For Slayer passive skill, see Overwhelm (Ascendancy passive).

Overwhelm is a keyword that applies to hits that deal physical damage, causing the hit to ignore a set value of the target's physical damage reduction.[1]

Mechanics

Overwhelm works similarly to resistance penetration, reducing the target's effective physical damage reduction against the hit by the specified amount. However, Overwhelm cannot reduce physical damage reduction into the negatives.[2]
