Since not much has changed since 4.0, I’ve based this guide on the 4.0 guide written by Aelanis, as nearly everything he says there still applies (there are a few changes, and many new things, which I’ll be adding in this guide).In this guide I’ll do my best to be helpful to new and experienced players alike.Damage Reduction (comes from Armor Rating, which depends on your Armorings and gear type, e.g.light armor for Shadows) gives you a passive damage reduction for each damage type: Energy/Kinetic damage (most non-periodic damage is energy/kinetic) and Internal/Elemental damage (generally speaking, Do T damage is internal/elemental; melee/ranged attacks are never internal/elemental) Damage Reduction granted by Armor Rating only reduces the damage you take from Energy/Kinetic damage.

Note, while you’re stunned or knocked down, your Defense Chance is 0%.

This means your shield is useless against ‘auto-crits’.

Crit VS shield is only a consideration in Pv P however.

After all that, your Damage Reduction is applied, and the resulting damage amount is removed from your health.

If you get below 0 health, you die (fun fact, at 0 health you will still live).
