Why I'm posting this thread
: this is a proposal
that I want to pass by the community at large to ensure that 1) I'm factually correct and 2) that I'm not "fixing" something that doesn't need fixing which will cause massive seizures, general angst, and a downpour of QQ
Based on the Improving Shaiya thread (and a thread specifically on this issue), I'm proposing a bug fix request to the devs (but I haven't yet submitted it). Here is the issue/bug as I understand it, and here would be the requested change.
: Defense reduces physical damage by 1, Absorb reduces any damage by 1, yet Magic Resist reduces magical damage by 2. This seems inconsistent and doesn't serve an obvious game balance or game play concern.
: Magic Resist should reduce magical damage by 1.
If you feel that this shouldn't be fixed, say so clearly and BRIEFLY say why. If you agree that this should be fixed, say so but there's no need to explain why UNLESS your reasons for supporting the change are different than what I've posted in the Issue.
