Mitigation Calculations: When and Where?

Postby PtrN1026 » Sat Apr 25, 2009 4:52 am

Ok, us paladins are getting percentages off damage taken off left and right, and I am confused on when they get calculated.

Now, we have a base reduction based on armor: for me its 61% (ignoring devotion aura)

Then we have:

6% from Improved Righteous Fury
6% from Guardian of the Light
3% From BoS
and 3% from DP glyph.

Now, do all these stack directly on top of each other, reducing incoming damage by 79%? Or are they calculated in some form of staged calculations?

Melee: 1*(1-0,61)*(1-0,06)*(1-0,03)*(1-0,03)*(1-0,03)
Spell: 1*(1-0,06)*(1-0,03)*(1-0,03)*(1-0,03)*(1-0,06)

You can add *(1-0,03) on both lines, if you want to have Renewed Hope.

Renewed Hope does not stack with Blessing of Sanctuary as they are, for all intents and purposes, similar buffs. Much how Blessing of Might and Battle Shout do not stack.

They stack.
Yes and it is almost certainly unintended behavior much like current DivSac behavior. For now take advantage of it but don't expected it to last.

We do not know, although I'll say, that you are right. But for the moment they stack.

What is wrong with DivSac? Didn't notice any problems with it.

If you're immune to the damage being directed to you through HoP or DivSh then you will mitigate unlimited damage rather than 150% of your HP.

Well then, consider me better informed...though I'm pretty certain this is not intended due to the way pre-patch Grace worked with Blessing of Sanctuary.
