    Default A question about Improved Damage Reduction

    Does Improved Damage Reduction I & II make a difference at high levels? I mean it is only 2 points of damage reduction right? Or am I missing something?


    Thank you

    I don't think it's worth taking, but you can check some barb builds to see if it is there or not, and decide for yourself

    In my experience one or two doesnt hurt (glancing blows). IF you gonna bother with 4-5 (though a combo of feats/enhancements), you better be able to get it to a passive stoneskin or your just waisting your time. In most situations you will need DR the caster will most likey have no issue spammin g you with stoneskin as your keeping agro off them, usually.

    The difference between DR 7/- and DR 9/- at level cap is negligible. I spent the APs elsewhere.

    its a game of tiny increments. if you want something big you have to buy it in half a dozen small pieces.

    its only 1-2 points, but where else can ya get 1-2 points?

    personaly id spend it elsewhere, i rarely find myself thinking 2 points would have made a difference.

    but when you think of it as two points every time you get hit, and add it up that way then its a lot different. if you got hit 200 times it would save you the damage of a heal.

    more likely than not you get healed for more hp than you have so often that there is already a surplus of hp more than a defficit

    I played AC2, so I log in everyday expecting to see a message that the servers will be ending in 4 months. As such, every day they don't is a good day!! Play like the world will end, because it will.

    Probably turbine devs shud also add +3 PRR to improved damage reduction, aka, picking up 2-3 would not only mean dr 2/adam or dr 3/adam, but a little 5-7% reduction generally from any physical source.
