    Has anyone else noticed that stat leeching weapons arent being that effective anymore in PVP? Have they put a patch in where you don't leech anymore?

    The leeches were nerfed awhile ago. A long while.

    The only leech commonly used in PvP to my knowledge is mana. In fact, some people refer to the other two as "the PvM leeches."

    BTW, "Leech" properties NEVER actually LEECHED from the target being hit. EVER. The devs has so stated repeatedly.

    They just convert part of the damage done to a refill of the "leeched" property for the weapon user.

    If you're using a stamina leech weapon with the intent of lowering your opponent's stamina more than what just their damage taken does, you're wasting your time.

    Oh i know that it never leeched from the opponent i was just saying I heard rumors and have noticed that my mana leech dosnt seem to do anything at all. My mana only seems to raise normally as it does through MR, was just wondering if anyone else had heard of these rumor rumblings and noticed.
     
  6. If I only had a gold or two for every rumor that was started in UO. They are easy to spread and have little meaning. As Galen said, the leeches have been that way for a long long time.

    Mana leech has a chance to convert 40% of the damage into mana. Since PvP is theoretically capped at 35 damage, that will give you 12 mana return. If you have a weapon with 50% mana leech, that gives you an average of 6 mana leech per hit... not a lot when you as spamming spells and using specials. This is normal and works as intended for PvP.

    But wraithform leeches mana for sure... Atleast last time I mage dueled someone who was in wraithform I was out of mana all the freaking time.
