What I've noticed with the arcane armor is that the reduce phys damage stat that's on...6 or so pieces of the gear/gear bonus stops being effective after a certain percent.
I think you have mistaken it with +def levels, because as far I know -physical damage reduce doesn't have diminishing returns. But it caps at 50% though.
Could be worth testing, It wouldnt be too hard? Make a gear set with no phys damage reduction, 10% and 20%. Get a 500-500 damage weapon, see what the hit is, then put on the 10%, see if its 90% of the original damage, and so on.I could work out the maths if I had the time, but I really think it would be faster to just do that
Hmm Agatio I don t think def levels cap out like that either. If I understand it right they basically work like..First the incoming attacks attack level gets removed from your defense level, then whatever is left is what it works with.First def lvl = -1% damage, next one -1% of what damage is left and so on. Doesn't cap out extremely fast but in the 50+ ranges itll get quite a bit less effective. DPH sin: Hmm, with GOF (God of Frenzy) wep 2,86 may still be quite OP. Maybe lower it to 1.86 or 2.0 at max. That way with chill they shouldn't be too horribly slow that a hit takes an eternity. (Should they not use a skill.) If they don't get GOF that should cap it nicely. Oh and if you're looking into alternate gear sets, take a look at HA/melee veno too =3?I still think removing tidal to say max level 5-6 should be done anyway, I play a sin and it's simply OP at 66% sage.
Sins havn't been nerfed by 40% so that's kind of amazing? Maybe w/e you were hitting got a boost?
If im right about def lvls they do diminish btwAnyway I think looking at ways to reduce the damage taken from sins is a bad idea, since their damage is insane. Better to balance the sins immunity to debuffs/stuns & look at bm or seeker damage as a balance point for the gears.
Mkay if asterelle says so i'll believe you, always thought they diminished, been ages since ive been on pwi.
@Ruse, Asterelle must have some info we dont, she really is a legend.
