    3 resist auras gives passive resist?

    Hi. Just read a Zealot guide in the guide-thread. Anyway, it mentioned that the 3 resist auras also provide passive resists like this: 2points = +1 resist.

    So I tried it because I am REALLY low on fire resist (bloody andy). Anyway, NOTHING HAPPEND! i got +9 to defensive aura's but i didn't even get +1 to fireresist! Is it that only hard points count or is the guide I just read really really really crappy.

    First, the passive bonus is +1% max resist per 2 hard points.
    Second, only hard points count, so +skills doesn't help.

    Example: With 10 points invested in the Resist Fire aura, your fire resist cap
    will have gone up to 80% instead of the usual 75%.


    Trivia: With the aura active, everyone in range get a bonus of 1% per hard
    point to their max resist, in addition to all the resist it gets you/them.



    Hope that helps...
