Version history

Version Changes
  • No longer provides 1% less Damage taken for every 2% Life Recovery per second from Leech. Instead, it now provides 2% additional Physical Damage Reduction for every 3% Life Recovery per second from Leech.
  • Strength of Blood's damage reduction no longer scales with modifiers to life recovery rate.
  • Updated the Strength of Blood Keystone Passive description to clarify that it does not affect Life Recovery from Instant Leech.
  • Updated the Strength of Blood Keystone description to be more accurate. Now states 'Life Recovery from Leech is not applied' instead of 'Recovery from Life Leech is not applied'. This is purely a description change.
  • Introduced to the game.
