lifeleech doesnt work on Smite?

hi all
i am building a paladin with zeal/smite (it's kinda messed up i know )+ fana as my main resorts
and i just got a vampire gaze helm , it works really well while im using zeal, i steal tons of life at a time
but when im using smite, i can barely notice any ll, maybe none at all?
can anyone tell me why does this happen? does ll just not work on smite?

thank you very much

Smite only leeches if the monster or enemy is lifetapped

Uhhh no, when the monster has lifetap on it, any damage you cause on the monster is returned to you as life.

edit:
Ever heard of exile?

Nope, but lifetap does and it works better than lifeleech. Just buy a necro wand with the lifetap charges on it, it works great.

Lifetap (LT) works wonders. It also works on skeletons and so were you normally don't leech from.

too bad there isn't a curse called Mana Tap lol. then again it wouldn't be a huge help to pallies anyway...maybe avengers.

It could be the 15% damage taken from an enigma if you were wearing one or a gear that has +mana on it after you kill a monster.

Hi there! Think we share a common build - i.e the Smealot :p I slap on a draculs gloves as i can't afford an Exile and i do leech with smite and i use grief :D Even at lower lvls i zeal till lifetap is casted and smite for itd and this works great for bosses when i was at lower lvls and even in late hell :p Depending on your weapon you may go with dracs if you have adequate ias from gear i feel. Hope i helped
