So I have started a Blades of Ice assassin. The idea was to max Blades of Ice, Phoenix Strike, Claw Mastery, and Blade Shield. For me Blade Shield was just to be some supplemental damage, so I'm not expecting a lot from the skill. But I would like to get what I can out of it. I've been looking for information on the skill and I have a pretty good understanding of most of it's aspects. What I am asking about is how the skill is affected by the various auras. Lets say we have a weapon that does around 100 damage on a normal hit. (100/4 BS Damage) Wearing war traveler boots (15-25 damage.) With a skill level 13 Blade shield (66-95 damage.) For roughly 106-145 Blade Shield damage... Then we add a might merc which would start with roughly a level 7 Might aura (100% Damage) Would that then only double the weapon damage for a total of 156-195 Blade shield damage? Or would the might have an effect on the boots and skill as well?
