Talk:Damage Reduction

Jump to: navigation, search

At least for WOW player you should note if Armor reduces incoming damage or not. I actually don't know. (Which is surprising as have been tank in EQ and WOW for something like 8 years now. Trying to be a healer for a change here.)--YuriPup 11:31, 5 April 2007 (PDT)

it does, but only Common Damage, you could look it up @Armour or Character Stats --Xander 11:44, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
I think we need a mitigation page too then. Having tanked a fair amount of raid content the topic of damage mitigation comes up in just dealing with melee damage. It would be a more specialized page than this.--YuriPup 12:00, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
It is there already, only it redirects here for now... and could be changed if and when more content comes in =)
If you have any content for it already you're most welcome to add it... --Xander 12:39, 5 April 2007 (PDT)

"However, a foe whose level is higher than yours will lower that chance" is fire and shadow resistance all or nothing? That phrasing makes it sound like damage resistance will resist all damage when it succeeds. (That a resist check is an all or nothing check, rather than say reducing all sources of that damage type by x percent.--YuriPup 12:25, 5 April 2007 (PDT)

I think you missed the first sentence on that page... nowhere there i see any indication for a complete resist, only for reduced damage... I took the paragraph from the manual, so it's not my fault if wording isn't as clear as you might want it to =P --Xander 12:39, 5 April 2007 (PDT)
