I lose 7.5% of my DPS... only on bosses and anything else with 50% reduction. This would barely affect me. I would get a huge damage increase on everything else.

Math: 0.55*1.70 = 0.935

0.55 is 50% reduction plus 10% ignore
1.70x on final damage

And Ender is even more of an end because now those stacks of numbers show anywhere! Instead of 125 on orange mushrooms : 3

edit: if for some reason final damage is multiplicative (no idea why it would be), 0.55*1.3*1.4 = 1.001[/quote]

Can you elaborate on the math.

Just for reference, this is a massive change.
Paladins use to have ignore elemental resistance then they removed it.
How many paladins do you see walking around now

I don't see anything about kanna lol. But luminous with the ender and pdr buff nerf. It seems Kannas are fine.[/quote]

ofc kanna/hayato not in kms anyways, so kms has no right to change/revamp kanna/hayato.
if any we will always get the revamp from jms untill kms adds sengoku class.


this is a whole new different situation, if taht 50% dmg isnt finnal dmg with removing elemental ignore, surely there wont be any mages left besides kanna/bishop.
but it turns out that nexon isnt that stupid afterall.

@ddmagnus: Most bosses have 50% element reduction. Currently, stuff like ele reset and arcane pitch ignore 100% of that, so the reduction means nothing. If you were to not cast these skills, you'll do half damage on bosses (plus any reductions from pdr). After the change, all ele reset skills are 10% effective, so you'll do 55% damage, since you ignore 10% of the boss's 50% reduction. But all of the ele reset skills now have final damage boosts passively added to it. Final damage means this boost is added at the very end of all other damage calculations, so it's far more powerful than Total Damage.

For I/L, F/P mages, you get a 50% final damage boost with your 10% elemental resist ignore, so the math there would be 0.55*1.5 = 0.825 damage on monsters with 50% elemental resistance. This is a 17.5% loss in damage from what you currently have.

For Lumi, apparently along with the final damage boost on the ele reset skill, another skill also gives a final damage boost. I'm not sure whether it's additive or multiplicative, but I'm guessing it's most likely additive. If it's additive, Lumi loses 7.5% damage (0.55*1.70 = 0.935). If it's multiplicative, Lumi gains 0.1% damage (0.55*1.3*1.4 = 1.001).

And of course, on anything without elemental resistance of any sort, all mages will be doing significantly higher damage.

I wasn't really angry in that post. I'm just blunt.
I think it's silly that you'd think casting time would be affected by weapon speed because it's too far-fetched, but you'll totally buy the fact that magic is even a thing.

As for the logical reasons why I'd want it to be like that, it's because of consistency. Mages should have to deal with weapon speed like everyone else. That was the original point of the wand/staff split.
