    Just found out today that we can actually make a triangle (or circle if you have more PLDs) with cover!

    But if everyone is covered, who takes the damage? We postulated that the damage taken by Person 1 will be transferred to Person 2, but that damage will not be further transferred to Person 3. Yet if Person 2 gets injured directly by something, that injury will be transferred to Person 3. We haven't actually tested it, but it seems the most sensible guess.

    We also tried having 2 people covering the same 3rd person. But we found that it won't work. When the 2nd cover happens, it cancels the first. So one person can only covered by one person.

    I think you are correct on that. Would still love to test it.

    Also, HG works with Cover. So if person 1 takes physical damaged, it transfers to person 2 and is then negated by HG.

    Well....the iron triangle of "Come at me bro" but that's pretty close to justice

    This was patched out a while ago. I learned that the hard way using Cover + Hallowed Ground on our main tank in Thordan EX and dying, causing us to wipe at 1%.

    ^ I was positive this was the case for a long time because I know I've done it multiple times and it didn't work.

    Try using Cover on the target of that first boss in DV. It's hilarious watching your PLD suddenly get flipped around without actually being attacked

    Really? That's an odd patch, and really f**ks over Cover if you ask me. I did this in T 5 not all that long ago (Pre HW but still) and it worked against Deathsentance.

    Also are you sure he was doing Physical damage? HG doesn't work on Magical/Elemental Damage

    It means Caimie has fixed endgame content for PLDs. Everyone will want to take 3 of them for cool screen shots

    I know in titan ex if I am not MT..
    I would use cover to eat a Mountain Buster and save the MT a stack.. in return i would have the stack

    Or

    In the chrysalis after he cast Triple.. again if I wasn't the main tank i would provoke and eat the first hit.. or cover + HG has worked.
