Divine shield, we need clarification

Paladin
Protects you from all damage and spells for 8 sec, but reduces all damage you deal by 50%.

Alysrazor harsh winds still does damage

Durumuu eye beam phases pierces through the shield

Anyone come across any other fights where the bubble does not do what it says? We need blizzard to change the tool tip to say, sometimes protect you from all damage but you need to test it on every boss first to know for sure.
Heh. Total immunity is something Blizzard has trouble balancing against. It's not just a damage reduction cooldown--it totally negates all debuffs. So when a debuff (or any attack in general) is supposed to be really nasty, they make it so that Divine Shield won't block it. It's just something that we'll have to get used to, I think, until Divine Shield gets redesigned or removed.
It would be nice if there was some sort of marker next to an ability saying that it goes through immunities

Well then make it 90% reduction and attach a speed buff to it , this way its as worthwhile as disperse
