Searched, but didn't feel like looking through several pages of irrelevant junk.

How exactly does absorb work? I keep seeing people mention it acting like 2x resistance, but I'm not sure I understand it entirely. And is it applied the same way for both straight and percentage absorb?

Which is it?
A: That amount of damage is negated entirely, then is used to heal you.
100 damage with 10 absorb: 100 damage - 10 = 90 damage, then you are healed 10, resulting in 80 total

B: Full damage is done, then you are healed.
100 damage with 10 absorb: 100 damage taken, you are healed 10, resulting in 90 total damage.


Also, what is the cap on absorb?
