same for bosses, but 70/170


So I will get full values out of my beyond-100 pierce, right? No diminishing return as I go higher?

the more/players you set , the higher chances for the opponents to drop something . it reduces the "no drop" chance .

No diminishing returns, only hard caps as previously mentioned(135 for regular enemies,170 for bosses). Diminishing returns only kicks in when you're trying to break an immunity if the immune monster has over 100 res(that applied in cLoD with stuff like Lower Resist curse and Conviction aura). It's no longer an issue in Median, iirc, as immune monsters have exactly 100 res(except for purify bosses, but you won't be able to break those immunities).

Good afternoon! In stats according to my atack rating I have chance to hit necrobot 60%. But I have Ignore target's defence. Actual my chance to hit necrobot is maximum possible (infinity)? Does it make sence to increase atak rating?

ignore target defense grants you max chance to hit . however , this modiffier does not apply to act bosses / uber bosses / other fat opponents .

Blue is the unofficial color for sarcasm. Or at least it was ever since the old Laz days. So pay no attention to that part.

The sacrificial heart and meditation candle were removed. To make an honorific, cube a magic quality item with the Mark of Infusion that drops from Shenk in act 5.
