As before, we thank you for the good feedback.
The Nighthold has put a spotlight on magic mitigation more than previous raids, and we've seen how that resulted in Protection Warriors (who are typically a very well-rounded tank spec) falling a bit behind other tanks as a result.
Today's new 7.2 PTR build includes the following change:Warrior
- Gleaming Scales (Artifact Trait) increases magical damage reduction by 20%.
is a new Artifact Trait that's coming in 7.2, and the intention here is to provide Warrior
s with a way to keep up with incoming spells in encounters that are magic-heavy, such as Spell Augur Etraeus or Krosus
in The Nighthold
We're also testing a new change to the Protection Legendary belt Thundergod's Vigor
that triples the rate at which your Thunder Clap
s reduce the cooldown on Demoralizing Shout
We continue to analyze and consider everything you're telling us here (and elsewhere!), so keep it coming. Thank you!
Hi Kaivax, thank you for the update, but does this mean that the original effect of Gleaming Scales (+5s for Spell Reflect) has been replaced with this new effect, or are they combined?
