    Default Binding of Death not working in PvP (with numbers)

    I heard rumors that binding of death was not working PvP, I decided to test this as I sometimes run PvE builds/gear in PvP at times. Below is confirmation that binding of death does NOT effect damage at all. I tested this with a cleric using invocation for magic testing and massive blow for physical damage. I also tested this with a warrior using mighty blow and searing strike, same thing, binding of death did not apply any damage reduction.

    Invocation is obvious, it is not varying in numbers with or without binding, no averages need to be taken into account, it simply is not being applied.

    Massive Blow varies a bit, without binding it averaged out to 170.7 damage per hit and with binding it averaged to be 180.05 damage per hit. The variation is close enough to be ignored, especially since the damage has increased instead of decreased, it's obvious that binding is not being applied properly

    Overall, the 9% mitigation boost we are supposed to get is applying no bonus whatsoever, some might not see it as a big deal, I do. The numbers are very long and all below, I apologize for the length of this thread, but it is important to show the numbers and how I got them.

    Also...fix stoneshield, I tested this too :-/. Any dev response would be very much appreciated, thanks.

    Lets bump this to the top. If a man took the time to find flaws in the game, at least a dev confirming they are aware of this and will fix it is at the minimum the right thing to do. Nobody likes being left in the dark as to if a Trion employee even has read this confirming the OP sis correct or incorrect.
