With all of the Armor Pen on the BiS gear, and getting a full set of that rather than four pieces of tier gear, I can imagine that it would add up to a high amount of Armor Pen, seeing as I don't have too much Ulduar gear as of now but I have over 20% Armor Pen on my character page.
But is the 20% extra damage per disease, adding up to 60% with Frost Fever and Blood Plague, rather than 20% without the set bonus more worth it for DPS?
I was under the impression that it inceased the bonus by 20% multiplicative and not addative. That would result in a 20% increase of 10% which is 12%. So in reality it gives 4% extra damage to HS instead of 40% more damage to HS. The main reason that I was under the impression that it works multiplicative is just that if it was addative it seems to be too good.
If I'm wrong please feel free to correct me and do so as soon as possible(because if it does work the other way around I should stop slacking and get the 4-piece)
