Skill Functions and Interactions

Less Damage taken when Hit: This modifier is applied at the very end of the damage calculations. As the damage reduction is only applied on hits (including reflect), damage over time effects like burning are not affected.

Chilled ground: Ground ice chills anything standing on it. This does not stack with other chills.
