Vampirism is a power skill which transforms all of the player's entire current health and a portion of their missing health into recovery. This functions as a risk/reward system of regaining health if it is already low.


  • Special Effects:
    • If the player deals no damage during the rally effect, they will be left at 1 health.
    • This is subject to the Recovery mutation.
  • Tags: NoDamage, Heal
  • Legendary Version: Soul-Eater
  • Forced Affix: Run Speed on Use
    • "Increases movement speed for 10 seconds."


  • Getting hit immediately after using Vampirism will immediately kill the player.
  • Since rally health drains at a high rate, it is only recommended to use Vampirism when it is certain that more than the initial health can be regained.
    • The Recovery Mutation Icon.png Recovery mutation can greatly assist with this skill as it triples the delay before rally health begins to drain and also slows down the drain rate.


  • 0.1: Introduced.
  • 0.4: Now also works with ranged weapons.
  • 1.4: Scaling changed from Skill Hp.png Tactics/ Survival to Str Hp.png Brutality/ Survival instead.
  • 1.9: Reworked Vampirism.
    • No longer an area of effect skill that causes nearby enemies to bleed and drop healing items when killed.
    • No longer requires a health flask or a level change to use again. Has a normal cooldown instead.
    • Now transform remaining health plus a portion of missing health into recovery.
