re: PvE Minion Buffs Incoming!

Roy of ArenaNet, "After reviewing BWE results, we wanted to create a better system to accomplish this as a global change for minions. To do that, we made it so that unless a minion is specifically targeted by a creature, they will be dealt drastically reduced damage and condition duration from attacks. Currently, this is set to 95% reduction as we feel like it’s a good starting place, but we’ll continue to monitor and adjust it. This means if your minion gains agro from a creature it will still take full damage, but if there is area effect damage hitting your minion, instead of usually killing it instantly, it will slowly attrition it down.   Minions like Necromancer, mesmer illusions, and ranger pets."

re: PvE Minion Buffs Incoming!

Hi Roy,

Three questions:
1) If a Ranger pet attacks another ranger pet. With them being both minions, do they get the 95% damage reduction? Or are they counted as part of the player and get the full damage?
2) Will runes such as, Rune of the Ogre that summons a rock dog be consider a minion?
3) Elemental glphys weren’t mentioned as minions in your responses. Are glyph summons consider minions?

Roy's response,

1) Nothing different happens, this is for creatures attacks against player minions in all areas of the game as mentioned in the original post.
2) Yes.
3) Yes.

Literally anything you summon/control as a player is a player minion. Turrets, spirit weapons, ranger spirits, ranger pets, gyros, phantasms/clones, necro minions, etc.
