Question about .08 arreats

I was wondernig how that -defense mod worked? does it work the same as the eth rune? or does it mean 15% of the persons total defense? does it add on to the eth runes mod? making it -48% defense? or are they calculated seperated, compounded one after another?

no. its -15% of persons base defense. they are combined like you said. so whatever you got +(-15%) would be the % of base defense reduced

You're wrong, it is only half of the listed percentage.

The -15% on 08 arreats reduces a player opponents base defence by 7.5%.

Yes, if you could somehow get -200% enemy defense you would always have a 95% chance of hitting (excluding blocking).

It works at half effectiveness in pvp -15% becomes -7.5% and it subtracts that % of the base defense from their total defense, so its not very efficient vs. barbs or paladins.

-% defense from items works on the total defense, making it very effective against those with massive defense. Of course, it's still halved against players.

just for clarification:Total defense means final defense the one on character screen,not the total enhanced defense%.Yes its fairly effective.Theoretically a fury with 25% defense cut (-12.5%) would hit more than a beast 80% more ar.

Except it doesn't help the other weapon if you dual wield.
