Suppose you have an animated guardian wielding Sign of the Sin eater standing nearby you, and you get hit by a damage that would cause shock or chill. Whose max life pool would it use to calculate the magnitude of the effect of chill/shock?

The animated guardian's.

Does your Animated Guardian get Avatar of Fire if equiped with Vulconus?


If I have Minion Instability and my Animated Guardian reaches low life, do his exploding item's stats add to the damage of the explosion? For example: if Animated Guardian is wearing "Starkonja's Head" does "50% reduced Damage when on Low Life" apply to the damage of the Minion Instability explosion?

Currently no because this is bugged - the stats are not able to update before the explosion happens. This has been fixed locally for a future patch.
