Paladin
  • Enhance: Righteousness will now grant an effect that reduces combat mitigation.
Picked this up and the Mitigation effect is 3 (three)? Am I reading that correctly? My Paladin has close to 15000 mitigation, 3 is... well.. nothing? I can't be reading that correctly.

I'm actually curious why it's suddenly being called 'combat mitigation' rather then 'mitigation' or 'physical mitigation'.... How is 'combat mitigation' different from 'regular' mitigation. And if it's not different.. why the different verbage?

combat mitigation is on the enemy NPC, i'm thinking the naming difference is to avoid confusing it with player mitigation.

I guess I'm used to the older arts which just said mitigation or physical mitigation, or arcane mitigation, etc of target... which was the mobs..
I'd be way more confused if an offensive art decreased the player's mitigation then if the arts just said 'decreased target's mitigation'...

Combat mitigation is a new stat they introduced with Nizara and are using going forward. It's not the same thing as physical mitigation.

That said... about a week ago I took a beta buffed ranger into some heroics to check the requirements and trash mobs had about 1200 combat mitigation. So debuffing 3 from that does seem a bit... underwhelming.

*That said, combat mitigation values will probably change before it goes live, so we'll have to see what they end up at.

Just re-reading my above post - I didn't mean to come off as snippy; it was meant more as a cheeky post but came off as snippy. I apologize for that. Bad Cragfire.

Good information on Combat Mitigation.

Hence, your shiny 200million abilities suddendly hit for 700k - NOT cool!

To be fair, since there is resolve - why introduce another stat?
Just give the mobs slighty more resolve than you can gain in total and there is all which seems to be necessary to get balanced.

They are doing this because stat inflation was causing lag. Bigger numbers mean more data being sent to log files, server files, etc. The smaller the number, the less data, less lag. Makes sense.

Except requiring every action to perform an additional calculation (the effect of combat mitigation) will cause far more strain on the server than saving a couple of numbers on the end ever could (assuming of course that it would do anything at all, which is unlikely).

Exactly - initial damage gets applied, then another calculation made to reduce final value - bad idea in the first place.
