    Malice Runeword Question

    I searched the forums, but didna find any thread that answered it directly, so here it is... :p

    On Malice, the stats say Drain Life -5 ... What exactly does this mean?

    I'm thinking of putting it on a big nasty sword for my barb merc (he currently has a crappy magic one with its only redeeming feature being 6% life steal, and I haven't found anything better yet :( )

    But the Drain Life -5 is making me hesitate as I'm not sure what it does...

    :scratch:

    It has no effect on mercs.

    Other than that it's the other side of the Replenish Life effect.

    Malice will not work really nice for higher mercs... Honor of King's Grace would be better and also pretty cheap choices. (Both have 7% Life leech from Amn)

    Ah, I had a feeling it was something like that... Good to know it doesn't work on mercs tho. :D

    Ya, I have Honour written down on the top of my RuneWords "To-Get" List, but yet to find an Amn or a Sol (I'm only a lvl 34 sorc in East HCL still in norm act V :p ), so I fig in the meantime Malice should do in a pinch. ;)

    Cheers, Eisirt! :)

    You're welcome....

    Unfortunately I am on Europe SC Non-ladder.... ;-)

    Otherwise the Sol and Amn would have been piece of cake.


    GL.


    Other option would be a nice gambled rare weapon for the merc... I've had occasions where I got very lucky. (Low lvl req, Good dam and Life Leech)
