    Resistance levels?

    I've managed to get several characters into the 90s and done well with each of them. But their resistances max out at 75. Is there any possibility they can get higher? If so, how?

    There are items that increase maximum resistance but you can't get any higher than 95%. The guardian Angel armor ups all resists by 15%. Waterwalks boost max fire resists. And I think Venom Guard cranks up poison. I also think the unique ringmail boosts all resist maximums by 5%.

    Also a Paladin gains a passive bonus to maximum resist by putting points into his three resist skills at 2 for 1 and it goes up to 1 for 1 for that specific aura any time he uses.

    However, 75% is really good enough because you can use absorb items to make yourself pretty much immune to an element. Raven Frost rings, for instance, absorb 20% of all damage from Ice attacks meaning they reduce damage by 20% and heal it back instantly effectively covering 40%.
