Ret: GoAK Bugged

Paladin
Guardian of Ancient Kings is severely bugged. Instead of adding 1% strength per hit, as it should, it is adding 1 strength per hit. This is a massive discrepancy; on the order of giving up roughly 1700 attack power (napkin math) when fully stacked, depending on gear.

Please check for yourself and then send a bug report into Blizzard so we can get it hotfixed as soon as possible. This will certainly help our dps in boss fights, anyway.
I actually made a post regarding this in the Bug Report Forum, but it was deleted for some reason.
It's actually really annoying that blizzard hasn't added this to the known bugs list. Its a fairly major problem with our only cool new spell in cata and I know I've reported and posted about it several times.

they are used to nerfing us, not buffing problems.

but its ok, in due time we will get fixed (maybe)... -_-


we get "fixed" at the end of expansions then we become broken until the start of new ones
Bump.


This needs to be fixed.
Bump, but let's make sure this isn't a QQ thread. We just need the spell to do what the tooltip says it should. Though if they are hotfixing it, they may want to look at some pet pathing issues too, such as the pet not always doing target switches properly.
Rofl + Bump
Besides the strength buff problem the guardian itself seems a little "slow". It doesnt go for the target you are targeting and picks a random one, It wont attack something unless you melee it first(any ranged attack wont make him attack anything), and if he goes in then out of combat he will never go back into combat eventhough hes still out.

There is a thread about this on the Bug Report forums. We're not allowed to bump the threads, but if you could post something about you experiencing the issue as well then it would help.
I'll lol if blizzard's "fix" is changing the tooltip to whats currently happening.
Just did a test with this, in my current gear, By auto attacking a training dummy from behind with Seal of Truth active (Making me hit and exp. capped) And did 1.8k dps. Used my Guardian and got a 53 dps increase from it during the time.

with an actual rotation for 7 minutes, I got a dps increase of 100~ ONLY at the end when he died. Cooldown is worthless.
I have a thread here in the Paladin forums going about this and one in the Bug Reports forum that has not been deleted.

You could help out by bumping the Bug Report forum post on occasion with any information or concerns you may have.

Maybe eventually they'll notice it.

They noticed a bug with the guardian.

Hot fixes for December 16th

Ancient Power now has a 30-second maximum duration and will properly be canceled when zoning or relogging.

because 30 strength on a 5 min cooldown is serious business.

This can't be for real.

They took the time to fix that but they can't fix the broken mechanics of the ability.


I don't know what to say.
