## Mod: " reduces damage from elites X%" what does it mean? /PC

Does it mean ranged elites? melee elites? does it reduced damage from molten, poison damage from elites etc?

Havent found many on AH that have mods like mine [ brigands]...

hero hold is bidding at900k and buy out 1.2 mil
Mine worth that?

should be ALL damage.

Represents a total 7.5% EH gain against elites (1/.93)
Comparing it to the DR you get from a comparable AR affix:
EH ratio at level 63: 1 + 0.2*R/63
Add some some unknown offset x, divide by original EH ratio, set that new ratio to 1.075:
[1 + 0.2(R + x)/63]/[1+ 0.2R/63] = 1/(1-0.07)
[1 + 0.2(R + x)] = [1 + 0.2R]/(1-0.07)
Solve for x:
x = ([1 + 0.2R]/[1 - 0.07] - 1)/0.2 - R
Now you have a plot showing you how much +resist that %DR vs elites is worth.

Suppose you have 700 resist all. Read across the X axis to 700. Find the y value (+resist offset for 7.5% additional EHP).
This plot says that affix is worth the same amount of EH as 50 all resist.
If you had 1200 all resist, that same affix would be worth as much as a +90 to all resist.

As you can see the %DR vs elites affix improves significantly (relative to the mod budget) as your other defensive stats improve.

Hope this helps.

so for farming elites it's good no?
but is it worth 800k+ on AH?

or armor with reduce vs elites is excellent combined with res all mod?

I'm saying it can be the strongest defensive stat in the game, but you need a lot of +res all and +armor to make it so.

currently my res all is around 200-350 with war cry on, and armor with no shield is only 4.5k...

But i manage farming a1, and dual wield LoH weapons
