If you're at 100% health when you use this, does the blocking work any time you go below 75% health? Or do you have to start at below 75% and it ends as soon as you go above that? NalanaUser Nalana Darkling Blue Eye2.jpgTalk 18:19, 16 July 2008 (UTC)

I'l test it right now with my sin ;) Super Range Ranger 21:42, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
From what ive seen when i tested it u need to be under 50% health when u activate it. Super Range Ranger 22:03, 17 July 2008 (UTC)
ummm.. no, i use this on my sin, thats epic phail at testing. furthermore it doesnt say that in the skill description, it doesnt matter at all when u cast this, although it doesnt take effect unless ur under 50% hp. so basically the more hp u have, the wider range of effectiveness this skill will have.-- 22:42, 13 August 2008 (UTC)
I still dont block even 1 hit when i activate it when im over 50% :S
OK i meant u have to be UNDER 50% when you activate it, does it end whenever you go ABOVE 50%? or does it "turn on and off" with your health? NalanaUser Nalana Darkling Blue Eye2.jpgTalk 18:54, 28 August 2008 (UTC)
You're confusing yourself. You can cast this whenever, even at 100% health. If you fail below 50% health, you begin blocking. If you go back up above 50% health, you stop blocking. 09:53, 1 October 2008 (UTC)
It seems stupid but this skill has always seemed bugged to me, as i dont feel like its 75% at all. Timed 22:01, 10 February 2009 (UTC)

The enchantment doesn't end if you are above 50% hp. It will only block if you are below 50% hp. Why is it so hard to understand ?? 10:22, 4 August 2009 (UTC)

Update today...[edit]

so if your under 50%hp, activate this, and the +hp regen brings you above 50% hp, will it shut off? 23:09, 6 August 2009 (UTC)

no. like before, if healing or whatever brought you over 50%. however, the effect is lost until you get under 50% again 11:31, 7 August 2009 (UTC)

Perhaps this skill will start to justify using "Vengeance is Mine?" I don't expect it to be astoundingly popular, but it might be worth brining a set into RA with this skill for those times when you don't have a monk keeping you at full health all the time. 06:03, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

This skill is extremely buggy at best. With the addition of the health regen aspect, it is quite evident that if you buff yourself at > 50% health, upon dropping below that threshhold, the health regen will NOT kick in a good portion of the time. While its incredibly difficult to tell for sure, it doesn't feel like the 75% block rate kicks in either.

It does seem to always work correctly if you cast it WHILE under 50% health though.

I had the same problem and noticed that the regen kicks in under 50% IF you activate a skill. I added this to the bugs page. Silence in Death 23:50, 11 August 2009 (UTC)

The regen will kick in if something "new" happens to your character: you move, you use a skill, you're hit, a new condition is applied to you, etc. In other words, the regen will only stay silent if you're standing still while Conjure Nightmare kills you. G R E E N E R 18:04, 15 June 2010 (UTC)
