When it comes to Fortify mechanics in Path of Exile, there are two key things to keep in mind: first, that Fortify is a buff that lasts for a short time after being applied, and second, that Fortify can be applied to multiple targets simultaneously. Let’s take a look at how these two factors come into play.
When Fortify is first applied, it will provide a brief period of invulnerability to the target, as well as a damage reduction buff. This invulnerability period lasts for two seconds, during which time the target cannot be harmed by any means. After the invulnerability period expires, the damage reduction buff will remain active for a further four seconds.
During the invulnerability period, any damage that would be dealt to the target will be instead be absorbed by the Fortify buff. This includes damage from both physical and magical sources. Once the invulnerability period expires, the damage reduction buff will begin to take effect, reducing all damage taken by 20%.
It’s important to note that the Fortify buff can be applied to multiple targets at the same time. When applied to multiple targets, the invulnerability period will last for two seconds, during which time no damage can be dealt to any of the targets. After the invulnerability period expires, the damage reduction buff will remain active on all targets for a further four seconds.
So, to summarise, the Fortify buff provides a brief period of invulnerability, as well as a damage reduction buff that lasts for a short time after the invulnerability period expires. Fortify can be applied to multiple targets simultaneously, providing the same benefits to all targets.
