As title--is this working as intended?
Was playing a bit with Vampire form tier 5 Pale master tree. I found that the display listed my fortication at 210% (stacking with Symbiont (http://ddowiki.com/page/Item:Sustaining_Symbiont) (which is exceptional and should stack) and a sapphire of heavy fort). Also, I was getting healing on my shuriken throws--EACH one that hit was giving one hit point negative energy healing.

Improved Shrouding: Your Undead Shrouds gain the following additional benefits:
While in Shroud of the Juju Zombie, you gain +2 Constitution, 15 Physical Resistance Rating, and your Damage Reduction increases to 10/Slashing.
While in Shroud of the Master Vampire, you gain +2 Dexterity, your vulnerability to Light damage is reduced to 200% (from 300%), and your melee and unarmed attacks heal you for 1 point of Negative Energy damage.
While in Shroud of the Dread Wraith, you gain +2 Dexterity and your Incorporeal Miss Chance increases from 25% to 35%.
While in Shroud of the Archlich, you gain an additional +2 Intelligence and +10 to Negative Energy Spellpower.

You pretty much answered your own question, IF the description of the enhancement is displayed as intended, who knows in this game, then it's not working as intended :P

Seems too good to be true. Am interested in undead PM forms due to all the xoriat, level-draining and stat-draining epic content now. The healing on the shurikens is just insane. Throwers are already nigh-unkillable..

Yes that definately sounds like a bug and not WAI. You can tell that even from the way this ability was meant flavor wise because draining HP from a monster should not work at range. That's why you cannot find or craft any form of vampirism on ranged/thrown weapons in DDO. That would probably make builds like the Dread Ninja quite overpowered.

hi Firewall, thx for your feedback. Yup, definitely not WAI but I wonder if it will ever be fixed--throwers are notoriously buggy.
I will post some screenie of the hits later. My build is not specced for a thrower--the only feat I have on it is shuriken expertise--but it does reveal the healing. No sign of it proccing life stealing.
