Bug or intentional ? Overall I dont think it's that significant but considering how we keep getting dicked over by absorb shields 1 way or another wether it be furious attacks not procing off them or not getting rage from them. Now the biggest change in 3.1 to increase our dps doesnt even proc off them, what a fluke.

That was the same justification for white attacks on shields not generating rage. Sometimes a mechanic needs to be changed despite the change not matching the wording, for balance purposes.

Exactly; in terms of what is more important, balanced mechanics are easily higher on the agenda than talent wording. I wouldn't be surprised if this was unintended but won't be reverted through laziness under the guise of being an intended drawback for Warriors vs. shields.

It still is dealing damage... it's dealing damage to the absorb shield.

while that makes sense logically, thats not how the game mechanics defines "dealing damage".

It probably was unintended and is a relic of all of these other shield related problems, but I don't expect it will be fixed for a very long time.

Warrs will be one of the best classes next patch regardless, so it won't be a priority for them to fix it.

Like I said, it's not gonna make extreme differences but after all that I've had to endure this season with 21-25k armor targets having sacred shield procs, just the thought of all the rng situations where my overpower is delayed because my rend is ticking on an absorb shield kind of ticked me off. I was just putting it out there because for the past week of periodic logging on the test realm, I didnt even realise this untill today when I dueled this priest a few times. I was like 'you gotta be f'n kidding'.

I sent in a bug report for what it's worth.

I really hope blizzard does something about this. because the Impossibleness of cleave to beat any comp, really, is just an excruciating process that involves immense skill and luck. Buff warriors death knights and pallys, nerf mages and rogues.

Its not reallly RNG... rend ticks are predicatable, and casting sacred shield to stop them seems like a valid strategy.

Yes, it sucks for "us".. but at least its skill based.
