Dampen Shock

I'm kinda curious about something that I'm not getting a clear answer from what I can piece together in the wiki. Can a human activate dampen shock in their normal state? That is, without bonuses from divine link, food, transformations, etc? I'm looking at my own character and their base defense and magic defense is stuck at around 140 and 85. The remaining things I see to add to it don't seem to make it all the way.

    Yes you can activate Dampen shock with just armor on. I wear Langu Chaser armor and I achieve the reqs just fine. So you might need some end game armor or some type with Magic Def on it to hit the mark.

    I thought it had to be the base stats in order to trigger Dampen Shock?

    if you boost the primary stats (str, int, will) with those it increases base defense/protection which is what's being checked.

    Yes, humans can have Dampen Shock active, regardless of whether they have any buffs on, or even any equipment. Any given end-game player can do it, if we're considering high stats to be end-game.

    That's odd. I don't see anything I'm missing though. So I don't know what skills I'm lacking that keeps me below the requirements.

    edit: ok, nvm, I am dumb. I both haven't leveled much and forgot that Shine of Eweca was a thing. Well, more like I checked the chart for under 1k ttl and forgot that the stat increase rises with ttl.

    madness

    Unless you have a good total level for the shine of eweca giving ya the Str to get base 150 def naked as an elf.

    Its hard to believe for an elf with no good total level to achieve 150+ Base without at least 1,480+ Str naked

    although you said "Almost" naked so i assume you at least have the body armor on.

    Naked + divine link does it. Or fully clothed.

    yeah I'm just shy of 25k total

    Humans can activate dampen naked. Don't forget the perm bonuses from inactive GM's.

    Bolded the proper thing for ya. The original post was asking if it's possible to do it without buffs IE:Divine link.

    On topic:Yes a human is able to do it without buffs with proper stats which shouldn't be to hard though you might need a mdef armor early on. Giants have an easier time and elves have the hardest time to the point I don't think it's possible without buffs.

    Elves can with echoes, I know. Otherwise I'm not 100% on that.
