After reading the post by Golandrinas, I went ahead to do a test on Protection from Elites, and here is my test setup.

( /u/madcatz1999 did a test already, but I don't think it is consistent enough. So I redo the test with rerolling the stats, which will make other values stay the same. )

I used a set gear (Striker's Harness) with 11% Protection from elites to do the test. Went to the Lincoln Tunnel Checkpoint, took a shot from a sniper. Went back to BoO, recalibrate the gear and replaced 11% PFE with 10% Health on Kill. Ran back to Lincoln Tunnel, took a shot and compared two.

Here is the picture of the gear and recalibration:http://imgur.com/a/c7GTH

It is pretty obvious that Protection from Elites does increase the damage you received, which is a very stupid mistake once again done by MASSIVE. I hope this can be patched ASAP as this can be very frustrating to have a gear that increases your damage income.

Excuse me for my grammar mistake if you find any, English is not my first language and I will try me best to not make any mistake :)

PS: I did a little test on Exotic Damage resilience afterwards, and it seems working as intended, no bug here :)

Edit 1: formatting

Edit 2: Did more runs with more pictures.

It's the same coding screw up that makes the reckless talent on chest pieces increase your damage and DECREASE the damage you take. unreal.
