Third PvP Damage Reduction Test This Weekend in Season of Discovery

wow sod battleground matchmaking update phase 2

Round three, FIGHT! Just like we’ve seen for the last two weekends, Blizzard is testing out PvP damage reduction again this weekend with an aura that reduces damage taken and healing received by other players.

The damage reduction portion of the aura will be the same as last weekend: 20% for physical damage and 30% for magical damage. The healing portion will be increased from 20% to 30%.

The test begins at 10 a.m. PDT and will last until the weekly reset on Tuesday.

Last weekend’s PvP play looked pretty good, so we’re going again starting today, with one adjustment.

This weekend we’re increasing the healing reduction to 30%, which means it will stack with Mortal Strike to a 65% healing protection for 10 seconds after taking damage.

We’ll turn the adjusted PvP aura on at 10:00 a.m. PDT (1:00 p.m. EDT).
