Grubba, I don't think you understand how armor and damage reduction works.A mob with for a mob with 13,000 armor, sunder only reduces the effectiveness of armor penetration by TWO TENTHS of a PERCENT (0.002). In other words, if you were doing 3000 DPS, sunder armor is now robbing you of 6 dps. QQ moar.Further, this change in effectiveness is greatest at low armor levels (when armor is hardly the limiting factor) and reaches equilibrium somewhere between 15k and 20k, at which point, sunder armor actually ENHANCES the value of Armor Penetration.To wit, armor penetration has a -0.08% CiE at 15k armor, but a +0.03% increase at 20k armor.BRK is usually all on top of the theory crafting, but he completely bombed this one.
