Macro Syntax

  • /ma "Reprisal" <me>


  • Increases Shield Skill by +15%.[1]. This value constantly updated as your skill from equipment changes, not at spell cast.[2]
  • Total damage reflected is 200% of maximum HP before the spell wears off.
  • Calculated before Phalanx, Stoneskin, Sentinel and Invincible (reflects damage proportionate to the amount you would have taken without them.)
  • Does not overwrite spike spells.
  • Overwritten by spike spells.
  • The damage is considered Light-elemental magic damage.
  • Bigger shields reflect more damage. Damage reflected appears to be 1/3 of the amount by which damage was reduced; further testing is still needed to corroborate.
  • Does not reflect damage from blocking physical-type TP moves.
  • Possible MND mod, like other Damage Spikes spells which have an INT mod on the proc. rate of the additional effect.
  • Under the effects of Sentinel, reflected damage seems to range from 95%-300%. Noted while using Iron Ram Shield. May require more experimentation with different shield sizes.
