Hello I am sorry if this is a double post but I could not seem to find an answer elsewhere. Is physical ability damage reduced by armor or magic resistance?

I ask because I recently purchased Jayce, DEFENDER OF TOMORROW (sorry every time you say that name it has to be followed by the title, especially in that 1950's announcer voice), and his shock blast ability is physical damage. I just didn't know how armor effects would interact with an ability like this.

Additionally do physical abilities use spell vamp or life steal.?

All Physical Damage is affected by Armor. All Magical Damage is affected by Magic Resist.

Also Life Steal only procs upon auto attacks or skills that allow it like Ezreal's Mystic Shot or MF's Double Up. Otherwise abilities use Spell Vamp (With 33% reduction with AoE abilities)
