    -% enemy resist question

    if i were to equip something like trang ouls wing that has -% enemy poison resist, would this act on any poison dmg or just dmg from my weapon or any spell i might cast?

    It'll affect any poison damage dealt by you (not your merc or minions). So it'll help Poison Dagger, Poison Nova etc.

    If you are using the BoTD yes, if it's on your Merc no. Any poison damage from a spell or source equipped on you, melee weapon, bow including charms and equipment gets the benifit of + %Poison damage and -%Poison resist from the Trangs set and any facet jewels etc. It is fairly difficult to use a damaging 6 socket weapon (for BoTD) and the Trang-oul Wing at the same time though.

    If you could bramble your merc or poison facet him it'll help out the nova though :D

    The Death's Web unique wand gives between -40% and -50% and facet jewels can give from -3% to -5% each. And I managed to find a perfect 5/5 poison facet last night in the Pit :thumbsup:

    Yes it was...:lol:

    And tonight I just could not beleive my luck. A Death Web dropped in the WSK level 2 to my original Necro. Only a -41% and + 1 to P&B skills version of the wand so the bottom end of the possible good mods... but hey a Death Web is just so much better than any other wand for my Poisonmancer that is still a brilliant find :clap: .

    Then 10 mins later my Necro was ambushed at the entrance to the Throne of Destruction by Burning Souls and Stygian Dolls and lost 30 million exp with no hope of getting my corpse...

    I still think of this as a lucky night though.
