question regarding reduced elite damage

Posts: 5,435
does this apply to their affixes too?

for instance:

elite mobs with fire chains; i have 21% elite reduction; would fire chains be considered as elite damage and me taking reduced 21% damage from fire chains itself too?

Good question. I would assume YES based on the fact that they are, in fact, elites, and that's how they deal some of their damage.

Then again, assumption is the mother of all !@#$ ups.

Now, don't quote me on this, but I remember reading about elites%/damage reduction skills modifier somewhere saying that they only work on the actual hits from elite mob's, not stuff like molten pools. arcane sentries, plagued pools, etc for other dot stuff. It was a blue response put forth by someone trying to build a reduced max damage monk build.
