    Alphaine (Gyzarus) and I did more testing on this. In a PvP test, sometimes this skill gives Physical Damage, sometimes it gives Magic/Elemental Damage. We tested it by having Alphaine attack me while I was using Death Shield, which converts a percentage of incoming physical damage into a heal.

    Sometimes I received a heal when attacked with Splintering Strike, some times I did not. We tested this at multiple stack sizes (1 stack of splintering strike, 2 stack, 6 stack) and all stack sizes were observed to behave at random. Sometimes physical damage (death shield gave a heal) sometimes elemental damage (no heal from death shield).

    Is this an intended mechanism? And if so, is it only for PvP? In PvE the Splintering Strike combo seems to always deal elemental damage.

    No where does it state it does any magical damage, it states only physical:

    Splintering strike doesnt do any magic damage. But since its a combo skill from physical and earth, its counted against the magic resistance of the enemy.
    What you see in the skill stats is what you get

    Removed the magic damage count. But the physical damage of splintering strike will be lowered a tiny bit due to the new math (5-10 dmg diff or so at 160 skills)

    Were you able to replicate it sometimes sometimes prompting the heal from Death Shield and other times not?

    No, that must be something else? I only see a physical damage from the skill
