Curious about mechanic of dealing Armor Piercing

I was buildmaking some crossbow build.

thinking of my weapon’s chaos conversion,
I noticed the weapon has chance to pierce armor.

if some damage has converted into other type,
and when the armor piercing is activated,
would the flat dmg of weapon just calculated by pierce modifier and deals piercing dmg? whatever the dmg has converted into other stuff? such as chaos, elemental… etc

sry for my english, hope you understand I’m saying :slight_smile:

The basic Physical damage on the weapon is converted to magic stuff first (in your case chaos) and the physical damage that is left, if any, is converted to piercing damage.

Wow, Thanks a lot :slight_smile:
have a great day!
