Armour is a rating that measures a character's physical damage mitigation.

Armour rating can be increased by wearing equipment, taking certain passive skills, using spells such as Molten Shell, and drinking Granite Flasks.

Mechanics[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

Damage reduction from armour only reduces physical damage taken. Elemental damage and damage-over-time are not affected.

The amount of damage reduction is a function of armour rating and the damage taken. Damage reduction is capped at 90%.

Damage Reduction = Armour / ( Armour + (12 * Damage) )

The fact that damage reduction diminishes against more damaging hits means it is difficult to know exactly how much damage is reduced. As a rule of thumb, to achieve 50% damage reduction you will need an armour rating equal to twelve times that of the damage taken in a single hit. For example, 50% damage reduction against a 100 damage hit requires 1200 armour rating.

For example, if you have 1200 armour rating this chart indicates how much damage will be reduced by:

The vertical axis is damage reduction percent. The bottom axis is original damage.

Passives[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

There are passive skill nodes that grant additional evasion or a combination of bonuses including evasion.

Armour[编辑 | 编辑源代码]

These passives increase armour rating by a percentage.

In the case of Iron Reflexes, armour is increased by an amount equal to total evasion. In exchange, evasion is reduced to 0.
