Toughness is basicly only effective against skills that't arn't being used very frequently. Those skills being those with long cast timers, which aren't being used due to the game being very mobility focused.

@Minipuce

to think that to be performant you need to stack only one stat is ridiculous.
I've never said that. I just said that toughness is not a good stat to up for healer.
And actually it is not a good one for anyone, not even tanks. Now this is obvious.
So toughness on gear is useless.

Nuuu

AA, all Insta DD, all cast DD (should have same efficiency regardless off cast time)

Combat logs seem to indicate tou looses efficiency with longer duration dots. (Guessing bc tou dont get stat coff multiplied and off stat is)

Wrong it is ok when you cap other more valueable def stats. Sort of a must at least in AOE hotspots. Also syn better with absorbs vs wounds for example. It isn’t the best def stat tho but neither is wp for healers (for healing)

Finding an ol vid with multiple length dots ticking side by side would be great to verify if this is a bug or not

(On same target from one dotter ofc)

Still I doubt it will be fixed swiftly as it is more in the category of annoying much like no icd bug of riposte for example (years on bugtracker).

Good find / testing regardless

Should have clarrified that, I meant to other form of mitigration. So if you compare Word of Pain and Doombolt for example, then other stats would have better point for point vallue on the WoP compared to Doombolt were toughness actually is effective.

I am the archmage who did the tests with Groumf (Grimbur)

Just know that we did many tests and not just 1 or 2 skills.

We did tests with 9 sec dot (radiant gaze) + 15 sec dot (law of conductivity) + 24 sec dot (transfer force).
The mitigation was divided by around 3, 5 and 8, proportionnaly (24 sec dot is less mitigated than 9 s
= bug or stealth change

we started to look through the code for this case and see if there is any issues, if so it will be changed accordingly.

an issue has been found in the application of the formulas and is corrected on next hotfix / patch.

It did not make it for this patch.
