    - Buffs that absorb hits (up to a maximum damage value) will no longer fully negate resistible spells. These buffs will continue to properly block the intended amount of damage from spell and melee attacks.

    Seems like the buff no longer blocks anything and lets full damage through.

    didnt notice anything out of the ordinary during tonights raids

    i also just tested it against the combat dummy a few seconds ago b/c i was to lazy to leave guild hall (stood infront of him to take ripo hits) and it absorb 7 ripost hits b4 impenetrable effect 3 faded

    also just dueled my shaman in the guild hall and it blocked 7 nukes b4 it faded. so should be working fine =P

    I believe it is referring to shielding spells with a stated amount that it absorbs. Anything that says it absorbs x hits will still absorb those hits as normal

    The problem I was having was during the Aalishai raid. It didnt seem to block repercussion or stipulation of flames, or the wildfire explosions. I used to be able to hit earthforce then run in at max melee and be fine, sometimes lasting untill refresh. Ill have to test it again next week i guess.
