Category Player Stats

SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense is one of the core player Stats. It indicates how much damage reduction a player or enemy has when taking SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage.

Effective Health

Effective Health, or EHP, is the exact amount of SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage a player can take before dying when taking SkyBlock icons health.pngHealth and SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense into consideration. It is a useful number to check for when comparing armor sets and figuring out which one is better than the other.

Effective Health can be calculated with this formula:
SkyBlock icons health.pngHealth

Using this formula, we can figure out how much EHP one would have if they had 1,500 SkyBlock icons health.pngHealth and 750 SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense:

This formula can also be used to calculate the exact amount of SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage you would take from True Damage by replacing SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense with SkyBlock icons true defense.pngTrue Defense.

Damage Reduction

Damage Reduction is a percent value which represents how much SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage a player or enemy will not take when taking SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage.

The formula for Damage reduction can be seen as follows:

  • SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense / ( SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense + 100)

For example, if a player has 500 SkyBlock icons defense.pngDefense, the formula will be 500 / 600, resulting in a 83.3% SkyBlock icons strength.pngDamage reduction.
