Damage Absorption

[ Return to Game Mechanics ]

Damage Absorption reduces the amount of damage taken in combat and seems to work by adding to your defensive equipment's power. Since the power of your equipped hat, pants, and shirt (if you're aware of your torso) count as Damage Absorption, be sure to see Hats, Pants, and Shirts. To see various maximum levels of absorption, see Maximizing Your Damage Absorption. Those interested in reducing damage may also be interested in Damage Reduction, Elemental Resistance, Moxie Modifiers, and reducing Monster Level.

Damage absorption % works out to:

% of damage absorbed = √(DA × 10) − 10

This is capped at 90%, so extra DA beyond 1000 has no effect.

Damage Absorption 0 to 10 40 90 160 250 360 490 640 810 1000 or more
Percent Absorbed 0% 10% 20% 30% 40% 50% 60% 70% 80% 90%

Note that Damage Absorption is not tiered, and that the above table only serves to provide DA totals for specific reduction percentages.

Here's a comprehensive list of everything in the game that provides bonus Damage Absorption.
