attacker takes damage of... does this mod (such as on Swordback Hold shield or armor socketed with Amn runes) apply only to successful attacks against you or any attack? That is, if your defense or blocking prevent you from taking damage, does this mod have no effect? I'm trying to figure out what to socket Moser's Blessed Circle with. I have life & mana steal on my weapon so I have need for regenerate of either. My resists are maxed out. The only things that seem of use (for a lvl 32 barb) would be shaels for faster block rate or amns for attacker takes damage or els for added def.
