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

Thanks guys, you helped a lot

and i want to ask guys.
if i wont take skill Elemental Essence, thats no problem?
i think better i put the another offensive skill.

and if i not put elemental essence still i get the Pinalty Elemental??

I don’t have the skill on my pyro-ele-tao and I’m doing fine. Ten skill points is a lot for a skill that’s situationnal, and I’d rather get the offensive skills maxed instead. However, if your build is something like Warlock-Elementalist, you MUST get it, since many many mobs are dark based and having 50% less penalty on dark attacks is a must have, plus you would do double damage against Skiaclipse which is holy based.

depend on build.
WL ele tao/FF is WC killer.
