In the bounty hunter: powertech skill tree, the skill puncture lets rail shot ignore up to 60% of your opponents armour and the skill superheated rail let you ignore 30% of your oppenents armour. So does the combination of these two skills mean that you are ignoring 90% of your opponents armour with each shot? or does the game calculate the values some other way?

  • How far down the trees are each of these skills? They may have intentionally made it so that you cannot have both skills at once.

I would have thought the answer was 72% (1-(1-.6)*(1-.3)), but all the sources I find seem to suggest that 90% is the correct reduction.
