I have some set items which give me 20% Health stolen properties. How exactly does that lifesteal works, does it heal me for 20% of my weapons DPS per hit, 20% of the damage that was actually done per hit, or something else?

It means it heals you for 20% of the Damage actually done to the monsters.

If you hit for 100 Damage you get healed 20 HP.

Do you know if it's only for auto-attack? – John Mar 3 '13 at 19:44
For the best of my knowledge its only for weapon damage/auto attack. I haven't seen skill damage triggering life-steal. – Samyam Mar 5 '13 at 21:15
