<p>The relic does not take wards into account. I'm sure others have noticed this. I can have 10k+ wards up on target and target will still take damage. Is this intended?</p>

The thing just eats through them insanely fast once it gets going.</p>

<p>I have never seen the Relic work on wards or reactives either.</p>

<p>I can state as a fact that it is going through my self magic ward as well as all of my procced wards.</p>

I don't doubt they are working for others as no one has said anything until now so I guess I am wondering what is wrong with me...</p>

<p>It's focus damage.. that's how focus damage works. You would think bluebies would know this atleast, but [Removed for Content].</p>

The Bloodthirsty Choker and Hallow's Gallows for example both deal Focus damage, and that damage is absorbed both by my monk's self magic ward (Outward Calm) and by clerical arcane wards. The only thing that is special about Focus damage is that it cannot be mitigated. Focus damage can still have a damage type (arcane, fire, cold, etc) and can still be warded if it does.</p><p>I suggest you at least try to be respectful to your fellow players, as it is statements like this one that reinforce the unfortunate reputation of PvP servers as havens for aggressive, immature players.</p>

<p>The relic completely ignores my wards. I will have 20k+ worth of wards sitting up on the relic holder, not going anywhere, while the relic holder loses health.</p><p>However, I wouldn't want it to eat my wards. At least not my group wards. It would be using up something I'm using to keep everyone else in the group alive. It's just annoying to have to spam direct heals, but it's better than the alternative.</p>
