Subject: Nature Protection vs. Stealth
   As a rogue, I have a love/hate relationship with DoT poisons. I love applying them to mobs, and hate it when mobs do the same to me. The biggest problem with DoTs is not the damage, but the fact they break stealth.

Anyhoo, thinking I was being clever, I downed a nature protection potion before fighting a bunch of poison using mobs. The potion seemed to work as advertised; once poisoned I got an 'Absorb' instead of damage on my portrait on poison ticks. But I still get knocked out of stealth on the poison tick, even when the damage is absorbed.

Is this the intended behavior? If so, I'll save my arguments about why it ought to be changed for the suggestion forum, but I'd be curious as to why it was implemented this way.

   Soulcorruptr is correct. It reminds of how many times in the past I've used my shadow absorption as a Warlock while having Priest/Warlock Dots on me in order to bandage myself. Even though the damage is being absorbed, the bandaging is still interrupted. All abilities or channeled items/spells in the game currently work this way.
This just feels like spinning plates...
