Description[edit]

Elemental absorption reduces the amount of damage the wearer takes by the percentage specified AFTER all other protections and resistances have been penetrated.

Different degrees of elemental absorption stack. However, do not simply add the various absorption rates (e.g. 10% + 15% does not equal 25%), you multiply them (0.9 * 0.85 = 0.765; for a 23.5% reduction).

Tests from 2014 show that, in some cases, only a single absorption item applies (Eth).

Examples[edit]

  1. The Fire Resistance Fire Resistance: This property absorbs the first 10 points of fire damage per attack that the wearer would normally take. reduces that by 10. This leaves 120 points of fire damage to be dealt with.
  2. The Fire Absorption 33%Fire Absorption 33%: Passive: 33% Enhancement Bonus to Fire Absorption. (Absorption reduces damage from an element by a percentage, after resistance have been taken into account.) reduces that by 33% or 120/3=40. That leaves 80 points of fire damage.
  3. The character takes 80 points of fire damage.
  1. The CL12+ Protection from Energy: Fire is fully consumed absorbing a full 120 of fire damage. This leaves 10 points of fire damage to be dealt with.
  2. The Fire Resistance Fire Resistance: This property absorbs the first 10 points of fire damage per attack that the wearer would normally take. reduces that by 10. This leaves no fire damage to be dealt with.
  3. The Fire Absorption 33%Fire Absorption 33%: Passive: 33% Enhancement Bonus to Fire Absorption. (Absorption reduces damage from an element by a percentage, after resistance have been taken into account.) nothing because all damage has been dealt with.
