I'm attempting to build up some resistances for the higher difficulty and was wondering what type helps against the desecrator affix.

    From my experience, you don't build up resistance to desecration zones, you avoid them. My monk is built for tanking and still gets destroyed by desecration if I stand in it at higher difficulty levels :)

  • I agree, that's the ideal situation but sometimes jailer/waller doesn't make that completely feasible.

It is physical damage:[source]

Desecrators create a "glowing void zone" beneath the feet of a character. These function like small Firewalls, dealing damage to any character who stands in them. The void zones do not move once cast, and can thus be avoided without great difficulty.

  • Monster Level Minimum: 22
  • Available to: Rare/Champion
  • Damage Type: Physical
  • Additional Resistances: None
