never know you may run into DClone, so i would max it to be sure that way your always ready for anything.Evanta said:Hi, was wondering, since monster resists only hit -100 max, and more than half of the monsters have 0 resists in most elements anyway, isn't just hitting lvl 15 conviction the most optimum lvl, and put points elsewhere?
I'm not trying to laugh at your english but I totally do not understand what you're trying to say. Anyway the point I am trying to confirm is there is no point in getting beyond -100% resist since most monsters have 0 or immunity for resistance, and there is a cap of -100% so more conviction is out of point.WackenOpenAir said:in hell, monsters usually have resistance or imunity to 1 or 2 elements. in that case, the points after 50 are still not as usefull as before, but they are 1/3 or 2/3 as effective.
now you should compare that 1/3 or 2/3 with the other options, being the synergies.
1 point in conviction = 5% lower resists. since you are already around -100 for most of them, it would be 2.5% to total damage IF it worked on all resists. since however it usually only works on 1 or 2 now, you could devide it by 2, making it 1.25% to total damage.
the synergies add 10% to your damage modifier. that should be around 1200% already, so divide it by 12 to see its effect on the end damage. this makes it about 0.8%.
Conclusion: if you are in hell already, and otherwise you would put the points into synergies, conviction is better than the synergies.
I didnt know lvl 150% is the best it gets at lvl 25, but it would be the best you get anyway since after that you have even undone most of the monster's resistances. therefore, see what you expect to get in + skills, and dont get it beyond lvl 25.
when it removes immunity does it drop it down to 0 (or whatever the base for that monster class is in hell) and start the res reduction from there? or does it treat it like 100 res and reduce from there?WackenOpenAir said:and removes immunity.
If a monster initially spawns with an immunity, all skills and items that reduce resistance are reduced to 20% of their stated effectiveness.Frightcrawler said:? Syphilis, that doesnt make sense. Doesnt lvl 25 convic minus 150%? That would make cold resistance for the monster -30%, not 90%.
Unless I'm wrong, then excuse my ignorance.
