This rune effect was called "Shrapnel" prior to being renamed and modified in Patch 1.0.5.

Hardened is a rune effect in Evasive Fire, a Hatred-generating Demon Hunter skill that adds a defensive bonus to the Demon Hunter. The usual Evasive Fire backflip is removed, and instead this rune grants a 25% bonus to Armor for 3 seconds.
