    Eth Item defence

    If you have an ethereal item with plain +defence is the defence formula like this?

    1,5 * (base def + bonus def)

    Or, like this?

    (1,5 * base def) + bonus def

    Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

    I believe it's (1.5 * base) + bonus defense

    The second.

    Edit- See my avatar for an illustration of my frustration of getting beaten to the punch.

    Neither, it's...

    {(Base defense * (1 + Etherealness)) * (1 + Enhanced Defense)} + Bonus Defense

    Bonus defense is the phrase for the affix that simply adds defense.[/Nitpicking]

    {{Base defense * (1 + Etherealness)} * (1 + Enhanced Defense)} + Bonus Defense

    It's a pain having three sets of brackets on a computer.

    You've forgotten that D2 rounds down at every step, so the formula is :

    [[Base Defense * 1.5] * (1 + Enhanced Defense)] + Bonus Defense

    where [ ] = rounding down.
