So screwing around on my rank 4 spider today. Got Audacity 7 still, so running pretty defensive on the corruptions. Crit Protection 1, 2, Tactical Mit 1, 2, 3, Resistance 1. Also using the ranged spider pet for the bonus tactical mitigation. With all this I got this not 5 minutes ago.
Venderro scored a devastating hit with Ents go to War on Galethil for 10,008 Fire damage to Morale.
Now get me if I'm wrong, but pretty sure that seems a bit high given the amount of tactical mitigations and critical reduction.
Numbers on defense are:
Tactical Mitigation - 42.7%
Critical reduction - 6.8%
Plus an additional 10% reduction from born of shadow.
So did I miss some form of nerf or buff recently?
