What do you think about Spell Vamp and Life Steal in Dominion? Are they worth it, considering the 20% health regeneration debuff?

Yes. They are almost required for ADC's.

In fact isn't there an item that increases healing effects on yourself by 20% effectively neutralizing the debuff from the crystal scar aura?

I'm actually pretty convinced the healing reduction portion of the aura is directly in response to how ridiculously good lifesteal is for both healing up between battles and outhealing the enemy in a duel.

Yes, and it has cooldown reduction and health. It's lovely. Though it's actually only 15%.

Lifesteal is insanely strong on almost any bruiser or AD Carry.

Spell Vamp... eh. Less so. On spammy single-target champs (Ryze and Cass for example) it's great, but the AOE penalty on most casters is horrible. Spell vamp is balanced for SR, where you get long breaks between fights to heal up from 6+ minions per wave.

You know Cass's E is treated as AoE spell for purposes of spellvamp, like all spells with CD less than 0.5 seconds, right?

Lifesteal is ridiculously strong.

Ah thanks for the correction.

I remember getting it on Fiddlesticks to get my life drain giving me some actual life. But that was months ago x_x

Visage only reduces the heal debuff to 8%. It does not "erase" 15%, it just increases base healing which is then reduced by the aura like everything else.

The ability to heal after fights is very powerfull, that's why the debuff is applied, and thats why the health packs are in the map, so people without heals have a way to keep up with people that can heal.

Cassiopeia's E is a unique case--it applies full spellvamp, but a 15% Rylai's slow. This is to prevent Cass from demolishing everything
