SS and scaling with a stat?

Postby l3gndary » Wed Apr 29, 2009 7:02 pm

Hello all, So today I decided to go and solo all of the 5 man quests in Icecrown (very easly soloable as prot and good gear just some fyi) and I was using SS of course. I specd into improved SS for the xtra time and increased % absorption. Well i scrolled thru my combat log after killing a 82 Elite mob and looked to see how much it had absorbed. On multiple occurances it absorbed as much as 1k+ dmg. The description says it only can absorb 600 dmg.

Basically as the title asks, Is there a stat that SS secretly scales with? Str, or health or anything of the sorts? Or does it just absorb the attack your being hit with no matter what? (w\ in reason of course, not like 5k hits from bosses).

Very curious about this so if anyone knows the answer that be awesome to know as well XD. [Fail, my sig hasnt been updated. I have much better stats then those now]

Specifically, the shield absorbs 500 + 75% of your spellpower, before DG's increase.
(My own DG shield absorbs 1214 (was curious and tested with the elites on Corprethar.)

It's basically like an extra block (on top of your normal block) every 6 seconds per shield. Not bad at all.

It's awesome for doing quests and heroics because the shield stays up until the whole amount is absorbed, which easily starts being most of the damage you take. It's after block too.

We only have 1 holy pally raiding with us, and I have imp SS, so he just keeps SS on the OT and I keep it on myself... absorbs about 1500 dmg (I think) fully raid buffed... maybe more, every 6 secs.

Imp SS (through Divine Guardian) stacks with regular SS on the same target.
