Danger Danger, Avenging Wrath Bugged!

Postby Pallypete » Fri Oct 31, 2008 8:22 pm

I logged on tonight and discovered that for some reason I had the divine guardian buff on myself without being bubbled. So I tested some stuff out, if you bubble it pops up and then it fades when the bubble drops, but if you pop wings it now invokes divine guardian (meaning we take 30% of raid damage) and DOESN'T go away when wings fade. That could suck in a raid.

Just confirmed by popping wings (didn't even have to bubble, although I did about 10min ago in between reading threads; oddly, my foreberance only lasted 2min). Anyways, popped Wings and got the DG buff.

Which is probably a good reason why a main tank build doesn't include divine guardian.

Meh, I took it cause it's not like we have to be "perfect" specced right now, and it's got some fun uses on one-tank fights like Naj'entus. But taking around 75k to the dome after popping wings in that fight doesn't sound like much fun. >.<

Well it's a good thing I'm not a "main-tank," 'cause our shitty-attitude Warrior still has the spot...for now.

Issue =\= how people spec.

Issue = bugged talent.

I wouldn't normally spec DG, but I am for KJ. It's situationally useful, and paladins who OT and are happy with being OT will probably love it.

I would bet money this is because they hotfixed AW to cause forebearance.

Check to see if shield wall, er Divine Protection does it.

I'm guessing putting AW back onto the list for forebearance messed up how that talent works with AW.


When forebearance activated: check for Divine guardian buff. If divine protection: do not add buff.

somewhere in the code I bet this is in there in some form.
AW was taken off the list of forebearance so it never was added to the exception list.

Divine protection doesn't make it go off, only Avenging Wrath (and Divine Shield obviously).

That pretty much nails it to being an exception for the talent. AW was not added to the list.

thats incorrect mortehl, for now theres only 2 other areas, imp hoj and reckoning, the amazing usage of divine guardian helps with main tanking, especially when i was learning BB fight, DG=win, even when im "main tanking"


oh yes, make a macro that say /cast avenging wrath /cancelaura Divine Guardian and your fine

At 80 I would definitely choose the situational utility of DG over 2 points of SotP/HoJ/Reck.

This is a pretty funny bug though. I don't get how Spirit Bolts all hitting the paladin for 30% is a good thing, that means the paladin is taking in like 4k DPS...

Good. I've been raising a stink w/Blizzard since they told me it was not a bug, but intended behavior.
