has the modifier "Life Leech is applied to Energy Shield instead" but does not have Ghost Reaver's downside of 50% less Energy Shield Recharge Rate. Taking Ghost Reaver in addition to using Essentia Sanguis will impart no additional benefits but will still impart the 50% less Energy Shield Recharge Rate.


The Slayer's Endless Hunger ascendancy point does not work with Ghost Reaver, as leech effects will stop at full energy shield.


Ghost Reaver is located on the top right side of the tree, out from the Shadow's starting area.
