Mechanics for Blood Mirror soaking
So last night was my ICC 10 group's first real attempt at Blood Queen Lana'thel; I am the blood mirror soaker for the fight. We had a successful kill, but I died near the end and I'm wondering what the exact interactions between Blood Mirror and damage reduction effects are. Specifically:
- Is the physical component of Blood Mirror affected by armor?
- Is Blood Mirror damage affected by passive damage reductions like Frost Presence?
- Is Blood Mirror damage affected by active damage reductions like Icebound Fortitude?
My assumption here going into it was that the answers to the questions would be (1) No (2) Yes (3) Yes, but looking at the damage I was taking last night it seemed like the answer to number three was no (and presumably this would mean that the answer to number two was also no). It only took a couple of attempts for us to kill her so I didn't get a very good sample size, but from what I saw Blood Mirror was consistently hitting me for 11-13k, despite the fact that I used IBF and AotD at certain points in the fight.
I'm wondering though if anyone here knows of/has done a more in depth analysis of the effects; unfortunately the run I do is an alt run for most people so there is no WoL data to be had.
