Diablo® III

Mitigation % Question

I read all over the place people talking about 80%-90% damage mitigation but the only stat I really see comes just from my armor, about 60%. Is there something I am missing to add to this % amount?

all res, armor and dmg reduction all contribute to the "so called" dmg mitigation

let's say if your armor offers 60% dmg reduction, and if your all res offers 70% dmg reduction and you have no additional dmg reduction

then your total mitigation will be 1- (1-60%)X(1-70%)=1-0.4X0.3=0.88=88% mitigation

And if you have additional damage reduction then the formula will be

1-(1-armor dmg reduction%) X (1-AR dmg reduction) X (1- elite reduction1) X(1-elite reduction 2)
