Elemental Essence Passive Skill

Did anyone understand what this Passive does? English is not my first language, but I think the translation is confusing. Can anyone explain what “reducing attack property penalties received by enemies by 5%” means?

if you use fire on fire property mobs (or same property attack on property mobs), property penalty (PP) will be 25%, meaning your dmg will be reduce by 25% (you deal 75% of your original dmg)
reduce property penalty mean reduce the part 25% by %.
For example 5% of 25% will be 1.25% reduce then PP = 25%-1.25% = 23.75% (you deal 76.25% of your original dmg)
50% of 25% will be 12.5% reduce then PP = 25%-12.5% = 12.5% (you deal 87.5% of your original dmg)
100% of 25% will be 25% reduce then PP = 25%-25% = 0% (you deal 100% of your original dmg)

It means your damage reduction against the same or stronger element will be less.

Just as lumo says. It works like that
Basically it’s maximum usefulness is when you are facing a map where majorities of the enemies have same attribute as your offense skills
Example is like Pyro-Ele-Tao in a map where there’s a lot of fire and electric type monster. Turning on this attribute will do good
