As I understand it, shield resistances are multiplicative.

So my question is the following (assuming 0 shields power, and no EPTS 1):

With a Res A / B Resilient shield we have:

> 15% to 3 energy types
> 5% absorb (which as I understand it functions as resistance)
> 2% x 10 stacks of the ADAPT property

Players typically look at that and think "40% resistance" - which is not the case.

However (Edited to include stirling191's and frtoaster's fixes, thanks!):


1-(((1-0.15)*(1-0.05))*((1-0.02)^10)))

= 34% resistance

Did I even do this correctly?

Feel free to let me know how wrong I am if I did!!


My main question is with regards to the ADAPT property and if it does add 10 individually handled, multiplicative 2% resistance bonuses.
