    you keep saying that defense is useless, but only using an excuse with res. look at ALL my posts,, all i said is that res crystal works better on high defense.
    its like saying that Mitsubishi GT-2000 is a slow car because a baby drive it. it works both way, a good car wont do good with a bad driver, and a good driver has it limits with crappy car. same as res and defense.




    speak of the devil itself....
    well, its pretty normal for foolish people to hate people who used his brain.
    You really cant be that stupid. I read every post, you are the one who cant read/comprehend what I wrote apparently. Maybe I need to use a 3rd grade English vernacular

    What I said is what I consider horrid defense (50% of your attack) and very high resist/will, has a greater effect than horrid resist crystals with excellent defense stats(where defenses are close to the same as attack)

    I don't doubt you know what you are talking about, but you don't read /comprehend well. Also, seems like you just like to hear yourself talk and bash others. You gave a dumb example with numbers that are irrelevant. I gave stats of a fight in BG with stats like I suggested. Clearly the HORRID defense 50k pdef/mdef ~100k attack with super high resists(multiple adv/expert dimensions) > much better defenses(75kish) ~100k attack with all basic dimensions

    1. The lower your def, the more effect res will have. Since you're taking more damage based on defensive stats, then more damage will be negated by res.

    2. RES vs. DEF is much the same argument as Goddess Blessing vs. Aegis. RES is a % based reduction, DEF is absolute. The % based will have the bigger effect at bigger numbers. No need to neglect one entirely, but RES is obviously the more important factor of the two.

    Yes^ pretty much spot on

And if so it means that if my light res is 1000 vs his 900 electro res (similar player stats, same class) i should do more damage to him?
    only at human form. like i said earlier, once you transform your attack will be switched to sylph's element.

    it goes like this:
    you (1000 light res, 500 elec res, athena equipped) vs opponent (900 elec res, 800 light res, hercules equipped) -> you deal more damage
    then
    you (1000 light res, 500 elec res, transformed into athena) vs opponent (900 elec res, 800 light res, transformed into hercules) -> he deals more damage
    the res that took effect are bolded.

    your athena is already 83k. -_-;
    it's already better than 80% of the players's best sylphs.

    3. Yet again my hp was higher then his/hers

    Conclusion: All my stats were higher then of the other player including sylph, which means that resistance is the only thing that drags me down.

    So the answer to my question as everyone is saying is that don't really matter anymore how high is my pdef/mdef. Unless i get my resistance up or change my main sylph i'm doomed.
    Except when they use, oh I don't know... a matk sylph, like I said in my post. So unless they used a Pan, Cerberus or Gaia, all 3 which would easily beat you since your res in those elements even lower, MATK does matter.

    *sigh*
    let me repeat this the umpteenth time. your defense is still important, you just need to build your resistance more. res and def are not exclusive to each other. once you have a good res and defense, you would be a feared monster that no one able to scratch.

    or do the other solution that been posted many times, change sylph. the opponent's elec res wont mean anything once you changed into your athena.

    tips: when you are fighting other people, the resistance that was taken into damage calculation is your highest res regardless what sylph you equipped.
    so if the opponent has hercules with 1350 elec res while you have athena with 1200 elec res and both of you have same attackpoint and res reduction, he will still does more damage because he has higher number.
    once you transform into your sylph, then your attack's element becomes what your sylph has. thats why i keep saying you should use your athena because its harder to raise light resistance than elec.

    3 average HP and mdef

    and agreed with Arlad, your electro res is low for someone that wants to be competitive against players that use Herc.

    These are my 2 main sylphs so far:

    [ATTACH=CONFIG]128342[/ATTACH] [ATTACH=CONFIG]128343[/ATTACH]

    And my main problem is that i loose to players with 50 k Br less then me, 20 - 30 k less defense stats, same class sylph (usually lower quality)
    this already been answered in the 2nd post. people are stacking elec resist so you are losing because you used hercules.
    change your main sylph(in your case, your athena seems the best choice) and you will stomp them when you fight them again.
    without their high elec res, they can only rely on their defense when you transformed into your athena.

    edit: i see your elec res stats are pretty low for someone your strenght.
    even without dimension, if you have 5 lvl 7 elec res crystal you should have 650 res when you equip your hercules.

    my advice: give your best res crystal and dimension into your equipped sylph 1st. when you have same res and will reduction with your opponent, its your stat's turn to shine.

    well to answer the question, lets do it like this: for example: Jeff hits Jan with an attack stat of 100k, jan got 90k defense so that makes 10k.
    the defense is something thats absolut, if you ever had statistic in school im sure you know what this means.
    the resistance adds/removes a % of damage u deal/receive.
    for example: Jeff hits Jan with an attack stat of 100k, jan got 90k defense so that makes 10k, but Jan got 100 electro resistance, which is the type where jeff hit jan with. this means that 10% damage will be rededuced since its prety logical 10 resistance = 1% (1% per 1 res is too OP).so this makes 9k hit.
    if you need more explaining just ask me! but keep this in mind: defense works with absolut numbers and resistance with %'s.
    EDIT: with defense in the first line i mean MDEF or PDEF, depending on your opponents class

    if that number were more like 75k def with 100k attack... yes

    When your def is half your attack, you have horrid defense. When you win fights easy, its due to resist and dimensions. PERIOD
