Is this Q&A outdated?

Could someone please explain to me if % armor penetration stacks? For example, if I have a black cleaver and a last whisper, and the black cleaver hits max stacks, would my auto attacks and abilities penetrate 73% of the targets armor assuming I also have the 8% mastery as well?

so you would multiply the 2 percentages together to get the actual percentage of reduction.

but in your case, you are mistaking armor penetration and armor reduction, the're 2 different things. reduction is applied before penetration. so you do the reduction part first then whatever you have left is what you do penetration

Q: How does dodge work?

A: The best way to show how dodge works is an example, let's say you have 10% dodge in your runes.

10% dodge.

You grab Ninja Tabi, which gives 11% dodge.

11% dodge +
(89 * .1) = 8.9% dodge

For a total of 19.9% dodge. (Note that the 89 comes from the percent remaining from the previous dodge percentages have been calculated.)

You then get Phantom Dancer, which gives 20% dodge.

20% dodge +
(80 * .11) = 8.8% dodge +
(71.2 * .1) = 7.12% dodge

For a total of 35.92% dodge.

Could someone please update this. Was just looking through and it has some great information. This shows complacency at a company when you still have on a pinned post dodge when dodge is not even part of the game anymore. I am a huge supporter of LOL, but is hard to tell a friend to play a game that is awesome when we cannot even keep up with our own posts.

This Q&A was awesome but is so outdated that it's now a source of confusion and misinformation.
