Poor excuse for a focus

Subject says it all.. The spear line is more of a waste of spell book space and mana then anything else.. This focus is just useless.. want to give Sk something useful devs? give us more lifetap focus effects..

I'm afraid not.

12: Limit: Resist(Disease allowed)

SK lifetaps are all Magic resist, unless you count the Bite line, which work off Disease. Increased damage on those spells doesn't affect the healing they do :/
However, I'm not sure if those would be negated by one of the other rules.

So once again this focus effect is only any good for the Spears, which are pretty much useless in a lot of cases because of the massive Disease resist on mobs after Luclin.

I agree that it would be much better giving us better lifetap foci - Pallies can heal themselves no matter what they're fighting, our self healing depends on the mob resists. Increased lifetap damage or healing would be more useful.
