    Chaos Bolt: Spell/Ability Breakdown?

    GC said yesterday (May 27th) that today he'd provide a complete list of spells and abilities Chaos Bolt was going to ignore/not ignore.

    Has anyone seen this list? I can't find it on the forums and though I can generate a pretty complete list myself I'd just like to see an official response. Thanks for any help! =D

    If it says "Reduces damage by x%" it will not ignore it.

    Chaos Bolt and resistance piercing
    Cheat Death is an absorption. So Chaos Bolt can still pierce it. Cloak of Shadows is a resist. So Chaos Bolt can still pierce it.

    There are four basic categories of spell resistance here:

    * Immunities -- things like Divine Shield. Chaos Bolt will not affect these.
    * Damage reductions -- things like Barkskin. Chaos Bolt affects these currently, but not in 3.1.3.
    * Absorptions -- things like Power Word: Shield. Chaos Bolt will continue to affect these.
    * Resistances -- things like Cloak of Shadows. Chaos Bolt will continue to affect these.

    Seriously. Someone bookmark this. If we go all the way from 6.0 to 7.0 and there is never a paid Garrison feature on the blizzard store, I will go to the store, purchase a hat and film myself eating it.

    Really, all that matters is what it can pierce and not what it can't.

    Power Word: Shield
    Shield procs from heals on a target (disc priest talent?)
    Antimagic shell
    CLOS
    Cheat Death
    Sacred Shield
    Hammer of Valyn'yr legendary mace shield

    All resistances (paladin, shaman)

    ... Thats about it.

    Lol right I get this. I just don't play every class so I don't know all the tooltips.

    Pain Suppression, Barkskin, Dispersion, Shield Wall, Spell Warding, Icebound Fortitude and Bone Shield are the only talents I'm aware of but I was wondering what else there was.

    Think tanking talents and PVP damage reductions (Natures perfection).
