The only people who can correct you are devs with access to source code, because this thing has never been clearly explained beforesaupreusse wrote: ↑Thu May 28, 2020 12:26 pmNo it wont. It is a (attacker main stat - defender toughness) calculation that plays in the dmg calc. And afaik it was capped at max 75% of attacker main stat which usually isnt higher than 1050. Correct me if im wrong.Sulorie wrote: ↑Thu May 28, 2020 11:46 amI don't think this is how the cap of dmg reduction by toughness is applied.
Let's say you totally ignore armor/resists and only toughness is the only defensive stat.
It depends on the attack you receive, to calculate how much dmg is reduced by toughness. On a high dmg attack, even 1050 toughness won't reduce 75% of it's remaining damage (after applying armor/resist mitigation first).
The toughness nerf was applied to fix edge cases, where in some instances ppl got like 1 or low digit dmg from hits.
From what i remember the "75% toughness cap" was added after a change that made toughness reduce ability damage past enemy's mainstat bonus resulting in defensive tanks hitting enemies for 1 damage (whereas before if you had 1000 toughness vs 500 strength you basically waste half of your tough), and the cap itself was applied not to toughness but to whole ability damage.
How it works right now i've no idea and i'd love to get a true answer from a source dev
