Fiend's Flesh

Two questions.

The description for Fiend’s Flesh says it protects “you and your minions” but it doesn’t really list a pet bonus. Is this a shared absorption between player and summons or just flavor text?

Second question, can other “when hit” procs still proc when you have absorption up?

Not sure about the first but yes for the second.

In testing I had both fiend’s flesh shoulders + boots and could have both procs happen giving me 2 shields. Not sure which one took precedence before the other though or if they both negated at the same time.

edit: I’ll check about the first now.

Nah it seems like the boot version at least is just a shield for you not your minions.

Much appreciated and I look forward to your test results.
