    Damage reduction stacking


    given the nature of damage flying around in DS, I decided to play a little my shadow spec to add some survivability, something in the lines of

    So, a little question - how does mitigation from Shadow form stack from Spell warding (buff gained via Inner Sanctum talent)? Additively or multiplicatively?

    The shield on yourself is usually strong enough to cushion a blow without 2/2 Improved Shielding. The two talent points don't make that big of a difference (and you can't and shouldn't really be spamming them on cooldown). Realistically, you're probably better off going with the 2 points you picked up in Spell Warding (good catch on those), and keeping Mental Agility.

    To actually answer TC's question, yes, the damage reduction from Inner Sanctum and Shadowform stack, but they are multiplied, so in total you're reducing magic damage taken by (15% off 100% is 85%, and 4% of 85% is 3.4%, 3.4 + 15) 18.4%, instead of 19% if they were additive.
