I thought it’d be pretty cool and characterful to stat up my vampire to be able to use life stealer so he could actually suck the blood of his enemies. Took a while to find and buy some tomes of necromancy, then I had to take the following upgrades: necromancy, sorcery, death vision (useless as he already causes fear), doom, then 4 levels of life stealer. He should have a 40% chance to cast it (the max), but 4-5 attempts per game in over 25 games and he has failed every single time! WTF?! It’s cost 8 levels and a rare item, on an expensive hired sword, and it does absolutely nothing! It’s only supposed to take 3-5 wounds from the target, anyway. It’s not like that’s even a big hit this far on in the game, so why is it so difficult to access, and impossible to cast? If armour makes spells impossible then it would say so in the spell description and in the armour description. It doesn’t. he has managed to use ‘spell of awakening’ to resurrect a dead opponent. But that is the only spell that has worked for him, ever! This is clearly a bug that needs fixing.
