ArPen and threat

How much does ArPen increase threat? Is it worth going over the ArPen cap >85 f or increased threat. I'm curious if it would be worth moving my SH boon from Power to Arp....

    As far as I know, armor pen only increases threat to the extent that it increases damage and more damage means the threat buffs have more to multiply. With insufficient Resistance Ignored, you are doing less damage and therefore generating less threat. Once your RI is enough, adding to it won't matter at all.

    Lacking sufficient Armor Pen costs you threat but overstacking it does nothing.

    Arpen doesn't increase threat. It increases damage, and damage translates into threat.

    Thanks guys. I had just seen a number of people over time suggest there was a reason to stack Arp for threat, I thought there might be something there. I definitely agree it should hit the cap, and that seems to be as far as it goes, then.
