Plate armor discrepancy on damage reduction in Wiki

Recommended Posts

Among these two links, the damage reduction listed for plate armor does not match. So which one is true then?


In this link's table below, plate armor is listed at 65% damage reduction.

Meanwhile in this second link it says: "Like drake hide armour, plate armour made from iron has a base damage reduction of 70% at 100 quality.".

you have 5% base dr so 70% is correct

@KodyI believe the second link is outdated.

 

Plate armor used to have an added DR to the player of 70%.

 

Now it has been reduced to 65% for iron and can be bumped to 67.5% if the set is made of steel.

 

Heard OR mention a 5% base DR before, but don't see how that's remotely relevant when discussing the DR of a certain armor, as that supposed 5% doesn't really have anything to do with the armor. It has something to do with you while in the armor, but it's just misleading at best as far as I can tell.

 

If you insist on accounting for the 5% base DR, then old plate had 75% and new iron plate has 70% or 72.5% if it's steel.

Either way, it has gone down, and the second link most likely reflects the old value.

I see. Thanks! 🙂

 

So does the 2.5% steel DR apply to chain armor too?
