[edit] Notes

  • Area of effect damage from spells still affects the target enchanted with Shadow Form.
  • Each damage packet's reduction is calculated individually, even from a single skill or attack.
  • Health degeneration, life stealing, and health loss are not damage and therefore not affected by the damage reduction or cap.
  • Can be used with Protective Spirit for 55 builds, as long as Protective Spirit is (re-)applied before Shadow Form every time.
  • Creatures summoned by the caster, such as minions and spirits, deal full damage.
Bug Bug.The -5 damage reduction is active for the expected duration of each enchantment, not its actual duration. Refreshing an Assassin enchantment before it ends reduces the received damage by an additional -5. There seems to be a limit to the amount of times a single enchantment can be renewed before damage reduction stops increasing for that enchantment.
