# Do elemental resistances stack with magical resistance

I play a breton so have some magical resistance. I gather that this resists all magic. So if I have 25% magic resistance and 25% frost resistance, do I actually have 50% frost resistance?

If I'm reading the questionc correctly, the proposed duplicate asks if resistances of the same kind, but from different sources stack. This question asks if magic resistance stacks with elemental resistances. – DJ Pirtu Feb 25 at 6:41

The two effects stack multiplicatavely, not additively, up to a maximum of 80%.

To use your example, you'd end up with 32% resistance.

Cheers, what is the formula? – DeanMc Nov 19 '11 at 20:52
@DeanMc multiplicative means Damage Input * (1-Resist Element%) = 1st aggregate. 1st aggregate * (1-Resist Magic%) = final result. Because they're being multiplied, the order is irrelevant, and they'll both return the same diminished result. – Raven Dreamer Nov 19 '11 at 21:01
You mean 44.25% resistance? (.75)^2=56.25 – DCShannon Feb 25 at 5:10
