DamRed on Stance, Armor etc... how does it work?

Hi,

 

I'm wondering how all of this works. In what order, how do they 'scale' (additionally or multiplicatively)?

 

So... lets say my Stance has 25% Damage Reduction, and my armor soaks another 30% of the incoming physical damage, and the boss hits for 1m physical.

 

Examples

 

In case of addition (seems very unlikely):

Unmitigated damage: 1.000.000
Armor+Stance=55% reduction, so I take 450.000 damage as physical.

 

Multiplicatively:

Unmitigated damage: 1.000.000
Armor soaks 30%: 1.000.000*0.7=700.000

Stance soaks 25%: 700.000*0.75=525.000 damage as physical.

 

Aand, additional question to Brewmasters: How does Stagger work with all of this? Multiplicative after Armor and Stance, or before them? So, lets say I have 50% Stagger rate from Stance, Shuffle and Mastery.

 

Before mitigation:

Unmitigated damage: 1.000.000
Stagger cuts it in half: 500.000 and 50k DOT,

Mitigation blah blah

 

After mitigation:
Unmitigatad damage: 1.000.000
Additionally/multiplicatively soaked damage: 450.000/525.000
Stagger kicks in: 225.000/262.500 damage as physical and DOTz

 

I hope someone can help me out, I'm really interested in this. smile.png

Thanks everyone! smile.png

Hi Szensa,

 

From what information i can gather stagger comes into effect after damage mitigation.

 

E.G.

1,000,000 damage

500k mitigated by dodge/parry/block

500k hit is then reduced by reductions/mitigation to for arguments sake 300k

Whatever is left is then staggered.

with shuffle and mastery % u then stagger the remaining 300k damage .

 

It gets a bit tricky in how it gets calculated with other cd's (pain supp etc) but ill do my best interpretation.

The damage is applied in stages,

1. Dodge/parry/block etc is applied

2. the remaining damage is then altered by cd %

3. whatever is left at the end is staggered

 

here is a link to the best explanation i could find after 10 second of googling :P

So i guess you could say its addition of ratings, then multiplication of reductions, then stagger.

 

I have had a few quiet beverages so i apologise  if im rambling and making no sense XD

      Do we have any official statement on whether physical armor reduces non heroic damage, such as minions, mercs, monsters and structures? I tested it on the trial grounds, but since non-heroic damage numbers won't show up when the player character is hit, I was unsure. It seems to me it does, but can anyone confirm this, or link some resource?

      Hey!
      <Growth> is a newly formed guild and we're currently looking for active raiders! The principles of the guild are to respect each other and be willing to both learn and help. We want to do weekly HC clears and progress into Mythic Antorus. Right now we are looking for all roles and classes. 
      If you are interested then write here or contact @Thanagore on the Draenor realm.

      Strangely Ironic is guild of friends and family that has been around the block a couple times. We are trying to recruit active players to form a raid team. Due to RL and the age of the game our ranks have dwindled. We are a casual guild looking to raid two nights a week from 9pm EST to 11pm EST; days of the week will change as I work shift work. If you want to join and don't want to raid we are still accepting all applicants as we want to foster an active community.
      No hot-heads please, as we are a guild who recognizes that this is just a game and we are all here to have fun and relax.
      If you are interested add reddfoxx#1496 or head to strangelyironic.enjin.com to fill out an application.
