    damage reduce cap?

    Is it 50%? I think it is. I've been using Stormshield, Enigma, COIA on my druid but I found that if I use ber'd SS and Enigma, I cud reach 50% dmg reduce. Am I right?

    Yes, percentage-based Damage Reduction is capped at 50%.

    Extra %DR isn't necessarily wasted, since amplify damage (cast by Necros or "cursed" monsters) will reduce your %DR by 100%... so under normal circumstances, someone with 50% DR will take just as much damage as someone with 100% DR, but if you get cursed, that 50% DR would turn into -50% DR, while the 100% just becomes 0%.

    Still, that specialized scenario aside, 50% is all you'll ever use.
