Dev build/Linux: spell reflection item works against own spells on caster

Post by pango » Wed May 15, 2019 9:22 pm

I created a shield with spell reflection on it, very useful against high level spellcasters.
But I just noticed that when I try to cast Cure Poison on myself while wearing that shield, the spell gets reflected.

If everything goes according to logic it shouldn't matter, even if the message looks a bit silly.
But I couldn't reproduce that message on classic (didn't try very hard, but still), so this should probably be considered a bug.
I hope spell absorption and spell resistance are also bypassed for spells on caster...

Self-cast spell bundles will bypass resistance and absorption. Seems I forgot to include item-based reflection in there. Thanks for letting me know.
