Armor Penetration, or AP, is a character rating found on equipment. It has the effect of negating an opponent's Damage Resistance by contributing to Resistance Ignored.

Cap[edit]

Armor penetration cannot increase a target's susceptibility to damage beyond reducing their damage resistance to zero, which means that armor penetration has no effect past the point where a character's resistance ignored reaches an opponent's damage resistance. In PvE it is generally accepted that normal enemies have 22% damage resistance, and bosses have 24%. Because of this, achieving 24% resistance ignored is effectively the "cap" for AP in PvE. In a PvP context, the amount of AP that can be effective depends upon the damage resistance of a given opponent.

Armor Penetration contribution to Resistance Ignored[edit]

This section is incomplete. You can help by adding to it.

This table shows the relationship between Armor Penetration and the potential for Resistance Ignored. The relationship is a complicated one, because the effect of a point of AP is dependent upon how much AP a character is at already. AP seems to get more effective as it is stacked, up to a certain point at which diminishing returns take effect.
