The damage is physical, it triggers Mark of Pain. remember the grawl bombing? 15:36, 4 July 2007 (UTC)

I have a feeling that if more research is done, it will turn out to be piercing damage, since that just seems like common sense? -elviondale (tahlk) 19:44, 31 July 2007 (UTC)

Was reading something off of PvXwiki and found an old gamespot link that said this skill used to be called Bow Parry. worthy of trivia? Dagger Wagger 02:34, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

Bow Parry already redirects here, so its nothing new really ~ SCobraUser-SuperCobra-Sig.png 14:35, 7 January 2008 (UTC)

The damage from this skill actually does trigger Pain Inverter - wait for a Kournan Bowman to cast Whirling Defense, with lots of minions around him, cast Pain Inverter and watch the ranger just suddenly suffer a lot of yellow numbers. So either the bug note is false or just old information? kipinae 07:41, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Does it do Damage even if something else, say metal block or shroud of defense, blocks an attack? --The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk).
Needs a damage buff, the only reason I bring it is for the 75% block chance. If I dont need that I don't take the skill. Would be more usefull with a damage buff and then you could use it in caster heavy areas more effectively.
[[1]] look at 5.50, and say that again =) 21:07, 3 September 2011 (UTC)

Is this being nerfed?[edit]

I've heard rumors that this is getting nerfed so that the damage only triggers on piercing damage. Is this true? If so, could you please provide a source? Random Weird Guy 21:48, 3 January 2012 (UTC)
