I hit 100% damage reduction last night.

Decided to hop in a level 105 dungeon when I was only 65 to see what would happen.

    Can't see because flash player won't update at work.

    Someone mind giving me the highlights?

    I am assuming at level 65 with level 100 mobs attacking you, you'd still get destroyed in 1 shot but who knows

    With 100% damage reduction they do 0 damage. I kill a few mobs, then go kill the boss.

    That's pretty great =D

    Confirms that monster level doesn't trump damage reduction.

  • Some attacks like saw traps can still cut right through 100% mitigation :P

    Yep! But it also works both ways, out leveling monsters isn't as good as it is in other games. I'm actually surprised that it works this way.

    That is correct!

    Traps on the ground or in the tile-set eat right through damage mitigation. Luckily they are avoidable :)

    Also, (I think) the ice breath from the snow yeti's or a debuff their mage casts reduces your damage reduction so they can still output a **** ton of damage really fast if you are being dumb (aka, this http://www.twitch.tv/tieryal/b/334104332)

    Hello. I ve been watching your stream for a long time already since before u died on zerker in mid 20s due to wierd oneshot. I am glad to see another smart person who guessed to stack reduction. I am DampenMagicVII highest HCElite Embermage currently with also 100% dmg reduction, i tried 105 maps a few days ago, but they dont give xp and loot cant be weared. I am doing my lvl dungeons for some good loot and xp. If u need dps, let me know. My steam id is bulletzgofast. We can duo breeze through any map with if udlike that :) If not, thats fine. Just wanted to give u probs for having critical thinking developed.

  • Wow that's pretty crazy, nearly **** mode, maybe there should be a damage reduction cap, say 75%. Personally i would be bored to death after getting 100% damage reduction.

    Pretty cool to see though, wasn't sure if this was possible, gonna have to farm grell some more to try this myself.

    Yeah it's crazy, definitely an oversight.

    Not to mention getting to that point must be pretty boring, farming the same boss over and over and over.

  • It's not really that complicated as it seems, there is quite a few items uniques in the game with ADR% mod on them, and a few of them are 10%, there is also ADR% ember that are 5% that drop in later areas. Thankfully runic plans to fix it with a cap next patch, I'm glad I'm not the only one who sees it as gamebreaking.

    Where has Runic said they will fix this with a patch? Not doubting but just couldn't find it.
