penetration

so if a gem adds 4% basic atk penetration, does that just mean it negates some of the resistance of whoever you're attacking, or does it let you do more dmg to subsequent enemies in a line when attacking? or both?

Goes around resistance... In LOL, it meant ignoring your enemy's armor

The devs answered this in a stream yesterday. Heres the example they gave say the enemy has 50% resistance and you have 50% pen it means you remove 50% of there 50% so theyed have 25% resistance left.

Which from a balance point makes resistance far more valuable.

^ Also why game is balanced because some of the tankier and powerful guardians don't always have the best resistance, which means it evens things out as they are weaker to abilities.
