You're taking more than twice the amount of damage necessary and probably 5 times the amount when you have saber ward up and are on the wrong platforms. I think in this case being execution > rotation.
I was under the impression they are the exact same attack behind the scenes, they just had different animations. I coulda sworn I've mitigated the purple spit before, but maybe not.

I'd like a definitive answer on this. I already tank it on the closer platforms, but would like to know for sure. Any hard proof you have would be awesome, Fillion.

Or we could just get a post from Kitru. That'd be enough.
