Hunter Armor penetration or shield only!
« on: Mar 13, 2019; 01:41 PM »
Most other game when you want to build "Armor penetration" it goes against armor, but here on hellgate it's only for shield, or work on both armor & shield?

And wherever AP or SP was more then 100%, let's say 115%, it improve damage to!? or it stop at 100% as limit on this game?

There is no armor penetration.
Shield penetration have ofcourse maximum at 100%, but shield overload (bonus damage to shield) can be raised above the 100%.

Got it, many thanks

But this new for me, the mod with shield overload it's bonus damage against shield? i though it's for character to increase shield load per min!?

Shield overload is allways damage to enemy shield.
Character increase shield load is rare affix (this affix cannot appear on weapon mod, if remember correctly) named "shield recharge rate".

I have now 2 mod with 45% SOL, and the weapon has 25%, so that 115% more damage behind shield or only for shield?! in Short when the shield fall it's still do more 115% damage to HP Creep?

*I don't want to test it, sense the weapon i have it right now is good if i try without known i going to loos the good upgrade thew, that's way i ask you before :D

Shield overload raising only damage dealed to shield. If is shield gone, then weapon giving only common damage to monster HP.
If you playing Revival, then try farming on boss Squadro and his rings (100% shield penetration, 200% shield overload), on this rings you can very well observe the effects of these affixes.

So the shield penetration is better chose then, but hard to reach it to 100%, unlike SOL easy to get it to 100%, because there's to much kind of mode with SOL drop on game.

Thanks for tips Squadro that ring i need it  8)
