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.
I wanted to come back to this, as there is a chance that (new info, for me anyway):
> MACO 10% vs. all is not multiplicative
> Brings into question the possibility that Resilient Absorb 5% is also not multiplicative
> Also brings into question the same regarding 15% from Res A or Res B.
