It is reported that the formula for determining how much damage is absorbed is:

$ F=\left\{\begin{array}{ll} X & \text{if $X < 80$}\\ 2X-60 & \text{if $80 \leq X \leq 130$}\\ 3X-190 & \text{if $X > 130$} \end{array}\right. $
where $ X = \frac{\text{Enhancing Magic Skill}}3 + \text{MND} $
The damage absorbed is capped at 350 damage.
