This is not a spell, but rather the effect of casting Vampiric Embrace on yourself.
Vamiric Embrace is a 8th level Necromancer spell & a 22nd level Shadowknight spell.

Click HERE for more details.

Esentially, Vampiric Embrace places a short lived buff on you.

This buff (VampEmbraceNecro) will give you a chance to drain your opponents hit points while engaged in melee combat.

The buff is scaled to your level, meaning the spell will grow in power as you grow in levels (e.g. more hit points drained, longer duration).

The VampEmbraceNecro effect can also be obtained through Alternate Advancement or certain items that have this effect built into them.

Okay, so ive read most to the post here made by ppl looking for these innate abilities for their shadowknights but still i find myself not knowing where i go to get these abilities such as vampiric embrace. i have harm touch up but that is it. my SK is a erudite so what i am wanting to know is....

Where/ or when can i go to learn these innate abilities (if required)? Any can someone give me locations or NPC names (if needed)

# May 15 2004 at 9:20 AM Rating: Decent
what's a proc?
RE: proc?
# Jun 27 2004 at 2:41 AM Rating: Excellent
short for "process" i believe. it means a spell that happens during combat that usually comes from gear that you have on but its applicable to beastlords who give spells that "proc" to their pets. during combat the pet will proc/process the spell. get it? if not...im out of ideas :) good example is look up a weapon that has an effect on it...chancecs are the effect is a proc. if the effect is during combat it is a proc.
Where is it?!!

People, please READ the posts that come before you. And I quote, "This is not a spell, it is the proc effect that the level 8 spell vampiric embrace puts on you." -KarleLichloathe

You cast V.E. on yourself, and then you have this proc. You will want a dex buf and/or good dex gear in order to use it well, since procs go off at a rate determined mainly by dex.

For a necro, this is an interesting spell it lasts 1.8 min, and combined with Banshee Aura, it would allow lower-level necros to help out their weaker pets by tanking occasionally.

I used to hunt in LoIO when I was 20ish solo. I would summon a pet, put up my lifetap dot, nuke and BA. Had I realized what this spell did, I would have included it too.

I would then pull a mob with SV for low-agro debuf, let my pet tank while I dotted and nuked. The nuke would get me agro, and I would tank it until dead. It was not very mana-efficient, but lacking any kind of good pet-healing or a reliable and mana-efficient fear, this was the best exp I was able to get.

I rarely took enough damage that I was in danger, and when I did I would just FD and let my pet tank a bit more until the mob was snare-dumb. Down-time was dominated by mana-regen, as I was an iksar and my inate HP-regen was enough to out-pace mana.
