i would really want to know how does it work.... someone post some numbers and such please

What's supposed to happen, according to the official numbers:
Level 1M tat:
Max reduction: 45% = 450K.
1M hit incoming. 450K is < 75% of 1M, so 450K is reduced, leaving 550K.
20K hit incoming. 450K is >75% of 20K, so only 15K is reduced, leaving 5K.

The max reduction actually appears to be significantly less than 45% from my experience, though.

alright ToE gives you endurance. 40% on the attached minion, 30% in aura

what endurance does is reduces damage by it's level. So 20 endurance reduces 100 damage to 20. However it cannot reduce it more than 75%. So 100 endurance doesn't reduce 100 damage to 0 it instead caps at 25.

What would be good would be to see some solid testing given different scenarios. I'm sure this testing has occurred before, but I don't know where to find it.

If people want to test Endurance, start with AMF backlshes, as they're constant damage.

But doesn't Endurance apply a lower amount of resistance to AMF?

AdminQBGentlemanLoser [{END}] June 19 2008 5:12 AM EDT

Why should it?

Draugluin June 19 2008 5:45 AM EDT

No idea, but it does. Perhaps because AMF is on the whole rather smaller than other damages, and thus much more likely to keep under the ToE cap, perhaps? As in, that would be an almost definite 75% reduction. Or is that 65% now?

My original research into AMF Backlash damage and Endurance. Not really valid now, as the percentages of the ToE have changed a few times since then. ;)

anyone care to do some testing?
