I'm currently a level 52 Monk (Act 1 Hell) and using One With Everything to boost my resistances. At the time that I decided to start using OWE, my Physical resistance was highest, so I bought other items with that at the Auction House. Now I've got that around 200 total resistance.
That's all pretty straightforward, but I wonder if I should stick to Physical resistance or if there's any benefit to change to something else. Specifically:
- Is it easier to find items with higher amounts of a certain type of resistance, or all they all distributed evenly?
- Is there a type of resistance that's less important to other classes, so I might be able to get it cheaper at the auction house?
I'm pretty sure the answer to the first one is "no". I searched the AH for chest armor wearable at my level (52) with each type of resistance, and could find pieces with 30 resistance but not 31.
The second question is more of a meta-game issue; if non-Monks think that (for example) Physical resistance is the most important resistance, that means I'll end up over-paying for items with that.
