F expertise.
this is actually a myth that I personaly disproved just before 5.10

me and szopen (? I think was his name) grabbed our sins and put this myth to rest.

so basically szopen was in a full min maxed assassin gear set. I had 2 sets, a full min maxed 248 with 240 augs and I had a 230 un auged set.

szopen used discharge on me 2 times in both sets .he did approxmiately 18k dmg all 4 discharges.

in summary: armor rating does not increase your damage reduction, it is only there so you as a player can identify its value. the only thing that changes with armor rating is generaly the higher it is the more stats it has, therefore more damage.
