Started thinking about this due to the Stoneskin totem.

"reduces melee damage taken by ..."

Seems like the equivalent of Dampen Magic "reduces magic damage taken by ..."

How should these quofficients be interpreted in terms of actual reduction per hit (% wise maybe or absolute number reduction) ? Possible to calculate a DPS reduction on a mob maybe?

Trying to get a better grasp on the practicality of the numbers.

Thanks in advance.
