Separate Damage Reduction Boosts[edit | edit source]

These boosts directly modify damage taken and are not additive like normal DR - they are multiplicative instead. They are calculated independently to normal DR as well as each other, and are not affected by Calamity's DR soft cap.

These effects are independent and unique from the ones listed above.

Armor Penetration[edit | edit source]

Armor penetration is a statistic that reduces the defense of the player's targets. For instance, a Purple Slime normally has 6 defense. If the player has 5 Armor penetration, then the slime will be taken to have 1 defense instead.

Vanilla Changes[edit | edit source]

Defensive accessory modifiers now additionally increase damage reduction, with rarer defense modifiers granting a larger damage reduction bonus.

  • The damage reduction bonus increases by 0.25% for every point of defense increased. (i.e the Hard modifier grants a 0.25% damage reduction bonus while the Warding modifier grants a 1% damage reduction bonus)

Damage reduction (DR) is soft capped at 33%. Any amount exceeding the cap will be 90% less effective. Additionally, any amount exceeding this cap will be added to the player's defense.

Several items had their defense and damage reduction values changed.

  • The Worm Scarf now only provides 10% damage reduction instead of 17%.
  • A full set of Gladiator armor now provides 21 defense instead of 7.
  • A full set of Obsidian armor now provides 19 defense instead of 16.
  • The defense of the Hallowed Plate Mail now provides 18 defense and the Hallowed Greaves now provide 13 defense.
  • A full set of Solar Flare armor now provides 94 defense instead of 78.
