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)

Buff?[edit]

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). 145.94.74.23 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)
