Questions about Elemental Absorb I was in hell with about 60% cold absorb from two items. all my resists were negative. But I thought since I had over 50% resist I would heal when hit with that element. Nevertheless, Cold Death Mages damaged me. Also I have 40% lightning absorb, and I turned on salvation so my resists were positive. Although I don't have over 50%, Bartuc's lightning seemed to be healing me. Does anyone know exactly how absorb works? Is there a cap? If so, is it different vs monsters and vs people?
