    Amp and the Concentrate Barb

    Ok lets say i found a nice eth rare balrog with ctc amp. If i make a concentrate barb and encounter a PI in hell with 100% physical resist then that amp would break immunity. If i encounter a PI with stoneskin mod then i'm screwed hehe (or switch to zerk) My question is for PvP how does the game see 50%pdr? Is it like 50% physical resist so amp = 50 - 100 = player takes 50% more dmg?

    As far as I know, yes, that is how it works in pvp, though we might want someone else to pipe in with a validation.

    amp is -100% PDR and 50% is the same. they act in the same way (it seems that you know how amp works), so yes they end up with -50% PDR, or 50% more damage from physical

    Hehe thks guys for your inputs :D It just happens that necros and barbs are the class i play most hehe. Also lets say u get a slvl 7 concentrate charges from a barb helm. Concentrate grants more AR as a syngergy to bash and stun attacks. Would this helm grant a more effective bash/stun on a barb merc ala marrows/carrion ring?
