Fear Ward

Postby Zaakir » Mon Feb 08, 2016 3:03 am

Some context: viewtopic.php?f=20&t=230&p=3332#p2339

Another Fear Ward question, if anyone can help reason this out or provide evidence: currently, if I use berserker rage with fear ward up and at this time also get feared, I am immune to the fear, but the fear ward buff is used up -- is it correct that the fear ward is used, or should berserker rage take precedence? I feel like the fear ward buff should not be used up, since the berserker rage prevents a blanket immunity; however, the fear ward is essentially doing the same thing, and I am probably looking at the issue this way since that scenario is more beneficial to me/my raid. Anyone able to look at it objectively? :)

The wording on Fear Ward is pretty clear. "Wards the friendly target against Fear. The next Fear effect used against the target will fail, using up the ward. Lasts 10 min."

Whether it actually worked like that on vanilla is up for debate, but my guess would be that it's working as intended.

Fear Ward is working as intended. Tank only needs to do the stance dance if Dorf priest forgets to cast FW, or is dead and can't cast it, or the fear cycle is faster than the 30sec cool down.

Here I am only wondering the order in which Fear should check against Berserker Rage or Fear Ward -- I do think that it is working as intended, just needed another opinion to convince me. :P

The other thread is a separate issue.

Argh see, that is what I was thinking yesterday. Does the immunity come first? I'm back on the fence.

I have no conclusive proof either way so I don't feel like it should be changed, nor am I asking that, just trying to find some info to make a determination.

The ward is like a grounding totem. It will negate the next fear on the target, not dispeling it. It doesn't matters if the target is already imun by another effect (or can resist the fear).
