I recently fought a pack of Vampiric Desecrators, and hit Serenity while standing in the desecration to finish off one of the mobs that was at low life. Almost instantly, the other two mobs were at full health again. I'm think they were lower on health, but I'm not sure.

Has anyone seen anything like this or done some testing?

Does damage you absorb still heal vampiric champions?

Absorbed damage should not heal vampiric champions. I just tested this on Hell with my Wizard and the skill "Diamond Skin" - whenever this skill was active and one of the champions swung at me, they gained no health. I am unsure if it is any different for Monks or their skills, but I doubt it.
