It's kind of a no-brainer really.LeorictheDark said:I've been playing D2 since it came out. I put it down a year or so ago and have recently picked it up again. What does "damage reduced by x" mean?? How does it compare to "damage reduced by x%"??
You mean "If an enemy hits you for 100 damage, you will take 5% less damage, or 95 damage.". It just sounded a little confusing, thats allteksyn said:If your item says "Damage reduced by 5%"
If an enemy hits you for 100 damage, you will only take 5% of that, or 95 damage.
It would depend on the situation. Obviously having only 9 or 10 damage reduction isn't much, but then again, having only 9 or 10% MF isn't much either, or 9 or 10% FHR/IAS/FBR. You would need to plan your build/items around itLeorictheDark said:Thanks alot! I thought thats how it worked. I don't quite understand why everybody says damage reduction is so cool. I can understand %ages but not single numbers. who cares if you get hit for 300 dmg and have it reduced by 9 or 10?
