    infinity resist break question

    Infinity
    50% Chance To Cast Level 20 Chain Lightning When You Kill An Enemy
    Level 12 Conviction Aura When Equipped
    +35% Faster Run/Walk
    +255-325% Enhanced Damage (varies)
    -(45-55)% To Enemy Lightning Resistance (varies)
    40% Chance of Crushing Blow
    Prevent Monster Heal
    0.5-49.5 To Vitality (Based on Character Level)
    30% Better Chance of Getting Magic Items

    does the - light resist only work for your merc, or does it also come in handy for a lfzon or light sorcy ? and if the lvl 12 convic( -85% resist, don't know the max of resist a superunique can get) doesnt break a superuniques resist, can the - 45/55% light resist break it, or is that the same as cold mastery, and doesnt it affect the immunes among us ?

    yes it works on mercs and yes its good for light sorcs and lfzons.

    and they "may" affect immune monsters but that doesnt matter in the end b/c they are "immune" to that element and wont take any dmg.

    The "-Lightning resistance" only works for attacks from the merc, not the player. This cannot break immunity.

    The -85% resistance works for everyone who attacks the monster. If that monster is immune, then the -85% works at 1/5 effectiveness (either just down to 99, where it works at full effectiveness, or 1/5 all the way - the information I have is conflicting.) If the lightning immunity is broken, then the "-% enemey lightning resistance" mod can kick in, but only for the merc.

    For example, assume the monster has 110% lightning immuntity. The conviction will take it down 17% to 93% or 110-99=11*5=55, 85-55=30, so 69% resistance. This will be the lightning resistance for everyone who attacks the monster, except the merc, who will get the additional benefit of the "-%enemey resistance."

    Crescent Moon
    10% Chance To Cast Level 17 Chain Lightning On Striking
    7% Chance To Cast Level 13 Static Field On Striking

    No, it will not work with ur LFzon, it only limit to the person who wear that weapon. This runeword is great for certain class, for example HolyShock Paladin, Vengence-Paladin, Dream-Melee-Sorc, and I forgot if the Inifinity or Crentson Moon can be made on a Spear, if that can be used on spear, then it will be very useful for CSzon.
