Immortal Ambition is a keystone passive skill which disables both energy shield recharge and regeneration and makes it degenerate by 5% each second, while causing life leech to recover energy shield when on full life.

This keystone is only granted from certain unique items.

Mechanics

The Life Leech is applied to Energy Shield instead while on Full Life mod is functionally different from Ghost Reaver. While Ghost Reaver converts all sources of Life Leech to Energy Shield Leech, Immortal Ambition modifies Life Leech's effect while you are at full life. In turn, Life Leech modifiers do not affect leech from Ghost Reaver, and Energy Shield Leech does not affect leech from Immortal Ambition.[1] Instances of life leech or energy shield leech do not interact with each other.

Life Leech effects from Immortal Ambition are not removed at Full Life or Full Energy Shield, because Life Leech instances are only ever removed at full life, which is prevented by the Life Leech Effects Are Not Removed At Full Life mod.[1]

Version history

Version Changes
3.14.0
  • The Life Leech effects Recover Energy Shield instead while on Full Life stat is now limited by Maximum total Energy Shield Recovery from Leech instead of by Maximum total Life Recovery from Leech
  • Combined with the Corrupted Soul Keystone and the powerful recovery source of life leech, it provided too great an increase to a character's combined recovery.
  • This change preserves the desirable Life Effects not being removed at Full Life aspect of the Keystone, but limits how easy it is to recover your Energy Shield pool.
3.11.0
  • Introduced to the game.
