Healing Blades


From Diablo Wiki

Healing Blades is a rune effect in Spectral Blade, a Signature Wizard skill that deals powerful damage at melee range.

This rune effect creates a powerful life steal effect, granting 8% of the damage done at life to the Wizard.

As high level Wizard do tens of thousands of points of damage, this could heal quite a bit very quickly. Of course high level monsters do enormous damage as well, making it risky to be in melee range, but a quick Wizard might strike while monsters were slowed or stunned, and then teleport out of range.
