# Defense Chart

Defense is: Straight 1 point per 1 damage reduction, but caps at 90% of total damage.
Because of this, every damage number in the game has a minimum amount of damage it will hurt a player for.

In other words: If a projectile hits you for 55 damage, and you have 55 defense, you will take 5 damage from that projectile because of the 90% reduction cap; 55 - 49.5 (90% of 55) = 5.5, which rounds down to 5 in realm.

Therefore the minimum damage of 55 is 5.

Because of the cap, you only need a defense stat of 50 to defend against a projectile that does 55 damage. any additional defense won’t matter.

The table list a projectile’s damage, the minimum damage that projectile can do, and the minimum defense a player needs to take the minimum damage from that projectile.
