I am not sure if this is a bug or if it is working as intended. I would like some clarification on how Monk’s Withstand functions. When they are hit by a special skill with multiple status ailments, it appears their Withstand rolls against each separately.
I have attached two pictures showing this in raids. In each I have just fired Proteus. He hits (and had no accuracy debuffs either time) and the Monk I am fighting (Leonidas in the first, Wu Kong in the second) has their mana blocked. However, in both cases they are not afflicted with the damage over time. Again, this strongly suggests that the Monk rolls to Withstand the mana block, then - regardless of the result - rolls to Withstand the DoT (or in the other order, but the point is that there appear to be two rolls).
Although I haven’t yet had it happen, this also seems to suggest that a Monk could get hit with the DoT but Withstand the mana block. Could that happen? I feel this is very important, as I am often highly relying on the mana block (the DoT is a bonus) in raids when I fire Proteus, so it’d be nice to know. If a Monk can Withstand a mana block I can easily see scenarios where that’d swing my decision to fire on the other side of the board.
Edited to add: based on what I’ve seen, I suspect that a Monk canNOT Withstand a mana block - only a Cleric’s Manashield Talent can do that. So DoT is a status ailment, mana block is NOT (in the context of a Monk’s talent) - meaning Proteus never misses the block on a Monk.
