    Title: Tap Soul Formula Still Allows for Positive Life Attunement
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No.
    Details: With high enough Death Attunement and high enough Tap Soul level, the "small penalty to the caster's Life Attunement" become a bonus. This bug was reported in the R69 Bug Forum and listed as Issue #65650 but has only gotten worse (see graphic below).
    Steps to Reproduce: Get Death Attunement to 300 and Tap Soul to level 140, cast Tap Soul (or just look under the tool tip in the Death tree).

    Note: This is a real problem for open PvP and the Virtue League PvP tournament. Our matches are going forever since healing has become so powerful at high levels. @Chris, please find a way to adjust the formulas at high levels without negatively affecting the lower levels. A simple, quick fix would be to make sure the penalty is never positive:

    New_Life_Attunement_Penalty = Min( Old_Life_Attunement_Penalty, 0 ).
