If you have a Focus Buffer on you and also the Barrier Idol buff, then you get, say, shot by a lvl 3 silver bullet, which of the two blocks it first, Focus Buffer or Barrier Idol?

Tested in practice mode.

Trial One: Focus Buffer cast first, Barrier Idol cast second; Witch Slayer level 3 Silver Bullet cast on The Chipper.

Results: Focus Buffer removed, Barrier Idol remained active.


Trial Two: Barrier Idol cast first, Focus Buffer cast second; Witch Slayer level 3 Silver Bullet cast on The Chipper

Results: Barrier Idol removed, Focus Buffer remained active.

Conclusion: Whichever form of shield is cast first will take the damage first.

Oh. Thanks for testing.

Though wouldn't it be more logical if the last one applied be the first to go? It's like getting shot with a flack jacket on. The jacket gets hit and not your shirt inside. Hahaha. Just a though.

though you would want the first activated shield to be used, because it may run out of time sooner :)
though this would wreck you and your t-shirt (or ahve you any high-tech kevlar t-shirt :D )

I had an excess of free time.

Also, testing would have been faster than thinking "Hmm I wonder if anyone has does this before; I should search for it."
