    Default SS Salvation vs. SS Redemption

    SS Redemption has been one of my favourite effects ever since it was originally put into the game and I've rarely taken it off.

    It procced all the time and I would constantly see it eating AEs for me and saving me in situations where I'd be caught out of position and all that good stuff.

    When I got the Salvation upgrade at the start of CoE, it looked even better - now the proc wouldn't be wasted on small stuff and would more likely be up when something is actually about to kill me - awesome.

    Recently I had a different thought on it and was wondering what you other edumacated defilers think. Now that it only absorbs those "killer" hits, it obviously procs less. It accomplishes it's primary job of keeping me alive better. I was thinking though, the flipside is... it no longer procs nearly as much, so if something isn't hitting as hard, the proc goes unused. Meaning, those times when previously the stoneskin would eat a (smaller) AE, now I actually take the damage and it eats my (group's) ward.

    Does anyone think it would be beneficial to go back to SS Redemption so as to eat up MORE AEs and thereby eat less group wards?

    I doubt this can't be tested in any sort of reliable fashion, so it's more of an opinion piece.

    Pretty much every fight has the stupid X% of power consumed will be inflicted as damage effect now. That means SSR just gets eaten as soon as you cast a spell. Just stick with salvation. If the you're talking about easy fights not getting it to proc, then who cares? Nobody's going to die anyway. And if you're talking about hard fights, just stand closer to the mob. I can't think of any HM mob whose aoes won't proc salvation if you're inside nine meters.

    I've searched my Defiler hard and can't figure out what you're talking about. Is it a gear based proc or something?
