    Correct, it was lowered from 75 to 50 quite some time ago, don't recall at which patch switch but maybe 1.09->1.10.

    50% for sure, unless you get amped, more% works.

    Late in 1.09 it was:

    PvP: 75% DR cap
    PvM: 95% DR cap

    My 5k life Caddy feral drood with 95%DR was in fact quite unkillable, even between 100+ cows ... great old times.

    Re: What is the Cap on % dmg reduction? NT

    No, 75% was the PvM cap as well. Your druid probably had additional "numerical" PDR in addition to max %DR. Cows deal no more than 200 damage or so, i.e. 50 PDR would have been enough to be immune while your druid should have leeched enough to compensate occasional critical hits.

    Correct .

    There was a bnet rumor with respect to %DR. The rumor said that if you hit 100% exactly, without going past, you'd get 100% damage reduce. I found the rumor so unlikely that I never got around to test it.

    i think i know what you're referring to. the way i understand it is that if you hit 100% DR you're actually immune to crushing blow, and I think it is actually true.

    Actually, we tested the 95% DR PvM cap quite intensely inside my guild, in fact, I put on Gaze just to reach 95%, the only point I don't remember exactly is if it was 1.09 or before.
    The decrease in received dmg between 75%PvMDr and 95%PvMDr was exactly 5 times.

    Yeah I remember begging people to let me kill my own crowds with my paladin he wore Gaze Shaft and String(not quite 75 but close enough make you near invincible and unkillable)
