    Can You Leech With Magic Arrows?

    Or, more specifically...

    If I give my Act 1 merc a Witchwild String, do I want to put Amns in it? There's that mod, "Fires Magic Arrows [Level 20]", so would it not leech because it's not a physical attack?

    I know it's a nub question. Thanks in advance. :)

    I think there is a physical component in Magic Arrow. But, I'm not sure.

    That site is a bit outdated,

    The magic arrow fires a "normal arrow" but adds a damage modifier to it. Also in 1.10 it changes part of the damage to magic damage. Since you only recieve mana and life leech from physical damage dealt a higher magic arrow will deal more damage but you will recieve less leeching from it because a percentage is turned to magic damage that can not be leeched.

    In short magic arrow allows leeching but only from the physical damage associatied with the bow and char its fired from.

    I know that ALL these sites are autdate :(. In this case though the relevant info was good enough. Nevertheless ity is good that you pointed it aut. These sites really can be dissguiding and people should know about it.

    At level 20, 20% of the bow's damage would be converted to magic damage. However, if you upgraded the bow (or even if it's not upgraded), it should still deal enough physical damage to leech life easily. Also keep in the mind the scaling Deadly Strike modifier.
