Mind Over Matter
Keystone

30% of Damage is taken from Mana before Life [1]
While the mind endures, so too will the body.

Mind Over Matter (often referred to as MoM) is a keystone passive skill that allows the character's mana to absorb a portion of the damage dealt to life.

Mechanics

30% of the damage that would be inflicted on the character's life is deducted from mana instead. If the character has insufficient mana, then the remainder of the damage will be taken from life.

Mana/Life ratio

For mana to not run out before life the unreserved mana should be at least 43% of unreserved life, granted that 30% of damage is taken from mana before life.

Derivation of the mana/life ratio

Let {\textstyle  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} k = {X \over 100}
    } be the proportion of damage taken from mana before life. To completely remove all mana, the damage,  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} dmg
    , has to be:

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} mana - (k \times dmg) = 0

 

 

 

 

(1)

To completely remove all life:

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} life - (1-k) \times dmg = 0

 

 

 

 

(2)

Solving equation (1) for  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} dmg
    :

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} dmg = {mana \over k}

 

 

 

 

(3)

(3) in (2) gives:

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} life - (1-k) \times {mana \over k} = 0

 

 

 

 

(4)

Solving (4) for  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} mana
    :

 \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} mana = {k \over 1-k} \times life

 

 

 

 

(5)

The ratio {\textstyle  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} {mana \over life} = {k \over 1-k}
    } leads to exactly all life and mana being removed from a one-shot. If the ratio is less, i.e. {\textstyle  \pagecolor[RGB]{15,15,15} \color[RGB]{163,141,109} {mana \over life} < {k \over 1-k}
    }, then mana will have run out before all life is removed.

The table below show the necessary mana/life ratio required for varying amounts of Mind over Matter.

10% 11%
20% 25%
30% 43%

50% 100%

Interactions

Eldritch Battery and Chaos damage

If the node Eldritch Battery is chosen energy shield protects mana instead of life. This energy shield will absorb the converted damage before it is applied on mana. Since chaos damage bypasses energy shield the chaos damage will then be applied directly on mana.

Chaos Inoculation

Mind Over Matter is rendered useless in conjunction with the Chaos Inoculation keystone. Damage is applied to energy shield before life, and as a result there is no opportunity for any damage to be absorbed by mana.[1]

Damage taken Gained as Mana when Hit

If the character has equipped items with the x% of Damage taken Gained as Mana when Hit modifier, this can help with maintaining mana. This mana gain is spread over 4 seconds following the hit.[2] In versions prior to Version 3.0.0, these effects restored mana instantly before damage was taken.[3] This modifier can be found on certain items and passive skills:
