      Absolutely amazing tear. Remember that this is doubly beneficial against enemies and players that deal more than two types of damage and especially split damage attacks since it will be 10% physical and 10% other affinity. Treat this as the boiled crab dose for your physick which means more defense is always helpful for every situation at little cost.

        The closest anyone can get to wearing a fifth piece of armor. Definitely one of the better tears. Epitome of " Just become unstoppable, forehead ".

          has anybody actually tested if they fixed the phys dmg thing or are all of you just parroting the patch notes

            For pvp, speckled hard tear is better generally. If you’re running heavy armor that 10% abs buff is actually about 6-7%. The health boost tear would actually give you a true 10% health buff. Then regen might give you even more if a duel drags out. This tear has great applications for pve however.

              Cited from the 1.06 patch notes: "Fixed a bug which caused the “Opaline Hardtear” to not boost physical damage negation"
              So now it finally should do what the item description says...

                By the way, it should add physical damage reduction now. Test to confirm and fix WIKI please :D. As someone who enjoys playing as an absorption tank, this is a highly welcome change. 80% absorb here we go!

                  patch notes 1.06 seems to have fixed the physical damage negation issue, though i have no idea by how much (i assume the same as the elemental damage negation)

                  • Anonymous

                    They FINALLY made this actually work as intended. It now increases physical damage negation as of the new patch.

                      this has been patched to also increase physical damage. i have not tested it yet but assume its the same increase of +15% and +10% in pvp.

                            Just noticed in the patch notes for 1.06: apparently this was always supposed to increase physical damage negation too. Haven't tested to see the precise numbers yet but if this thing adds a 10% physical damage negation on top of the others, it becomes a lot more attractive for PvP.

                                Patch 1.06 confirmed that the Opaline Hardtear not boosting physical damage negation to be a bug; it now boosts physical damage negation by about 10% I believe

                                  Apparently it was a bug that this didn't boost physical negation, and it was fixed in patch 1.06

                                  I'm guessing that it now provides a 10% physical negation buff in PvP? Seems pretty decent if that is the case.

                                    As of patch 1.06 - "Fixed a bug which caused the “Opaline Hardtear” to not boost physical damage negation"
                                    It should be updated

                                      Fixed in 1.06 - it now boosts physical as well by 15%. With Golden Vow + Black Flame protection + Dragoncrest shield talisman, you can now easily get 65+ physical resist on medium armour which makes many enemies mostly trivial.

                                        So...does this stack with other resistance buffs and talismans? I'm not really feeling the difference in battle (using resist talisman and incantation in parallel)

                                          They need to update the description of this item in game. Unless it was a translation error which is also likely cuz this does NOT boost ALL damage negation. It only boosts magic and all the elemental dmg negation. Only worth it if facing magical enemies. For the rest of the game this is pretty much a worthless tear.

                                            Wait, what?! I've been using this tear for like 80 hours and it doesn't boost physical damage?! It says boosts ALL damage negation. Everytime I used it, I was always kind of disappointed because it never seemed to help very much, but I just kept using it because of the description. I figured it had to be helping even if I didn't notice. Now I know why. That should be be clarified in the next patch.

                                              Mine says, significantly reduces damage.
                                              It reduces damage by 95, allowing you to tank one hit.
                                              I use it with my rock blaster.
                                              This thing is amazing.
                                              Thank you professor Farnsworth.

                                                Guys this thing isn't useless, chill, it stacks with Black Flame Protection, and all other damage negation Incantations, dunno if stacks with Prawn but I'm not sure, missed them on my playthrough, this plus BFP = megatank, try it out. I tested on Faith/Arcane/Dex with Communion Seal

                                                  This is just a mistranslation. In Japanese physical defense is referred to as 防御力 (defensive strength) in the Status screen while Elemental defense is called カット率 (cut percentage).
                                                  The description says it ups all cut percentage which I guess the translator never looked at the status screen and assume it referred to all defenses.

                                                    thanks, frognation, for yet another spectacular mistranslation. as if butchering ranni's dialog wasn't bad enough.

                                                      Wow, cant believe I have been using this for 120 hours and its basically useless. Trolled by item descriptions once again. Wonder if its another case of the 'wonderful' English translation.

                                                        gosh, even the item descriptions are trying to troll you. i've been equipping this in my flask for physical battles and turns out it was doing absolutely nothing. does their incompetence know no bounds? the 20th thing i've had to look up that doesn't work like it's supposed to. this stacks, that doesn't, we cheat here, you get nerfed for pvp there. utter crap.

                                                          I'm pretty sure this stacks with Golden Vow even though it replaces the symbol for the busf because both effects remain onyour character still. Can anyone confirm this fully?

                                                          • For anyone that wants to argue less % increase = diminishing returns, learn what effective health is. 90 Damage Reduction is a 10x increase of your HP. If you have 1,000HP you do 1,000/(1-.9) which is 10,000. Another instance of 90% Damage Reduction assuming multiplicative would be 99% Damage Reduction which is another 10x increase of your HP. 1,000/(1-.99) which is 100,000. If there was diminishing returns you wouldn't see another 10x increase of your hp from the same damage reduction...

                                                                This thing actually lowers physical dmg negation by -15 points each and slighly buffs elemental negation by 2 to 3 points..... WTF

It might be a decent option in PVP for pure melee builds, since a ton of people (most?) are casters. Anything that helps you close the gap without getting one-shot helps.
