    Defense is like the armor you're wearing; penetration is like the tool to pierce enemy's armor.

    But penetration is only for breaking up your enemy's defense, so you also need basic/physical/magical damage to really wound your enemy.

    Just my understanding, not sure how accurate it is.

    So, let's say you have a defender with physical defense of 500.  You attack him with a physical attack of 15,000 and physical penetration of 300.  How much damage are you doing?  If the defense is just absorbing 500 hp of the attack and the penetration is just bypassing some of that defense... isn't penetration worthless?  It would be much wiser to just go for the base attack damage modifiers.  

    Yes, I know that some skills scale off the amount of physical or magical penetration, but how much does it effect the amount of damage that is done?  It is not clear to me.  I might just have to run some tests... It would be nice if this kind of basic information was available :).

    Well, i suck at maths 😭😭😭 and the formula makes me dizzy

    and i prefer just to play it, or test it like you said. If i can not do some real damage, i will reinforce accordingly or find another way like switching from physical to magical

    Lol. I always thought penetration stats impacts nearby or behind the direct enemy only :)

    I know exactly what you are trying to say. It is an extremely relevant point to all who play, even lollers.

    He wants the game mechanics defined.

    You know, of this game we're playing? hes got the hang of it and now he'd like to see the rulebook.

    That sounds reasonable, doesn't it? And really quite rational, too.

    You are far from alone FutureInterest. your feelings are common. i came on this forum for a very similar reason.

    It's absurd playing a game i dont understand. It completely ruins the experience and makes the whole thing pointless.

    bit you did mention formulas. i will be pleasantly surprised and completely turned around if there are formulas available.. know, ye, of such? or are these formulae of mythic lore?

    Good insight burgerclart unfortunately the developers are Not likely to share the damage calculation formula. Based on regular computer games experience you should know what the stats mean, further insight is held by more experienced players which is shared within alliance.

    i don't like following my own crap but.. well my current issue is with life steal, you c. It's either really buggy or needs serious explanations from what i am experiencing.

    ShoutOut, you seemed quite interested in the game mechanics in that bug post about it. Am i prob better to just take this set of hades runes off for now, yeh?

    Not really, i don't care about the formula behind at all, and i don't like to worry about the game mechanics.

    To me, fun to play is the most important thing. If you ask me, i'd say formula will spoil the whole thing.

    You don't need those formula to know how to play...
