Talk:Physical Resistance Rating
Should we put something on this page discussing how Mithral is borked i.e. Calvary Plate being classed as medium not heavy, but PRR only being for medium? Christopher G Lewis (Contributions • Message)
DR and PRR
Added an explanation of how PRR and DR interact. I had someone throw a shuriken at my monk with DR 10/epic and 72 PRR. He had a +12 str mod, was using +5 shuriken, and had a +2 damage ship buff for 19+1d2. It hit me for 6-7 damage. If PRR applied first, the damage would look like:
- 20 * 66.52% - 10 = 3.304
- 21 * 66.52% - 10 = 3.9692
With DR applying first, the damage looks like:
- (20 - 10) * 66.52% = 6.652
- (21 - 10) * 66.52% = 7.3172
Since my incoming damage was 6-7, it not only appears that DR applies first, but the damage reduced by PRR is rounded up (damage received is rounded down).--Peng (Contributions • Message) 05:25, February 7, 2013 (EST)
There's no mention of the Bone Armor enhancement for pale master. For each action point spent you get a total of 3, 6 & finally 10 PRR when using shrouds of the zombie, vampire or lich.— previous comment by UsEr31-3-14 ( c | e | d | r | b ) at 11:10, June 20, 2014 (UTC)
PRR formula proposed change
The A (in the reduction column) and 1-A (in the damage column) in the table are misleading (I think). The formula for the REDUCTION is 1 - (100/(100+PRR)). The formula for the DAMAGE is 100/(100+PRR).
For example, if you have 200 PRR, you would reduce damage by 1-(100/(100+PRR)) or 70%. You wouldn't reduce it by 100/(100+PRR) or 30%.
The table would make me think the opposite.
