Mechanics

The Mind Over Matter mod has the same effect as the keystone, Mind Over Matter. Taking the keystone in addition to equipping this item will impart no additional benefit.

The 10% of Damage is taken from Mana before Life is additive with other Mind Over Matter modifiers where appropriate, and provides the Mana before Life defensive technique.

The 1% of Mana Regenerated per second mod is scaled by X% increased Mana Regeneration Rate modifiers. See Mana.
