Leech Icon Lifesteal is an alternative form of Heal Ally Icon Healing and a typical ability of Dark Dark Heroes. The healing is based on the damage dealt. This means that the more damage the hero deals, the more hit points they get back.

Heroes who deal a lot of damage benefit most from Leech Icon Lifesteal. The obvious disadvantage of Leech Icon Lifesteal is, of course, that no healing is possible if the hero cannot deal damage. Reasons can be shields like Invincibility Icon Invincibility on the target, or the hero is Diseased Icon Diseased or not able to attack at all. For example if he or she is Frozen Icon Frozen.

The effect of Leech Icon Lifesteal is easy to recognize by a "swarm of green +", which floats back from the hit enemy to the attacker.

Rune Vampiric Runes can also give heroes who do not have a natural Leech Icon Lifesteal trait this effect. These Runes return up to 10% of the damage caused to the wearer of the rune as hit points with every hit. The percentage values of several Runes and natural Leech Icon Lifesteal stacks; in other words, the percentage values are added together.

Leech Icon Lifesteal and Rune Vampiric Runes do not work for Construct heroes that have the Construct Icon Construct trait but work for Living Stone Icon Living Stone heroes, like Stonefist token 0 Stone Fist.
