    Dracul's Grasp work on an Amazon? (Life Tap that is)

    Just wondering if Dracul's Grasp is worth using on a bowazon. This zon will use Strafe as well as Freeze Arrow as her main skills. Will life tap even work on her, or does it only work on melee characters?

    I looked on the skill planner for level 10 life tap, and supposedly it equals 50% of attack damage. So is this to say that if I get lucky enough to cast it on them, it will heal 50% of their damage to me....aka, if they do 300 damage it will heal me 150 health?

    Thanks for reading, hope it's not too confusing :D.

    Yes, that's correct.

    But since you're a bowazon, you shouldn't get hit at all. I'd use Atma's scarab (uniq amulet) for amp dmg instead.

    i think you got it backwards, its not like 50% pdmg reduced, on arreat summit i found that "Attacker gets Healed 50% of Attack Damage" and "Attacking a cursed soul gives you health" and there doesnt seem to be anything saying that it shouldnt work for a ranged attacker. but then again what ranged attacker needs that kind of life leech?

    Better yet a Highlord's because when the Amp gets cast on the monsters it stops you for a split second. With Highlord's you can continuously attack the monster.

    Amp helps you kill 90% of PI's in Hell, whereas DS/CS don't :xgrin:

    I believe the Life Tap skill functions the same as if you had an extra 50% life leech ie. the physical damage YOU do determines the life returned.

    Ok, I re-read the skill tree and yes I think you're right in that the amount leeched is dependent on your damage. However, at this point I'm wondering if Laying of Hands is a better choice rather than the life steal...after all it is 20%IAS, 350%ED to demons...and mega fire resist :).

    I'll have to consult the stickies for that info.
