The sorclock I'm building (see cheese elsewhere) will be picking up a level of cleric, probably Life Domain.

It looks like Vampiric Touch would interact with Disciple of Life to provide extra healing.

Is that correct, or am I missing something?


Yes, this should work. Disciple of Life says that

Whenever you use a spell of 1st level or higher to restore hit points to a creature, the creature regains additional hit points equal to 2 + the spell’s level.

Vampiric Touch is a spell of 1st level or higher, check. You are a creature, so if you use Vampiric Touch to restore your hit points, you should get the benefit.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Not the leech. Only the restoration would get affected, not the damage dealt. \$\endgroup\$ Apr 26 '16 at 13:40
  • \$\begingroup\$ Probably worth clarifying the math here. You roll Vampiric Touch and deal 10 pts of damage. By default you would heal 5 points of damage, but instead you heal 10 (5+2+3) points of damage. If you cast this as a 4th level spell and dealt 10 pts, you would instead heal 11 pts because of the spell's level. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ @Miniman Vampiric Touch has a duration?..Does that still counts as "when ever you use a spell of Lv1 +" that the effects of Disciple of Life still occur? \$\endgroup\$ Mar 28 '17 at 7:29

    \$\begingroup\$ @JhayrelleSilver We have a question about using Disciple of Life with a spell that heals over the duration. You asked it, actually. \$\endgroup\$
