I had a drain soul tick absorbed earlier by a paladin with sacred shield on. Call me crazy, but that's not fair. It was with elements and all my dots - straight absorb. Can someone actually give me numbers for how much sacred shield ACTUALLY absorbs for a geared holy paladin?

Now, I know that it's 500 + 75% of your spell power + 10% for divine guardian. But that would equal 4k, MAX, right? But it FEELS like more than that.

If a % mitigation CD, sac, or another shield was up, it would effectively shield a lot more. And it's possible you caught them above 20%.

I think it scales somewhat near the amount of spell power they have so 1:1 might be a little off. But a pally with 3k + SP will absorb around the same I'm pretty sure.

very indeed

mage shatters can hit for up to 7-8k, and I've seen full envenoms absorbed, with the white & poison proccs before and after, so let me doubt very much it's 3,3k.
I've seen full frostbolts absorbed too, so... I doubt that formula is right
5-6k seems right nubmer for me ( the shield can procc each 6 seconds ). don't forget FOL hot too, so it & fol hot pretty much > everything if not dispeled.

It's actually something like that. Tested with rain of fire today on a camping war/pally, absorbed two full tics for about 1400 each and then 200 from the next one. One of them might have crited, but it's but much over 3k absorb.

LOL YOU GUYS ARE RETARDED

75% OF PALLY'S SPELLPOWER + 500 ( 600 WHEN IMPROVED DIVINE SACRIFICE )

TSG shouldn't win against an equally skilled LSD but 99% of all LSDs are super retarded so it's quite easy to zerg the druid from start to finish.

what i don't like about it even more.. it has such a long duration for such a powerfull absorbspell.. instant - no cooldown - no anything >_<

sure it can get purged, but it's still a no-brainer =/

It can trigger a proc, and then while that shield is up, have another proc triggered if the first isn't torn through yet after the 6 seconds, so you will sometimes think it absorbed ~6.5k when it was just two 3.2ks

yes because its really hard to type " www.google.ch" " sacred shield absorb % " and to see how many dmg it does absorb.

ps : actually, i have around 3734 spellpower, it absorbs exactly 3400.5 dmg each 6 seconds ( ps : http://www.sk-gaming.../heal/resi/800/, i HIGHLY doubt any pally has enough spellpower to absorb 7k... come on guys, you're still dreaming).

rofl you euro. wtf is .ch??? it's .com! Also, I wonder if people know that it procs AFTER you get hit by that 6k envenom. or after you take a shatter combo.. it doesn't proc until after you get hit
