I'm thinking up some new strategies, and I feel like I once learned that ST plays a part in Damage reduction. If this is true or false, please let me know, thanks!

I only find this piece. about strength in the wiki, nothing with ac reduction.

Strength

The amount of ST trained will increase the

amount of damage one can do with a

physical weapon. It also increases the

Encumbrance limit on a minion

significantly. (Having x4 the strength will

increase damage by x2; you must also

upgrade your Weapons either using the

Blacksmith or Forging to keep your damage

on par). Strength trained on a Mage will

not have any effect on the damage, for

strength to be useful you must have an

Archer, Tank, or Monk .

I thought that St and Dx played a small part in damage reduction but looks like you will need to test the theory to get some numbers to discuss.

It plays a roll in damage reduction in terms how much armor you can wear or how much strength your exbow can drain.

But by itself, I have never heard of it offering damage reduction.

STR does give an amount of Damage Reduction.

No idea what though, or whether it's additive or multiplicative.

It's too small to be noticable, basically.

Agree with GL, and testing may not be conclusive due to the randomness of the damage delivered based on the equation and the reduction given.

It's only during melee, and to clarify a post above, dx doesn't directly reduce damage (aside from avoiding hits entirely)

I have never saw any evidence that str have any impact on DMG reduction

Thanks NS I am just thinking back to some old CB1 discussions but cant recall all the details for sure. But this sounds familiar that ST has a small part in melee rounds for damage reduction.

It's small, and asymptotic like everything else on cb.

Actually, it probably should have been modified when AC was rescaled. It's gotten less impressive since then.

^ I have attempted to tell so many people just what NS has said to a multitude saying I have no freaking clue since I cannot prove it mathematically. Vindication!

Take that non-believers and put it in your prove it mathematically soapboxes!
