    Does Lower Resist low magic resistance?

    I have played single game with PlugY,which can show you character's resistance detail(include magic resistance).

    I observed Lower Resist casted by Oblivion Knight can reduce your magic resistance(Plug Y showed a reduction in magic resistance).But Lower Resist casted by player can not do this.

    I casted Lower Resist on Greater Mummy(Hell),which can not break its magic immunity.


    ps: Maybe it is a noob question,but it really confused me.:undecided:

    In 1.09 it worked which is why bone nec used it, but it's patched in 1.10. I don't know why the Oblivion Knight can lower magic resist tho...maybe they fixed for necro but forgot to fix for monsters?!!?!?

    Lower Resistance only reduces resistance to elemental damage, not magical or physical.

    Now I confirmed the function and patch history of this curse.

    Thanks.

    I'm sure you meant it, but just to make it clear: it works for Poison also (which is not elemental).

    It never lowered magic resist in 1.09. That's why all of the smart marrowwalker bone necs used decreprify.

    You had to be really smart.

    Regardless, I'm certain LR didn't affect magic res in 1.09, 1.10, or 1.11. I'm 99% certain that it didn't before that.

    LR did affect magic resist in 1.09 and previous. It stopped affecting it in 1.10 and subsequent patches.
