Hi, I'm not here to complain, I'm here to see if I'm doing something wrong.

The ability "Surprise Attack" in the NB tree doesn't seem to be doing what I 'expect' it to do.
I chose Surprise attack over hidden blade because I use 2 daggers (so my pins might actually 'poke')
At rank 4 it reduces armor on the target by 40%.
Logically that tells me they should only be 60% resistant to physical blows I deal compared to what they were prior.
(I tested this on 40 mobs, 20 with and 20 without Surprise attack)
Using only light attacks for all the tests;
Without Surprise attack my average hit would be 76 (prettymuch flat)
With it, I'd hit for 80.
Difference of only 4 points...
Now as I understand it (And I'm not AMAZING at math so my math may be off but..)
76 * .4 = 30.4
Which means my attacks should be just a pinch above 100 (non crits)
Is there something I'm missing? Am I doign the math wrong and being too 'straightforward' with my calcs or is the ability really not doing as intended?
