Notes Edit

  • Because Drain Life deals damage and heals, it receives a 50% penalty from +damage gear. The total bonus is then distributed amongst the five ticks of the spell. For example - if you have +100 spell damage, each tick of Drain Life will transfer +10 HP from the target ((100*0.5) / 5).
  • Drain Life combined with [Life Tap] can allow a Warlock to act as a tank.

Patch changes Edit
