Do you have a source for this? I haven't seen this claim before.

with the armor debuff he would have 6400 = 37% dr

20% armor penetration would ignore 0.2x43% = 8.6%
while armor debuf would only ingore 6 %

it is because armorrating is a deminishing return curve
Pretty sure you're wrong there.

On my Rage Marauder, I have a passive 30% armor penetration.

Using the 288 damage relic, I will hit the dummy for 209 damage. If Armor penetration works as you claim, I should be getting 217 damage (since dummy has 35% armor).

remember that in your tool tip, the damage increase of shii-cho form is much higher then than 3% due to a bug. while the actual damage dealt is correctly increased by only 3 %.

to test it you can deactivate your shii-cho form and check the tooltip of your relic
(you have to reequip the relic to refresh the tooltip)
that explains why it appears to deal less damage then it should with the 30% ap.

for the armor rating you can check this site http://www.jedilace.com/2012/02/09/d...on-from-armor/
that armor debuffs affect armor rating, can also be seen in your character screen when you have the debuff on yourself.
