    Question about Infinity and breaking immunities

    Sorry if this has been posted (in which case, can you point me to the link, cause all I see are post about Infinity and lightning sorcs), but I was wondering how effective is Infinity at breaking immunities for my Blizzard sorc. Basically, can I break a lot of cold immunes with this on my merc? Or is it a total waste if I'm just using it to break cold immunes with this? Thanks for any help.

    Infinity's Conviction (slvl 12, -85%) will break immunities up to 116% resist.

    Because 85/5 = 17
    116-17=99, broken immunuty.
    117-17=100, not broken.

    Your cold mastery will kick in after that with full effect.

    Unfortunately there are many cold immunes that can't be broken, that have over 116% resist. Your best bet is to check Arreat Summit's monster guides, there's too many monsters to mention in one post.

    Or you could go out and check yourself in-game, and make a mental note of which ones are broken and which aren't.

    cold sorcs don't benefit greatly from infinity because few cold immunes can be broken and apart from that cold mastery already works against resistances (which are hard-capped at -100)

    it's more useful with fire/lightning sorcs or other classes that use these kind of attacks (javazon, trapper)
