The point I'm trying to make, and made earlier, was that the AoE effect that AMZ has is indicative that it is meant to be used as a raid/group CD. However, the incredibly small amount of damage it absorbs, renders it useless, except in highly specific and very rare circumstances. That, in my mind, renders it damn near useless. What's the point of picking a talent that can be used properly and actually make a difference in 1 fight in 20 or 30? Either change it to something like Devo Aura or make it something totally different, that you know, does something.
Like I said earlier, most times when I need to use it, it lasts for .7 seconds. That's not right. What's the point? It takes longer to actually drop it than it lasts and mitigates damage. I just don't get it. Something like 10% magic damage reduction for 10sec would be great. Wouldn't break the bank for PvE or PvP. It still can only be used in the bubble, so I dont' think this is some incredibly gamechanging cooldown. And since it's contingent upon stacking, it could still only be used in certain cicrumstances.
