I just mastered Rath and got his legendary item, “Improved Genetic Syphon”, but I don’t understand the description. It says “Rath Only: Gain 1% life steal with each use of Genetic Syphon, up to 10%”. A few specific questions:
What constitutes a “use of Genetic Syphon”? Each time he hits an enemy (battleborn or minion)?
Does this reset on death, or after getting the 10% bonus it lasts for the remainder of the match?
Does this 10% apply to both melee attacks and skills?
If I’m understanding question 3 correctly, does picking “Swordsman’s Salve” at helix 5 (which increases your melee life steal to 30% but decreases your skill life steal to 0%) and equipping improved genetic syphon result in the 10% life steal applying to skills (and now 40% to melee attacks)?
Thank you very much for your help. As a Rath main, it would be very useful to get answers to these questions.
