    Just that. I've been told in the past that they don't work, but I have a friend that is convinced that they do, and I can't seem to find an answer to the question anywhere. From what I understood mana and life leech don't work in pvp, but stamina leech might, as it is handled differently from the other two leeches.

    Please set me straight... :)

    Interesting. Dunno for sure, but I can say that many PvP weapons are imbued/sold with HML, which tells me that it is a desired mod for PvP.

    They've always worked.
    However, they're less effective in PvP than they are in PvM because you're doing significantly less damage per hit in PvP.

    Are they worth having? well that depends on a lot of things, try it and see if you like it.

    I'd like to know if leeches works on Hit Area damage, or just on the main hit.

    For PvP, what Miner said.

    For area effect, no, leeches don't apply to area effect (or spell) damage.

    But it is quite useful for "catching" fleeing enemies.
    When they get hit as they're fleeing, they'll come back to attack again.
    Very helpful which you don't want to go chasing 20 different monsters fleeing in different directions.
    This effect does help leeching indirectly, but significantly.
