Never tested what happen when you stack everything, i will try in the next days if i have time.
Clarity is one of my fav buffs, since it *cut* 5 secs of all negative effect, on top of the 50% reduction. It really cleans you fast.
Anyway about affliction ecc, you actually have a whole of 4 ways to defend from it:
- real defence --> stack defences : no hit no effect. Quite intutive.
- functional defence --> stack -x% affliction duration effect ( resolve, lone Wolf ring, clarity, ecc). You may be hit, but the effect will expire do soon that is not a problem.
- pre-empive defence --> use a easily spammable buff ( best if istant cast) to use as a shield vs an affliction. Warriors,monks snd barb (frenzy!) are very good for it. Ex: you can alwsys keep up thunderous blows and swift strikes, so every time you are hit by a might or dexterity affliction, they *remove your buff instead than actually hit you*. You can easily replanish your buff 1 sec later and you bacome immune-like to that affliction. Note that A.I. can manage very well this.
- absolute immunity --> stack all immunity type item to cover everything ( skaen vest for perception and ???, Revku gloves for const, ecc)
Bonus: the other side of the medal is that if you want some of your buffs to never be removed ( i.e. you want to keep up robust for whole duration) you can try to find a constitution affliction immunity item. Even simple resistance is often enough: all tier 1 affliction attacks will be negated and your buff will not be removed.
