    ultimate lighting res/absorb gear?

    i want to do a lot of hell baal runs for the exp, but it gets really annoying when i round the corner and get fried by 2342 black souls ... i rember reading somewhere on one of these diabloii forums that if you had the right gear the souls would actually end up healing you ... what would you need and how would you calculate the damage/healing they'd do to you? (with the absorb figured in)

    belt would be t-gods.. but what else either absorbs lighting or adds to max resist?

    Tgods + Guardian Angel + p topaz HoZ + Highlords/mara + some more light res from charms or gear (around 30 I think) should take care of it.

    Lightsaber has 25% lightning absorb and wisp projectors have 10-20% absorb
    *note-40% max for percent absorb*

    Well, "ultimate" would be something like this:

    Guardian Angle +15%max resist
    Thundergod's Vigor +10%max LR +20 lightning absorb
    Blackhorn's Face +20 lightning absorb
    Lightsabre & 15% lightning absorb Wisp Projector OR 2x 20% lightning absorb Wisp Projector.

    This leaves you with 40 straight absorb, 40% absorb and 95% max LR. These are applied in the order Resist, absorb %, straight absorb. So if we calculate backwards:

    40 absorb will negate 80 lighning damage
    80 damage after 40% absorb was 400 damage
    400 damage after resists was 8000 damage

    With this setup anything less than 8000 lightning damage will heal you if you got less than your full HP.

    Well, I don't know, but it's rather in the hundreds than in the thousands. Thundergod's will be all you need actually. 85% resist lightning +20 straight absorb is enough to enable you to take a lot of hits from Gloams. The above was rather theoretical.

    I heard gloams also do physical damage in their lightning shots.

    I have an assassin with tgods,95 resist lightning, and she still takes substantial dmg from gloams if about 4+ are shooting at her at once

    I just wear ga and tgods and i can walk or stand inside of them and they do zero damage. Oh i also where exile so i get 95 resist on fire/lighting and cold. I actually found my pally to be the only one that has been able to do this .... i might start wearing ga on all my characters when the baal run :clap:

    Ok ultimate resist/absorb is as follows: (note:for pallys)

    4 P Topazed Pally Shield (up to 205 Light resist gg)
    Ort'ed GA
    Ort'ed Blackthorns
    30%Resist Lightning Jeweled Wizspike/Silence Wpn/Maybe LS (30 Resist Lightning Jeweled)
    T-Gods
    2xWisps
    A high Light Resist Ammy
    Soul Spur (47 Light Resist)
    High Light Resist Crafted Belt
    High Light Resist Crafted Gloves....
    and finally...Salvation.

    Some of that stuff is really hard to get, others not really.

    heh Trapasns/Fohers/Light Sorcs...GL damaging that.
