BUG: Skull of impending doom and Crystal of Zin-Malor’s physical damage is still not being affected by Blessing of Sanctuary.
Yet ‘blessing of protection and sacrifice’ works on it… I cant understand that Blizzard.
https://classic.wowhead.com/spell=20914/blessing-of-sanctuary which is meant to reduce damage from ALL sources by up to 24 damage which was tested to reduce my damage by 10-11 from 25 damage mob hits however this number could vary if the number changes.
However I dont see any reduction on Crystal of Zin-Malor or skull of impending doom. It reduced my damage by 0 and I reapplied the buff over and over. Did nothing. Still 0.

Comment: When I equipped it (just once), it dealt 461 physical damage, and drained 309 mana during each of the three ticks (1/2 second each?) I had it on.
Remember the part where it says ‘ALL SOURCES’ blizz?
People need to learn how to comprehend what the tooltip says.
Places a Blessing on the friendly target, reducing damage dealt from all sources by up to 24 for 5 minutes.
Does not mean that it WILL reduced at all times the flat 24. it will reduce UP TO. so if it reduces by 24 damage…that’s good…if it reduces by 0…that is not as good…but it is still UP TO the 24 that it reduces by. If it was reducing by 500…that would be a bug/issue…if it was reducing by -500 (dealing damage) technically that would still be the UP TO reduction but could potentially be a bug…
