Character SynergiesEdit

  • Depending on how a character is built, one should be careful when building the character as a pure tank; it can save the tank's life, but it will also lose crowd control and harder for enemies to get killed, especially for melee tanks.

Item SynergiesEdit

  • Old Box works very well with Fire Shield, as both nearly has the same amount of proc conditions.


Note that the requirement for this to be activated does NOT actual require you to fall to low health; all you have to do is take a large amount of damage, similar to the Fire Shield.
