Armor Class and AMF/GA (in General)

AdminTitan [The Sky Forge] June 25 12:55 PM EDT

So it's been a long while and I don't remember.

I know all AC blocks incoming physical damage. The + from AC blocks incoming magical damage. But what about AMF and GA, I don't remember.

For GA I see this in the wiki:
GA damage is reduced by AC due to enchantment, not base AC; GA damage type is GA.

Not sure what that means though, + affects GA? I get the second part.

For AMF I couldn't find anything like this in the wiki. It mentions RoBF lowering it; which I remember, but nothing else.

AC by enchantment is + AC. + AC lowers all damage except bleeding which is the game's only form of "pure" damage. Base AC only lowers physical.

Are you sure it lowers AMF damage:

Beating Heart cast Antimagic Field on Caharin (0.18)
Caharin takes damage from his own Shocking Grasp (572,865)!
Caharin touches Flaming Sword [2,830,751]

That seems awfuly high if it's getting an ~65% reduction. That would mean the AMF would do about 1.6M damage for 2.8M damage dealt at only .18 AMF. That seems wrong no?

BTW, ^ that's with 402 AC and 5M SS

I'm pretty sure AC doesn't reduce AMF damage.

Exact same opponent.

Caharin takes damage from his own Shocking Grasp (555,101)!

With 62 Armor. The number is actually lower, so that's funny.

Is amf still at .18 in the 2nd instance, I expect your SG is bigger due to less penalties.

Guess AMF is not reduced by AC, kinda of strange.

Newlin [SeeD] June 25 8:00 PM EDT

It would be nice as it would allow for a mage with a full set of AC. Unfortunately the AMF backlash without the NSCs kind of kill that.

Yeah I was trying to figure out why I was running NSCs instead of Tulkas. Guess I should have trusted my younger self.
