  • Penitance bonus magical damage

    I noticed Chen actually enables an attacker to deal the bonus damage in a separate instance (which more or less makes sense). What I am unsure of, is the way the second instance is dealt.
    For example: A level 25 Crystal with the default 25% magic resistance receives 75 damage from Vengeful Spirit's Missile.
    After Chen applied his level 1 Penitence (8% bonus damage) on Crystal, Venge dealt 75 plus another instance of 4 damage. But 8% out of 75 damage is 6, not 4. What I mean to ask is, what does the 8% bonus damage apply to ? The ability damage (before MR is calculated) or the 8% bonus to the actual damage (after MR is calculated).
    If the second applies, am I to understand that MR applies TWICE on Penitence ??? I might have miscalculated since it's 3am, but at this precise moment I have no clue where the game got that 4 bonus damage calculated value from...

      nvm... I doublechecked wiki now and saw that it specifies it's Physical. Silly me

      But I still don't understand how that value of 4 was calculated...
