    Nerfed leeching in 1.10

    I'm still playing my frenzybarb in 1.09, doing some more MF-runs before upgrading to 1.10. I have heard that Blizzard has nerfed leeching quite much in the new patch.

    How exactly does leech work in 1.10, and what is your experience so far?

    Afaik the penaltys are that the amount of leech you have is only 1/2 efficient in NM, and 1/3 in Hell..

    But they likewise gave enemies a new leech resistance score, so I've been told, which makes some of them rather resistant (or totally immune, in the case of some bosses) to leech. It's also supposedly nerfed down to 1% in pvp now.

    In pvp it isn´t nerfed to 10%, but it is nerfed in the meaning that you will leech according to your difficulty and according to the actual dmg received by your opponent (you may be doing 6k phys dmg, but if your opponent has 50% dr you will leech like you where hitting 500 dmg for example :s)

    I thought the pvp leech penalty was 1/5?

    Pvp leech is pretty much useless, not sure on the exact amount it was reduced, I hear down to 1% alot though.

    Ppl say to 1% because if for example you take your old .09 barb with about 40-50% LL and take it to duel in hell against an opponent with full(50%) dmg reduced it will leech like if it where doing:
    dmg* (1/6=PvP penalty) * (1/2=50%DR)*(1/4=Hell diff leeching penalty)= dmg * 1/48
    with 40-50% LL you will see like 1% life leech because of that (40/48= 0.833333%; 50/48=1.04166666%) .
