With all the changes to standardize combat mechanics. Do you have plans in the future to change the LA Concentration passive to mirror the DW Twin Blade & Blunt and 2H Heavy Weapons passives in which wearing 5 pieces of LA will ignore 10/20% Spell Resistance of the target?
You have already removed the flat rate penetration from the Nightblade's Surprise Attack skill. So I was wondering whether you will continue to move forward with this standard and cascade the changes to all flat rate penetration sources outside Major or Minor Breach and Fractures.
The Weapon skills (DW/2H) passives have a conditional clause to lower the target's physical resistance; Hence, the character must wield maces. This %penetration applies to all damaging skills that are mitigated by physical resistance. This is notably different than penetrating magic from the destruction staff, which only applies its %penetration to destruction staff skills. It's restrictive in context that it does not apply %penetration to all damaging skills mitigated by spell resistance. Whereas, LA concentration passive does and accumulative with penetrating magic.
There is no conditional clauses to LA concentration or penetrating magic i.e. The character must wield a specific weapon. In an abstract way, LA concentration then becomes comparable without condition to the weapon skill passives. So, I was curious whether ZOS had plans to change the LA passive into a %percentage penetration to lower the target's spell resistance.
Correct me if im wrong but there is no aoe major breach source. Thats probably one of the reasons light armor gives spell penetration.
Change it would imply a major balance issue.
Magicka builds are also more reliant on Precise (less crit from sets, and no Dagger equivalent
