I really wish Anet would be specific in the descriptions. Is this 100% of damage done returned as life? 10%? 1%? Does it work for all damage? Certain spells? A slightly more detailed tooltip could solve this for many, many traits and skills.-- 05:28, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Tested this today. Heals a static 25 HP at level 80, 38 with the Bloodthirst trait, and is unaffected by healing power.tanpopo 15:50, 20 October 2012 (UTC)
Is the life stealing done by Vampiric in addition to the damage dealt by your attacks? (e.g. You deal 100 damage from your attack, life stealing does an additional 25 damage and heals you for 25) Or is it just a flat healing given to you with no additional damage inflicted on the target? - Zaxares 05:34, 27 November 2012 (UTC)
it deals damage equivalent to the health that you gain; the numbers are small and fly around similar in appearance to condition damage. Lumpy 01:14, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Seems like good information, I copied into the main article --Vesmir 23:37, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
As of today, all weapon skills seem to trigger Vampiric just fine. I'll update the page. tanpopo 15:52, 20 October 2012 (UTC)

October Balancing Patch[edit]

Just did some quick testing on how this scales with healing power, this is without the Bloodthirst trait

   Healing Power     Vampiric
   1388              38
   1223              37
   923               35
   465               33
   300               32
   0                 31

Would love to know if this stacks with Vampiric Precision in that a crit would trigger both Vampiric and Vampiric Precision. Anyone know? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 03:37, 31 March 2015 (UTC).
