    Ancient's pledge

    I just made an Ancient 's pledge,one of its attributes is 10% damage taken goes to mana.Does it seriously affect my mana?

    Simply put: it means that 10% of the damage taken, is taken from your mana instead of your health.

    Not quite. it's 10% from the damage you took. So example:
    monster hits for 100 dmg.
    You have no damage reduce, no blocking, so he does 100 dmg straight to your health.
    Then, if you're not dead, you get 10% of that 100 dmg, 10, added to your mana bulb.

    So you're not immune to dmg if you reach 100% mana absorb, you just get as much mana as you were damaged.

    Damage to Mana does affect energy shield though. It affects how much you lose as part of ES's absorb, which can effectively be hit points anyway.
