Diablo® III

Life steal question Archon/Hydra.

Hey, I was thinking about gearing more into life steal, I was testing out Blood Weapon to see how useful it would be before getting gear with it, and it seamed to me like a lot of skill weren't affected by it. Hydra was giving no life, Damage done while in Archon was giving no life. Arcane orb was giving what I would expect.

If life steal is ignored while in Archon that makes it pretty worthless to me. Is it only blood weapon that does this? or does Archon/Hydra just not heal?

ok so with a little more tests, both the archons melee ability and archon explosion do life steal. The beam still does nothing for me

Life steal gets nerfed (DR'd) HARD on Inferno.

yes but 20% of 2% 190k is still a lot of health.

It just suprises me that archon beam doesn't steal any life
