As we now, elite monsters with the "Health Link" skill share part of the damage they receive with the rest of the monsters in their group.
Then there is also the "Shielding" skill, which makes the monsters immune to all damage for a short period of time.
With these two concepts clear, I have the following questions:
- What happens if a monster shielding itself (and with the "Health Link") is attacked? Will all damage (for all monsters) ignored or will only that monster not receive damage?
- If a monster with the "Health Link" skill receives damage and sends part of it to another one protecting himself with a shield, will this second monster receive any damage? Will it be shared at all?
In a similar fashion, the "Blood Clan Sorcerers" have the ability to cast a damage reduction shield. If a pack of these monsters has the "Health Link" skill and, say, all of them have a damage reduction shield except for one...
- Does it make a difference which monster you attack? If you attack a protected monster, will all the damage get reduced and then shared or the other way round?.
EDIT: As fbueckert and Adeese correctly mention, "Health Link" and "Shielding" cannot appear together in the same pack. The question about the "blood Clan Sorcerers", however, remains valid.
