## 50 vit or 20 all resist?

Which is better? Im lvl 50

EDIT: So I ended up getting some cheap rings to test this and here is what I found:

Sacrificing 84 Vit for 30 All Res:

Lowered my max health by 7%
(New HP - 31344, Old HP - 33696)

Reduces damage from all sources by 5.73%
(Old reduction - 24.03%, New reduction - 28.38%)

So just looking at those numbers, it seems like vit is still more useful somehow

I actually have a similar question quite often. I have an amulet on my level 60 wizard that gives me 90 intelligence and 187 vitality. I have seen amulets that give like 100 intelligence 80 vitality but +25 all resists. So I am not sure if that 25 all resists is more important than the 107 vitality I lose.

It depends on a lot of your other stats but I'd imagine 20 all resists will almost always be better than 50 vit

I don't understand the math

I did 24.03/28.38 to find the exact % OF the % gained if that makes sense lol

It's neither.

Before you were taking 75.97% of a monster's damage (i.e., reducing all damage by 24.03%), after you take 71.62% of a monster's damage, which is a spread of 4.35%, but is really a 5.73% reduction in actual damage taken relative to your beginning point (75.97x = 4.35 = 5.725944%)

Remember, going from, in the extreme case, 98% damage reduction to 99% damage reduction looks like only 1%, but it means you're taking 50% less damage than you were before (taking 2% before and 1% after).
