Didn't i just say 50%?


I said that because I thought maximum amount of minion resistances taken into consideration was 50. I don’t know where I read that. I don’t use summons often and ot shows haha

Also if I’m not mistaken having an additional 50% minion resistances on gear allows them to reach 75% in nightmare and 25% in hell. You can’t go higher if I’m right.

Anyone can confirm this ?


Unless it changed in Sigma, minion res works like this:

Summoned minions gain +15% per Skill Point into a summon skill (hard or soft point), up to 75%.

An additional +25% from gear/Charms/etc. will make them immune in Normal, and +75% will make them immune in Nightmare.
In Hell, that additional +75% will give them 50% total res, which is the highest it can go in Hell.

There's technically no "cap" on minion res, but since they can't utilize more than what's listed, it's basically a distinction without a difference.

Thanks. Still theorycrafting my char and this helped me out.

Another random question here. Existing characters will get the benefit of enhanced regular quests if they completed it before ?

unlikely. you'll have to do the quest again (i.e. start new), I'd imagine.

Is there any way to cube either the Horadric Staff or Khalim's Will or will I have do those quests in every difficulty?

In older versions of Median, you could shortcut those with a cube recipe.
Now just spend 5 minutes and do them, such wow.

Since Hammer of Zerae still deals WDM even though it's a spell... does attack rating still need to be increased for a better chance to hit?

I don't actually know the answer to that question even tho i played it, but you dont need to worry about attack rating since its a dex stacking build.

I'm busy theory crafting a Caster Amazon so going full energy... hence the query on Attack Rating :mrgreen:
