Vaal Pact is a keystone passive skill that grants doubled life leech speed and maximum life leech rate, but causes life regeneration to have no effect.

Mechanics

Interaction with Zealot's Oath

The Zealot's Oath keystone causes life regeneration to restore energy shield instead of life. Because Vaal Pact causes life regeneration to have no effect, taking it along with Zealot's Oath will prevent the character from regenerating energy shield. It will not prevent energy shield from recharging as it normally does. Note that energy shield regeneration, from sources such as Shavronne's RevelationShavronne's Revelation

Left ring slot: You cannot Recharge or Regenerate Energy Shield
Left ring slot: 40 Mana Regenerated per Second
Left ring slot: +100 to maximum Energy Shield

, will still work, as it is specifically energy shield regeneration and not life regeneration converted by Zealot's Oath.
