What does lowering defense do to enemies?

The artillerist skill Summon Turret has a tripod “armor destruction” that lowers the defense by 12% for 6 sec when hit.

Does this mean they take increased damage during this time?

Probably something to the effect. Most classes have a debuff or buff that last about 6 secs. So ideally you would pair these with your group for maximum damage windows.

Yes. Armor in this game reduces damage taken by a % based on how much you have. If the target has 1000 armor then your debuff would remove 60 and make them take more damage.
