### Huge question about ability power

so Zonya's ring takes 25% of your ability power and gives it to you right?
k, so what about the defensive mastery called Ardor?

Does it give you 4% of your ability power to you?

Does that calculation happen before or after Zonya's calculation?
Plz help me

Nvm, I did the math, it doesn't matter which order it takes the %, it equals out the same.

But still, does Ardor give you 2 or 4%?

It doesn't matter if it's before or after, but if it adds or multiplies. Basically, you should ask if it does 1.04 * 1.25 (1.3), or 1+0.04+0.25 (1.29).

The difference, if you have 1000 AP before it, is only 10 AP (1300 vs 1290). It would be nice to know, but it doesn't really make a difference to how you play. My guess is that it multiplies, though.

 At level 1, Ardor gives 2%, and at level 18 it's 4%.
