    Calculating Life Tap

    If I do 400 average physical damage and have Life Tap, how much life would I gain per hit assuming a 33% physical resistance in Hell mode?

    400 * 0.67 = 268

    => 268 * 0.5 = 134

    Ok, that's what I was thinking. Thanks for the verification.

    Yep, there's no difficulty or drain effectiveness penalty like for normal leech so the only thing reducing it will be physical res.

    Life and mana leech use the same formulas.
    Lets just say it doesnt work in pvp (it does, but there is a bug in formula which cuts leech a lot).

    In PvM, it works only 50% in NM and 33% in Hell. After that, every target has its own "drain effectiveness" (kind of drain resistance, uber mephisto has 0 so you cant drain from it).
    So assuming you have 10% life leech and hit a target with 10% drain effectiveness, 10000 dealt damage in Hell will give you back 10000*(.10)*(.33)*(.10)=33 life.

    Life tap isnt leech actually, it just returns life back as said. Also this is the only good "leech" method in PvP.
