I think vampirism true does restore life points, that's why it's called vampirism true Note that vampiric drain, unlike wands and melee, feeds the player.

Edit: sort of forgot I've been meaning to ask about invulnerability. Is it always a 12/13 chance to resist damage, or do stronger or unique monsters get a better chance at breaking through? And is there ever a way for the player to get a spell akin to psycho spear to pierce the invulnerability that angels cast? (or dispel magic, that works too)

Thanks again!
Pretty sure it's a flat 12/13 chance. There might be some special mechanic for some specific monster, but I don't remember any.

Mindcrafters (and monster-mode Angels) get their own psycho-spears, and Axemasters get a melee attack that ignores invulnerability.

Regular characters can "hope" to find a death scythe, as they penetrate invulnerability, but they're also, well, death scythes... So a more practical hope is to find Dragonchip, or just to wait out the invulnerability.
