    life tap on elemental dmg?

    Sorry for dumb question...

    does life tap work on magic / elemental damage?

    assuming crushing blow is still phy damage and it's counted towards life tap life return?

    Re: life tap on elemental dmg?

    Lifetap doesn't work with magic/elemental damage, physical damage from anything but a weapon and not with CB as well, even though the latter is physical damage (and subject to physical resistance or immunity). However, weapons don't deal a CB instead of regular damage, but in addition to it.

    another dumb question

    does anyone know if there is a cap on things like crushing blow? can a character get 100% crushing blow?

    Yes, 100% is possible. More than that doesn't make sense, of course.

    cb higher 100% is possible.dont know if its useful or useless but i cant say that doensn't make sense. for me doesn't make sense try to have a lot of cb and must reduced some other useful things.as for cb, there are some penalties against some kinds of monsters, in pvp, when u use ranged atack etc. so in some cases it can make sense for me have cb higher than 100% ;)

    There are no penalties against the chance to deal CBs, but you deal a lower fraction of life versus bosses, in PvP or with missile weapons.

    Re: life tap on elemental dmg?

    well i currently have 50% crushing blow with gore rider boots and guillaumes face helmet

    it's workin pretty good. i was hoping at some point to get the runes to make a Destruction sword. Cause it looks very fun and also has some more CB. good to hear it's not capped at 50% or something

    You don't really need more than 50% tho.

    No you can only leech with physical damage. Thats a very easy question to answer.
