Resists in PVP

Postby EricM » Wed Jun 04, 2014 11:04 am

So I'm sure BJ knows the answer, but I've been wondering about this for a while. I feel like I read somewhere at some point that in PVP, resist debuffs (Fractures, Poison, Wrath) can't lower resistance below 0%. Is this true or is it that they cannot lower damage mitigation below 0%?

Because... if for say, they can't lower resistance below 0%... there's really no point in magic resist gems, is there? Whether or not you have them, you'll be at 0% resistance.

War Mages with Magma Jet and 3 stacks fracture get me down to -10% ice/fire mitigation.

Just tested this in PvP.
Definitely ice/fire fractures reduce your ice/fire resistance below 0.

My defence: 50%
My magic resist: 18%
My ice/fire mitigation: 59%

My ice/fire mitigation reduced as follows:
1 fracture: 51.5%
2 fractures: 44%
3 fractures: 36.5%

So effectively my resist reduced to -27% by 3 fractures which is less 45% as you would expect. I assume its same for poison and wrath. Will try to find out (although spirit justis very rare in pvp).

So keep those magic resist gems they are still very useful!

Can confirm it works the same for wrath and poison. Also possible to go to negative total damage mitigation (most likely with smoldering armor -30% defense from WM Magma Jet).

So no difference in way PvP and PvE treats debuffs.

In the Past, the lowest PvP Nature Mitigation could go was 0%. Have you recently gotten a negative Nature Mitigation in PvP?

MY PERSONAL OPINION
One of my wishes, is Direct Challenge PvP so I can more accurately explore the mechanics of BoH (also History and Replay, but now I am just getting greedy).

CJ's wish is still Armored Bunny Slippers :-)
