What's Resillience?

Arenas
Kittycleave team. Rough to play this xpac, but the challenge is fun. Curious what the point of resillience is though.

3 matches, we face MLS (Mage, Lock, Shaman). We're doing okay, fight is going longer than we would prefer but we're holding in well and winning mana/healing battle. My holy pally suddenly gets tombed by the mage and is nuked from 75%-100% hp to dead. Mage didn't use single cast time. Nothing but ice lance the whole fight. One tomb he hits a 4.7 resil healer for 25-35k+ 3 times in a row. So even when we play our cc's right and control the fight and survive through their burst with no trinkets or anything a frost mage nukes our healer in 4 seconds.

Resillience effects your framerate right? Because it's pointless against mages who don't even know what a cast bar looks like anymore unless it says "Evocation".
no resilience doesn't effect your frame rate. It reduces the amount of damage taken from enemy players. "Roughly" every 1000 resilience you get a %10 damage reduction from pvp damage
Lol he is saying its broke. It doesn't reduce dmg like it should. Especially for mages. Im on that team and I have 4.9k resl and I've had a mage literally 3 shot me. Start with a 40k frostbolt out of invis. Then a 50k and a 60k ice lance. Tell me what I am supposed to do to that? Rogue would open with a cheap shot and before that stun ended I was dead. And don't tell me I should have trinketed the cheap shot. The framerate thing he said was a joke saying that it doesnt give any benifit for pvp against mages.

wow dude, srsly?
Yes a 60k ice lance. Shadow was there. I was pissed
Wasn't there a time at the start of s10 when resil didn't work in arenas? I remember something like getting 40k UA dispels back then.

Saying it happened, and that your arena partner was there, doesn't mean !@#$.

SS or it didn't happen. Of you with your resil gear and showing it was out of invis.

It wasn't so much a resil bug as it was a UA bug.

It wasn't taking resil into consideration if a healer was dispelling UA off of someone other than themselves.
Every 1000 resilience is 12% less damage taken.

So he did 150k damage in 5 seconds? Were talking about a mage here and not a rogue, right?
yes. a mage hit me that hard. and i dont have a SS. i didnt think to do it
I never got hit by a 60K damage.. it just dont happen. Only if u r naked.

More than 4.5K res.. impossible, i think.

resil doesnt do anything when a priest can just mana burn you til you are oom and then you cant do anything

Nope, you've overvalued it a bit.


1000 resilience ~12% less damage taken (1-0.88^1)
2000 resilience ~22% less damage taken (1-0.88^2)
3000 resilience ~32% less damage taken (1-0.88^3)
4000 resilience ~40% less damage taken (1-0.88^4)
5000 resilience ~47% less damage taken (1-0.88^5)

Every 1000 resilience means you take 12% less damage than without that 1000 resilience.

Total brain fart, I was going additive rather than multiplicative.

Disregard my ignorance.
