How good is Crevice in the Armor?
Lets see…

Bow Test

Thrall in Silent Legion = 880 Armor

Dragonbone Bow = 18 damage, 24% armor pen.
Dragonbone Arrows = 18 damage, 9% armor pen.

Results Summary

Crevice in the Armor is multiplicative, so if the weapon has 8% armor pen, Crevice will increase it to 12%.
If the weapon has 0% armor pen, Crevice will increase it to 0% (It does nothing!)

So in the last test, Telith’s Sorrow effectively had 45% armor penetration.
The more armor pen a weapon has, the better Crevice in the Armor will be.

Crevice in the Armor is very bad when used with low armor pen weapons but can provide decent results when used with a high armor pen weapon. I’m not sure it’s worth the points either way.

Armor Penetration will of course show diminished results against targets with lower armor values and be nearly useless against lightly armored targets, such as wild creatures and humans wearing light armor.

Thanks for posting your test results, I really appreciate it.
Now all that’s left to figure out is how effective armor penetration is against light armor.


#3

No problem.

Not very effective at all because it’s ignoring a percentage of the armor value, not the actual damage mitigation. I did some armor pen testing on creatures and discovered they all have armor, but very little. So armor pen is really weak against them.

That’s good to know, thanks again.
