just like the question above ^
I asked a lot of in-game players about the armor penetration...thingy..buff. And I got several different answers.
Armor Penetration is a buff for ignoring a partial of opponent's defense, based on opponent's defense.
In big picture >>> Opponent's defense is 1000 and you have 5% armor penetration. Therefore, [1000 - (1000 x 0.05)] = 950
In conclusion, armor penetration reduces opponent's total armor. (think of how the power rune works on weapon)
Armor Penetration is a buff for chances to ignore opponent's defense.
In big picture >>> Opponent's defense is 1000 and you have 5% armor penetration. Therefore, you have a 5% success chance
of breaking your opponent's defense based on the previous example ( like the Shock rune or cure rune ) .
Armor Penetration is not a buff. It's just a fancy "word" to scare the living hell out of the other classes.
In big picture >>> cross impact from hiding is x2 damage, sometimes crti = Blame the armor penetration.Go try yourself, take out the
penetration buff and try hiding+cross impact. ( like batman walking into a bar )
( there are more examples..like dumb examples, so not going to tell you)
Personal example <<< you know those skull warriors at the DWU? They have a built-in armor penetration buff. When you change channels, you will become invincible for a duration. Then when you trigger a mob, it will either failed hitting you or hitting you with a small amount of damage(even though they hit like a truck). But wait a second, you are still 'invincible' from changing channels, the skull warrior CAN'T deal damage to you.
( expect this super-mega-ultra-run-on sentence )
@@So in conclusion, Armor penetration is a buff that ignores a partial of opponent's defense, so small that you think that it's based on success rate, but mostly it's a crit, which most classes are complaining to remove the penetration buff cuz it's fancy, which makes it scary.
[ why not delete G-fist or adjust it 'properly']
I don't know that answer, that is why im asking. Those are just opinions based on dozen of people.
So tell meh
