    Mirror of Broken Images still work? (H-Elegon)

    Does the Tol Barad spell resistance trinket still work? I know they removed spell resistance from the game, but the trinket still shows it boosting resist, and I hear that it does indeed still reduce the respective magical damage.

    I'm just wondering, since it may be useful for heroic Elegon, where some raid members must take massive arcane damage from annihilation.

    Anyone know?

    The resistance granted from the trinket at level 90 is pitifully small. Stat scaling, bro.

    I asked a lvl 90 priest to spam mind spike on me. The mirror mitigated 30-40% of the damage. Granted, you pretty much give up a trinket slot for it, but perhaps it's something to keep in mind?

    Actually no it's not.

    It does scale down, but not as much as you would think. We only gained 5 levels, so the impact of the trinket on heavily elemental influenced fights is still rather high.

    Elegon isn't a fight I'd be using it on. Use classes with heavy damage reductions to soak the annihilations.

    Etc etc. A shame stamina is so good and mastery utterly useless for that fight (I reforged it to crit in fact), because the trinket still kick ass for 100% magic figths. 2 years and the trinket it's still good, best rep grind ever.

    It's actually better than it was on CATA

    50% ~ 70% resist are really common
