    % Stolen Per Hit

    Hi, I am just asking for some conformation on my query please. I tired searching but to no avail. When an item has a percentage stolen per hit, ie 5% mana stolen per hit, does that only happen when a physical hit happens from a weapon? I am assuming it doesn't happen if you use a sorceress magic attack?

    Cheers for your help!

    Correct.

    Someone will be around shortly to tell you the penalties in nightmare and hell. I believe hell is 25% but I could be wrong.

    According to Arreat, life/mana stolen is cut 1/2 in Nightmare and 2/3 in Hell.

    On top of that, all monsters have a "drain effectiveness" than also cuts life/mana steal. Mephisto in NM and Hell has a drain effectiveness of 0, making him unleachable. Life tap ignores the drain effectiveness property.

    I should probably know this but I assume there is a table somewhere that details this property per monster type?

    I think it also only works for base physical damage per swing. Otherwise, a character doing 10,000 damage per hit, leeching 5%, would get 500 health back from a monster with 100% drain effectiveness.

    and on top of all the above, monster physical resists also effect leech, so a 50% phys resist hell demon, will cut your leech in half.

    Re: % Stolen Per Hit

    No, it works for real physical damage done. (So you have to consider monster damage resistance as it was said and also monster current life. Say you have monster with 1K life left and you do 10K damage. In the end you'll do only 1K physical damage and you will drain only 5% from 1K = 50 (if the drain effectivness is 100). In hell the final leeched amount is divided by 3 (In NM by 2)

    Yes, but the normal pvp damage penalties apply, so you won't get much leech back.
