      Unhappy Taking boost from every school?

      my friend is a life school wizard and he's been taking boost damage from every school, despite having a piece of gear that gives +1% resist to all schools. reason being?

      Cool Re: Taking boost from every school?

      1% resist, by itself, isn't really that much help. However, there are great jewels that you can buy in Unicorn Lane that give up to 26 resist each for all schools. The only problem is they can only be bought with Arena Tickets which you can get from PvP or doing the Dailies. They come in different levels and strength based on level. They also get more expensive at each level. This means it will take a little time, but you can get over 100%.

      I have 4 of them on all my wizards which in addition to gear and pet boosts keep me in good shape. I can focus more on attacks than traps and defeat faster.

      You shouldn't be taking boosted damage in PVE the way enemies do. When the game says you're getting boosted upon, it's a visual glitch that appears when you're attacked and can only resist a minuscule amount of damage. Like 1% Resist. This also comes up if an enemy has enough Pierce to bring your Resist down to around 1% as well. You aren't taking any bonus damage.

      It is technically possible to get over 100% resist, but those jewels won't help much. They only give flat resist, which reduces the damage you take after resists.

      That is true to a certain degree, but then again, there is no real 100% of anything. The OP was basicaly looking for a way to understand and increase resistance, and this is one of several ways to do just that. Simply put, the higher your percentage, the better the resistance. As I stated, I have done this with all my wizards, including a Life wizard and found it to be very helpful as a starting point.

      It is important to remember that having a solid balance between resistance, damage and pierce is vital. I wasn't trying to address the entire spectrum, just making one simple suggestion.

      I still remember when the game first came out of Beta, and the stats were so much simpler then. So, with that in mind, we take one step at a time, learn and adjust our stats based on the school and persons fighting/playing style. This is an entirely different and more complex discussion that has been going on for years and years; and will be for many years to come.

      Re: Taking boost from every school?

      After a good 9 years of gameplay, I stumbled upon the badger that sells the defense jewels the original post talked about.

      And after training 6 major pets with at least 5 having the Proof/Defy setup, I can't recall if both the pets used and the defensive jewels are added into defense combined or separate.

      In addition, I only remember seeing one person that ever had IMMUNITY to everything and that occurred in the Abandoned House under Golem Court.
