PL info (in General)

Phrede May 7 2006 2:08 AM EDT

I am struggling a little to understand at what level PL should be trained up to. Should it be trained to a % of total HP (trained + AS). I have only been training it for a week or so and already it is 3rd highest in the stats (around 122K) so I am obviously training it too much.

I have read Help but all it really says is that for each point I train it will absorb 2 points of another minions received damage and only 90% of that will actually be effective on the PL minion.

When the PL minion takes a hit does the damage come off HP or PL or a combination of both. Is the only point in training a high PL to take bigger hits that other minions experience and therefor e is there an optimum PL/HP ration on that minion.

If this has been explained somewhere just point me to it.

Letsee... Basically, if you have a wall that you want to take all the hits, do the following: Train PL just large enough to take all the damage in any fight you participate in.

The PL minion takes the damage for another minion to its own HP, and lowers the damage taken by %10.

Hope that helps?

Thanks PS - so the level of PL is just saying if someone hits me for 200K in one hit, and my level of PL is 120K I will only absorb 120K of the hit (if I have enough HP) and it will take around 108K off that minions HP total.

If the effect of the PL is 120k, then yes. The minion with PL will take 120k damage from the attacked minion, and will lose 108k HP itself.

but i have a question on that too. Should PL be trained higher than HP?

Uh well I would just keep training PL high enough where it dies before everything else does. If it doesn't then you doing something wrong and you need more PL. A huge PL isn't helpful if the minion dies by absorbing half that. Thats what I am doing with my current character. Just keeping it high enough where the one with PL dies first.

no, there is no point in training it higher than HP.

doesn't the minion still absorb more damage than it has HP, and with it taking away more damage from the other minion(s)?
