    Default Pwned by Pyro Skill

    http://i650.photobucket.com/albums/u...-18_153353.jpg

    So I get hit by a 4653 crit Fulminate + 1315 crit Flame Bolt at timestamp 15:31:34 followed by a 1135 (non-crit) Inferno at timestamp 15:31:35 for a grand total of 7103 dmg over 1 second. Sadly I'm not that skilled and only have 6227 health at the spec and gear I currently posses.

    7103 dmg seems kinda ridiculous given that I have 10 pts in PvP Soul (only P2 currently but I specced 5/5 Arcane Defenses which reduces spell dmg I take from players by 15%), plus I had 5/5 Shield of Faith in Justicar tree (reduces dmg taken by 15%), 45 Fire resist which should reduces Fire dmg by 7% and 141 Valor (3.8% dmg reduces from players).

    So... either some (or all) of these reductions are not functioning properly or I am getting majorly out-skilled.

    PS - If the image URL isn't working post and I'll try and fix it.

    But...but...

    You should have outplayed him. Have you considered using CC?

    Don't worry. Dominators squirrel is getting nerfed so that should solve ALL of the problems with pyro damage!

    You must not have been bunny hopping.
    Don't mind me, I'm just being an idiot.

    What you did there, I see it.

    I wasn't trying to beat a dead horse here, but I'm actually concerned (perhaps convinced is more appropriate) that the damage reductions are not being accounted for properly.

    And yes, the Pyro in question had the red wings on, but still with the dmg reductions there is no way he should have done that much dmg. I mean, if dmg reduction is additive I had 40.8% reduction to player fire dmg and still took 7103 in 1 second. Which means WITHOUT all those reductions I would have taken 12,000 dmg (approx).

    Now, perhaps the reductions are multiplicative and not additive which would then give me only a 35.4% reduction against player fire damage. That approximately equals 10995 dmg.

    So... anyone else test that these work or how they work together?

    Yeah, it was pretty cool when that mage hit me with his 5.9k fulminate crit. I have about 5% damage reduction from valor and about 10% fire damage reduction from fire resists. Kinda ******** that I can still be one shotted by a mage...

    4600 Fulminate? It's pretty low.

    I crited people for 7500 with it (with WF buff obviously).

    And, yes, you need to l2p. /dance works at times on really goodnatured pyros:P

    Well, perhaps the dmg reductions are working. Without 40.8% fire dmg reduction that Fulminate would have been 7860. Or if it is multiplicative it (so without 35.4% fire dmg reduction) it would have been 7202 fire dmg.

    In line with the dmg you have seen.

    No debuffs on me... I just entered the losing codex and when I jumped off the cliff I saw the pyro and he hit me while I was still mounted. Didn't catch any buffs he had sadly.

    I like running behind a tree. The goodnatured pyros usually come after me!

    They usually do not run by themselves, regardless of their claims of taking on 3 or more people. They will usually have four or more rows of buffs - there will be somebody hitting you with an increased crit chance and increased dmg.

    Generally speaking, I do not trust the Rift combat logs - do not trust the math - etc.
