Reactive effects are effects which are triggered by specific events, most often by hits or blocks.

There are two different types of reactive effects:

  • Damage shields: These have a 100% chance to proc, but can only be triggered by melee attacks. The damage is not considered spell damage.
  • Reactive procs: These do not necessarily trigger off every attack. However, they are not limited to melee attacks (unless specifically mentioned otherwise). The damage inflicted is considered spell damage.
