View Full Version : Please help me understand something...

I really only want to know one thing. How does resist vs (damage type) "number / -" work? For example, resist vs fire 20/-? I'd like to know if anyone knows how it actually figures into the damage calculations, to decide on a certain armor over another (Davik's war suit vs Echani Fiber Armor [fully upgraded]).
I mean, w/ Davik's war suit you get a defense point of 8 but its 10/- for fire and cold, whereas Echani is 7 defense w/ like 20/- for fire and cold. Is 10/- better or worse than 20/- and by how much does it actually effect the amount of damage taken by those damage sources? If anyone knows how those damage resistances works and could explain it out for me it would be a great help for me in the future in my armor choices.

If I recall correctly the Damage Resistances such as 10/- this absorbs the first 10 points of damage from that specific attack per round, a 20/- would absorb the first 20 points of damage from the specific attack and so on, so the higher the number the better.

I hope this helps! :D
