The target has 10 stacks of the adapt property, at 2% per stack.


Then, the difference between MACO and a Resilient Res A shield at that point should be about 8 or 9% resistance (with Res A sitting around 69 to 70% SDR).


The value of Res A / B vs. MACO actually becomes larger if the target has lower power and lower EPTS.

For example, EPTS 1, 75 power would see the above example change from 8 or 9% to a difference of about 13% between MACO and Res A / B.
yup, this is the nice effect of diminishing returns ^^
