    does blind target from last wish cancel life tap?

    I've read conflicting things on this and was wondering if anyone knew for sure? If so I'll swap out my beastz for a lwz on my frenzy barb as I figure it'll be a better weapon for ubers...

    Yes, it's a curse. It's the exact same thing as the necro's dim vision skill.
    And howl and grim ward are the same thing as terror.
    And I think either taunt or battle cry counts as a curse too, or maybe both.
    Shrine effects are curses too.
    I don't think stun is, but you see stun so rarely (aside from shadow masters, which are rare too) that I don't know for sure.

    Precisely. HBT will cancel out the Life Tap on their minions, but the LT will remain in effect on the ubers themselves.

    Stun does not override the Lifetap, it's a seperate thing. :/

    The blind does cancel Tap though; reason why my friend switched to a Death Phase Blade. XD

    It's pretty good. I used heaven's light and grief before, but I'm settling with LW now for my uber smiter. Grief and LW are both good, but LW wins by giving the Fade, which saves me the trouble of switching between Andy and Kira. Of course, LW is the most expensive option, so if you're tight on budget, it's definitely not a must.

    yeah it's an amazing runeword, I mean it takes 6 hrs, I just don't understand why blizz would put 2 curses on it, doesn't make any sense and ruins it for me

    Details

    Hit Blinds Target and Dim Vision have the same effect.
    Howl, Grim Ward's effect, Terror and Hit Causes Monster to Flee have the same result with varying effectiveness.
    Taunt is a cry that affects white-named monsters like a curse, and the only thing which can decrease that enemy's attack rating (champs and higher are immune).
    Battle Cry is a cry which affects anyone like a curse, and is the only curse-like effect a possessed monster can have because it's non-targetted.
    Stun, Warcry, Smite, Maul and Mind Blast prohibit non-act unique monsters from executing certain actions, like attacking, and can put any non-act unique enemy into hit recovery on successive successful attacks.
