Diablo 3 - Basics - Resistances. Last modified: 2014.07.23

Resistance is one of the most important character stat. In Diablo III there are 5 different element types which can be reduced by having enough resistance. Cold, Lightning, Fire, Arcane and Poison. Any Champion or Rare pack monsters can have different enchantments which makes them hard to take down. Any item types can give resistances. If there is no "resist to xy element" on the item check how many intelligence does it give. If there is intelligence on the item it also gives all resistance. 10 intelligence worth 1 resistance to all elements.
There are also 3 other types of resistances: Disease, Physical and Holy. These damages can only be blocked, absorbed or reduced but cannot be resisted.
