Advanced Poisoner Questions

1. I know lower resists work at 1/5 effectiveness on immunes. If this is enough to 'break' their immunity then lower resists from gear kicks in, but does it kick in at full -resists or at 1/5 also?

2. In hell, how far can you low can a monsters resists get? -100%?

3. If their resists resist is, say, -10%, does this mean 110% poison damage or is it calculated differently? (pretty sure this is correct but want to be sure).

4. Does blocking take place before bonearmor absorbs (ie doesn't absorb on blocked attacks)? It does right?

im not sure about the first three as i just made a poison necro that isnt very good :(

but the fourth one i can say that blocking takes place before your bone armor and bone armor only absorbs unblocked attacks.

1. It kicks in at full effect.
2. maximum is -100% resist.
3. you do 110% damage.
4. blocking is checked before bonearmor.

Poison necro can dominate if built correctly. If you don't know how, you end up with a necro like jebus has. Keep asking question so you know what to do to have a good one.

what about dr

does damage reduction increase the longevity of bone armor or does that only kick in after its gone?

It increases the longevity of Bone Armor. First DR is calculated and then the remaining damage is transmitted to Bone Armor.

And what is the correct build for a VenomMAncer?
