Undead crown problem?
I recently picked up D1 again.
This time with a rogue which I didnt play before.
I started a single play game and after killing the Skeleton King got the undead crown as usual.
I figured this might be useful to wear but it doesnt seem to work with my bow using the rogue.
i.e. I cant see any life increase in my orb (or on character stat screen) when i attack monsters with my bow.
Is there some restriction on this item where it doesn't steal life for attacks with bow? :blink:
I picked up a warhammer (5-9 dmg; 26-30 after I equipped) and a small shield from Griswold.
I had no problem stealing 1-2 point of life per hit with those.

I had read Jarulf's guide for D1 + hellfire specifically about the undead crown (0-12.5% life steal I think)
and it never mentiones bows being excluded.

Does anyone know more about how this item behaves?

I'm running v1.0.9.1

Be it life leech or mana leech, it will not work with a bow. It is solely for melee weapons. :)

BTW - Welcome to the forums. :)
