|An unerringly vampiric blade which gorges itself on drained life force every time it strikes.|
+8 demon blade
Vampiric brand effect, activated on every hit
Leech, like any 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. You may wish to switch to something more damaging if you run into a particularly nasty undead enemy; given this weapon's brand, doing so often may cause problems (because of the high hunger cost).
