explain it well but he does not have all the modifiers listed.

    Here is a complete listing compiled by JarthMarder


    There are modifiers for life on hit. I think each hit of Cleave will only give around 75% of your life on hit (although you’re likely to be hitting more than 1 mob, so you can get life back from each mob you hit). Frenzy is 100% of your life on hit, but I bet the sidearm axes don’t get the full amount. Kripparrian has an excellent video on it on youtube here

    Each hit is individual. Also, the Life on Hit (I believe) all stacks and counts for all hits regardless of what weapon is doing the hitting.
    Sounds great for the changed monk skill-nerf.

    I do not believe there is a diminishing return

    You can also enable the setting to see the damage numbers fly in your options to see for yourself (as well as heals)
