    Default Vampiric Essence, worth it for PvE?

    Looking for an answer from someone with experience here. Anyone know if Vampiric Essenence is a decent solo tool?

    Thanks in advance.

    No, wind glyph or razor edge are better in every situation. Even while soloing, it won't proc enough and it doesn't heal enough to make it worth it.

    No. As far as I can tell from my testing, it doesn't work at all right now. Two hours of gameplay. Didn't add up to even 1% of my HPS.

    If it actually worked, it might be useful. Maybe.

    Same here. It didn't proc even once in my 20min EI IA test of a farm spec.

    There is another thread somewhere on the boards where Vampiric Essence is reported as broken at the moment.

    Should be fixed now with Hotfix #3.

    If there was an iissue with it before, it is certainly fixed now, as it it procs fine and often for me. I have a solo build that relies specifically on it for heals and I'm certainly happy with it. Keep in mind you have to have a build that can do lots of damage, while not taking much damage for it to be effective. With my BD/RS build it was doing about 100/hps, which isn't a lot, but enough to keep me up during huge invasions and major rifts.

    It's total garbage in every sense of the word.
