How effective is AC vs RoBF damage? (in General)

Does it reduce it at all?
Is it just the + value that counts?
How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie-pop?

...it takes one a-two-hoo *crunch*!

All AC counts towards blocking RoBF damage, as well as possibly the mage shield.

<NightStrike> I can tell you that RBF damage is reduced by both base AC and plus AC

The mageshield does not effect the RoBF's damage at all.

All AC works on the RoBF definitely.

I didn't think the MgS worked on it, but some people have made recent claims in the forum that the MgS also works. I haven't seen any tests of this though.

Per OpVines who did some real testing and posted this in a previous thread:

Superman burns from the flames surrounding Roxanne (1288650) ヨ 221 AC

Superman burns from the flames surrounding Roxanne (1747918) ヨ 99 AC

Superman burns from the flames surrounding Roxanne (1931105) ヨ 0 AC

With a +40 MgS

Dog burns from the flames surrounding Omg! (1261640)
Dog burns from the flames surrounding Omg! (1189637)

Without

Dog burns from the flames surrounding Omg! (1219583)
Dog burns from the flames surrounding Omg! (1339051)

Proven,

The MgS does not help vs the RBF.

I was under the impression that it did affect RoBF damage. I read a post somewhere saying that to overcome robf damage people were equiping a mgs along with lots of ac....

As did I, Wasp.

Lets make the SoC's flash damage work with RoBF damage!
