    Hi all

    just returned after a few years away.....

    quick question regarding the Summon Familiar - Vampire Bat:

    "All melee damage it does will heal the caster for an equal amount"

    does this work for PVP? so if i am an archer, shooting at my enemy, for 30, 40 etc.. all of this gets back to my health?

    i think its any damage the BAT does. witch would be like 2 or 3 maybe a little more.
    in pvp i am not sure, prob get killed pretty easy and i wouldnt think that would be a reliable source of healing in any situation pvm or pvp.

    If you're going to use a familiar with a necro, I'd recommend using the wolf.

    Soulstone taming onto your character and tame/train/bond a Bake Kitsune. You can control a bake when you have the wolf summoned. Just be sure to not attempt to command the bake if your wolf dies.

    Other than that, I don't really think there is any useful summon for regular PvP besides the wisp that gives you back mana.

    The bat was nerfed out of use completely. There was a time where players would set up the bat at a safe location beating on an alt then head out to the field for some pvp and get massive HPR sort of thing. Now it seems to not attack anything at all!
