The importance of resistances in Classic. Hey, I know resistances are probably the most important stat a character can have (with health), atleast on hardcore and up until recently, I've been under the impression that one should stack Lightning, Cold and Fire resistances and somewhat ignore poison unless it comes as an extra. But after reading some guides on this site, I noticed people are ignoring cold and getting poison resists instead. Is cold resistance really that useless? Is poison that useful? What are your thoughts?
