In Diablo 3, I haven't found any items with an "increase x resistance" attribute yet my character currently has +10 resistance across every element. How is that possible? What is affecting my resistance values?

Intelligence grants you resistance values.

Additionally, once you reach Nightmare (give or take), you'll start seeing equipment with bonuses to specific resistances.

Intelligence adds 0.1 resist all per point, you may just have 100 INT on the character.

Is there any cap on resistences? – Marcello Grechi Lins May 18 '12 at 20:10
