Shield of the Righteous should no longer incorrectly provide a greater than intended reduction to physical damage taken after refreshing the ability.
So this change went in yesterday and I noticed a significant difference in the SotR buff but was unable to nail down what the change really was. How exactly does this mechanic work now?
From what I am seeing, if I use Holy Avenger and Pol's trinket at the same time to get a huge mastery buff I can get my SotR buff to ~70% for ~10 seconds. However as soon as Pol's trinket buff is gone, if I cast another SotR, the whole 10 seconds of the stack got reduced to 40%. Is this actually what is happening? Or does the buff immediately drop from 70% to 40% when the mastery buff goes away.
Also, with the Seraphim rotation a big hunk of reduction comes from casting SotR right before Sera runs off and extending the empowered buff with a second cast 2 seconds after Sera runs off. Is this irrelevant now?
If it is functioning either of these ways, that seems like bogus and a huge nerf.
If it is not, how does it work now?
