Diablo® III

PVP damage reduction 35% for Melee Class

Barbarians and Monks now receive a 35% damage reduction while in the Scorched Chapel

Note: Barbarians and Monks are receiving an additional 5% reduction due to the fact that they generally need to be closer to their targets (as compared to Demon Hunters, Witch Doctors, and Wizards)

--------------------------------

Hope this is the end of 1 shot dueling match

I'm not so sure that is how it is working, I feel like I am taking in a noticeable amount of less dmg hence letting my regen work wonders. Since patch went live I feel stronger than ever

how can you be sure. It says Barbarians and Monks now receive a 35% damage reduction while in the Scorched Chapel doesnt mean that our base 30% just goes away or does it? i really dont know. i thought it was just a 5% buff at first to but read a little closer it's not very clear. Has anyone done any tests?

I have not done official tests but my gut instinct from the duels I have done since it went live ( over 20 1v1s ) is that it stacked
