Leechsteel Brooch and plasma cannon

Do the overcharged shots of the plasma cannon proc the Leechsteel Brooch’s life steal effect?

They used to, but they don’t anymore. I believe all damage done in sentry mode does proc the effect, however.

Oh, that’s a bummer. Are the overcharged shots no longer considered skill damage?

They’re still affected by skill damage (the overcharged shots, that is; minor shots remain unaffected), but they no longer count as “a skill” that will proc the leechsteel effect.

So they won’t proc Bola’s Target Finder or Shield Web Interdictor?

That I’m not sure of. It used to proc bola’s, but they’ve added a skill-damage-minimum required to proc the damage amp. I would guess it would affect SWI as that item doesn’t have a minimum damage requirement, as far as I know. I’d guess it still procs bola’s but I think it may be worth testing yourself.

I’m confused now. If the overcharged shots do not count as a skill for proc’ing Leechsteel, why would they count as a skill to proc Bola’s or the Interdictor? I suppose that if the “fix” were to Leechsteel and not Isic’s cannon, then it could be that way, but it seems like a confusing way of doing things.

Two types of activation
1 upon skill use
2 upon skill damage

ISIC’s cannon is no longer skill use

But then it should proc Leechsteel Brooch, shouldn’t it?

The description on Leechsteel might not be accurate
A lot of legendaries have that problem
