I'm considering trying out a melee wizard build for Inferno (now that monsters in acts 3/4 don't hit quite as massively!) but was wondering one thing...
I know that Lifesteal (weapons with 2.5% damage turned into life) gets an 80% penalty (IE. it's only 20% effective) in inferno difficulty to curb the potential invulnerability from the stat early on like D2 had.
I was wondering if the wizard skill Spectral Blades with the rune Healing Blades (on a crit, get 8% of the damage back as life) gets this same penalty, or can I be sure to get that full 8% returned?
If it takes an 80% penalty it's totally not worth it. But if it doesn't it looks promising.
