How exactly does magic penetration work? Which is to say, in what order are % and flat reduction applied?
enemy has 100 magic resist, i have 20 magic pen and 15% MR reduction. how much resist does the enemy effectively have?
uhh...how does that work?
A recent patch made the percent apply after the flat. Before that it was percent first.
100 MR * .85 - 20 = 65 MR
(100 MR - 20)* .85 = 68 MR
% reduction goes from
100/(100+100) = 50%
68/(100+68) = 40%
A 20% increase in damage.
Magic Pen allows for you to ignore a certain amount of Magic resist
while reducing magic resist does almost the same thing
Magic Pen and Magic Resist Reduction are 2 different things
thank you Larias very informative.
and thanks to you other folks as well
