Both the scroll and the spell itself is set to Kunark.

Increases with instrument mod

The listed effect of 20 damage absord is what you get with no stringed instrument or resonance modifier equipped, as it is not required to play the song. However, like many bard songs, the effect on this will increase with the level of stringed resonance modifier equipped.

Based on my own tests:

Base (no instrument) - 20 damage absorb
Base instrument (String Resonance 10) - 40 damage absorb
Magic Instrument (String Resonance 14) - 48 damage absorb

It looks like 2 extra points of rune for every point of modifier. Since this and Nillipus' are the only songs that bards ever get with a rune effect I thought it was worth pointing out that with a good modifier (defiant plate vambraces if not better) this song can add up to a whole lot of mitigated damage.

when it says it absorbs damage, does that mean every burst of song it regenerates back? For example, you cast one burst of the song. Then you are hit for 30, of which 20 is absorbed. Then another burst of the song. Would this make another 20 absorbtion that you lost before?

IF you are keeping this song playing then that calculation would be correct. It seems to drop after it has absorbed the damage though. It is a great song though. I have been grouping with a 58 shaman since I got this song (most of the time he is our main healer) and he loves it. I twist this song, hymn of restoration, selo's chain, and haste of choice (haste is the one I drop if I need to drop one) and I keep a lute in my primary hand. During down time, I use this song and hymn for the shaman. With my lute the shamon knocks 40 points of damage taken off his cannibalize (I would assume this would work for a necro too) and has the regen effects of bear form, regrowth and my hp regen song. Adds up to hardly any hp loss per cannibalize and infinate mana for your shaman.

I've just learned this song tonight, but I think that absorb is no heal and expect that the behaviour is like that:

A is hit by 30, 20 during 1. tick and 50, 10 during second tick
B is hit by 20, 20 during first tick and 0 durig second tick
A,B in group

A suffers 10(30-20)+20+30(50-20)+10= 70 instead of 110 dmg
B suffers 0(20-20)+20= 20 instead of 40 dmg

My question is if this works on poison,...?
