Buff

You take reduced damage when hit.

Fortify is a buff that grants the player 20% reduced damage taken from hits for 4 seconds.[1] This does not apply to damage over time, since it does not hit.

Mechanics

#% increased/reduced Damage taken when Hit modifiers are calculated after armour, resistances and endurance charges.[2]
