Why does a full AP monkey take 0 damage while in grab to 2 characters?

    Because the game likes to desync like hell. If the opponent desyncs during/after a successful grab, you are not able to damage the player for a split second. This shyt always confuses the hell out of me, whether if it's a V escape or desync, because both looks exactly the same. AF.

    Desync or Renown. Having high renown score itself gives a lot of defense. For example, having 2 characters at 210 AP and around 507 Renown VS someone with 260 AP monkey with 557 Renown, you're running 210 AP against someone with 297 DP + 62 DR.To put that into perspective, besides DP, a TET Dim Tree only has +46 DR.

    Assuming you don't actually mean 0 damage, but rather, very insignificant damage, it's probably a combination of Desync and Renown.

    There used to be times when you were punished for being a full AP monkey ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    BDO has become a mobile game though, takes away all this annoying build diversity and necessary thought process behind gearing.

    Seems we have a little Black Kettle here since you took the time to post on a forum that other people are wasting their time posting on forums.

    Uhm because since when did full AP monkey ever mean you have ZERO defense? Good chance the player is a full DP monkey as well since most every gear slot is either AP OR DP exclusively besides jewelry. Man you people are truly inept at life, because before the change "full ACCURACY" MONKEY was any better? I mean you play this game right? AP comes from weapons and accessories, DP comes from armor (can get from accessories but noone ever used them for DP because DP scales poorly EVEN BEFORE the change to make AP better than accuracy noone built DP accessories).

    So being an AP monkey changes nothing regarding DP than people who used to stack accuracy. Your post is stupid poorly thought out and just another QQ. Sorry man your old cheap ass soft cap gear doesnt cut it anymore the game has progressed in the last 9 months and people have improved their GS that much more.

    BTW there are some real reasons why as well. There are a few abilities in the game that literally make a persons DP 999 so they dont no dmg for a brief period, there is also this very rare black spirit stone that also gives you 999dp for something like an hour, and there are a number of foods potions that can dramatically increase dmg reduction values for a bit. So this really could have nothing to do with gear score, but when you type herp derp QQ you cant actually get an answer to help you.

    Cause even if someone is full ap, they still have their armor on and if they outgear you, you won't do any dmg to them.

    Read the last line you quoted, and barely scratch is more than 0 damage from ONE player.

    Look at the DR stats on accessory, PEN earring/ring/necklace/belt/offhand is about 120DR.
    The so called softcap gear is 166 DR and 572 renown is another 100 DR (almost as much as 6x PEN accessories+PEN DR offhand combined)

    The big problem here is that AP builds give up exactly NOTHING to be tanky, while anyone trying to get to the same level with DP gear will be unable to kill "softcap" players that are not afk

    It's still the best mmo there is currently. But in itself, its almost at its worst as it can possibly be.

    But that says a lot more about the dead mmo genre in general and the desperate need for new titles with some healthy competition instead of cashgrabs.


    Also, a person might be complaining on a forum about 20-30 different things repeatedly, but you might not hear the other 200-300 things he likes or praises, because the forum is not the place for that.

    don't you think that's a contradiction in itself? "the best, but the worst" wut?

    and did you also encounter those dudes who get absolutely zero damage while in grab, from 2 guys? it's totally exaggerated, I call it simply a lie, out of frustration. as I said already, the OP claimed not too long ago that he deleted all his gear and quit. not really trustworthy when couple of weeks later he complains again.

    attackers had probs ultra shitty gear, and defender pretty good stuff, maybe popped a whale elixir and just healed up the poop damage with pots right to full hp again.

    People who still play BDO considers BDO to be the best MMORPG there is out there, especially if you're looking for a game to "main," seeing how much time you have to devote to the game. However, that doesn't necessarily mean the game's good. It's just the best out of the bad ones... as in, there isn't any really good MMOs out there.

    He didn't say the game's simultaneously the best and the worst. It's best compared to the others, but it's the worst compared to itself. BDO has a lot of potential to be the absolute best game known to human kind, but the developers just keep making the game worst and worst with every other patch. Of course it's almost at the worst it can be, it's been going downhill for 2 years. There were good patches here and there but they made way too many mistakes without even acknowledging, let alone retracting them.
