    Infinity + -resistance

    If i have a merc using infinity and he applied the aura to a lightning immune monster removing the immunity will the -resist from my gear apply at the full % rate or divided by 5? AKA i use griffons w/ facet, crescent moon and a facet in vipermagi totalling 65% -light resist vs a monster w/ 97 lightning resist courtesy of infinity. Will my damage be applied vs a 97 - 13 = 84 resist (65/5 = 13) or vs a 97 - 65 = 32 light resist? Sorry the post is ugly but thanks for responses!

    In the case of breaking an immunity, Conviction and -resist% on your gear are calculated separately. Take a monster with 114% Lightning Resist, like your example:

    Conviction works at 1/5 effectiveness when breaking an immunity. Monster's resist is now 114-(85/5) = 114-17 = 97%

    Your -65% resist will then be calculated after immunity is broken:
    97% - 65% = 32% resist.
