    quick Infinity (conviction) question

    OK, I got the whole 1/5 effectivness when breaking immunity, but what happens after the immunity is broken?

    Does the entire -85% from conviciton work at 1/5 effectivness, or does it only stay at 1/5 effectiveness until the monster hits 99% resistance?

    Say we have a 110% resistant monster and we are carrying infinity ourselvs (with -50% enemy light resist). That could mean the monster is at 110 -(85/5 = 17) -50 = 43% resistant or 110 - (55/5 = 11) -30 -50 = 19% resistant.

    Thanks again.

    It is the former. Conviction (and/or LR) breaks first, then -enemy resistances comes in.

    And the entire % of the conviction/lower resist will be at 1/5 effectiveness, even if only a portion would have been sufficient to break the immunity. Likewise, if an immune creature is under the affect of both lower resist and conviction, both will work at 1/5 effectivenss, even if only one source would have been sufficient to break the immunity.
