When I hover over an individual Resistance in character details, it shows two percentages added together:

Granted, they should be multiplied, not added, as I am obviously not invincible, but where does this other number come from? It is the same for all elements.


The second number is damage reduction from your items or skills. In my case, it was the Unhallowed Essence set, that gives 60% damage reduction.

Despite strange way to display two numbers added together, second number is calculated in a correct mutiplicative way if there are several skills or items in play. For example, adding a Cindercoat (50% damage reduction) changes my displayed number from 59.96% to 79.98%
