    Default Riftstalker buffs/combos

    Ok I just started leveling my Rogue 3 days ago. I have got him up to level 33 almost 34.

    I started looking at Riftstalker and there buffs / buffs from combo's. First off before using any buffs my armor is 1447 my hp is 2778. So when using Guardian Phase it should increase by 30% which should give me 3611, but it only gives me 3455. Now the armor buff aspect from Guardian Phase should give me 50% armor boost which should give me 2170, but it only gives me 2050. I also have Improved Guardian Phase which should give me even more hp which clearly the normal version doesn't even give the correct values so the improved is even more off.

    Then there's Guarded Steel which also doesn't give the correct value. Again my armor is 1447 without any buffs. With Guarded Steel I have 1929, again I also have the improved version of it which should give me 2025.


    After further thinking I'm starting to guess all these buffs are before talents, which may or may not be intended. I've been up for over 24hrs so I don't have the time to redo all the math.... so if it is before talents and that's the way there supposed to work then I apologize for wasting everyone's time...

    all those buffs work on the base amounts of your stats, before they are raised by other buffs/talents.

    Armour one especially for riftstalkers tends to already be 20% higher displayed value, so people see a less gain then they expect when using guardian phases +50% but thats just because your armour was 20% higher already.

    Basically it goes:

    Armour 100% - +20% from toughened soul - armour 120% - +50% from guardian phase - armour 170%

    Rather than

    Armour 100% - +20% from toughened soul - armour 120% - +50% from guardian phase - armour 180%
