Description

Life Drain.png
A skill designed for battle recovery. Using this can quickly recover your HP while dealing lethal damage to your opponent. Using this skill can greatly enhance your Alchemy knowledge. Damage increases with lower HP. (Material: 2 Wind Crystals, 1 Fire Crystal, 1 Water Crystal, 1 Clay Crystal)

Details

Life Drain being used on a Zombie Soldier.
  • Requires a cylinder and/or guard cylinder equipped as well as 2 Wind Crystals, 1 Fire Crystal, 1 Clay Crystal, and 1 Water Crystal in the player's inventory in order to use.
  • A special Alchemy skill using all four Alchemy Elements to steal the Life force of others to replenish one's own.
  • This skill damages enemies in two parts:
    1. The draining portion, sapping HP directly from the enemy.
      • Targets will be forced to walk while being drained, but can still attack and use skills normally.
      • If the user is attacked or the target moves out of range, the skill will be canceled.
      • Wounds are not restored.
      • A numerical damage value is not displayed.
      • Completely ignores Magic Defense, Magic Protection, Passive Defense, Mana Shield, Invulnerability, and PvP Damage Rate.
      • 35% of the user's lost Health is added onto Life Drain's draining damage.
        • Lost health refers to the total amount of health lost. For example, the player will deal more damage if their health is 1/1000 (999 health lost) as opposed to 1/100 (99 health lost).
        • For example, if the user has lost 100 of their maximum Health, an additional 35 damage is added to Life Drain's draining damage.
        • This does not restore additional HP, however.
    2. Additional damage, once the draining portion is complete.
      • This occurs once the user reaches full HP or up to the unwounded portion, or drains the enemy's HP to 0.
        • Players with high latency may drain the target's HP below 0.
      • This portion knocks back the enemy.
      • This portion does not occur if the user is interrupted during the draining or the enemy becomes invulnerable to attack.
      • If knockback damage is not dealt (either for above reasons or because the skill was manually cancelled) it will not reset elves' Hide cooldown, and Elemental Wave will remain active.
      • Alchemy Mastery, Fire Alchemy, Clay Alchemy, Water Alchemy and Wind Alchemy increases the knockback damage.
        • This is calculated as: Final Damage = Knockback Damage * {1 + Cylinder bonus + 3*[Alchemy Mastery Bonus
          + (Water Alchemy Bonus + Fire Alchemy Bonus + Wind Alchemy Bonus + Clay Alchemy Bonus)/4]} * Cressida Effect Bonus
          .
  • Neither the drain nor the knockback may score a critical.
  • Life Drain cannot be used if the player has full HP.
    • However, Life Drain can be used if the skill is loaded before reaching full HP.
    • Dark Knights also may not load this skill if they are in Disarm status. It may be used if it is loaded before the status occurs, but may not be loaded again afterwards.
  • Can be loaded during Windmill's animation.
  • May be used through Barrier Spikes, including the ones in Provocation.
  • Life Drain may be used to finish enemies and some HP will be drained.
  • Using Life Drain counts for all four alchemy elemental masteries.

Trivia

  • When this skill was first released in the Northern American Server, it was called "HP Drain". It was later renamed back to "Life Drain" most likely due to the fact that the Strategy Guide, Generation 9 Dialogue, the Life Drain Crystal, and the Skill Requirements referred the skill as "Life Drain" rather than "HP Drain." In addition, Books and NPCs, such as Healing: Basics of Magic, have never addressed the Life Force as "HP".
