Talk:Energy Absorption

Stacking[edit]

Forum post leads me to believe that this stacks just like Healing Amplification where as 10% + 15% + 20% + 33% + 50% = 1 - (.9 * .85 * .8 * .67 * .58) = 79% Absorption..
So, 100 points of <type> damage would be 100 - 79% = 21 damage taken. NOT, 100 - (128%) = 0 damage taken (28 point heal)..
Or, 240 points of <type> damage would be 240 - 79% = 251 damage taken. NOT, 240 - (128%) = 0 damage taken (67 point heal)..
Or, 2,261 points of <type> damage would be 2,261 - 79% = 475 damage taken. NOT, 2,261 - (128%) = 0 damage taken (633 point heal)..
Is this correct? ShoeMaker 16:15, January 21, 2012 (EST)

I'm heading to bed now, if above is correct, please make stacking note on main page of article. Thank you. Big Grin ShoeMaker 02:47, January 22, 2012 (EST)
Because damage varies stacking is hard to check, might be doable if you can test enough to get the whole possible damage range and then try to repeat with absorption.
Can't seem to think of an elemental attack that always does an equal amount of damage→ Neouni 07:04, January 22, 2012 (EST)
Maybe a specific lava pool or something? I'm thinking that the pool at the Black Anvil Mines always ticked for 18-22? Maybe in the PvP pit with a caster with metas and amp gear off so they "Always" get the same number Non-Crit? I'll have to do some more research on how to test it I guess..

Use one of the Eternal wands to test it? IE +5 Eternal Wand of Frost/Starter wand Yawgmoth 17:15, January 22, 2012 (EST)

Is this stacking formula correct as of 2017 as well? anyone know? --yoko5000 (ContribsMessage) 13:09, March 18, 2017 (EDT)

Name[edit]

Is this the correct name or should it be Elemental Absorption? Or both?
