    Quick Question about Damage Reduction %

    I recently read (by searching these forums) that Damage Reduction is capped at 50%.

    Therefore if I have Shaftstop armor & Stormshield (Total DR=65%) I will only get 50% physical damage reduction.

    Can someone please verify this is accurate?

    Thanks.

    P.S. Is DR% reduced in Nightmare and Hell like other Resistances?

    DR% is capped at 50%, so 65% is "too much". DR% above 50% helps compensate for Decrepify and Amp Damage, but I don't think it's worth it.

    Even though DR% is just like other resistances, it does NOT get reduced in nightmare/hell. Neither does magic resistance.
