We've got the math on the effective mitigation of the bubble for SM. (There's some disagreement on critical damage from classes, but that was resolved here on the spreadsheet. https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... sp=sharing
For those that do not know, the absorb from phantom's blade cannot be triggered until either the duration expires, or the bubble is dropped. So it does mean that it can mitigate more damage over time compared to black orc wounds buff.
This BO thread runs parallel to the phantom's blade thread in that its asking for the war bellow to affect the party. So perhaps the suggestion there: reducing the duration to 5s and making it affect the group can be partially mirrored here. Instead of making the wounds buff last 5s, still allow it to last 10s but refreshable (with the heal accompanying) after 5s.
