    I quite like this idea. It might give the Vampires a free "get of jail" card (or "get out of certain death" card) though. Clever Vampires would time the use cleverly as to allow for a swift retreat when they are near to death, especially if confronted by a Monk.

    I for one always tried to slow fleeing Vampires anyway I could.

    Perhaps some creature damage ignores this spell, like Monks? Do the bats absord all damage or just a percentange?

    Percentage thing I would think, but a very high percentage of damage. Spell ends when all bats die or after 10 seconds.

    As for creatures avoiding this spell, monks can completely avoid it. All melee attacks, however, have a greater percent of damage getting through. Melee is stronger against it than range.

    that is true, this will make vampires the ultimate survivors and, do the bats absorb damage specifically coming towards vampires or the general area?

    Caster-specific I would have said.

    With this spell vampires seem too powerful since they will never die and what are their stats because they might start acting like sponges for ranged creatures if those are too high (the stats)

    Just increase the cool down then - wouldn't be a problem if they can only deploy once per fight.

    That makes it more fair, I was scared that vampires turn into "tanks" if they use the spell too often
