-> Mental Blow sometimes doesnt apply Intuition effect on me when I hit an enemy. Sometimes I must try several times, but once I get the Intuition effect, the enemy is already almost dead LoL

 

-> Blood shield, tooltip is a bit confusing and the skill itself may be broken. This is what it says:

At first sight, what I understand here is that I will get a shield that lasts 20 seconds or until absorbed 1235 damage.

Once it banishes, I will be healed by an amount equal to half of the damage absorbed, 617 in my case.

Also, while shield is active, damage done by my skills and basic attack will grant me health equal to 5% of the damage done.

And finally, 25% of damage done to me will be absorbed by the shield.

So basically, something like the old shield: get damage and then heals you

 

But actually, what the shield does is something different. For each enemy attack, the shield (Solid Shield buff) will absorb 25% of that damage, and then, half of this absorbed damage will be granted to me as health.

So, if a monster hits me for 100, the shield will absorb 25 damage, and it will heal me for 12.5

 

But unluckily, this is bugged and I don't get my 12.5 health points.

Look at this:

Pincerhorn hit me for 125 damage. 25% of that damage should be absorbed by Blood Shield, which is 31.25 damage. Then, half of that damage will be healed to me, which should be 15.62.

But the shield only gave me 3 health. Where are the other 12.62 health?

Actually the 125 dmg he did is the result of -25% of the damage he would do to you, so the shield absorbed X.

If you put 125 as 75% of the real dmg, we have the full dmg as 166, with the shield absorbing 25% = 41.5 dmg absorbed. You should've get 20.75 hp back.

However, Seeing  the screenshot here i can see that you healed 3 before taking the 125 dmg, so i guess the shield was already gone and the 125 is the full dmg.

Absorb is not damage reduction, redirection or sharing. It means that from the total damage, the shield will receive a x%, but the character will still receive the totality of the damage.

The same happens with the Wandering Spirit. 12% of the damage you get is absorbed by him. You still receive the same damage, but he loses health, and thus, he lasts less.

This "buff" is Absorb, NOT Strong Shield (which effectively reduces dmg by a x%, like Mages' Healing Shield)

 

If someone hit me for 1000, my character health will go down by 1000 and the shield (25% absorb) will receive 250 damage.

Then, half of that absorbed damage is supposed to heal me (125 dmg).

In  that screenshot the shield was up and running. If you look closely, the healing always happens BEFORE the damage is dealt to me. When the monster misses,, the healing also triggers before missing, healing me by 0. The last healing, comes from the last attack in that screenshot because 3 healing can't come from a missed attack.

 

BTW, i did some tests with a friend, and it doesn't work as it is supposed to work.

 

My friend hit me for around 800 dmg both with and without shield, and the shield kept healing me for ~15 damage, when it should be ~100.

I thought it was working like the Healing  Shield from sorcerers, my mistake.

 

Send a ticket to the support team and if possible attach screenshots or a video showing the problem, they'll know better.

Mental Blow is not a skill from warlocks only.

Mental Blow is a skill from general mages.

 

I have tested Mental Blow on several monsters and the only time Intuition did not activate was every time I missed the target.

 

I'm not calling you a liar but it doesn't happen for me like it seems to happe for you.
