What is the secret behind Steel Skin. (in General)

Little Anthony September 17 2008 10:38 PM EDT

I have had my wall for awhile using steel skin.
Normally i have upgrade my wall and my Steel Skin from 2mil HP -> 2.3mil HP. My SS is always at 1.0. With my setup and NW, it stays at 503 AC.

Today i decided to up my minion HP > 2.3mil HP and up SS to 1.0 (normal)
Then I noticed my total AC increase 1 points to 504.

what is the secret behind SS? this should require additional research. Because i just saved 1.4mil cb2 for this precious 1AC :P

Maybe the number was just rounded up to 1.00 when it wasn't actually at 1.00 yet... so when you upped it that last bit it upped your AC

Draco's got it right. I noticed that happen once, just be sure that the effect is over 1/8th the HP and you'll always get the full amount.

Unrelated, but 504 AC? That's pretty crazy.

remember that i have been upping HP from 2mil to 2.3mil for over a month.
There are times, i have put way over exp ( more than 1/4) into SS just for the hell of it (since i like my minion's HP round up nicely)
Over this course of over a month, and various exp distribution ratio. It has never give me this extra 1ac.
I would like to see if there is some way. When i have more and more SS, would i get another AC boost like this?

Rounding on the AC itself?
