Short Questions Thread

@SirTwiddle wrote: How does "% Life Stolen Per Hit" work? Is it a % of the mobs health being taken or a % of my health being returned? I've only got 6% at the moment and am not seeing a big return. Just wanted to understand the mechanic before I started tinkering with it.

Also, "Life When Struck By An Enemy" isn't making sense. What is considered being "Struck"?
Life on leech is reduced by a factor depending on your difficulty (to account for massively scaling player damage). The factor is 4 on hatred, 13.333 on terror and 65 on destruction. Source: LFAQ
In order to make the most of leech you're going to have to focus on both your physical damage and leech (see: jewelcrafting).

"Life When Struck" only works for melee hits, while "Damage reduced by" works for all hits.

Thank you very much. I read what was in the LFAQ but there is no formula. I was looking for something like the Block formula, "Chance to Block = (Block% * (Dexterity - 16))/(Character_Level * 2)". This would clear up all my questions about it as it would explain exactly what factors into leech. I'm going to read the the documentation and see if I can find it.

I'm new to D2 and Median XL is my first experience with the series. Very fun but very technical. lol

Can anyone suggest a decent build to get the CFM upgrade (kill both avatars in 30 seconds). After searching the topic, it suggested summoner necro, but the topic was quite old. I currentley have an UHC, caster druid, a tantrum barb, and wwsin. Any respec builds for these chars able to do it? Any tips would be much welcomed.

This upgrade is not about the build, but strategy… Namely: “Divide and Conquer!”  Cool 
Always try to detach the “Shoulder blades fella” from others… Or, an event with a single faithful Edyrem standing by the King is much easier too…
There are many ways of doing this: In-and-Out dance at the Jail entrance, using back of the Cathedral, Catacomb’s entrance dance, or even by a mad fight all over the Jail (my favourite  Very Happy )…
One more thing to remember is that Edyrems you’ll summon won’t trigger them Angels too often due to their avoid… Therefore, to speed things up, it is better to mix them with some other (easy to hit by the King) summons…
All you need with this strategy is something to dispose of Angels pretty quickly…  Thumbs Up

I did it with necro summoner/totem hybrid, several times.
Rhatmas chosen really helps for uh caster.

thoughts on leathdhiabhala bow? (the one with ctc ice lance on strike) Is it good? bad? Worth making a char for it? Does Ice Lance actually do reasonable damage so I can farm for shrines for -cold resis crafts and such

It's a good bow. You can use it with coldhunger helm (also has ctc ice lance) and hanabigami quiver.
