First let me ask because I don't know how it would stack. If I had about 50 hard defense, used the SN shield that reduces damage from all elements except neutral by 20%, with thara frog on it, and used the platinum skill energy coat, how much would it reduce damage?
When I tries to do it I did it like this...
1000 damage
Reduced by hard defense (50%)
500 damage
Reduced by element (20%)
400 damage
Reduced by thara frog (30%)
280 damage
Reduced by energy coat (30%)
196 damage

Is my math correct? That would make about a reduction of physical damage of 80.4%

Next I was wondering if a melee/magic build would be a bad idea instead of a bow build that everyone is using.

I am horrible with math, so I can't realy help there...
but I am a Melee/magic Hybrid build, and I am maining this class since 3 years~

Overall, Melee is harder to play to my experience and it is more expensive to get a good set of gears for. In general I think they are more fun to play though, and tend to be a lot more confusing for opponents, since pneuma just fails ;3

That's because pne owns! Especially because I use a pattern of five
X------X
----X----
X------X

Enough so they are as close as possible, that way you can move and be in pne clouds the whole time!

yea, I still wonder what's up with the platinum skills... it's a little redundant that they didn't fix it till now IMO. :wacko:

It's probably one of those instances where procrastination kicks in, they say "it's easy we'll just do it later" and they forget or something else takes precedent
