    couple of bvc qs

    i dont understand how u get max resists with a bvc. using the universal bvc setup which is:

    coa 30 resists
    enigma 0
    grief/beast 0
    dracs 0
    arach 0
    2 ravens 0
    highlords 35 light resist

    about 60 from nat resist
    about 35 from torch + anni
    so total of about 125 all resists. 160 light. -100 from hell thing and u got about 25 all. with that little resistance a sorc using telekenis could kill u

    secondly, ive heard something about the deadly strike from death cleaver doesnt stack. could sumone clarify it for me? thanx

    u cant get it unless u use 3 res boots

    u can compensate by using 5 fhr/5 res all , and 20/11 res scs

    Resists usually come from:

    Helm
    Highlords
    FCR rings
    the 4x 5fhr/res SCs you should be carrying
    Res boots
    Nat res
    Torch
    Anni

    CoA 30
    Anni 20
    Torch 20
    FHR scs 20
    Nat res 64
    Highlord's + 35 light
    triple resistances boots ~+46 to fire/cold/light

    Totals at 235% Light (aka 60% stacked), 200% Fire and Cold (aka 25% stacked) and 154% Poison (aka 54% in Hell).

    Now, let's see the weak areas:
    Cold: The stack is not even needed, as cold sorcs will lower your resistances by ~265-300%, making it -100% or close.
    Poison: Can easily be gotten off your rings via mods such as +15% all res. Two rings with such mods gets you at 184% resistances. Then there's always antidotes.

    The deadly strike has no effect on anything else but Death Cleaver itself. It won't add any damage to your secondary weapon.

    However yes, the deadly strike of Death Cleaver's is stacked upon for example Highlord's' when calculating Death Cleaver's final damage.

    its very posible to find a decent dual or tri resists rare boot 35-40 fire/cold/light is spawnable, you wont be using universal vs many elements because its suicide with 10-30 resists.
