For other meanings of the term, see Leech.

Leech is a suffix that can appear on Magic and Rare Items. It provides a small Life Steal bonus.

It can start spawning on items at Item Level 6, but will not be able to spawn on all items until level 34. Some items also are not able to acquire full effect.

The steal comes from how much damage you do to the monster. So 5% Life Stolen will return 5% of the damage you do to a monster. Life steal only works on melee and physical ranged attacks.

Some monsters and objects, like Skeletons and Fire Towers, will not give life when attacked.
