    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.
