# Question about armor bonuses (in General)

## Colonel Custard[SeeD]August 13 2006 11:54 PM EDT

I have a question about how armor bonuses stack, if anyone knows.

Say I have two pieces of armor on that increase ST based on enchantment level (say a HoE and a pair of Helm's Gauntlets). If both were at +13, would they each give me a 13% bonus that adds on to my original ST, so that I end up with 100% + 13% bonus + 13% bonus = 126% of trained ST, or does it do 100% trained ST x 1.13 x 1.13 = 127.7% of trained ST? What I'm asking is does the bonus of one item apply to just the trained strength, or does it multiply with other bonuses? Thanks.

The bonuses stack, then are applied to trained ST. So in your example, you would end up with 126% of trained ST.

damn, jayuu beat me, lol.

oh well, i'll still post my original post :)

basically, you add the bonuses together and then add them onto the base ST, to get achieve the total ST. i did some working out on my character Flamey and minion, Annihilator.

base ST: 123,938

TSA +25: gives 30,985 ST

= 30,985 + 123,938 = 154,923

BoM +17: gives 21,069 ST

= 21,069 + 123,938 = 145,007

------

21,069 (BoM) + 30,985 (TSA) = 52,054

52,054 + 123,938 = 175,992

dunno if that makes sense, it makes sense in my brain :)

As far as I know, the bonuses just all apply at once, like your 13 + 13 = 26 example. All apply to base and become one total.
