Ack, I hit enter on accident. Anyway, looking at my numbers from a fight against an orange, wards are gonna have to get a bump up in strength.Ward absorbtion:98 51 45 49 51 82 18The 98 and 82 were special moves, the 18 was not a full block bc I was out of warding and the rest hit me.AC mitigated damage:85 22 29 40 35 95 23 52 30 36 42 21the 85, 40, 95, 52, 42 were all special moves so the mitigated damage was 22 29 35 23 30 36 21.While wards where hit for 45-51, mitigated damage was for 21-36.Based on this info, it seems that even a mystic at 21 my AC is able to reduce the damage taken by 40%+-, given that all other class heals take effect AFTER armor mitigation, ward absorption should be +40% higher than what the duid/clerics get. Seems simple enough to me.

<DIV>You are supporting your thesis on the basis of one set of seven numbers? The trend that you see could be coincidence and one set of numbers does not validate empirical evidence. Try turning logging on and gather about 30 sets with and without armor and then report back.</DIV>
