Gain magical power through the blood of your enemies. Makes magic a much messier affair. Not a good conversation-starter.

  • When you get the Soul Collector skill, you no longer get the Stolen Spirit buff when you kill an enemy, just the Stolen Soul buff.
    • As of v1.1.4 (on Linux 64-bit), it is possible to proc both Stolen Spirit and Stolen Soul at the same time.
  • It appears that when an enemy dies due to a DoT (Damage over Time) such as being lit on fire, Stolen Spirit and Stolen Soul do not proc properly. However, should the enemy die due to walking over an area already lit on fire, they will work properly.
  • Enemies killed by friendly monsters do not restore your mana.
