Hey Iv'e been in active in game for few months and when I came back there was this upgrade to the "DeathBlock" keyword that added Negative energy absorption.
So I want to know if I'm in undead form does this effect get negated like "Death Ward" or you are getting reduced (negative)healing from it?

Yes, that kind of Deathblock did reduce PM healing when it was first introduced. And I suppose it still does.

Note that since players don't care about reducing a percentage of negative damage, the primary game effect of the new Deathblock is to make those items unsuitable for PMs.

My test on live prior to the update saw no difference (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/447643) in the absorption. Someone tested post update and also found no effect (https://www.ddo.com/forums/showthread.php/405017-Pale-Master-Guide?p=5441574&viewfull=1#post5441574).
