How does the Bul Kathos's Wedding Band effect, "You drain life from enemies around you", work when you are level 70?

Does it count as Life Steal, and thus is useless or does this get around that limitation?

  1. It returns 1% of YOUR MAX LIFE per second as long as 1 mob is around you.
  2. If more than 1 mob is around you you still only gain 1% of YOUR MAX LIFE
  3. It damages all mobs around you for 0.4% of MOB'S CURRENT LIFE. Thus the damage it does to a mob gets smaller as a mob loses life.
  4. You cannot kill mobs with this effect alone, when their life gets low enough it stops doing damage.
  5. Range of it is extremely short

Which makes me think it's life regen and not life steal. Others in this thread corroborate these numbers and statements.

What source do you have for this? You've got nothing here to corroborate your claims. –  Frank May 27 at 16:24

@Frank, oh, sorry, I thought you wanted to find out the truth. When I saw Richard's answer, I suppressed my urge to attack him for his attitude, quickly googled and found sources backing him up - what else? –  Orc JMR May 27 at 18:49

@OrcJMR The onus is on the answerer to prove his claims. If someone is saying something that is contradicted, it requires proof. So far, we've got nothing. I'm willing to take the word of someone more open (and more trusted, here), over someone who provides no proof, and seems to be attacking those that challenge him. –  Frank May 27 at 18:54

After all of this discussion I was able to do a first hand test with this, and I am seeing both damage that diminishes as a monster starts to take damage, and a constant 1% life regen. Marking this as the accepted answer. –  jblaske May 29 at 2:27
