A few abilities seem to be ignoring resilience. Warlock's Unstable Affliction, priest's Mind Blast and rogue's Ambush in particular seem to be the major offenders.
A few of my friends are reporting 40,000 Mind Blasts, 40,000 Unstable Afflictions, and 35,000 Ambushes in arenas. These are the same numbers seen on target dummies, and they are impossible to get on targets with the resilience that comes with basic PVP gear.
I'm not really sure how this could be reproduced, because it seems a little random, but here are two screenshots that demonstrates what I'm talking about:
Kind of hard to read, but here is what it says in the combat log: Insanitiee-Kel'Thuzad's Unstable Affliction hits Rebeccablack for 39907 Shadow.(6104 Overkill).
An example of Mind Blast possibly doing it: http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/2764/mindblast.png
Ambush and Obliterate have been reported as having similar problems.
The occurrence seems to be fairly random, though. Some people are saying all of these abilities will hit normal sometimes and then randomly hit for much higher, producing numbers like the screenshot above.

I know that UA dispels hit healers through resil for 40k on the PTR
I havent really noticed higher ambush crits but I'll start reading the logs after matches when I queue later today. I also dueled my 4.1k resil resto shaman friend checking ambushes right now and I didn't notice any abnormal ambush crits...so /shrug
Edit: Que'd some 2's to test this out...all the ambush crits were normal. Maybe this was already hotfixed?

considering UA hit me for 10-12k before the patch... and blizzard said that the UA damage was going to be doubled... im pretty sure it shouldn't be hitting for 40k
just another pvp bug
Yes, I did. That's only 2 to 3 percent reduction.
Look, a bunch of players are reporting this. They'll normally see 25k or 30k and then a random 45k to 50k will pop up. It's not normal. And it happens with other abilities too.
Today someone told me a feral Ravage'd him for 70k, through resil and plate. I thought he was on crack but apparently this may have happened (BG Berserk + Unheeded Warning + TF modifier). Another reason not to queue arena!
Check Arena Junkies. Benys was reporting that his paladin normally dispels for 20,000 to 30,000, but last night he got a 56,000 dispel out of seemingly nowhere.
Something is definitely up with either resilience randomly not working or some abilities randomly hitting a lot harder for seemingly no reason.
Well, I don't know what I can do to convince you beyond that screenshot, but here is a thread on Arena Junkies of people — including warlocks — reporting the problem: http://www.arenajunkies.com/topic/197904-unstable-affliction-hits-bombers-for-40127.

I've seen several posts claiming that UA is hitting really hard...but no one seems to be able to actually back that claim up.
Look I can start posting 100s of screenshots from the past 2 days that I have played arenas. As can 100s of other healers.
UA hits for 25000-30000 outside of arenas depending on procs.
UA hits for 40000-48000 inside of arenas depending on procs.
Clearly there is a bug here in terms of resilience being ignored or not. At the least, I would like UA dispel to be consistent in a non-arena and arena setting. If Blizzard wants UA to hit for 40k+ then so be it. BUT, I would rather it hit for 40k+ everywhere so that I do not have to create an Excel master spreadsheet of what ability hits differently in arenas and what ability does not.
One thing that I have not tested yet - how hard does UA hit in battlegrounds/rated battlegrounds?
