Notes[edit]

  • In PvP, most physical damage characters carry an elemental damage weapon for use against Warriors (who often have less armor against elemental damage). This stance can be quite dangerous to use since, upon seeing it used, attackers can simply swap weapons.
  • This skill is often used by Warriors when farming in the Underworld.
Bug Bug.Similar to Cracked Armor, this skill will not lower your armor rating below 60 or your "core" armor rating, if your "core" armor rating is lower than 60.
Bug Bug.If you use a skill or combination of skills and effects that, after subtraction of the penalty from Physical Resistance, still grants +26 or more armor rating against elemental damage, Physical Resistance's armor penalty does not function. See also armor calculation.
