PL bug or is this normal? (in General)

Angel of Death [Hell Blenders] March 28 2006 7:54 AM EST

The SoulStalker takes damage from his own Fireball (78608)!
The SoulStalker's Fireball hit Pitr [117911], Dust Puppy [34254], Stef [98093]
Stef absorbs damage [20000]
Stef absorbs damage [20000]

like you see Stef absorbs 2 times hp when i only hit him once, is this a bug and if its not can someone explain why its not?

Stef has a PL of 10,000.

He's absorbing 20,000 of damage through PL from both Pitr and Dust Puppy.

He absorbed damage once for Pitr and once again for Dust Puppy. There is no point for him to absorb damage directed at him. Hence why he absorbed damage twice and not once or thrice.

yes, completely normal.

PL absorbs HP delivered to other minions so Stef absorbed 20k HP from the other 2 minions in his party.

The point of PL is to absorb other's damage...

tought pl only worked on the char that learned it and only absorbed damage done to him not others
misunderstood again :(

What would the point of having the skill be then?
He gets hit and takes the damage therefore already absorbing it, then takes some of the attention from the other minions, reading changelog entries is recommended before making assumptions.
