    Hi.
    As for your first question you better wait for someone else to answer that.

    Ãœber Mephisto has a lvl 20 conviction i think.. with a quick look at the arreat summit it lowers the resists with -125%

    Someone should correct me if im wrong:p

    Re: 2 questions

    Your first question is not that simple. Different enemies do different amounts of damage with different elements. In general though, you will need straight absorb. %absorb is capped at 40%, so %absorb can never be enough to turn damage into life.

    The order resists and absorb are applied is:
    • resists
    • % absorb
    • straight absorb
    If you can find the damage a monster does, you can then find what combination is necessary to be healed. Example:

    An enemy does 100 lightning damage. If you have 75 resist lightning and 20 lightning absorb, you are healed 20 damage and take 5 damage.
