| Blood Boil|
Cost: 18 Mana (-2 per Spell Level)
Kills the victim by boiling their blood from within, but returns part of the damage inflicted upon the caster.
Damage Type: Physical
Blood Boil was a spell in demo version of Diablo I. In the released game, it was cut.
Blood Boil would inflict 100% of the target's current Life in damage, but only in close combat (changed to ranged cast later). The mechanic was later reused for Bone Spirit. In return, it would also drain the character's Life, as a percentage of the amount drained from the victim.
- Character Life Drain: (100% - (12,5% x Spell Level)) of the damage inflicted
Past spell level 8, it would actually heal the hero, even beyond maximum Life. Ironically, that would result in immediate game crash.
Presumably this spell would not work on Undead.
