Yeah, that pretty much sums it up.

Hypothetically Speaking :Lets says target hero has 0 armor and you use a spell to reduce their armor to -11 which is like -39% damage reduction. Would that mean your physical attacks do 39% more damage?

6.73 change:

he already stated sf.....

and id rather swap gondar and alchemist with venge and dazzle.
it makes a better line up with dazzle and slardar on the easy lane, sf mid, weaver solo hard lane, and venge roamer or trilane with dazzle and slardar.

its an old strat. its nothing new tbh.

and btw, negative armor caps at -20.

check this guide for more info
skip to the conclusion. its all there

and wht abt sf

307 By Nefera 2011-12-20

yes i forgot about him..maybe we should get rid of alchemist from the team..

306 By The Ronin 2011-12-19

You forgot dazzle, which is the best armor reductionalist.

305 By Nefera 2011-12-19

@299,let the team be sf,slardar,gondar,weaver,alchemist

sf - reduce 5 armor
slardar ulti - reduce 16 armor
gondar ulti - reduce 5 armor
weaver swarm - reduce up to 12 armor if the swarm not die
alchemist acid - reduce 6 armor

deso - reduce 6 armor
assault - reduce 5 armor
MoC - reduce 6 armor

wow,5+16+5+12+6+6+5+6= reduce 61 armor

if armor like this, even creep can kill the hero..haha..epic armor reduce.

304 By EIOX 2011-11-25

@299 lol dont know abut slardar......

303 By rondoom 2011-05-04

302 By DTermination 2011-03-10

Hammer+Hammer= Bloody Sword

I lol at DotA

well, your ulti is a pin in the axe, even for axe, provided you 2 arent that into late game yet. just make sure you have enough hp before trying to take on axe . i'd still prefer other items though, like orchid, because you don't have an awesome attack speed to start with

300 By crixcrix14 2010-09-26

hm. do all of you think that if ur using krob versus axe? this item is good or not?

299 By tidalchaos14 2010-07-21

try this with sf buy a desolator and assault cuirass it stack with sf's presence of the darklord so. . .

desolator - reduces 6 armor
assault - reduces 5 armor
sf's 3rd skill - reduces 5 armor

total of 16 armor reduction to enemies haha = GG

298 By tasik 2010-07-13

afaik the armor debuff is applied before ur first attack.

297 By Ne0aly 2010-06-13

corruption triggers at your first attack. so is your first attack amplified by the negative armor or does it need to be at the second attack where the armor is definitely reduced?

296 By MessUpClarity 2010-05-24

Formula for damage reduction is 0.06A/(1 + 0.06A) where A is the hero's armour.

In the case of armour = 1, the total damage reduction is:
(0.06 x 1) / ((0.06 x 1) + 1)
=5.7% damage reduction

Negative armour can be calculated through this formula, but this is simpler:

Damage Increase = 2 - 0.94 x A where A is the negative armour. Btw damage increase is capped at around 71% extra damage.

Ow. Mathcraft hurts
