Reactive Armor


From Diablo Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Reactive Armor is a rune effect in Storm Armor, a Utility Wizard skill.

This rune effect triggers when the Wizard is hit, dealing 50% weapon damage to nearby enemies. This is not a shield or a defensive bonus, and does nothing to lessen the damage the Wizard takes. It's purely a way to add extra damage, almost passively.
