    NM & H Meph

    i've noticed that you cannot leech life nor mana from NM & H Meph, which by the way is annoying!
    is it a well-known fact (then stoopid me for now knowing it) or does it only happen to me?

    thanx

    Every monster has a "leech effectiveness" --- and for some monsters it's 0. Mephisto is one of them, but not the only one.

    A life-tap curse, which is available as charges on wands, can change this.

    Its not just you. Boss' in 1.10 are unleechable. The only way around this is using Lifetap.

    is there any list with that kind of monsters?
    or maybe a chart that lists leeching effectiveness?

    thanx

    Arreat Summit has it in their monster tables, but as usual --- I have no way of telling whether their values are always, mostly, hardly or never correct.

    In addition to Mephisto, people usually know that Skeleton-type monsters can't be leeched. Not sure about ghosts; leeching isn't an issue for me.

    i beg to differ
    not ALL bosses in 1.10 are unleechable
    every Normal boss can be leeched
    even NM bosses are leechable, except Meph...
    regarding Hell...i dunno

    again, i dont agree
    Dried Corpses are undead and they are very leechable
    AFAIK, skeletons are unleechable
    also hell swarms
    ghosts in normal can be leeched, not sure about NM and H

    How can you disagree to something you don't know about?

    Regarding the Undead - I used the term 'as far as I know'. I am not stating a fact here, just my thoughts, so yes, I could be wrong, which I obviously am.

    Regarding Act bosses, as far as I am aware, all Hell bosses are unleechable.

    edit: It's not considered good form to double post.

    well, im not exactly a newb, but im new to the forums
    so i can disagree on something im 100% sure of: that is all normal and nm bosses are leechable except nm meph (that is of course without using life tap, a trick i didnt know, thanx guys for the ideea)

    so thanx again for all your help, and please dont get that mad at me, im not here to play smart, just to understand things im not familiar with.
