Externals in Dragonflight Season 1
As Dragonflight Season 1 begins, we wanted to provide an update on how Warcraft Logs is handling

Due to the short and experimental nature of Shadowlands Season 4, we found that it was a good time to test capping excessive external use. We thought this solution worked well, and we want to try it once more in a fresh new expansion and raid. Depending on the feedback we receive, this could be changed in the future.

Bothandwill be capped. This cap is based on the spell's cooldown.
The number of externals received cannot exceed the number of which could be given to one individual by one partner. However, you may receive the buff from more than one player, so long as the number of buffs you receive remains under the cap.
For example: If a priest were to die midway through the fight, and another priest instead gives you PI, the cap will not trigger and your rank will not be invalidated (so long as it doesn't give more PI uptime than a single priest could provide).
Only external buffs received from other players count towards the cap.
For example: If you are a Shadow Priest and use your PI on yourself, you will not be disqualified when receiving PI from another priest.
