Touch of Karma glitching?

I don't know what's exactly causing it but sometimes I'll put Touch of Karma on an enemy and still get all of my incoming damage. I saw it happen twice on a rogue and then a mage, but the symbol is still up, it's still up as a buff for me, but it's just not working. Has this happened to anyone else before?

Is this through the whole duration of the buff?

Don't know if this is your problem but there is a cap of your max health on it.

This happens when you get over damage of your health. Read the tooltip.

I my opinion the symbol should disapear, but i does not.

If they get rid of karma on themselves, i.e. block for mage, cloak for rogues, bubble for pally, you lose the shield. It's pretty lame considering karma is our main defensive, but that's what happens when blizzard is determined to make sure that monks aren't a top tier class.

Cloak doesn't get rid of it(it gets rid of the dot portion, though), but anything that would remove physical debuffs does (BoP, Bubble, Block, Alter Time, are the only ones I can think of that specifically do this).

Happened on some random Hozen in Jade Forest, so no, none of those conditions actually happened.

How much incoming damage were you actually taking? Remember that it only absorbs to your max health, so in a high damage encounter it may seem like it didn't do anything.

Yeah, the whole time.

I know that, it just didn't work at all. As soon as I put it on the guy, I continued taking damage. Symbols still there and all but I'm still hurting.

I was fighting a Shadow Priest.

Yeah that's odd then. I know it happens sometimes when you're fighting a warrior or another monk who can reflect the ToK back to you with Spell Reflect/Diffuse Magic/Opponent's ToK.

Lol didn't know that, so what happens when your own ToK is reflected back at you? Do you like take the initial damage and the dot damage on top of that?

Also it can't be dispelled right? I mean a healer's normal dispel magic moves? I seen my ToK just disappear at times. But didn't know about mages or pallies being able to stop it.

I killed a monk through touch of karma recently with my touch of death. Working as intended?

It all depends on how much of the shield is there. I had touch of karma just popped and the +20% life buff and a ww monk touch of karma'd me. It didn't even remove all of the karma shield and he died from the damage since he was around 20% health when he did it.
