Different damage types are mitigated by the defensive stats (resistances) on different types of armor.[1]

  • There is also non-mitigated damage.[1]

There won't be any damage dampening due to differences in levels in either PvP or PvE.[6]

Damage numbers will not be so large as to be meaningless.[7]

We don't see the need to have these enormous numbers that are really start to lose meaning. That seems to be an innate design issue with other games as they try to balance the damage output in PvP and in PvE; but our design system allows for a more manageable damage protocol for PvE and PvP to be shared; and those damage protocols relate more to lower numbers.[7]Steven Sharif
