As my old sergeant-major used to say, ask a stupid question once and be a fool for a day, keep it to yourself and be an idiot forever.
So, I thought I knew all there was to know about Armour when Defence was removed as an attribute; and even after Intelligence changed from +health from orbs to Resistances I stayed confident.
And then my knowledge was turned on its head by people posting about Physical Resistance (some of you may know which thread I'm referring to, in the Barbarian forum) and how it was also affected by Intelligence.
Armour decreases damage from ALL sources. Strength adds to armour.
Resistances decrease damage from the specific source they resist. Intelligence adds to ALL resistances.
Can a kind soul here, equipped with the numbers and/or the necessary math and the patience to explain it at high-school level, please tell me: What, if any, are the defensive differences between an increase in Strength and an increase in Intelligence?
Thank you very much in advance, Hardrock (hehehe) at al.
