Shield Wall Stacking

Postby Chevy » Sat Apr 18, 2009 11:37 am

Hey guys,

This might be a stupid question - I couldn't find the answer searching for it though. I was under the impression, perhaps incorrectly, that shield all effects stacked - but it doesn't seem to be the case.

If I have Divine Protection, Pain Suppression, and Hand of Sacrafice from another paladin up on me, I should take 0% damage from all sources correct - at least until the Sacrafice gets all of it's damage absorbed.

They stack multiplicatively. With those three effects you'd take: 0.5*0.6*0.7 = 21% damage.

Add a talented divine Sacrifice (with bubble so it isn't limited by HP - I think), and make the HoS talented and you get

.5 * .6 * .6 * .6 = 0.108

10.8% damage taken. Have someone Imp LoH you and you have an additional 50% armor : P

Your math is wrong. It should be:

.5 (DP) * .6 (Pain Sup) * .7 (HoSac) * .6 (DG-DSac) * .8 (HoSalv) = 10.08% damage taken

Incidentally, I'm not sure whether HoSac and DSac stack as they essentially are meant to do the same thing, just on a different scale. Has anyone tested this?

Tried just once so i cant say for sure,but seems HoSacr effect is overwritten by DSacr one/not applied if DSacr is already up
