Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Activation base is a fixed mana value.
  • Character can still be knocked around by forceful effects, provided they meet the requirements.
  • Adds a "+50% damage resistance" modifier against all enemy attacks, which in turn can be reduced by appropriate effects and properties. Notably, the spirit element inherently makes damage reduction half as effective, thus this talent only reduces damage from spirit attacks and spells by 25%.
