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?

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

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

  • @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. Nov 19, 2011 at 21:01
  • You mean 44.25% resistance? (.75)^2=56.25
