We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

Description[edit | edit source]

Life Tap is a very useful skill. It provides an immense 50% life leech, which can make most of your minions nigh unkillable while being a great aid to melee characters in your party. A well-geared Summonmancer probably won't be using the skill very often on his own, as his skeletons will be able to survive, making either Amplify Damage or Decrepify better options.

Lore[edit | edit source]

This skill allows the Necromancer to literally suck the life from his victims. The Necromancer is able to reach into the wellspring of mortality and siphon off its essence, consuming it to replace his own. Attacking a cursed soul gives you health.[1]
