I am really sorry i know there is alot ALOT of threads out there like this, but everyone is just so confusing....
All i want to know is
What is 5% melee reduction as Resist/armor
does 5% melee reduction convert to like:
50 all ress
1000 armor, or how does it work?
Is melee reduction worth it
I want to know if i should use my IK set or try get something else with all ress or sometyhing

it cannot be thought of as a static number such as 5% = 1000 armor, the value would be specific to what armor/res you already have;
in terms of relative value compared to armor/res vs melee it is dynamic
it does exactly what it says though, 5% less melee damage, so your survival vs melee is (1/.95) = 5.263% greater than without it
if you have multiple sources, bracer + belt they DO NOT work additionally (this would be overpowered and function asymptotically) they will work multiplicatively (the number on the 'details' section will tell you)
5% + 5%
this means you take 90.25% damage which would function as 1/.9025
= 10.8% more survival than without the items (vs melee only)
