    Crushing Blow in PvP

    Hello I've been reading all things i've found on crushing blow, still it's unclear for me this two things in PvP:

    Lets imagine Amazon vs Barbarian, Ama with 25% chance of crushing blow, Barb 6000 life, 50% damage reduce.

    Ama hits barb with crushing blow. Now barb looses 6000/20 = 300 life, or (((6000/20)/6)/2) = 25 life?

    1/6 from pvp penalty, 1/2 from dr %

    Thx for your time, probably you will take of my doubts Hf :worship:

    IIRC Crushing Blow does not go through the PvP dmg penalty, because it's not dmg. It's merely a modification of the amount of life a monster/players has.

    The barb would lose 150 life.

    i thought the pvp penalty for CB was 1/16th, surely then that would be 375?

    I like Crushing Blow when I fight 8ppl Baal. But all I know comes from Arreat Summit and diabloii.net. I don’t doubt it is true. However I test it many times vs monsters.

    So, Barb will lose ((6000-(Ama Bow damage/2)/6)/20)/2, 1/20 - CB, 1/2 - DR, 1/6 - PvP penalty.

    Check AS again, you seem to have a very old copy, it had some initial errors regarding the ranged modifications. Geoff missunderstood me. And it is also now correct in that CB applies first.

    It seems I must update my AS base. Now it holds:
    So Barb takes damage of: (6000/20)/2=150 + (Addition damage with Bow). And Barb must have full life, of couse.
    RTB was correct, except Barb will also take normal (non CB) Amazon Bow damage.
