Last month, I linked to one of the more attractive-looking stat-wise craftable mail items that will appear in the game with the release of Patch 3. The post was under the headline:. This will be the third tier of raiding gear in which mail gear is primarily itemized with Hunters in mind. Not only do almost all the raid drops — whether normal or heroic — feature Armor Penetration, but in this patch, every physical DPS mail item available from badges, and one out of two craftable physical DPS mail items, has Armor Penetration on it. We know Enhancement Shamans have been raising this issue for a while. Have those complaints gone unheard by the development team?

As of Patch 4. Armor penetration sometimes abbreviated ArP or called armor pen is a value appearing on many talents and abilities that indicates the percentage of armor that will be ignored by an attack. ArP is unique in that the more ArP you have, the greater the increase in damage becomes.
Spell penetration reduces the target's resistance to your spells; it is a different mechanic from spell hit rating. Spell penetration only works against targets with resistances , and will not reduce resistances below zero. Spell penetration typically is a PvP stat, intended to help casters against players who wear resistance gear or are buffed with extra resistance, such as [ Mark of the Wild ]. Otherwise, very few mobs and raid-level bosses have a substantial amount of resistance to overcome. The formula for spell penetration is quite simple.
