View Full Version : Defense Mechanics

13-05-2005, 03:58
Just got this game this week, loving it so far.

I was wondering how defense works in general, and couldn't find anything on a search. A formula would be nice, but there are a few things that I'm wondering about in particular. Defense clearly reduces damage dealt to you, but does the effect increase linearly (in which case there are diminishing returns percentage-wise) or faster than linearly?

To clarify, linear would mean that increasing from 30 to 60 would be a huge improvement, whereas 120 to 150 much less so.

Also, any other general tidbits about how damage is calculated would be most appreciated. Thanks!

If you can understand the equation then you are doing better than me.

Thanks, that was quite helpful. One unanswered tidbit: how do offhand items that provide a bonus to armor, like shields, chakrams, and whatnot, affect your defense? Is their bonus added to all aread?
