Armor-ignoring damage

From Guild Wars Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

Armor-ignoring damage describes damage that is always the same amount regardless of the target's armor rating or level. This property is independent of damage type.

Game mechanics[edit]

Properties[edit]

The damage is a fixed value always defined by a skill. That is, a skill that says it deals 50 damage to a foe will deal exactly 50 damage. As such the damage:

  • Is always the same regardless of target's armor rating;
  • Ignores character level, e.g. a level 1 character deals the same amount of armor-ignoring damage as a level 20 character;
  • Does not benefit from base or bonus armor penetration;

The damage can still be affected by damage modifiers which affect all damage, i. e. damage reduction from skills such as Protective Spirit and Shielding Hands, and damage increase from skills such as Frenzy.
