Skill functions and interactions

  • Contagion: When an enemy affected by both Contagion Contagion and Essence Drain Essence Drain dies, the resulting Contagion Contagion proc will spread the remaining duration of both effects to nearby enemies.
  • Regeneration: The amount of life regenerated from the damage over time caused by Essence Drain Essence Drain is dependent solely on the tooltip damage over time, and not on the actual damage dealt to the enemy. Essence drain will increase the players life regeneration by 0.05 * tooltip DoT per enemy affected. This means that using methods to increase the damage an enemy receives such as Despair DespairWither Wither, or the Occultist Void Beacon notable will not change the amount of regeneration provided by Essence Drain Essence Drain.
  • Traps and Mines: Essence Drain Essence Drain can not be supported by Trap Trap Support and Blastchain Mine Support.
  • Modifiers to Spell Damage apply to this skill’s Damage Over Time Effect: Modifiers to spell damage only affect the damage over time effect of Essence Drain Essence Drain granted by the gem and do not affect other sources of damage over time which may be applied by the skill, such as poison or Decay Decay Support.
