    Vampirism or spell sucking is a magic stat that converts a percentage of the damage dealt by an ability into life gained. The activated abilities that No. that "apply on-hit effects" or modify the "next basic attack" benefit from spell vampirism. [1]

    Spell Vampirism works from active item effects, summoner spells, and abilities, regardless of the type of damage dealt. It is calculated from the damage dealt to the enemy after reductions due to statistics such as magic resistance, armor or effects such as Unbreakable Will.

    • The passive effect of Spirit Appearance increases the effectiveness of spell vampirism.
    • Natural spell vamp skills have their own full stack of spell vamp with items, runes, and masteries that provide spell vamp.
    • Spell Vampirism applies to all damage types: Magical, Physical, and True.
      • There is a common misconception that it only applies to magic damage, which is not true.
    • Spell vamp is applied to just about anything that is not classified as a basic attack. This is in most abilities, but it also includes items (for example Hextech Pistol Saber) and summoner spells (for example Punishment).
      • Impact damage modifiers (for example Absorbing Strike, also known as "bonus" damage or "additional" damage), impact damage over time (eg Seastone Trident and Toxic Shot) and abilities that apply on-hit effects (for example To regret and Mystic Shot) are classified as basic attacks, and will not apply spell vamp. Any physical damage dealt will trigger lifesteal, while any magic and true damage dealt will not trigger lifesteal or spell vampirism.
      • A list of on-hit champion abilities that activate spell vampirism can be viewed here.
    • Area of 鈥嬧媏ffect (AoE) spells only apply 33% of the indicated spell vampirism.
      • Some skills like Foxfire are classified as single-target multiple projectiles, and will apply 100% of the spell vampirism. Whether a skill is classified as such varies from case to case. For instance, Hextech micro rocket is classified as area of 鈥嬧媏ffect despite being similar to Fox Fire.
      • Abilities with both single and multi-target effects, such as Mace of Spades Mace of Spades and Sow Desolation, they will apply spell vampirism depending on which effect takes place. It will be, full spell vampirism against a single target; or 33% against various targets.
      • Single target abilities that apply splash damage will apply full spell vamp on the primary target, and 33% on splash damage. For instance, Conflagration with Flare and Desperate Power Desperate Power.
    • Damage over time (DoT) skills apply full spell vampirism (for example Flare Brand y Maleficent Visions of Malzahar).
    • Doesn't work with reflected damage from Cota de Espinas. However, it works with reflected damage from Molten Shield and Defensive position.
    • The effect of reducing heals as Ignition, The Executioner's Call and Morellonomicon reduces the life restored by spell vampirism. See cures reduction for more information.


    Spell vamp is multiplied by total spell damage to determine the amount of life restored. Area of 鈥嬧媏ffect spells, however, only heal a third of the normal amount.

    Example: Dealing 300 damage to a single target with 10% spell vamp will heal 30 health. Dealing 300 area damage with 10% spell vamp will heal 10 health for each enemy affected.
