Incanter's Absorption is a Mage talent in the Arcane tree. When you absorb damage with [Mana Shield] or [Mage Ward], this talent turns a percentage of that damage into spell power, placing a buff on you. Also when [Mana Shield] is destroyed enemies within 6 yards are knocked back 12 yards.

Notes

This talent is very usefull on fights with static aura (especially arcane/fire/frost) which deals damage to player like Sindragosa. At 80 level with 250 ilvl gear [Mana Shield] and [Mage Ward] absorbs about 4000k. With simple math [(2*4000)*0,2]=[8000*0,2]=1600 You get 1600 bonus spell power for 10 seconds! Also with recent changes in Patch 4.0.1, which added knockback effect this talent it's much more useful in PvP environment.
