Armor

(Redirected from Defensive)

Wearing Armor reduces the damage received from an opponent.

Very simply, armor rating represents the percentage of the damage reduction. For example, a 40.00 rated piece of armor reduces damage taken by 40%, so a 1000 damage hit actually only deals 600 damage.

The following equation can be used to determine the damage received while wearing armor:

D(A) = D(I) * (1-A/100)

where D(I) is the Initial damage dealt by an opponent, A is the armor rating of the piece being worn, and D(A) is the resultant damage received with this armor equipped.

With certain Companies this can become even more powerful. 10* clothing stores provide a 20% buff to armor (effectively turning a 40.00 piece into a 48.00 piece), and 7* Private Security Firms provide a 25% buff when wearing a full set (helmet, chest, gloves, pants, boots).
