Haha funny. No idea what I was doing there. I was working it out as I typed. I'll fix in a min.

There are some conflicting reports on mortar being physical or fire, but someone tested with Superstition and found it could not be physical.

The same test was done with fire chains.

I will also add RD, because it is physical.

EDIT: Just to be clear, those tests don't prove they are fire. It only proves they aren't physical.

Errm, that was almost as dumb as what I typed!

:P

EDIT: Can't believe how much conflicting information there is on this out there btw. I am way too tired to test though right now.

I am trying to find some fire chain and mortar Es right now. I got purely stacked fire resist to test with.

I will OWE then remove OWE to test.

Fire chains are physical, mortar is fire. Fairly certain of this.

Why are you fairly certain?

Because I used to be a phys monk with no OWE, fire chains bother you very little compared to other things.

I guess you tested it though - so i'm probably wrong. But i'm sure i've read before they are physical.

Actually the best way to test would be cheap individual resist jewelry and no other gear. Gonna start testing like this now.
