    I am uncertain if this is a bug. Some clarification would be appreciated.

    After some testing, it appears that damage from armor ignore is not reflected with Reflect Physical Damage. An actual hit with armor ignore will send 35 damage to the defender but 0 damage is sent back to the attacker. I've tested a few other special moves; crushing blow appears to reflect correctly. Concussion blow will reflect one part of the damage, but not the second part. Bleed attack's bleed effect does not reflect anything.

    Is this intended? In a past post, Misk stated that reflect physical damage is "A percentage of the damage inflicted will be reflected back at the attacker when a player wearing reflect physical damage equipment is truck by any non-magical attack that inflicts physical damage." Does Armor Ignore and the rest constitute a "magical attack"? Or is this a bug? I can find no other information on this question.

    Nope its meant to be like that, rpd reflects physical damage, if the weapon is 100poison damage, rpd will not reflect anything for example. And AI ignores armor so ur not basically doing any physical damage, its ignoring the armor, thats why its not supposed to be making any damage

    I still think that RPD should reflect bombard and spell plague when physical is proc'ed from the chaos random damage

    this is more of a problem of the description of the mod maybe, perhaps it should be called 'reflect physical melee damage'?
