    Default New purifier change, but the tooltip is borked?!

    Doesnt matter how many points i put into purifier, the healing absorb shield says 710 in the old cookie cutter build and in 51 pt purifier in tooltip, why didnt they change the tooltip on the skill they changed makes me sad...

    Tooltips can't reflect the actual damage absorbed because it would have to update based on your current spellpower. There's already a thread on this.

    It's not really an easy fix because it's something that has to be calculated each time you cast a spell thanks to temporary changes in spellpower etc which is obviously not how the tooltips were designed to function. This could be significant development effort for very little benefit. Imagine in a 10 man raid having to update the tooltips everytime someone casts anything.

    Tooltips has been bugged for as long as I can remember.

    I just calculated the shields myself from combatlog. :P

    And yes, the 51 puri shield buffs in 1.3 is amazing. A-M-A-Z-I-N-G.
