4.1 Rebuke can't miss but.. can it still be Blocked?

Postby angelflavor » Mon Mar 07, 2011 10:45 am

Last night raid I tried to interrupt a mob and didn't miss, instead it was Blocked. This prevented the mob from being interrupted. So will we still need expertise, or it this change to rebuke making it more like taunt?

Rebuke and expertise

It can only currently be blocked if the target is not casting.

Code: Select all
[18:19:47.082] Spirit of Corehammer begins to cast Chain Lightning
[18:19:47.629] Spirit of Corehammer's Thunderclap fades from Gregcity
[18:19:47.786] Angelflavor casts Rebuke on Spirit of Corehammer
[18:19:47.786] Angelflavor Rebuke Spirit of Corehammer Block
[18:19:48.270] Spirit of Corehammer Chain Lightning Gigantum 36354 (R: 4488)
[18:19:48.270] Spirit of Corehammer Chain Lightning Mcdouche 28810 (R: 7203)
[18:19:48.270] Spirit of Corehammer Chain Lightning Angelflavor 24739 (R: 3054)
[18:19:48.270] Spirit of Corehammer Chain Lightning Gregcity 20565 (A: 2202, R: 2663)


Chain Lightning has a 0.5 second cast time. With CoT would be 0.65. On the logs your Rebuke came 0.704 seconds after the cast start so was able to be blocked.

Alright make me feel better that it's my own lag that made it look it was blocked, instead of needing expertise.

Pretty sure expertise wouldn't affect block anyway...
