Gas trap test

I found a gas trap, so I decided to do some testing.

Firstly, without any protection at all:

There is a loud hissing noise.  You choke on poison gas.
{-873 HP} 

Casting HEB with all methods maxed and with one yellow crystal:

There is a loud hissing noise.  You choke on poison gas.
{-419 HP}

There seems to be a reduction of damage, but not blocking entirely like TPA. Further testing:

Casting with one more crystal after already having cast with one crystal first:

There is a loud hissing noise.  You choke on poison gas.
{-245 HP} 

So does that mean that the shield strengthens with each additional cast? Let's try casting on two more additional crystals while having the first two-crystal shield active:

There is a loud hissing noise.  You choke on poison gas.
{-325 HP} 

And I'm out of crystals. So far, inconclusive on whether the shield actually gets stronger or if the trap gives very random damage. It may be that HEB has a cap on two or three crystals per element as well.

Further research needed!
