    Sundering Prefix Question

    The sundering prefix gives you a chance to hit with armor penetration. Now that ability itself has a chance to occur. What i am curious about is how exactly it works. Say you have a 10/10 sundering bow string on a bow.
    You fire an arrow at an enemy, and have a 10% chance to "activate" the armor penetration. Say that you succeed and activate the armor penetration. Now do you actually penetrate their armor? Or with that arrow you have another 10% shot of actually armor penetrating?
    If this is how it works, it seems AP will never actually occur, or if so it will be extremely rare.

    a 10/10 sundering mod will have 10% armor penetration 10% of the time. Easiest way to explain this: You swing your sword that has a 10/10 sundering mod on it. For every 100 swings,10%(in this example 10 swings) of those swings will have 10% armor penetration. Which means on 10 of those 100 swings your attacks will have 10% armor penetration and infilict more damage.

    You got it almost right.
    If the armor penetration is activated (10%, so 1 hit/shot out of ten), that hit/shot penetrates the armor for 10%.
    My understanding of that last number is that actually 10% of the armorlevel is ignored, as if the victim had a lower armor at that moment.

    So let's say the enemy has armor AL80, then IF the armor penetration activates (remember, 1 hit/shot out of 10), that hit/shot would injure the enemy as if he had only AL72 (10% out of 80 is 8).

    But I suggest you check out SonOfRah's article on damage. I can't recall the exact location, but I think it's somewhere on the main GWOnline.net site.
    That article has everything tested and explained.

    EDIT : IBeJebus beat me to the answer :D
