    Seems like that -35 to lit resists would outweigh the +skills and FCR from most popular weapon equips, wouldn't it?

    Hmm... well as you said, it's lacking +skills, FCR, mana and anything useful other than that -res. It also has no room for facets. I think people might prefer to get Griffon's Eye and Eschutas or something and fill sockets with lit facets.

    That's actually an interesting question. If you had Crescent Moon, and a 55 infinity, and 2 Perfect facets - would your enemies have 0 resistance to lightning? Meaning - no immumity whatsoever? In which case, it would be far more valuable! Seeing as Infinity's go for a kazillion ists...

    the "-enemy resistance" modifier does not affect immune monsters. there are two exceptions to this (that i can remember): conviction and lower resist. even these two are at 1/5 effectiveness versus immune monsters. so a conviction with -60 enemy resist (i dont know what lvl conviction that is, i just picked the number randomly) would only work for -12 resist against lightning immune monsters. this is fine if that particular monster has say...110 or maybe just 100 lightning resist. infinity would break this monsters immunity, and then crescent moon and facets and whatever else would lower the monsters resistance further. but conviction can not "team up with" griffons eye, facets, crescent moon, etc etc to break immunities. (conviction will try to break the immunity but the others have no effect on a monster with 100 or more resistance)

    it's the same situation as blizz sorcs/doom the -reisist is huge but no one wants to be slower for it

    Doom isn't as cool though (no pun intended, because I hate puns), since it just adds onto CM.
