RoBF vs GA (in General)

A question to hear some opinions: why isn't RoBF damage returned with GA? It seems a bit strange to me.

I suppose its because RoBF is a rune, and the damage it deals comes from the rune as its source. I suppose because it has no HP to lose, GA can't counter it.

I don't think retaliation damage goes for RBF because it's not physical, however, I am not very sure if it is or not.

It is a "new" type of damage.

Not vulnerable to AMF, MgS or GA.

Get used to it :)

I hates it! The precious does too!

The damage type from the RoBF is... RoBF

I can understand AMF and MgS, but not GA. After all, GA should return all damage, dealing damage of the same type.
Maybe Solare is right though, but it's still strange. As it's not an aura, and linked to one minion, GA should have a valid target.

Well, if you want to damage an inanimate object....

With the new percentage to the RoBF magic reduction, this is all the Rune has going for it anymore. "perfect damage"
