    Level 80 Protection Paladins and old raids.

    I've been having a lot of fun since the start of this expansion on my level 80 twink. I'd like to bring to light something that affects this bracket, and whilst I know that it's not 90 so not many people actually care, I think it's worth hearing about. Feel free to make any comments you like, but be aware I'm not proud of what I've achieved, as I just want the bug removed.

    Since MoP brought with it some awesome gear (and changes) for my class, I've been having a lot of fun soloing old raids, and have discovered a rather unique bug, as shown in this video:



    A brief explanation of the bug:

    Through paladin mastery scaling at this level, it's actually possible for me to get to over 100% damage reduction when I use Shield of the Righteous. The vengeance formula uses % damage reductions to reverse-engineer original damage taken, and provides a broken figure due to dividing by zero.

    I've already reported what I assumed (at least, what I found a few weeks ago) on the official forums [EU] here: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/5560866231. I don't have access to the american forums, but I have reported and ticketed it ingame.

    Here is a list of other "important" bosses that I can solo but level 90s cannot:

    Halion 25 Heroic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ur03fD8wHWU
    Anub'arak 25 Heroic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IUSvVba0NSo
    XT-002 25man Hardmode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=guWjYRg8_N8
    Marrowgar 25 Heroic: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kSC-ZW8gvyo
    And probably most importantly, Sha of Anger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3AEguFrYb1A

    I recently leveled a prot paladin to 85 before I found this - I would have twinked had I seen this sooner

    Awesome work!

    From what hes getting at, extreme levels of vengeance due to an unintended side effect of going over 100% damage reduction through SotR, and having an absorb up allowed him to essentially do 500k dps on LK.

    Of course, had that bug not have happened, he probably would have hit enrage around 70%, and then, due to his extreme level of mitigation, reached around 500k veangence and have downed the boss within 5 mins after that.
    Anyone ever notice how the sun seems to shine silverish now? Didn't it used to shine goldish? PM me if you've noticed this.

    It's pretty funky / quirky but at the end of the day its just bosses being killed by bugged mechanics. Nice read tho.

    Also, if you don't mind using that bug, you should go and try Cata content- it seems that you can enter cata raids at any lvl now.

    Anyway, congrats, you have broken World of Warcraft. :<
    I hope this will be fixed soon. But meanwhile, have fun exploiting.
    Can you enter in a level 90 raid? I know you can enter level 85 raids now, but not sure for level 90. If you could solo (or duo, or whatever) current content, it may cause Blizzard to react.

    Don't bother trying to waste blizz's time, they'll NOT remove or change the 409 items ever.
    Especially not just because of some insignificants QQing on the forums and tickets about something that effects no one at all.

    I'm pretty sure if I manage to get Sha of Anger down they'd pay some attention. I just need some MC soakers.

    I doubt it's wasting blizzard's time just because they took the steps to swap the stats on the 409 gear already (removed mastery and some avoidances), just because apparently some classes were "getting capped on some stats", and yet I can still cap mastery.
