Why use his over vampiric? Raptaz 14:20, 6 December 2007 (UTC)

No reason. -AyaStowar
I guess if you have Death Magic points instead of Blood. - Elder Angelus 15:16, 6 May 2008 (UTC)


Increase damage, decrease energy cost, or completely change functionality. This skill is worse than Flare with the increased energy cost, recharge, and Touch range. Maybe have it apply a condition like Poison or Disease? Or both? --Srakin 21:31, 12 August 2008 (UTC)

Agreed^^ I never saw anyone using this skill. I'm even currently trying a Blood/Death Magic Contagion build, even in this case where you are going in touch range it's useless... —ZerphatalkThe Improver 06:09, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
Isn't the damage armor ignoring? In that case, it's not worse than Flare damagewise (but it is in other aspects). 07:01, 24 February 2009 (UTC)
I think it should be changed into a Desperation Blow of sorts for Death Magic. That is, deals some amount of damage (maybe change to shadow to balance?) and applies Weakness, Disease, or Poison to the foe (33% for each). These conditions are staple Necromancer conditions, and giving it this new mechanic would set it apart from Touch of Agony and Vampiric Touch. ~ marcdarc 16:00, 29 May 2009 (UTC)
Not a bad idea, that last one. At the moment this is a totally worthless skill, period. If some asinine Necro tries to use it on me I laugh, then I hit them over the head with Eviscerate while the silly bugger is standing right next to me. =P Astralphoenix777 23:26, 16 August 2009 (UTC)
