We’re gathering some data on how the now-implemented shield for DK tanks works, in this thread.
Most interesting is that the buff can get to 102% of your heal, at least. Previously we established that the full value of the death strike is used for the barrier value, whether it was overhealed or not.
Insolence has posted a WoL analysis of general questing, which lets us see some of absorb values.
This week, I may not editorialise in much detail, and instead provide links into the forums where discussion is happening. I expect we’ll see a lot of data on tanking in the current beta iteration.
