  • Belt of the architect

    Quick question before I purge my belt...

    The +15% damage resistance for blighted, is that just to self, or to blighted allies - the answer will determine for me how useful this gear item is.

    Thanks.

        Then it would say self, no? Like if it mentions a faction I instantly think that it's for allies.

            Robes of the Architect has same kind of description... "15% all effects resists for blighted"

            They don't actually say "allies".

            And yet, Aeducan's Hammer, it can only be warn by dwarves. The description says 10% health to dwarves.

            I put an epic bronto out there, with a dace that doesn't have the hammer and compared it to an epic bronto with a dace that has the hammer. There is clearly a health boost on bronto from that. (although not 10% of his final health, it's 10% of his base health )

            Agree with Dumat on the confirmation.

              It's for Blighted Allies, yes. If a group is mentioned, it means it's for allies of that group.

                Thank you for the clarification! It's easy enough to test with power or health as you can see the stats, but on these no-see-ums it can be a little tricky.

                  Well that's cool - much better item than I feared, will have to keep those belts and re-gear my blighted heroes as a result!

                    And that's to himself too right?, That's a 15% to all blighted, so in a full blight squad that would mean 75% all resistance

                      yes and no. Yes to himself (self always counts with allies), but the way damage resist calculates, it's not a straight addition. DR stacks in a multiplicative manner - or rather, it's applied to damage in a multiplicative manner. So if you start with 10,000 damage incoming, you'd see it reduced in a 5x 15% DR equipped squad as 10,000 * 0.85 * 0.85 * 0.85 * 0.85 * 0.85, for a total of 4437 damage incoming.

                        ok...my bad, was thinking of the other one that gives 15% all res, so in that case, it adds up to a 75% all res, not DR...took me some time a while back to understand DR

                        BTW, in that calculation, u have five *0.85, im assuming that would be in the case that all 5 toons have this gear on, right?, and that the same would be happen if a toon with no DR of its own or if he has 15% DR and u gear it with 5-4 pieces of gear that each has 15% DR, right?......IF SO, just out of curiosity...say i have a toon that has no DR but i give it 5 pieces of gear each with 15% DR and 3 other toons give it each 20% DR to that first toon, and he gets hit...does that mean tha his DR calculation would be XXXXX damage *.85*.85*.85*.85*.85*.8*.8*.8????, when or where or how does it cap at 85% DR?

                        Is there a cap for all res?, could you go 300% all resistance for example

As such, posts containing transcripts or results of your interactions with Customer Support will be edited or deleted. Keep in mind that your friend's case may not be exactly like your case, so the results of your request may differ from the results of your friend. Customer Support will not discuss the details of any player's case with any other player, but will provide support to you under our established, confidential policies. Asking why your request was resolved differently than another player will result in your post being deleted.

                        Violation of these terms is grounds for removal from EA Capital Games games.


                        What should I do if I see objectionable material on the forums?
                        It is important that members recognize the real-time nature of this forum: the moderators cannot always monitor the contents of posted messages, and as such depend upon you to inform them when participants or their messages are violating our policy as stated here. You must also recognize that they cannot respond immediately to such notices and that some time may pass before any warranted action is taken.

                        To contact a moderator, please use the Flag Post function on the post represented by a flag:


                        What happens if I break the rules?
                        At best, your post will be edited by one of the moderators and you will be issued a warning. If the offense is more serious your post will be deleted. Posting "why was my post edited/deleted?" etc. will only make matters worse, so please don't. If a moderator has not sent you a message stating why, please send the Lead Moderator a message asking for a reason.

                        Should you have already been issued warnings and continue to break the rules, you will be issued an infraction - your posting privileges will be disabled for three days, but you will still be able to view the forums as a guest.

                        For persistent and deliberate rule-breakers your account will be "Banned". That means you are no longer welcome on these forums and/or games and your account will no longer function in them. If you re-register, your new account will be banned as well.

                        Posting Suggestions
                        In the attempt to create a compromise where everyone is happy, the following suggestions are also recommended:

                        1. Be civil and courteous. This forum is visited by people from all over the world, of different ages, genders, religions, and backgrounds, and are each entitled to their own opinion. Keep in mind that in most cases, posts are not intended to offend. If you find yourself taking offense at a post, take a step back and contact the person directly, or appeal to a moderator for arbitration. Don't make the situation worse by posting in anger and lashing out at the original poster. Also, see Flaming, Right to Privacy, and Hatred.

                        2. Make sure that your message topics fit the topic description of the forum in which you are posting. This is for your own benefit - for example, a question regarding a bug or problem should be posted in the Feedback section under the appropriate heading.

                        3. Use the search function before posting, particularly if the question is problem oriented. Most technical questions have been answered before, and solutions are freely available. Additionally, before posting a bug, check the Known Issues thread to quickly see if the staff is already aware, and to find the discussion thread about that issue.

                        4. Make sure that you have followed #3 before posting

                        5. Read the sticky threads at the top of each forum - they are there for a reason, and generally contain information relevant to the forum and/or game.

                        6. Don't quote the entire message that you're responding to, only the pertinent passage. This makes it easier to read for other users.

                        7. If you find it easier to express yourself en français, auf Deutsch, en español, in Nederlands, in Italiano, or any other language, post in the International Discussion forum. Hopefully someone who speaks the same language as you will be able to assist you. All posts in other sections (non-International) of the forums must be in English, so please make use of Google Translate if you need assistance with translation. Posting in English will allow the widest range of people to assist you.

                        In addition to the Forum Rules, you are bound to the general EA Terms of Service both on these forums and in the game. Links to the TOS are as follows:

                        EA TOS English
                        EA TOS French
                        EA TOS German
                        EA TOS Russian
                        EA TOS Spanish

                        By registering and posting on these forums, you agree to be bound to the rules and disciplinary actions set forth above.
