It's the same chance as the Life on Hit proc. Here's the proc table:

Ok, ty :) However, I would like to add that some of that data is out of date. They removed proc chance on jagged spikes, and they lowered it on gas grenades

Good point. You can also check the Tank DH Guide:

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6712881277

That lists the following resource with an addendum for the out-of-date skill procs:

LoH skill discrepancies:
Caltrops:Jagged Spikes 0%
Grenades:Gas Grenades 33% on impact, 16% per tick
Chakram:Shuriken Cloud 12.5%

Ive tested rapid fire-high velocity with night stalker and it, by far, works the best in terms of proccing the disc. regen. It actually looked like my disc. was going up in tiny chunks. Only if i was more tanky and had LOH, I could probably stay in one spot and keep rapid firing and using preparation-punishment for perma rapid fire. I also wasnt using my legacy nat's set bonus to make sure the disc. regen was coming from night stalker.

Dude, what makes u think nightstalker chance is the same as loh lol. If u read the tooltip carefully it has critical hits have a CHANCE to restore 1 disc. Even in the event of a critical hit theres only a chance.

I'll admit I haven't seen any official post from Blizzard that explains the Nightstalker proc rate, but I am merely reiterating what I've read in other posts. The reason the tooltip says it has a "chance" to restore 1 disc is that each skill only has a chance to proc, so if you crit whether that skill gives discipline depends on the skill's proc chance. I use Cinder Arrow which has a high proc coefficient, and I can tell you that Nightstalker procs quite often, so I'm inclined to believe others that the "chance" is indeed the skill proc rate.

with multishot a crit will crit all. In the baston keep or arreat spiders i see crits with 8-15 hits. I crit often since i think my crit chance is at 46%

this passive works very well with rapid fire. on one of my runs i tried bombardment (AOE crit) with sharpshooter/nightstalker passives and i rarely ran out of discipline.

The stat is fuzzy at best. And I agree, its barely useful. Is it a 1 % chance, a 20% chance, or a 1 in 100th% chance? What is it. Blue, please explain.

I don't know what the % is but it does work. maybe it's because i have high crit chance. i can perma gloom against mp10 ubers and if i add vengeance with nightstalker i can pretty much perma vault too on low MPs. btw i have 30 disc

it's not because you only have 10% crit chance.

This is a bit of a thread necro, but Korba did some testing last month and his experiments suggest that the chance is indeed the skill proc rate:

To get adequate returns from Nightstalker, you must have a decent crit chance and you should use skills with reasonable proc rates. You will not gain discipline from skills that don't crit or proc such as Caltrops Jagged Spikes, Sentry, or pets.

I think that a lot, if not the vast majority, of higher end DH would disagree with that statement.
