T3M4 zeta logic

T3M4 2nd zeta says “droid allies gain 100% of T3M4 defense penetration”.
But when i look at T3M4 stats he has 0% defense penetration

100% x 0% = 0%

So this zeta is completely useless or am i missing something ?

    Defense penetration says 0% for all characters.

    They gain boosts to equal to T3's armour penetration (for physical attacks) and resistance penetration (for special attacks).

    Defense penetration is an umbrella term for armour and resistance penetration.

    And I'll expand, that bit increases T3's armour and resistance penetration before they are shared with his allies as above:

    No it does not. The "+" in the left hand column means the stat change is added to what the ability does, not a flat addition to stats. In the main description it just means an additional 100% on top of the stats he has. A

    In summary, at the zeta level T3's Master Gearhead:
    1) Doubles his armour and resistance penetration stats (together known as defense penetration, which isn't explained in game and really needs to be)
    2) These stats are then shared with Droid allies.

    You need G12+ pieces for that zeta to work properly.

    ^ this too. He doesn't have much armour and resistance penetration until you start adding those pieces.
  • Defense is a catchall term that applies to both armor (physical damage defense) and resistance (special damage defense) just like offense is a catchall term for both physical and special damage.

    And, as stated above, T3 doubles his own armor and resistance penetration before handing that number out to all droids (including himself) so after all is said and done, he will end up with a total 4 times the number you see in panel for Armor and resistance penetration while all other droids will receive double his in panel numbers.

    This debate crops up once a month or so and the best conclusion I've been able to draw is "nobody knows, but it's probably better than not having it."
