You have increased Attack speed, Cast speed and Character Size
A player uses the Headhunter to acquire the Soul Eater buff, and gets multiple stacks becoming extremely huge
This page is about the buff. For the Nemesis modifier datacard, see Modifier:MonsterNemesisSoulEater.

Soul Eater is a stackable buff that grants 5% increased attack speed, 5% increased cast speed and 1% increased character size per stack. Every enemy killed grants 1 stack.

Mechanics

Soul eater buff will persist until the original source creating it expires. Therefore the player character can't gain soul eater buff while they already have soul eater buff and can't refresh buff duration until its expires and loses all stacks. When having this buff, there is no cap on how many soul stacked.

Soul eater has a limited radius of 60 units.[1] Killing enemies farther away than this will not give stacks.[2]

Buff Interactions

Vaal skills will not gain souls during the Soul Eater buff effect.

Monsters

In addition to attack speed, cast speed and increased character size , nemesis version of Soul Eater buff on monster, gain Grants 5% increased Damage Reduction to aura owner on death (Hidden).[3] This means killing a pack of monsters around the pack leader that has Soul Eater nemesis mod/aura/buff, will make the monster with Soul Eater to have damage reduction. Due to game balancing, this damage reduction buff, however, did not apply to the player character who has Soul Eater.[4]
