Desirability

Leech, like any well-enchanted vampiric demon blade, is a very nice thing to have, though it does impact your AC and EV. Still, it must be noted that it activates more often than normal vampiric weapons do, though you will likely wish to switch to something more damaging if you run into a particularly nasty undead or demonic enemy.

History

  • 0.25 will remove Leech's AC and EV penalties and add both evocable Rage and berserkitis.
  • Prior to 0.19, Leech's AC and EV costs were only -2, and it had -2 Strength, Intelligence, and Dexterity.
  • Prior to 0.15, Leech's stat, AC and EV costs were only -1.
  • Prior to 0.14, Leech's vampiric effect was only activated on 60% of all attacks, like all other vampiric weapons.
