    1/6 poison? True or False?

    Hi every body, I'm new to the forum but new to the game. I heard the other day that in pvp, poison damage is reduced to 1/6 of what its supposed to do.
    Is this true because if so poison damage charms arent the best bet are they?:undecided:
    This sounds reasonable considering the DR is capped at 50% amoung other things...
    Thanks people

    All damage is reduced to 1/6 in pvp. Else characters dishing out 10k+ would be guaranteed a one-hit kill every time, and it would be boring.
    So also melee damage is 1/6 etc.
    Also, keep in mind that such things as resists and %dr also count in, so with 50%dr a physical hit would only do 1/12, and an elemental attack versus someone with 75%resists would do 1/24.

    Ah! thank you very much. that does make sence. So, since thats the case how does a bowazon make the most out of the charms she has if she wants to be succesful in pvp? DO i still use pdsc's or do i go to max dmg charms or for dex or any combination of the three?

    Nitpick: It's not 1/6th. It's 17%s. 1/6th is 16.7% rounded up. So it reduces it more than it should.
