Cloak of Shadow

I asked a azn to cast COS on my pally today, his COS should -63% of my def, but when I checked my def, it only drop from 13k+ to 12k+, nothing close to 63%. Is that just a display bug or it only reduces the def from the armors not the skills(such as holy shield, shout, iron skin etc.)?

It's because CoS only lowers the base defense (pre defiance, holyshield etc,)

Oh, so let's say I have a Lv35 COS(-95% def), my oppo. has 2000 def b4 casting holy shield. After I cast my COS, his base def will redeced to only 100, so even if he casts holy shield, it won't help much becasue his base def is very low?

If a pala has 3000 defense before defiance / holy shield , and 30.000 after holy shield and defiance , then -90% from CoS will make the 30k only 27,3k (30.000 - 3000 * 0,9). That's an asswhooping 2,7k less defense. :) Which doesn't sound to much. You still have a way to low chance to actually score a hit , so it's useless to pump CoS.

-light radius only works for the person wearing it. If you have -2 light radius on 1 of your items your vision will go down , not the other persons. And another thing , With cloak of shadows you already have the least sight to begin with. IIRC the normal light radius was 13. 8 was the least you can go and 18 is the max. CoS already brings it down to 8.

Well this isn't D1. :) And the light radius thing was like that in classic too IIRC. so it's been like that since the beginning of DII.
