This isn't any different from the Guardian Druid talent Brambles which was swiftly hotfixed. This will be too and the logs wiped, like normal.
easy fix is give holy shield a proc cd, doesnt have to be long. just short enough so it doesnt deal 124million damage in 15 seconds
Not Rextroy, for a change... :P
this late into the xpak just let fun reign free
honestly it doesnt matter anymore. smile
You linked the wrong Obsidian skin in the article. Maut casts spell=306070, not spell=316651. The one you linked is the corruption from the axe that drops from him :)
The fix that's live as of Sat 13th June 2020, is that Holy shield will still "block" obsidian skin, but won't deal damage as it usually does on just this 1 ability.
If I didnt get to have fun 6 hours after Nya launch (thats how fast it was hotfixed for guardian) then paladins shouldnt have fun either. /sI'm surprised how long it took them to fix this compared to druid. This has been a thing for paladin for a couple weeks now.
Couple of adjustments:
How does this not kill the Pally? Even if it's super low damage per reflect, like 1000 damage... 1000 times 11k reflects is still 11,000,000 damage
its probably due to the extremely amount of mastery and block chance that the incoming damage is significantly reduced. i checked the logs on one of these and the pally took 14 mill damage while doing 124 mill damage using holy shield.
Guess they could change it but not like Maut is hard at this point...
at blizzard basement..."FFS can those ppl keep do WQs and kill raids like pugs do...."
If people go through THAT much just to test out and prove a theory, let them have their fun. Their fun doesnt impact my fun. Let them eat cake.
