Hola everyone, I'm on PS4 but have a question around the Legendary trex combat power. We all should remember how useful it was in mod 14 and 15. But now in mod 16 and 17, For Level 80 content, is the Trex combat power completely useless? It debuffs the target to lower defenses by 10%. Now that said everyone entering LoMM should already have 68k or higher armpen. So, with that in mind, is the trex combat power useless? Thank you for the time and inputs!

    can tell you from the crash test dummies in Protectors the trex made almost zero difference in my numbers over a 10 seonds rotation. Granted im on PS4 so i only have the log tab to look at and track via writing down

    It says defense but it lowers damage resistance, meaning you get that boost even if you are capped

    I have it as well, and it does almost(if not) completely nothing.
    Basically useless, might help out with damage by a smaaaallll insignificant amount

    It says defense but it lowers damage resistance, meaning you get that boost even if you are capped

    When the player max its ArmPen, it means the enemy has its lowest possible damage resistance (if it is not 0) against this player.
    Hence, this debuff will do nothing to this player but it can help other players who have not max'ed the ArmPen.

    It's a debuff, the same as it was before, increases the damage that the target takes regardless of how much Armor Pen. This is why the devs recently made it not stack, as it as just too good in Tower of the Mad Mage on preview, where I am 100% everyone had enough armor pen to negate Halaster's defense rating.
