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

The formula is as follows:

$ {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. Physical armor will NOT, however, reduce damage from energy attacks, nor will energy armor mitigate damage from physical attacks.
