won't wearing armor like robes vs melee actually incur more damage than it actually soaks because of the lower defence stats on the armor?

That soak on obby shields is really awesome, compared to other equipement:

 

guthans platebody (3% melee, 10% ranged, 0%),

verac skirt (3% , 7% , 0%)

slayer helmet (0% , 0% , 0%)

all boots, gloves & capes 0%


First they came to fishing

and I didn't speak out because I wasn't fishing

 

Then they came to the yews

and I didn't speak out because I didn't cut yews

 

Then they came for the ores

and I didn't speak out because I didn't collect ores

 

Then they came for me

and there was no one left to speak out for me.

Seems VERY strange that spirit shields and dragonfire shield are given no soak at all, or perhaps jagex is compensating for the fact that the chaotic shields suck...

hmm they follow the 1:2 pattern so if there's 3% x and 7% y the 3% is actually 3.5 ?

These new armours could make Jad a bit easier.

 

No more 1 hit if you miss a prayer switch?

I honestly cant believe it took Jagex THIS long to allow Duke Horacio to outright give out more anti-dragon shields. Although youve been able to drop get one and pick up for ever anyway. : ) just a thought

And Nomad as well ... The near 1 hit kill .. and 20% soaking .. that's ~-150 dmg.

I'm pretty interested to see how this update is going to affect the price of dclaws. Won't be surprised if they rise past the 33m mark they were settled on before they crashed.

 

This makes chaotic kite an even better substitute for DFS, (albeit without the str bonus) shame that a 200k obby shield has almost the same soaking stats as the chaotic shields though.

I dont think the soaking will work on Nomad. He has special attackes that hit you for set amounts and for LP-1 etc. Might be better for his other, regular, attacks though.

But nomads attacks can't be blocked by prayers, so one would assume perhaps damage soaking doesnt touch em either.

 

As its a mage attack, but some sort of special mage attack that ignores prayer and all mage defence, so why shuld soaking be any diff?

Dunno if it's been mentioned yet, but Mod Easty posted this earlier

 

This was actually updated, just missed off of the news post. I'll have a word with our editors to get that added.

 

You are now able to left click on the "collapsed" menu to perform the default action, such as "Take" on objects.

His ultimate attack is probably of an 'uncategorized' (meaning not melee, range nor magic) damage type, so soaking won't affect it.
