  • This enchantment will give a purple glow to the weapon.
  • The enchantment has 6ppm (procs per minute), and deals Shadow damage that can be resisted (partially or wholly), and even amplified. Damage inflicted is converted into healing. The healing bonus is not reduced when the receiver is under the effect of a reduced healing debuff.
