From what I have read I know that any armor of 40 AL above 60 AL is 1/2 the damage.
My question is if you have a Defensive Staff of Defense with perfect stats like:
Which is Armor +10 and considering your armor is 60 that's 1/8 less damage right?
10/40 = 1/4
If 40 AL = 1/2 damage reduction
Then 10/40 = 1/8 Damage reduction if 20/40 = 1/4 or 25% less damage...
then 25% / 2 = 12.5% less damage
Now also about armor and armor bonuses... my question is...
Does the armor bonus like Armor +10 Vs Physical count if you get hit in THAT area of the body? Since guild wars uses a damage system where if you get hit on the chest and arms and legs and head all are different areas as to where you can get hit.
Does the Armor + modifier affect only where you where hit?
So if for example an arrow hits you in the chest and you have Armor + 5 Vs Elemental armor on a monk for the chest and you have +10 Armor Vs Physical damage on other places of your armor excluding the chest you do not get that armor bonus for the physical attack by the arrow? Or does the Armor +10 affect the whole body?
Please let me know.
