    Default Are bleeds mitigated by armor?

    Bleeds like Jagged strike or Puncture or are bleeds considered Physical Damage and mitigated my armor?

    Apparently yes, i've seen them getting blocked as well, which makes no sense.

    As far as I know, bleed effects themselves are not mitigated by armor. However, the damage bleed effects ultimately do is often linked to the damage of the abilities that causes them (for Physical attacks). So, by mitigating the damage of the original ability, for example Savage Strike (with Serrated Blades in the rogue Assassin tree), you can mitigate the subsequent bleed damage. Also, in reference to the above poster, the ability that causes a bleed can be missed/dodged, but not the bleed damage itself.

    Hope that helps. If I am wrong, please feel free to contradict me. ;]
