Defensive Stance Skill Questions

Hi all,

Can defensive stance be considered as the reduced damage skill when using overwatch?

If the answer is yes, I understand that it is not used in the strategy because little damage when use overwatch? is what I say correct?

If the answer is no, how does it work exactly?

The last of the questions, adds defensive stance with reduced damage? I mean if I have both skills at level 5,

Defensive stance 45
DR: 15

I have 60 DR when using owerwatch? if not, How do they work?

Thanks all in advance!

    I posted the same question a few weeks ago in the forum.
    -DS adds directly to DR (when overwatching).
    -It defined as X% more damage resistance when overwatching.
    -Damage resistance is actually DR traits (badges).

    EDIT:
    -Don't forget, total DR cannot exceed 80%, while overwatching or not overwatching.

    You need like 65% damage reduction to get full 80% dr on defensive stance overwatch

    Just see it as 2 times a reduction.

    Let's say the attacker does 100% damage.

    100% - (Iron skin) 20% - (damage reduction badges) 30% - (tactical trait) 10%
    Then there is 40% left.

    Then comes defensive stance.
    Let's Say it is 50%.
    50% of 40% is 20%.
    So 40% - 20% is 20%.
    20% damage left = 80% damage reduction.

    This reads as: iron skin + defensive stance. Just be sure that that is not how it works!

    Yeah, although it reads like it should add, it really doesn’t. It only reduces the damage received after your IS and DR badges have reduced it already. Was a great trait before badges.

    Oops... I got it very wrong. Thanks to this thread @Mojaku, and @jimmorrison369, @Firekid for the detail explaination. I still collecting reroll tokens. And this thread really comes in the right time before I reroll any traits.

    Hi, @Firekid , Please can you detail me whats is IS?

    I give you my example:

    Bruiser with 80 DR, Armor (10 iron skin), Trait (15), Weapon (tactical 15) and Badges (40)

    And Defensive Stance Lvl 5.

    What could I do? I eliminate badges? reroll skill defensive stance? what new skill?

    Attached screenshots, recommendations?
