I ROFL'd then I realised Fitz is probably talking about the kind of dmg not the kind of resist needed...unlike edz, I'm giving you the benefit of the doubt Fitz!! :P

:lol:

I want all the holy resist.
if we had holy resist, wont monks be de-resisiting themselves? therefore we would be technically nerfing ourselves.

*brain xplosion*
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.


and this is why I brought it up :)
AFAIK

Plagued - poison
Molten - fire
Frozen - cold
RD - physical
Arcane - arcane (holy)
Desecrator - physical
Electrified - lightning
fire chains - physical
Mortar - fire
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.
