damage layers? (in General)
May 25 2009 9:22 PM EDT
can someone link me to the page? i cant seem to find it anywhere anymore... if i remember correctly AMF affects first then MGS and SOC affect the damage next... or something
It doesn't matter what order it all applies, except for the small flat reduction granted by AC.
x * 0.95 * 0.1 = x * 0.1 * 0.95
I believe it used to be listed on the Armor page, though.

ic... but what are the different layers?
AMF first, MgS second, then AC.
I know AMF is first because it used to be pre-ToE.
The link was probably deleted because it was unnecessary.
SoC probably has to effect it last because its adsorption is based on damage taken. Not potential damage taken.

It's all multiplicative, doesn't matter.
SoC damage is applied before AC. It absorbs damage out of the pre-reduction hit.
well that's nice to know. Even Pre-ToE?

Forgot about that point^
Other than that the order doesn't matter.

Cube: Mage Shield magic damage is applied before normal AC also afaik. so order does matter
I thought the only one that matters is SoC retaliation.
SoC is pre-ToE reduction. It is the first reduction applied, Same as MgS
As far as I remember it's;
3) Direct AC
4) Percentage AC
5) ToE (And I suppose the RoBF here as well now)

'Cube: Mage Shield magic damage is applied before normal AC also afaik. so order does matter'
Unless you are talking about the direct reduction by AC, it actually doesn't matter.
.8*.7 = .7*.8
Ignoring the tiny amount from direct AC, it used to matter for Endrance thresholds, now it only matters for SoC abosption (as mentioned above). I only listed what I recall as the order for clarity and in case of any future changes. ;)
