Signet of Capture:


  • This skill does not reduce the effect of Health Stealing skills such as Vampiric Gaze and Vampiric Touch, nor health lost from sacrificial skills, such as Blood of the Master or Verata's Aura.
  • Stacks nicely with Life Bond and Life Barrier as well. As Dark Bond is recast often, the damage reduction is generally applied after that of Life Bond/Life Barrier's.
  • Even with 0 Blood Magic, this is a useful skill for a Necromancer with minions to use since it lasts longer than the recharge time (and can thus be kept up indefinitely)
