Sacred Shield Still Bugged?

Paladin
Sacred shield used to absorb immediately when cast.

Now it isn't up till 5 seconds after cast - Bug or as intended?
Working as intended.

They said they don't want people using it whenever it is up to gain the absorb, or something like that.

Good luck
Working as intended. They moved what used to be the first, instant tick of the shield to the end of the overarching buff. It's pretty lame, actually. I swapped to Selfless Healer over it.
I could be wrong but actually i hear its NOT working as intended.

The intention is for the absorb to appear the moment you take damage but currently they cant get that to work so they have the absorb delayed by a tick.

The original design was that the shield procced when you took damage. They changed that several months ago so that the shields were on a strict six-second timer, previously starting as soon as you cast the spell and now six seconds after you cast the spell. Other than the final tick not happening (dunno if they fixed that yet), the current functionality is working as intended.
