    I'm not really sure how much of a mitigation reduction was intended with the previous patch and resulting fix, but here goes the numbers again. Some data taken from my original post on 1/12/17.

    From, a grove guardian, mob prior to patch the morning of 1/11/17

    Tanking summary for: Triqs`s warder --- Total Melee --- Damage: 3639731 --- Avg hit: 5353 --- Attempts: 1125 --- Riposted: 18/1125 [1.6%] --- Parried: 24/1107 [2.17%] --- Dodged: 29/1083 [2.68%] --- Blocked: 49/1054 [4.65%] --- Defended: 120/1125 [10.67%] --- Missed: 86/1005 [8.56%] --- Hits: 919/1125 [81.69%] --- Absorbed: 239/919 [26.01%] --- Real Hits: 680/1125 [60.44%]

    From, a grove guardian, mob after patch the morning of 1/12/17

    Tanking summary for: Triqs`s warder --- Total Melee --- Damage: 19141359 --- Avg hit: 9580 --- Attempts: 2858 --- Riposted: 72/2858 [2.52%] --- Parried: 52/2786 [1.87%] --- Dodged: 72/2734 [2.63%] --- Blocked: 144/2662 [5.41%] --- Defended: 340/2858 [11.9%] --- Missed: 172/2518 [6.83%] --- Hits: 2346/2858 [82.09%] --- Absorbed: 348/2346 [14.83%] --- Real Hits: 1998/2858 [69.91%]

    From the exact same, a grove guardian, mob 1/20/17 immediately after the patch.

    Tanking summary for: Triqs`s warder --- Total Melee --- Damage: 5021870 --- Avg hit: 6200 --- Attempts: 1068 --- Riposted: 30/1068 [2.81%] --- Parried: 20/1038 [1.93%] --- Dodged: 20/1018 [1.96%] --- Blocked: 50/998 [5.01%] --- Defended: 120/1068 [11.24%] --- Missed: 72/948 [7.59%] --- Hits: 876/1068 [82.02%] --- Absorbed: 66/876 [7.53%] --- Real Hits: 810/1068 [75.84%]

    The average hits are still higher, I'm in the process of re-parsing the Companions Sturdiness AA to see if going from the TDS to the EoK AA (ranks 21-25 I believe) is still decreasing the warders ability to mitigate incoming damage. Its also bugging me that Real Hits: 680/1125 [60.44%] prior to 1/11/17 patch have gone to Real Hits: 810/1068 [75.84%] today, 1/20/17 after patch, leaving overall damage still considerably increased from 2 weeks ago.

    These are the results for a level 103 BST warder Spirit of Avalik with EM18 focus. Warder tank buffs Rk. II and Surity Rk. II. I probably forgot to take the cleric vie off prior to start too, so minus whatever that mitigates.

    Re-parsed the companions sturdiness aa up to TDS, it seemed to be working normally. Going from TDS to EOK ranks 22-25 it reduced the total average incoming damage on a Test One Hundred Three dummy by... wait for it... 2, so it does in fact now reduce incoming damage. I'm not going to go run an 8 hour parse to see if that is working correctly or doing anything at all, which is probably what it will take. My parses where 15 minutes long. If anyone else is up to it, by all means.

    This was ran on a level 103 Spirit of Avalik BST warder with EM18 focus, 0 buffs.

    Sorry about this next bit I couldn't help myself.

    Still not seeing it. This is a pretty big change for both mercenaries and pets, those are a couple of things that a lot of players rely on for their day to day grinds and whatnot instead of just playing their own tank class. I found out on accident and then ran hours of parsing to see exactly where they stood and tried to do my part by putting that info here in the forums. Outside of the ones that read the bug forums every day, those guys on live still aren't going to know about it. Even with the reversal of things on Test the patch pushed to live has some pretty significant changes in figures. Please be kind enough to put that in the patch notes.

    Not enough defended attacks. Plus total dmg taken vs attack attempts
