I'm still in the process of levelling my DNC to 75 and prepping it for merits. The question I had is in regard to Fan Dance and if it has the ability to stack its Physical DMG reduction with equipment. Does the equipment stack with Fan Dance while at it's low point of 20% DMG reduction?
If I were to make, for instance, two of the -Physcial DMG daggers (-10%) and use a Patronus Ring in Campaign (-10%), Jelly Ring (-5%), and Denali Hands (-2%) could I have a stacked physical damage reduction of 47% at the Fan Dance low point?
Does equipment get counted after the Fan Dance check? Has anyone done a test with 1000 Needles that would suggest that this stacks (at least to the 50% point)?
I have a feeling that it may stack, but follows the same DMG reduction cap of 50% unless you've exceeded it with Fan Dance.
So my question is, can I get my damage reduction to work like this if I use equipment and the ability for the five minnutes it's up or is it done as a separate check?
Fan Dance starting at 90, would the DMG reduction effectiveness in Campaign reduce in this fashion?
-90%, -80%, -70%, -60%, -50%, -47%, -47%, -47%, -47%, -47%, etc.
Can someone correct me if my understanding is incorrect?
