Default Lifetap resists

IIRC NPCs couldnt resist lifetaps, on P99... they can.

Ivandyr's Hoop
This item has caused an inbalance in the raid game, and as such we have made some changes. In addition to a global resist increase to all lifetap spells, Ivandyr's Hoop has had it's rarity slightly increased, it has had it's merchant value removed (it can not be sold or recharged to merchants), and it will be disabled in Veeshan's Peak. We will evaluate if further changes need to be made.

Such a shame, too. Sure seems like just removing the click from the hoop and leaving lifetap resists alone would have been a much better way to handle the problem.

Isn't it classic for lifetaps to not land on mobs +6 levels over you and on mobs that are 100% magic immune?

There are some mobs that shouldn't be resisting that are though (like Cazic).

raid scene wasn't as desperate during classic leading to these kinds of strategies either

Classic had a change involving lifetaps at some point to work something like this. Prior to that lvl 20 necros could run around together burning down sand giants and such.

I don't think its fair at all to necros or sk's that these don't work just because of hoops.

Fix the lifetap code, nerf only ivandyr's to be like -0 or -50MR, un-nerf all others (including deadly). Honestly there's no reason the ivandy'rs tap can't just be a new spell with the same name but less of a resist mod.

On live, the mob auto-resist when 6+ levels higher than player caster was(is?) vs. all spells and not specific to lifetaps. It apparently bothered the original devs deeply that a zerg of low level players might use lifetaps and druid dots to take down a high level mob.

I cannot recall there being an exemption for lifetaps vs. 100% MR mobs, they resisted everything that was magic based.

They went through several iterations of code changes it seems.

My first char was a necro, and we definitely got 6 16-20 necromancers together and dropped sand giants in like, june 99. Probably the most fun I ever had in eq, but I digress. Lifetaps definitely didn't seem to apply the hard and fast level rule that other spells did.
