Ignore Pain? More like ignore mechanics.

Coming from this weeks raid clears on Warcraft Logs we can easily see a trend... I think we can all agree when one tank (Druid) takes 28.9 million Damage and mitigates 1.2 Million of that damage, and his paired tank (Warrior) Mitigates 21 million damage and takes 4 million because of Ignore Pain, something needs to get reworked. With those numbers why not just everyone reroll Prot Warrior and completely remove healers from the game.

Tank Rankings by Boss:

Tank Survivability Metric:

Can we get a confirmation that this is getting fixed? Right now it's breaking the game.

EDIT: People are saying that I cherry picked a log. I actually just grabbed a random one from the tank ranking by boss list. Here is another hilarious one... try to find the prot warrior in the list (HINT: He's not #2):


Also, feel free to look at any of them on that list. They're all the same.

It does look as though Ignore Pain is currently performing stronger than we'd like, so I would expect to see it come down a bit soon.

Be on the lookout for a balance change on Ignore Pain in an upcoming hotfix.

Thanks for all the feedback here!

Why on earth would you nerf Ignore Pain, we need that because its our mode of defense, this isn't a thousand people complaining its a minority. It helps us out a lot and warriors still die especially in raiding. Here's blizz catering to the minority again, ugh.

Nothing to do with the minority, but our numbers do show it outperforming similar skills - as said I would expect to see it come down a bit, but I don't have specifics on that at this time.
