Blocking with a shield

Damage Shield is a protection warrior talent which causes normal and blocked melee hits taken to reflect damage equal to 10/20% of the warrior's block value.


  • Staple for AoE tanking/farming. Reflected damage can crit and is affected by armor and abilities/buffs which increase damage by percentage.
  • Synergizes with  [Glyph of Blocking] that increases block value.
