Encrust Question: Blood Groove
Hey guys,

So I encrusted a sword with an ability to supposedly steal life from opponents, but I never seem to get anything from it. Anyone know why that would be? The effect is listed under the sword in yellow now.

Ack crap. I had to delete my two previous posts due to brain damage lol. I found Blood Groove -- sorry I didn't notice the title of your post at first. So I looked it up and it's a secret recipe that was so secret that I'd never seen nor heard of it before.

Procs happen randomly -- I'm not sure if the frequency of weapon procs are a fixed percentage, or if they are based on a stat, or if it varies by the type of weapon proc (I know that it varies for skill procs). If it's anything like vampirism, then it may have varying results based on your target (for example, full effect vs. animals, no effect vs. undead or vegetables, and partial effect for everything else).

Haha well at least I can feel proud that my sword (which is a pretty sweet Emerald Sword that I got on lvl 4) has a perhaps not so common (if maybe not even useful haha) enchant

Flipped through the XML.

It's a 25% chance to proc vampirism attack, idetical to the skill's basic proc.

So, useless on undead, vegetables, constructs, etc.

Very cool and good job! Someone ought to document that somewhere either in the wiki or Dredmorpedia, because these are the types of questions that keep on reappearing.
