Ablative Shield (warning: possible stupid question) (in General)

Why is the effective AS lower than the trained AS on my enchanter minion? He has nothing equipped at all, and only trains AMF and AS.

cause you have a 4 minion team

3 and 4 mage teams get a penalty for using AS.
more for 4 of course

3 and 4 minion teams get penalties. I don't know why Jon hasn't just made the penalty invisible though so as to avoid confusion. It doesn't make sense to have 3 and 4 minion teams to have a visible penalty for AS. It's not as if there is anything (short of firing minions) they can do to remove that penalty.

Odd that AS on 3 & 4 minions gets a penalty when the training page says that AS is "Most cost-effective for 3 or more targets"

ahh, I see, thanks for the explanation. And if Jon made the penalty invisible, I would never have known....

Not really, because it is more cost effective with more minions.
