I was playing around on my friends Witchdoctor when I realized that not only does the character have resistance and armor, but so does the enemy. With this realization, I went to the Pirate101 Wiki to look at this. I then found that the Wiki has yet to track these two statistics. To attempt to change this, I have devised a simple equation for resistance. (A-B)+(B-C)=X

A=Damage done to box,crate,or rock.

B=Damage done to enemy. (Preferably Buccaneer, but can be any class.)

C=Damage done to 2nd enemy. (The one you need information on)

N=Damage difference between two creatures. Now symbolized as B-C

X=Resistance

Lets try this equation out on an easy enemy. Today we will use Ensign Emmet and his companions. I tested this 30 times to be sure that it is correct. I chose the sloth because he was next to Ensign every time. The numbers I use are ones that I chose from my last attempt.

A=713I later tested this many times, and found that Ensign Emmet has a range of 3-5 resistance.

B=713

C=709

(A-B)+(B-C)=X

(713-713)+(713-709)=X

0+4=X

4=X

Ensign Emmet has 4 Resistance

Now lets say I used Ensign Emmet as the the B variable.

A=713

B=709

C=713

(A-B)+(B-C)=X

(713-709)+(709-713)=X

4+(-4)=X

0=X

Barnubus Sloth has 0 Resistance

This provides an excellent way to check your equation.

Lets make up an equation now... This will show how the equation can come in handy. I am actually struggling with correctly forming this due to the fact that life isn't rainbows and butterflies, and that enemies have a range of data. I think I understand the equation though, but this might be only circumstantial. This may allow you to find the resistance of an enemy with not extra items such as rocks and crates in the area.

(B-C)=N ---> (A-B)+N=X

A=458

B=412-429

C=366

X=75

You fight John (C) and his minion Dave (B) There are no rocks.

(B-C)≈N

412-366≈N

46≈N

46 Damage Difference

Later you fight a group of Dave with rocks, but get different damage on Dave this time.

(A-B)+N=X

(458-429)+46=X

29+46=X

75=X

John would have blocked about 75 Damage

You now know that John has a least (or at most) 75 Resistance due to rocks having zero. This is a flawed system, but it would work out well enough. You could find the differences in damage done to Dave and John, and make an estimation on John's Resistance due the resistance that Dave has compared to the resistance (or should I say lack there of) of the rocks.

Lets check if this equation works with our old weasel friend Emmet.

A=758

B=758

C=755

(B-C)=N

(758-755)=N

3=N

(A-B)+N=X

(758-758)+3=X

0+3=X

3=X

3 Resistance

This is a simple test, but I believe that these two equations can be further improved to allow the resistance to be a known statistic around the spiral.
