Thread: Power word: shield, is it before or after armor mitigation?

    Power word: shield, is it before or after armor mitigation?

    Hi, I'm wondering if power word: shield gets applied before or after armor mitigation.

    For example, say a tank has 50% armor mitigation and a priest puts 4k shield on the tank. Mob hits tank for 6k (before armor mitigation).
    Will the tank lose 1k: ((6k - 4k) * 50%)
    Or will tank lose 0k: (6k * 50% - 4k) ~ still 1k shield on tank.

    Absorbs are calculated after most or all other types of damage reduction, including avoidance, armor and resistance.

    ^ This.

    If the absorbs were before mitigation, then they would do practically nothing against bosses who hit for 80k+ damage a swing.
