Armor vs All resist

if I have 75% dmg red from my armor which stats all dmg red on it do i even need to worry about AR since getting it to 75% would be about 900 all.

I'm running on around 77% armor/resist with 25k life. (10000/1000)
Considering Barbarians take less damage than ranged, double it to 50k and you'll be a beast?

You need both.

AFAIK, Damage mitigation calculates based on a (Armor * Resist Stat) equation.

What that translates to this: You want both Armor and All Resist, AND you want them to be in a 10/1 ratio as much as possible.

Even if your armor was at 100% you would still take 50% damage as armour can only negate half the damage. The other half is calculated off your resists. As the others have said......you need to balance them both.
