That thorns reflect is seriously making me rethink my build a tad.. Stack thorns on WD and use the passive that gives it to summons. I mean if a trash mob in inferno hits for 17k and you reflect 2000% thats well over 300k (this is rough estimate). Hopefully stacking thorns is a viable way to make summons inferno useful.
I'm pretty sure they're meant to be a solid number. 2000% thorns would be ridiculous.
2000 seems too low though. if you look at it 2000% is only the most elite of gear so maybe its not so farfetched. If you look it starts off pretty low and ramps up quickly through the last three tiers (the inferno ones). I know in the beta it was a flat amount (reflects 4-6 damage) but I know that you could also solo SK wearing only thorns gear so I am not sure if it means your/their dps + 4-6 or just 4-6. Guess we'll find out in 3 days.
EDIT: rethinking I think since the way it is worded (Attackers take +x damage) That it takes their damage and adds on however much then reflects that. So endgame it would take that 17k + 2000 making it 19k. Still a decent way to make your dogs/garg do more than the 9% or 15% of weapon damage (unless your damage is so high that 9% is 19k).
