corrado33 Posted March 22, 2016 Share Posted March 22, 2016 I just started playing PoE, after playing all of the BG series to death when I was younger. (Had a maxed character in every class that I used throughout every game.) However, as I was fighting some "difficult" fights yesterday, I realized something. There is only one spell that I can find that reduces an enemies' damage resistance. Is this right? After browsing the wiki I could only find "Expose vulnerabilities" that does a -5 DR on the enemy. Sure, there are TONS of spells that increase the damage your character does (I think.) That does something similar, but the lack of Foe DR spells is surprising. Also, there are many spells that allow you to HIT the enemy easier. Reducing their deflection/reflex/whatever. However, I wasn't having trouble hitting the enemy, as I hit them almost every roll, I was having trouble doing significant damage to them, even though I was using weapons that their armor was weak against. I usually hit for ~20 damage but they had a 24 or 27 DR (i forget). I don't think they had any buffs as I had killed everybody else (and it took FOREVER to kill him, so any buffs would have worn off.) I mean, sure, I tend to lag behind on upgrading my party's weapons (I'm a hoarder) but still. I find it odd that there aren't many spells to take care of this type of thing. Maybe something for the barbarian like "Crack armor" (I'm thinking of final fantasy's "armor break.") Please correct me if I'm wrong. What do you do when you're faced with an enemy with a much higher DR than you can overcome? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
