    Yes, it is considered two completely different spells.. Same goes for any other proc. Stonewill I / II / II ... ext..

    Even procs with the same name stack to an extent.

    If you have X that has 30% chance of proccing, the first item will give you 30% chance, 2nd item will give you 51% chance, 3rd item will give you 65.7% chance, 4th will give you 76.13% chance (if my calculations are correct) etc.

    IF you have 2 procs of a different tier (i.e. I & II), neither are dependant on the other, and as such both could proc. Having more of 1 proc will increase the chance of it proccing, whereas having 2 of similar procs will have the same chance of proccing but BOTH COULD PROC AT THE SAME TIME. .

    Hope this helps!

    Also, and this doesn't apply to critical aegis, but for DD type procs, they fully stack.

    Like mystic havoc and undeniable malice for example, you can have three "Undeniable Malice I" items and have them all proc on the same attack.

    But yeah you're correct for buff type spells like critical aegis or stonewill, only one of each tier can be active at a time, but multiple of the same tier will increase proc rate and if one procs while its already active, it will refresh the spell.

    Okay, finding this thread using a search... I found it to be annoyingly misleading going towards false.

    Straight to the point, two different Critical Aegis buffs do not stack in a meaningful way. If you have two up at the same time, the lesser buff will have zero effect. That is not a common definition of stacking at all.

    Well, I haven't done much/any testing with stacking Critical Aegis...

    But I know that (as of 2 or 3 months ago when I quit) if you have Stonewill I, Stonewill II, and Stonewill III, they can all proc and be active at the same time, and as you take damage the wards are applied for all three.

    If different levels of stonewill stack, it seems like different levels of critical aegis and other similar buffs should stack as well.

    Aditu, this may be a stupid question, but have you personally tested this?
