Please unconfuse me about the Divine Protection Glyph

Postby inthedrops » Thu Jan 13, 2011 8:17 pm

I know it's bugged. But I'm confused on the current state.

* I understand it's impacting GoAK incorrectly. What exactly is it doing to it?
* Is it at least doing it's intended job for Divine Protection? (increasing magic reduction by 20% at the loss of physical)

Thanks for setting me straight. I'm trying to figure out some hard mode fights and realized that I don't know the facts here.

It's current state, as far as I'm aware:

-They fixed the bug that was preventing it from reducing the physical mitigation to 0%.
-In doing so, they apparently added a bug that causes it to reduce GAnK's physical mitigation by 20% as well.
-I have no idea if it also increases GAnK's magic mitigation or not, but I assume not. It would be pretty simple to test if you duel another paladin and let them beat on you with SoT for a while. Get damage taken for a 5-stack of Censure before and after GAnK, with and without the glyph.

So now, glyphing DP converts DP to a 40% magic, 0% physical cooldown, and GAnK to a 50% magic / 30% physical cooldown.

Has this now been fixed or does it still have a negative hit to GoAK?

According to Treckie, it has been fixed.

Meaning if you wanna reduce the physical dmg slightly, AD, if you dont wanna die the next 18sec, use guardian.
