First I want to say that I talk from a pve perspective. I did search for posts about the reflective shield but found mostly pvp talk.
My question is:
As the tooltip says in the telent tree, this shield will reflect 45% of the damage absobed by the shield. (With 2/2 talentpoints)
It also says causes no threat.
There is nothing that says only direct damage or targeted damage, but from way back I want to remember that the reflect didn't work on aoe effects.
Am I wrong or is this still the case?
