Mechanics

The modifier #% of Life Leech applies to enemies as Chaos Damage takes 200% of the actual life gained from leech and deals it as chaos damage to enemy that was the target of the leeching. Therefore, by default no damage is dealt if the player is at full health while leeching. This damage is not affected by damage modifiers as it is considered as reflected damage.[1]

With Ghost Reaver modifier the damage is dealt based on energy shield gained from leech.

Using instantaneous life leech modifiers (such as Vaal Pact or BloodseekerBloodseeker

) causes chaos damage to be dealt instantly as well rather than over time. The damage dealt is based on the life gained before the character is at their maximum life total.

If Endless Hunger is allocated, then the damage will continue as long as the leech lasts, even once at full life.[2] If combined with instantaneous life leech, then the total amount of potential leech is dealt instantly, including that above the player's maximum life.[3][4]
