    i have a thorns question

    i know this might sound noobish but if you use bramble in a duel does the thorns aura form it reflect all melee damage? like from smite and ww and charge and zeal and other melee attacks
    and if it does does the ele damage on say zeal also count?(as in from auradin)
    also if you have 50%dr does thorns go in before or after dr is calculated?
    thanks

    Not if you hit the person, at least not noticeably. If you hit their minion or mercenary though, it can hurt. Badly

    Nope

    Honestly not sure.

    to make thorns work:

    you need to have a very large life base
    you can't wear any damage reduced
    your opponent cant have any damage reduced (amp them!!)

    .17 (or 1/6th) base pvp penalty
    extra .1 (1/10th) penalty for thorns

    IE they hit you with a 6K charge, reduced to 1K by pvp penalty, 1000% reflected by thorns, but the 10% penalty makes that 100% reflection, then 1/6th of that is actually done to the enemy player: IE 170 damage out of the 1K you took.

    The numbers vary, damage reduction makes the calculation more complicated, but you get the idea. A thorns-based character would require crazy life to be effective.
