Whilst doing a few BG's last night I noticed that I frequently took big damage through dispersion. I'm aware that there are some mechanics that allow for penetration through absorbtion effects but I believe this was different.
At one point, whilst quite clearly under the effects of dispersion, a paladin hit me with exorcism for ~2120 followed by a strike of ~2100. Sure enough when I checked combat log, I took somethine like 6k damage from the paladin during dispersion.
Am I missing something here or does this just sound bugged or wrong?
