Confused on Mage Shield (in General)

From the Wiki:
"Plus 0.75% resistance to Direct Damage Spells for each point of enchantment."
So, I've put a +29 MgS on my PL minion, expecting a 21% reduction in FB damage, but:

"grrrrrrrrr's Fireball hit GiiOuuuut for no damage".

Don't get me wrong - I like this :-)

I'm just a tad confused as to why?

It also has a small flat magic resistance. So if you have a large Mgs or they have a very weak skill then it won't do any damage.

k - Cheers EoD, that kinda explains it. Although since he was hitting me for ~2000 before I equipped, the flat rate is not so small...

True. I have a 50+ one and it blocked everyone MM till about 100k score. Was quite fun :).
