Help Index :: Attributes :: resistances

Resistances are a measure of your character's vulnerability to various forms
of damage. Negative resistances result in your character taking more damage
from the attack, while positive resistances reduce the damage. The maximum
resistance you can acquire in any resistance is 100%, which renders you immune
to that form of attack.

* Magic resistance: resist magic damage from spells like magic missile as well
as most miscellaneous magical attacks.
* Fire/Cold/Electric/Acid resistance: Self-explanatory.
* Poison resistance: Prevents your character from being poisoned.
* Mind resistance: resist mind-affecting magic like confusion or fear. Mind
resistance also reduces the damage taken by mind attacks which some monsters
possess. Mind damage uses the same words as physical damage, but the attack
will typically include wordes like "psionic" or "psychic" in the description.
