Im pretty much a hardcore theory crafter on ps4 who knows pretty almost everthing about game mechanics, stats, scaling...by always looking at patch notes and folwing streamers since eso drop.
However, there is somthing I can figure out at all and I wonder if its just a broken thing in the game;
I am duelling my buddy magplar vs stam dk and feel like i am taking to much damage eventhough im running a well roundeed build and thus trying to investigate.
For my test i made a max resist dps build with defense following relevant stats vs mag dk:
28k spell resist, 23k physical, 3.5k crit resist, 21%direct dmg resist, 10%elm resist, 6% flat resist nord passive.
My buddies offesive stats are 12k penetration 21%direct dmg, 8% elm dmg, 0CRIT DMG, everyting else not relevant for test
He hits me for 3.4k non crit, and 4.8k crits on whips.
My crit resist should completly negate that crit damage! But if I lower my crit resistance I take even more damage, HOW?
Furthermore, his whips tooltip is 8k and with his penetration versus my resistance+ batlle spirit he should close hit to 3k max. Somehow though he hits me as he would put my resistance to 0 and thus when i switch to my normal light amor set up he barly hit me any harder.
Another thing is for some reason 20% at the time I cant weap swap when rooted. Is that a new bug?
I must be missing something here pls help cause this is very frustrating. The inly real viable build due to this running is is 5 shackle 5 spinners and 2 malubeth which i really dont like cause of malue cheese and as i hate being a hypocrite complaing about these bs set ups. I wanna make a decent chesse free magplar build but am possibly to much of a stam guy latly that im missing some fact of mechanic.
One more thing wich is very similar is that my stam blade hits his stam dk for 3.6k suprise and 4.3k crits. My tooltip on that is 11k and i reduce his residence to 200 so basically nothing. My crit dmg is 80% and he has 2.4k crit resit.
Other ppl i hit 7-9k suprise but ehy not him? Does penetrate and resist not work properly??
