Attack Penalty for level?

I'm wondering if you are x levels below a mob what is the attack penalty depending on x. Does it decrease your attack by a certain percent?

EX) You are level 40 attacking a level 44 mob. Maybe there is a 20% penalty to your attack, while attacking a level 42 mob maybe there is a 10% penalty to your attack, while attacking a level 40 mob results in no penalty.

For what I know there is no penality based on mob lv gap, but for my experience I think there is an accuracy penality maybe, but only if the difference is great.

There is a penalty for attacking monsters above your lvl.

For example when you try attacking a monster 9 lvls above you will not do much dmg. As soon as it is say 4 or 5 lvls above you you can damage it.

I believe the decrease in attack is not necessarily % wise but it could be a fixed number. If your gear is good enough you can overcome it which I think indicates that the penalty is a fixed number. I haven't been able to find any research on this matter.

Thanks. You make a good point, it is probably a fixed number. I couldn't find anything on the matter either which is why I asked. I guess someone will have to figure it out first.
