But when a monster was previously immune the 1/5th penalty will still count for both.Damric said:And what is nice is that conviction and lower resist stack. My friend and I did some experimenting and I lowered his resists with conviction then lowered them even further with lower resist. So versus monsters once you break an immunity you can also break its resistance even further by using both. My mage summoner uses this tactic.
No. Only LR and Conviction are used to break immunities. Other sources of -Enemy resist don't count.skraper said:If i use an act 5 merc w/ grief can the - poison resistance mod help break immunities?
It is impossible. You would need to find a way to take away 21% of their resists. That would mean having an LR with -105% Enemy resists, since Conviction doesn't lower poison resistance. Even a level 80 LR doesn't reach -105%.skraper said:Their resistance to posion is 120 meaning in order to do *any* damage i would need to have a combined total of -100 poison resist, if it is even possible.
