= 30% Dmg reduction to all dmg taken.

So why cant Shadow Priest keep their 15% dmg reduction...

While Locks get a 30% dmg reduction?

Soul Link Talent, and Unending Resolve, most locks are taking these two.

Unending Resolve = 40% dmg reduction and Aura mastery for about 6-8 seconds or so. On a 3min CD.

But when glyphed it turns into passive Dmg reduction.

Its pretty funny, because Blizzard nerfed the passive reduction because of pve...They didnt like classes being naturally tankier, to stop people from stacking a certain class for pve.

Yet they give warlocks even more passive reduction? I pve a lot on my warlock. And for all 3 specs, there's atleast 2 major glyph spots free for whatever use. Our glyphs arent really that important for increasing dps.

So I wouldnt see why a lock wouldnt take the Resolve glyph, while also taking Soul Link. Unless a fight calls for predicted raid dmg or like jumping on bombs on the Iron Jugg fight in second wing of SoO....

Im really starting to think Blizzard doesnt know what they're doing..

Or they all play Warlocks/Mages at HQ.

There's a huge difference between giving up major defensive cooldowns for a passive effect and just having a passive effect on top of everything else.

In the case the OP laid out, the Warlock is effectively sacrificing two major cooldowns: Unending Resolve, and either Sacrificial Pact or Dark Bargain. That's a pretty hefty price to pay, and though it certainly seems to be a popular choice at the moment (and we can discuss whether or not it's too strong), it's still a choice. We like choices.
