2.3 and PW:S
Return to board index
Hey, I had a thought concerning the new patch notes on PW:S.
"•Power Word: Shield will receive additional benefit from +Dmg and +Healing
•Power Word: Shield (Rank 10, 11, 12) have had their base absorb lowered"
Those are the notes, and so I'm wondering, does PW:S get dmg bonus only if you have the talent near the end of the Disc talent tree to make it do damage, or do bonuses to dmg/heal only affect the amount that it absorbs?
Just curious if anyone knew.
Damage and healing affect the amount that PW:S absorbs. There is no actual damage component to it unless you have the reflective shield talent.
does not benefit from any spell damage, it merely does 50% of the damage that was absorbed by your shield, though it can crit. Spell power benefits it only by increasing the total amount absorbed.
Cool guys, thanks.
Has anyone tried using Reflective shield in conjunction with Imp PW:S before? I was just thinking it could a good combination for a "heavy blows" phase of some of the bosses. Probably too situational to spend any points in.
Anyway, thanks for helping me out with the mechanics of it, much appreciated.
