Thread: Glyph Of Blocking Something I learned

    Glyph Of Blocking Something I learned

    Was just playing around in my Block gear, testing if its better to use T7 2 set(1530 BV) over straight out Blockvalue(1565 BV) as DRdamage was showing I hit harder without 2 set(not updated with new gear im guessing). So I started to test it on the lvl 60 dummy without using devistate or sunder, I noticed that my 1st hit was the same as my second even though the 2nd hit had the 10% BV Buff applied. So I decided to do some testing.

    SS With Glyph Buff kept on:
    1-2535
    2-5874 (Crit)
    3-2566
    4-2562
    5-2531
    6-2558
    7-2545

    SS Letting Glyph Buff fade:
    1-2565
    2-2548
    3-5598 (Crit)
    4-2569
    5-2557
    6-2553
    7-2561

    So at first I thought that the glyph was bugged, hoping that a fix would be coming soon and 10% more damage for me hehe. But then thought Ill remove the Glyph from the equation and sadly it made a differance.

    SS Glyph removed:
    1-2427
    2-2464
    3-2429
    4-2427
    5-5332 (Crit)
    6-2433
    7-2464

    So from what I can see, when you cast shield slam you actully gain the Glyph buff before it works out the damage. I have always loved this glyph and I am even more impressed with it now.

    I know some of you might have already known this but thought I would bring it up incase others were not sure. I know for a long time I would always wait till I had the Glyph buff up before testing big

    thats pretty awesome, yet another reason to use the glyph. it is easily the best and most required glyph imo

    Weird... ya this is news to me. What I'd like to see tested is Damaging Shield and Shield Block now and see how it interacts with them. Suffice to say, it was a great glyph before... this just makes it better. I'm reluctant to talk about this cause I don't want it fixed though lol.
