ignores targets defense?

Im not sure if this is correct but the higher someones defense is the higher my AR has to be to hit them, does this mean that if I have a weapon that ignores targets defense I dont need any AR?
If this is true does it work in PvP as well?

Nope, ignore target defence does not work in PVP despite 90% of b.net believing it does!

-% target defence does work though, although its reduced by half I believe.

Chance to Hit

100 * AR / (AR + DR) * 2 * alvl / (alvl + dlvl)
AR = Attack Rating; alvl = Level of Attacker; dlvl = Level of Defender; DR = Defense Rating

Note: Attacks will never have less than 5% chance to hit nor more than 95% chance to hit.

Final chance to hit is truncated.

Example

I have an AR of 10,000. I am lvl85 (attacker) and the Defender is lvl90 with a defense of 5000

= 100 * AR / (AR + DR) * 2 * alvl / (alvl + dlvl)
= 100 * 10000/ (10000 + 5000) * 2 * 85/ ( 85 + 90)
= 1000000/(10000 + 5000) * 2 * 85/(85 + 90)
= 1000000/(15000) * 2 * 85/(175)
= 1000000/(15000) * 2 * 85/(175)
= 66.667 * 2 * 85/175
= 133.333 * 85/175
= 11333.333/175
= 64.761% chance to hit.

Base Attack Rating

(Your attack rating without +AR or +Ar% from equipment, charms or skills)

= (Dex * 5) - 35 + ClassBonus

The ClassBonus is:

20 for Barbarians and Paladins
15 for Assassins
5 for Amazons and Druids
-10 for Necromancers
-15 for Sorceresses

Example

Any lvl Necromancer with 200 Dex.

= (Dex * 5) - 35 + ClassBonus
= (200 * 5) - 35 + (-10)
= (1000) - 35 + (-10)
= 965 + (-10)
= 955AR

Just ignores targets defense alone won't guarantee you a successful hit, you also need to factor in your level and attack rating. Also, I believe block will still effect you fully, even if you ignore your opponents defense. I'm 99.9% sure that the only effect that can lower an opponents chance to block besides your level and their dexterity is concentration aura ( 20% chance at an uninterrupted hit).
PvM ofc, ITD doesn't work in PvP
