Can someone explain resistances to me?

Post by sksjhfo on Sun Oct 20, 2013 10:35 am

So I see in the uber guides that you need hundreds of resistances for certain bosses, like 500+ for Quov Tsin and Belial has 250% pierce or something. But since the absolute max cap is 95, I am confused.

My question is in Quov Tsin's case; what does the 500 and the 95 mean? What if I have 500 resists to all and 80 max?

If your max resist is 75%, you resist 75% of all elemental damage, however, piercing drops your total resistance down, so if a monster had 100% pierce and you had 75% resist TOTAL, then you'd have -25% resist. So... if you had 95% max resist AND you had 195% total resists AND the bad guy had -150% pierce, your resists would drop from 195% (with a max of 95%) to 45%, even though your max and total resists are higher than that. Got it?

Alright I figured that was the case but wanted to make sure. Thank you for clearing that up.
