Damage Reduction (DR) is a gameplay mechanics in Paladins that reduces the damage Champions take in the game.

While DR is getting affected by Diminishing returns, the nature of DR itself has increasing returns in terms of effective health. And DR's effective health bonus increases faster than the Diminishing Return formula reduces it. This means that stacking DR is valuable. Champions with high DR like Inara, Yagorath, or Mal'Damba benefit the most out of the item Card Haven.png Haven.
