Aspect of the Deflecting Barrier (How to Get, Location & Effects): Diablo 4

Barriers are one of the best ways to improve your chances of survival when facing group enemies or going head-on with an elite or boss enemy.

There are multiple ways for you to create a Barrier, which are mostly by using Aspects or skills and this can lead to an even better benefit.

Aspect of the Deflecting Barriers can make any Barrier that you have to gain a chance to completely prevent certain ranged attacks from hitting you.

Aspect of the Deflecting Barrier Effects (Barrier Aspect)

With Aspect of the Deflecting Barrier imprinted on one of your items, you gain a chance based on a percentage to ignore incoming direct damage from distant enemies.

This means that once you have any type of Barrier active, there will be a chance for the attack to not deal any damage or disrupt you.

This chance for this to happen will only be when a Barrier is active, which can be triggered by Aspects or when you use skills that create a Barrier.
