    not quite true, they fixed paladins being almost invincible and do crazy damage, but tanks at 80 can easily reach over 120% avoidance or w/e it is they need to be unhittable by melee attacks.
    OK its old content but WTF this souldn't be posible for me.

    PTR ban?

    Actually, 5.2 completely fixed the paladin vengeance bug, as SotR's mitigation can no longer go higher than 80%, thus effectively capping mastery to 50%.

    For the same reason that locks were getting banned on the MoP beta when they found the GoSac exploit and decided to have fun.

    Why does it matter? It's the PTR...I know you found a video and want to somehow make it sound like you've made a super-important discovery but it doesn't affect live servers in the slightest and no-one cares who downs what on the PTR. You'll notice that when the level 80 paladin killed bosses in MSV Blizzard did step in and make changes to Vengeance so it wouldn't happen again but no-one gives a shit about stuff like this on the PTR. It's an artifact of the gear scaling and there's no real incentive to put in the work required to disable it for sub-90s.

    That was not just having fun, that was actively griefing other players since it was lagging/crashing other players. Blizzard didn't ban the person who went and soloed Dragon Soul heroic on the PTR in Cataclysm (don't remember when it happened, maybe 5.0 PTR?).

    Copy-pasting what I wrote in the description of the first PTR video that I released:
    I just want to emphasise that what you see here will never happen on live realms. The only thing that made this possible was the PTR testing buff which scales the item levels of all gear up to 502 or above.

    We did this for a laugh and haven't interfered with any 90 test groups (nor do we plan to either). Don't use this as a means to judge the encounter difficulties or class balance.
    We actually found (and reported) some bugs whilst doing this, but it has since been fixed and the buff now scales your ilvl down to 10 if you're not level 90.

    Here's Lei Shen 10N for those who find the scaling entertaining xD

    They already nerfed it, but it was really fun to do. Paladin tanks were basically immune to damage because of 300% haste and mastery capping.

    It got fixed during the Dark Animus 10HC testing. Our ilvl now scales to lvl 10 instead of >500. You know need to be lvl 90 to get the >500 ilvl buff. Sadly. It was really fun though.

    Not really, hit cap at 80 for a 93 boss is 95%
