Diablo® III

Vampiric attacks work on NPCs

Boss packs with the vampiric affix can regain health from storyline followers like Leah. The followers cannot be targeted, but they can be hit by other abilities.

For example: if the boss has the plauged affix and Leah stands in the plauged area, the boss will regain hp.

As these NPCs cannot be killed, the bosses quickly regain lots of health indefinitely, and there is no reliable way to position your followers so this doesn't happen.

Significant problem. Encountered a Plagued Vampiric boss in the Silver Spire, Nightmare difficulty. If I dismiss my Hireling, I can get him down to about 50% at times. However, there's no reliable way to keep Tyrael out of his plague puddles. A few moments erases all progress. DPS output is about 2500.
