Physical Armor30px and Energy Armor 30px are two defensive stats in Paragon. These stats mitigate the amount of damage dealt to a hero. 

The formula is as follows:

$ \color{Gray}{DR = A / (100 + A + 10\times(HL - 1))} $ 


  • DR is damage reduction
  • A is armor
  • HL is Hero Level

For example, If at level 15, your hero has 100 armor, you will receive about 30% less damage from a physical attack, meaning an attack that would normally deal 100 damage would instead deal 70 to you. Physical armor will NOT, however, reduce damage from energy attacks, nor will energy armor mitigate damage from physical attacks.
