Quick question on resistance stacking

Recommended Posts

Resistances of the same kind apparantly don't stack. It's a 1/0 thing. Sad, I know...

Well, divine purpose should stack fine, since divine purpose doesn't actually give you "resistance," it gives you a 20-point defense boost against affliction attacks. The defense boost, since it comes from a passive, will stack with other defense boosts and with resistances.

 

"Resistance" (which is given by unflinching) from multiple sources won't stack. "Resistance" doesn't give a defense boost; it just automatically downgrades any affliction of that type you gain by 1 stage (so from a level 2 to level 1 affliction, or from a level 1 affliction to nothing).

That one I don't know. I don't have the beta. :)

 

Thanks anyways. Real quick just want to clarify that critical hits are separate from penetration ie I can penetrate without a critical or could I potentially critical without a penetration?

Yeah, those are separate. But critical hits get a bonus to penetration (in addition to their bonus to damage) -- how much, I don't know exactly. But critical hits do make it easier to penetrate armor. And since penetration/overpenetration affects damage, critical hits end up affecting damage in two different ways.

Yes to both. Crits give +50% to your penetration value but are otherwise separate from over/under penetration calculations.
