Life Leeched per Second is doubled.
Maximum Life Leech Rate is doubled.
Life Regeneration has no effect. [1]
My ancestral pact was sealed. Forevermore, I would gain sustenance only from the ravaged flesh of my enemies.

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. Vaal Pact applies before Zealot's Oath however; so taking it along with Zealot's Oath will not grant the character any energy shield regeneration. This will not prevent energy shield from recharging as it normally does. Additionally, it does not prevent other sources of energy shield regeneration, such as Shavronne's RevelationShavronne's Revelation

"Shavronne held Sanity in her right
hand and Revelation in her left.
Brutus chose the left hand."
- Kadavrus, Surgeon to the Umbra
, as it is specifically energy shield regeneration and not life regeneration converted by Zealot's Oath.

Location

Since version 3.1.0, Vaal Pact is located on the bottom side of the tree, close to the Duelist leech cluster.
