Deflect Reaction Clarifications

Making sure that I haven't been misreading Deflect for a while.

Deflect - R - When you would be dealt damage, you may deal damage to another nearby target equal to the amount reduced by your Armored ability.

- First Question: Does Deflect deal damage equal to the amount that was dealt, or the amount stopped by Armored?

- Second Question: If one has multiple Armored-like abilities (Powered Suit's Damage Reduction), do they all count for the amount of damage reduced by Armored?

I've been assuming that Deflect deals damage equal to the amount stopped by Armored, and that multiple Armored-like abilities stack for purposes of damage dealt by Deflect.

If someone could clarify this, I would be grateful.

It calls out specifically the Armored ability and any other DR from other abilities wouldn’t apply.   The damage you deal is equal to what was reduced by the Armored ability so at most it’s 3 damage.

Thanks! Good to know that I was messing that up.
