People thought that was the case, but with the removal of the -armour skills in, it became apparent that armour reduction was actually significant. It turns out that armour is applied separately to every single source of physical damage, not to the total physical damage of an attack. That's the case for all resistances too, but doesn't matter for them since they're just a percentage reduction.

Physical builds tend to get little bits and pieces of physical damage from various sources, and getting all of those reduced by 70% against high armour enemies was very significant. See grimdawn.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54517 for all the details.

Changing armour to apply to total physical damage would've required some significant changes to some very old code, which would've been more trouble than it was worth. Hence the changes to armour in

I have indeed seen that, but the amounts they removed were puny. 14 armor? That's all? In some cases, usually dual or shield abilities, a few of those price together made a difference to the physical component of the DPS, but that's hardly worth keeping the stat in existence.

I think it means that enemies get less % armor protection bonus on Elite and Ultimate.
List of my characters is too large to fit in this box.

I have an empty spot in my potions bag that I don't remember being there. Were any potions removed recently?
