A large portion of relevant modules/templates have now been switched to cargo. Various usages of SMW throughout the wiki need to be replaced by the new functions, in particular item tables. If some pages do not show up but contain no errors, please null-edit them. To see how you can help with the port check out Path_of_Exile_Wiki:To-do_list/SMW_migration (and leave a comment on the talk page if you have questions).

Mechanics and Interactions

Mind Over Matter modifiers stack additively with the 30% of Lightning Damage is taken from Mana before Life when Hit modifier.

Shocks inflicted on enemies trigger the Recover 3% of Maximum Mana when you Shock an Enemy modifier.[1] This is applied once for each enemy shocked, not per cast or attack. The you specifier means that the player must inflict the shock themself. This modifier can be used to mitigate reflected lightning damage.

Although the +20% chance to be Shocked modifier may seem hazardous, its effect is reduced by the fact that shock is calculated based off of the amount of lightning damage dealt to life and the fact that 30% of Lightning Damage is taken from Mana before Life when Hit.
