    damage taken to mana question!

    Ok, making an es sorc,
    I was just wondering if i had damage taken goes to mana around 50+% and 95% es does this mean whenever somebody hits me my mana will go up even tho 95% damage is taken by es ?

    DTM only works on the damage you actually take on your lifebulb, so, no.

    Assuming 75 all resists and 95% ES (no magic damage reduction), you need to have 8000% DTM to completelty replenish damage dealt to your mana pool. For physical damage, the cap is 50%, so you "only" need 4000% DTM. Not that you will ever get this amount.

    When iDR kicks in, however, you have the option to negate ALL damage done to your life pool. In that case, no damage to life -> no mana gained, no matter DTM.

    Items with "Damage reduced by X" such as Gladiator's Bane as opposed to items with "Damage reduced by X%" such as Shaftstop.
