Hearing paladin take SOO much dmg than the warrior by 4 % can be discouraging when you are argueing with naysayers.


You guys are really making this far too complicated. Here is a far simpler explaination.

A boss swings. He hits a warrior. He does 1000 damage.

A boss swings. He hits a paladin with the same armor and block value. He does 1044 damage.

absolute, relative, existential, rhetorical, whatever, those are how the numbers would work out in-game.

Do pallies take "more damage"? Yes. Should it have an impact on the fight? No.

Now this is what I disagree with, why are we comparing one to eachother in an isolated way?

And why is comparing the difference between those two, using a hypothetical hit, meaningless?

Saying warrior is only mitigating 160 dmg more of that 10k hit then the paladin is more correct imo. It cant be more true then that.

It's meaningless because the actual damage you take, and thus deducts from your HP, and thus needs to be healed, is always mitigated. This means that people standing around watching your lifebar go up and down, and then consequently watching a Warrior's lifebar go up and down, will see a 4% difference between the two. Not a 1-2% difference. Because they are not seeing the unmitigated hit, only the difference between what you take, and what the warrior takes.
