    How does Infinity actually beat immunity?

    This confuses me greatly. There are two different attributes which seem to do it: the aura, and the - enemy lightning resistance.

    Which one actually beats the immunity thought? I don't think it can be the aura because it only removes lite rest rather than all other immunities - which leads me to believe it is down the the - enemy lightning resitance.

    Although even this doesnt make sense, as cold sorcs constantly stuggle against the masses of immunities even though their mastery supposedly beats it.

    Assuming it was the former, why does it only work for lite?

    Assuming it is the latter, could I therefore overcome immunities with facets? If this is the case, am I right in assuming immunes have effectively 110res, so a few choice facets could take care of them?

    I have probably made some error here but please give me answers to my mad ramblings!

    Its aura. Low resist curse is other way to break immunes.

    Facets etc.. and that -resist (if sorc uses polearm herself) are there to help killing after immunes is broken. Without any -resist items monsters (those that are broken) have still around 95% or more resist, so without -resist items, those are very hard to kill.

    Lightning immunes monster have low resist, around 110% so they can be broken.

    Cold immunes are around 175%, so its impossible to break them. Those are high because cold mastery works like any -resist item. Cold sorc are even now overpowered, way way way too overpowered if conviction aura could broke those cold immunes. It just one way to keep game at least in some balance.

    Um... Yes, I am really sorry. I'm just pretty exhausted right now, and then another immunity thread pops up... My bad.:undecided:

    Thanks amazon, really cleared things up.

    @ berg: I did look through a bit, and thought if it wasn't in the stickied library thread it wasn't there, which evidently isn't the case.

    Which is why I proposed to sticky that thread :azn: Anyway, you can use the forum's built-in Search feature. It is really faulty, but it should at least net you some result upon searching for "immunity" or "immunities".

    I use this quick list as to what Immunities Infinity will break

    Re searching: Use Google advanced search and put forums.diabloii.net as the site. You can search for small words that the forum search would ignore.

    @ berg - I learnt a long time ago a tired/annoyed person should walk away from the keyboard. You may use hand gestures, however. :smiley:
