    Title: Break Armor with spec doesn't increase much with a 6 stack enough
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Details: With the Break Armor skill at 120 and the Bludgeon Spec skill at 120, the difference between a 1 and six stack Break Armor skill is approximately 8.5 points.
    1 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=34 Damage Resistance
    2 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=35.7 Damage Resistance
    3 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=37.4 Damage Resistance
    4 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=39.1 Damage Resistance
    5 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=40.8 Damage Resistance
    6 Stack Break armor skill at 120 and 120 Bludgeon Spec=42.5 Damage Resistance

    A difference of 8.5. That seems very low from a 1 stack to 6 stack.

    You can then apply a second debuff of break armor as well (this skill allows 2 debuffs at a time).
    A 6 stack of Break Armor and then a 1 stack of break armor is then 42.5 + 34 == 76.5
    A 1 stack of break armor and another 1 stack of break armor is then 34 +34 == 68
    Applying a second 6 stack would however take considerable amount of time.

    There just isn't an amount from the 6 stack to justify using a 6 stack at all, when just doing a 2 1 stacks is only a 8.5 difference. And with 120 Bludgeon Spec. This just seems a bit off.

    This many or may not be a bug, but just seems a bit off. Is this is not a bug, please feel free to move this to the appropriate forum. Thank you.

    The following test was with a naked Avatar, equipped only with a NPC purchased Chainmail Chest Armor and a War Hammer on a Practice Dummy.
