Do the trait's effects only apply to both while you are under 25% health? Or each for its own, like the pet getting 30% less damage while IT is under 25% health? Gnarf 10:00, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

With Protection[edit]

If under 25% health with protection and bark skin active, damage taken is 46.2% of what you would normally take rather than 36.6%. This is because each damage mitigation effects expected damage D in such a way that

Actual = (1-0.33)*(1-0.7)*D

instead of

Actual = (1-(0.33+0.3))*D The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs).
Damage calculations in Guild Wars/Guild Wars 2 have always been multiplicative, but it probably warrants a note regardless. Since this is not the only trait to directly reduce damage it should be noted elsewhere. Felix Omni Signature.png 23:35, 29 October 2013 (UTC)

Condition Damage[edit]

Does bark skin reduce condition damage as well? The preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 02:00, 3 November 2013 (UTC).
